It is not cheap yet it is full everyday. The crabs are fresh and most of the time you have to wait unless your are there early. A little over rated for the price and service. Well if you don't want the hassle to drive to the coastal town for crabs then head over to Fatty Crab.

We had dinners at this restaurant for several times and the seafood were very fresh :) The staff were very attentive as well :) But the waiting hours were quite long :( We had been waiting for almost 2 hours during our last trip in Dec 2015.

The queue is a killer wait...otherwise it s the place to be. The food is nothing to shout about. The main killer dish would be the chicken wings. Every time, the price keeps increasing. Where will it settle is anyone s guest.

Normally, I am happy to write good reviews for restaurants, but the experience I had here is just unforgettable. Firstly, we had to wait too long for a table, we were there around 6.00pm, on a Thursday. Then, we had to wait for our crab dishes, meanwhile we were recommended to have some chicken wings (I wonder why???) Finally, after... More
