Super busy, especially on all you can eat crab legs night. We always get the daily fish special which is a generous portion. The older male bartender is fun and attentive. Be prepared to wait during popularv times.

It's a great place for a burger, beers and the crablegs are the best. It's usually crowded but has a great enough atmosphere that makes it fun rather than a burden if theres a wait or if you feel sandwhiched among people.

I have eaten at this restaurant back when it was the Charlie horse saloon, and even now! Always great food and there is something for everyone! The crab legs have never once been a disappointment l! Always sweet and cooked perfectly! If it's your first time in Ormond or not, this place will not disappoint!

Girlfriend and I were recommended to this restaurant by another family. We decided to try it out and we are glad we did! 5 of us was a 45 minute wait, that didn't have many five seat tables which was odd, so we pulled a chair up to the end of a booth. Pricing is decent, cheaper than most places... More

Get there early this place gets packed and during peak season expect a wait if you get there after 5:30. It's worth the wait. Crabs are some of the best we've had. Always cooked to perfection. Loud family atmosphere. Service always excellent.

We got there on a weeknight about 6:30 and waited 70 minutes as we were told we would be. Once seated, the food and service was fast and excellent! Had crab legs, shrimp, and key lime pie....the pie was AMAZING so save room for it!

We went around 8:30 pm so our wait would be short. We had about a 30 minute wait to be seated. As always the crab legs are to die for! We didn't do the AYCE this year...thought $41.99 was a little pricey. When our food came the mashed potatoes were cold and watery. I asked the waitress to zap the... More

Our family made the journey from Daytona Beach Shores due to a friend's recommendation. We were not disappointed. The wait for a party of 10 was about 45 minutes. A park across the street was a good place for the kids to be entertained. Service was friendly and fast with plenty of menu options for everyone. Steamed crab slightly overcooked... More

We arrived around 4:30 and were promptly seated, waited on, and served. Portions were huge and food quality was next to none. The place was packed with many waiting to be seated at 5:30 when we left. Be sure to arrive early if you do not want to wait. Daily specials are listed on their Facebook or website. They have... More
