Unless you are going for the crab, don't bother. Our very first meal in Arlington and it was not good at all. The hubs ordered the grilled salmon meal and I the lobster linguine. He ended up with a much more expensive scallop meal with...More

Ordered Salmon and they brought me undercooked scallops with nasty beans and no flavor rice! She apologized and I requested mashed potatoes. Had to add butter, salt, pepper, and some lobster sauce from my wife's linguini. Nice waitress, but should write down orders. WAY TOO...More

They book up fast! Make reservations as early as possible. If you go in the summer, it is hot inside and out. Order lots of beer to keep you cool! Great crabs. Great service. Great atmosphere. True crab house close to DC!

This is a summertime family favorite. Love eating on their patio. Always busy on weekends. Recommend reservations. Was there for lunch when I saw the bushel baskets of crabs being delivered. One of my favorites is the softshell crab sandwich.

This restaurant was within walking distance from the Virginian Suites where I stayed and came highly recommended. I am happy I tried them. Food was perfectly seasoned, I only wish the portions were bigger. Ordered take-out and it was ready promptly in 15mins.

This is a neighborhood restaurant visited mostly by military personnel from Fort Myer. There is little ambiance but the food, especially the seafood is excellent.

You won't stumble upon this place, since it's not on an obvious street. Sometimes those are the best places, because visitors have to seek it out. :) Best place for crabs and a nice cool beer!
