We ate here twice because it was across the street from our hotel. The first night my daughter had the seafood pasta which she said was great. I had the ribs, grits and fried corn on the cob. The ribs were ok but a little dry on the ends. We went again the second night because there was a dessert... More

The savor of wonderful Cajun influence by the owner and staff make this what I call the vacation eatery. My opinion is if you eat great food, have great service, you will keep returning for your favorites. Well, mine is grits, seasoned fish and shrimp, and perfectly cooked meat. I am reviewing this once but have eaten there many, many... More

It had been a while since we had been back to Dirty Dick's and we loved it before on many occasions. Glad to say it is still our FAVORITE spot at the beach! Our waiter, Beau, was great! We even met the Owners again who came by to check on their guests to make sure all was well. Can't wait... More

We ate there last weekend and everything we ordered was exceptional. The red snapper was fresh, light and delicious! King crab was fantastic too! Mario was our waiter and he was very attentive. Overall, our experience was spot on. We'll definitely be back!

From the moment we sat down, our service was on-point, and the meals that followed were superb! Generous portions of fresh seafood served with an eclectic New Orleans flare. We have been to the many other locations of Dirty Dick's Crab House throughout the South and have never been disappointed! Consistency is their thing and we know we can count... More

After an exhausting day with three kids at the beach, we went to Dirty Dicks. We were pleasantly surprised to have little wait, great service and delicious food! They brought us hush puppies and honestly I could've eaten them for a meal. They were phenomenal!

The food was not great, the wait was too long and it was the most expensive meal we had during our week of vacation. Will not be going here again. Way overpriced for the quality

Got here around 5:45 and fortunately had no wait. Nadia, our server, was very attentive despite having several tables. The food was delicious and would recommend eating here while at PCB.

Description
We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
