A group of us were in OC for an event. We ate here as the two other places we tried had a long wait. The empty tables should have tipped us off. Food ranged from fair to terrible. Crab cakes were overlooked. Fries were cold. Go elsewhere... Even if you have to wait.

I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a bit of a dive, but it is clean and the staff is friendly. And what could be better than all you can eat crabs? Every crab we ate was fresh, sweet and delicious! We left happy and satisfied.

I have been coming to PGN for the last 10 years. I have to say this year, the owner, did a great job hiring their staff. On Thursday 9/8/16, my dining experience was worthy of this post. The customer service I personally received was outstanding! It's almost a rarity these days that you have anyone in the service industry have... More

Crabs are really good. Service is okay. Corn on the cob....not so good. I will go back any day for the crabs. Also they should remodel after all it is 2016!

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!
