We ate dinner there today. My friend and I had the fried chicken. It was OUTSTANDING. The crust was real crispy and the meat was Very Moist and Very Tasty. One had the crab cake sandwich and the other had the shrimp salad sandwich. Both were Very Good. We would recommend this place for dinner.

My friend and I ate there for dinner. I had the creamed clam soup which was advertised as "award winning" and I can see how it was. The soup was delicious with a generous amount of crab. My friend ordered the Crab Imperial and I ordered the steamers. Both were delicious! The service was prompt without making us feel rushed.... More

We've never had an all you can eat crab meal and we were loving the entire experience: the crab was tasty, the corn was sweet, and we made a huge mess. All in all, a quite satisfying meal!
