Good crabs but lousy service and rude - very expensive - won't go there again - It used to be a great place but I think it got too big for itself

You go dressed as you want. They throw brown paper down on the table. You get fresh delicious seafood that is cooked perfectly and tended by a great wait staff. The clambake was too much to finish but wonderful!

The place is small, informal and looks like a shack. The waitresses are helpful, friendly and most important to us was that the food was great. Their He-Crab soup was outstanding and so were the crab dishes that we ordered. There are patron signed dollar bills tacked to the ceiling and walls that are collected and then given to a... More

We've been wanting to try this place but it's a little far away. Today we were in the area and had dinner here. It's not a fancy place, but the food is terrific and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We had garlic crabs and a crab sampler. Also tried Tex mex onion straws. Everything was great! They cover... More

If you're a fish lover you absolutely need to make the 40 minute drive from the Shore to eat here. They have fresh everything that is fish related and they know how to prepare it all!!! Our four year old grandson loves the crabs and begged for crabs every night after we ate here! It's not fancy but the food... More

A Maryland-style crab house, the only "REAL" crab house in South Jersey! Indoor picnic tables, brown paper and rolls of paper towels on the table! Casual seafood restaurant featuring Jumbo Lobster Tails, Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and fresh Blue Claw Crabs. The "Crab Sampler" is highly recommended, as is the Jersey Shore Clambake in the summer. Steaks and pasta also on the menu. Homemade Seafood Gumbo. Full liquor bar with 7 beers on tap. Try a Crabby Mary, the house signature cocktail!
