I love this place for good southern fried seafood. Their devil crabs remind of the ones I used to get in Y-Bor city handmade and tasty. There cakes are made fresh and make for a great desert!

I have tried to eat here twice now - and I won't be trying again. All their seafood is either fried or swimming in butter/grease and has no flavor. Overpriced and not tasty! Yuck!

We love this restaurant. The best place for miles to get a good cuban Devilcrab. If you have never had a cuban Devilcrab then you are missing out. Go see them and try one today.

I had crab, excellent. 2 big crab balls with coleslaw. Wife had seafood chowder, again very good. Priced very fair. Good service, quick meal. Venue is small and has that mom/pop feel of family restraunt. Would go back again
