We recently went for the all can eat Blue Claw crabs. You are assured to leave satisfied. Be prepared to sit for a couple of hours and enjoy them either whole with Old Bay seasoning or already out of the shell seasoned with garlic. So many times seafood houses skimp on portion size but here you can eat until your... More

This place is amazing. Try the blue crabs garlic style. The crabs have been cleaned with the body removed leaving only the legs which are split in the middle making them much easier to eat. We had 4 orders of them for 4 of us. They suggested we order 2 and then place a later order for 2 more so... More

Had a great lunch of boiled shrimp and crab cakes. Came with corn and boiled potato, sweet tea. Shrimp were fresh and large and exceptionally well seasoned. Crab cake was huge, filled with fresh blue crab meat, and very tasty. Eclectic old home-turned-restaurant, with indoor seating or outdoor shared picnic table seating. Seafood market attached ....but seafood market pricing is... More

Little rustic atmosphere. Totally excellent service. Fantastic fresh seafood. My shrimp were huge and great. Crab and everything else great. Beer and wine only. Highly recommended.

The shrimp was great! We both ordered it fried. Lightly dusted with coating. Fries were hot and crunchy. The place is a little hole in the wall. Go for the food not the ambience.

If you are in the area this is a must stop. Casual eating and atmosphere and food is excellent. Blue crab, shrimp, oysters, clams, grouper are all fresh and delicious. Call or look on Facebook - if the blue crab catch was good it is all you can eat! Service exceptional- drinks refilled quickly and they will help you shuck... More

We heard about this place on TV so we thought we'd, give it a try. We assumed the crabs were flown in from the Maryland area. Wrong!! They are harvested locally from the nearby river and are abundant all year long, not just in summer. We ordered the all you can eat crabs for $30. Great value and delicious crabs.... More

I had the Myakka Slew Shrimp Creole and wasn't too impressed. My wife had She-Crab and the Shrimp and crab cakes. The soup was good but the shrimp and crab cakes were excellent. I wish I would have tried the crabs. Lots of people had ordered them and they looked great and were plentiful. I would stick with the fish,... More
