We previously ate at Kevin's and enjoyed the crab and shrimp however; when we took our out of town family for "a nice seafood meal" we were horribly disappointed. I don't know which was worse, the food or the service. Our server (Donna) was drunk, or at least she smelled of bourbon. She was, without a doubt, the worse server... More

Our family of 11 ate at Kevin's Crab shack and it was amazing. Lovely staff and wonderful food. This was 7 adults and 4 children. Staff were really friendly and could'nt do enough for us. So nice for all our family to be together and enjoying dinner.

Three real blue crabs with shrimp, potatoes and corn covered in Old Bay, garlic and butter. The food is delicious. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They will show you the tricks of getting all the delicious crab meat out too!

Celebrated my 70th birthday here and enjoyed a friendly, comfortable, and relaxing atmosphere with very good food and lots of personal attention. Highly recommend for special occasions and fun-filled outing. We delayed our departure as we were having so much fun!

Kevin's is a great destination if you love good seafood and good variety of great southern sides like fried okra and greens. Service is really fast considering the fact that everything is prepared to your order. Portions are HUGE and most of our party wound up accepting the offered take-home boxes. Prices are not what I'd call cheap, but very... More

So good! What a friendly little hole-in-the-wall (my favorite kind of place). I ordered the fresh mullet because our super friendly waitress recommended it. Oh, my! The batter, first off, is so good and flavorful! The mullet was a tender white fish with big bones -- it was the whole fish -- easy to navigate around the bones for that... More

We were looking for a little different and off the beaten path What we found was mouthwatering and fantastic. There were 5 of us and we all got something different. Rib & pulled pork with coleslaw - absolutely fantastic. Wings and fries (mustard sauce...mmmmm)- lots of meat on the wings. Shrimp and greens- wow! And finally the special, blue crabs.... More

Casual greatness! BBQ Ribs, fried shrimp and Blue Crab Heaven. The ribs are beyond phenomenal. Smoked to perfection, the ribs are juicy and seasoned just right. Honey mustard sauce or dry... They are awesome. Fried shrimp are the very best anywhere. Never frozen and fresh daily, they peel and devein them, hand dip them and they're crunchy and out of... More

Greetings when you walk into the restaurant. " Welcome to Kevin's." The waitresses are very attentive & pleasant. The restaurant is very clean and spacious. We enjoyed the baked basa fish with veggies. The Caribbean oxtails were delicious. The cooks also come out to make sure you enjoyed your meal.
