I would go there again to eat the seasoned crabs. My daughter had the crab cakes which were excellent for the price. It was full of crab meat with no fillers. The nice server kept my tray filled with crabs. I would eat there again.

We almost drove pass this hole in the wall and they try to nickel and dime you for the refills and rolls but the crabs are outrageously fantastic. The server was from Romania and very insulting but the crabs made up for it. Definitely would go back but I would have to take an Ambient to avoid exercising my slap... More

Great crabs! I would recommend getting the all you can eat special for 26.99. You really can't beat that for the quality of the crabs!

This is your typical crab house in Ocean City. I didn't order the crabs but a seafood platter, broiled. The flounder on the plate was inedible because it was overcooked and dry, the shrimps and scallops were rubbery and the only saving grace was the small crabcake which was so/so at best. I told my server that the flounder was... More

We arrived and we're seated right away. Our server Timeea was excellent. We all ordered the all you can eat crabs, and we never ran out. She made sure we had everything we needed and was prompt to return with whatever we asked for. Our only complaint is with the drink refills. So when we return next year we will... More

The service was good and the large crabs were very large. Reasonably priced. Delicious. The Alaskan crab legs were also delish.

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.

Thank baccpit
