Didn't even eat. Went in, was seated.......no service for about 15 minutes. One couple came and the waitress went right to them. Another waitress was cleaning a table, I got her attention and asked if any was going to come and service our table, she stated they will be right with us. STILL waited for about 10 more minutes, after... More

We ordered a dozen of their x-large crabs and it was amazing. Kids loved it and the service was friendly and quick, the only complain I have is that the fountain drinks are not free refill.

We stopped by for lunch. My buddy had crabs and I had chicken and shrimp That was some of the best chicken I've ever eaten. The fried shrimp was good too. The price was right too. I will be visiting this place next year.....

I enjoyed my shrimp meal. They have limited salad dressing flavors. A total of 3. It was about double the price I was pay in my land-locked state. My friend ordered a ham sub (non-seafood eater). The sun was a good size and loaded with ham.

This restaurant has pretty good food...it's a hole in the wall type of place with decent food without breaking the bank. One of the many seafood eateries down there. I chose this one out of 3 because the food is said to be good and the waitresses are friendly. I would hate to go for dinner and the service sucks.... More

The traditional cooking with Old Bay and fresh caught crabs are the best item on the menu. Getting to eat them on butcher paper with a wooden hammer and bare hands while having a cold beer is a treat not to miss when in Ocean City. Had the all you can eat special and ate for over an hour. No... More

I ordered the Broiled platter, all of my food was over cooked and chewy, the waitress dropped a tray of used cups that were half full and wet up my clothes and feet, and only said sorry and kept going.

This is just a little restaurant with no frills but wonderful waitstaff, service and food. We decided to have all you can eat Maryland crab and man did we eat. The waitress kept bringing as we needed and we had the best fried chicken ever as well as corn on the cob. It was a great night with the food... More
