I’ve been wanting to try this place for years. I was finally back home to visit family and stopped in. We ordered the crab melt, GF crab melt, fried shrimp platter, fried pickles and kids chicken tenders meal. Everything was SO good. Loved the coleslaw....It was all perfect. Service was great. Will definitely be back this summer when we visit againMore

The food here is fresh. They braise their own pork belly. And most everything is made from scratch. The owners really care about their customers but also their employees. And their food is great!! I’ve eaten here many times and can say I’ve never had...a bad meal.More

I LOVE DDD. But Guy, you are out of your mind if you think this place was worth your visit. The crab cake sandwich was greazy as F*** and I would not feed the pork belly sandwich to my dogs. You guys

After a satisfying day of birding in southern Jersey we were feeling a bit peckish and had a hankering for seafood so we checked with our go to advisor, TripAdvisor, and based on the positive reviews off we went with the anticipation of having a...great meal, and yes we were not disappointed. The setting was casual, inviting with friendly service. I enjoyed the scrumptious supreme crabcake sandwich and as described it was loaded with grilled lump crap. I was delighted that the crabcake was mostly crab not filler and also lacked the flavor of pepper which I do not enjoy. The crab tasted fresh and delicious, simply seasoned with what tasted like Old Bay. Even more than the sandwich I liked their famous cream of crab soup. Loaded with crab bits it was smooth and scrumptious. I advise ordering the cup because the bowl cost $3.25 more and was not substantially larger.More

I ordered a cheesesteak which was just average. They charge $3.50 extra for fried onions and tomatoes on a cheesesteak! Need I say more??????

The Crab Cake Melt is the best you will ever have! All real crabmeat! Definitely get it on Texas Toast. Guy Fieri's favorite and mine, too! And staff is always friendly! Don't miss this hidden gem!

Ordered the crab melt and the pork belly reuben. Both extremely greasy which I can deal with and sort of expected for this type of place. What I did not expect was a pork belly sandwich with almost no meat and a big slab of...fat.More

We wanted to eat somewhere not in Ocean City on the way back home. Found this spot online and couldn't resist the enticement of crab and grilled cheese. What a great little spot. Not fancy (which was what we wanted) with a very pleasant staff....Would stop there again next time.More

We decided to go here after my son saw this place featured on Diners, Drive in’s and Dives. Just didn’t have an off the hook experience or we missed the turn to flavor town. I should preface this review by saying that no one in...NJ knows how to make a crab cake. Calling these cakes Maryland style is a joke. I live in PA just over the MD line so we have Maryland crab cakes all the time. I’ve sworn off NJ crab cakes but got sucked in by the Triple D feature. We ordered several grilled cheese and added the carb cake. The crab cakes, even the supreme cakes were disappointing. Someone in the group ordered the pork belly sandwich and the belly was severely over cooked. The highlight of the meal was the cream of crab soup. Not overly hot but it was tasty. If you feel the need to see where Guy visited go ahead but don’t expect anything special.More

The food was good but the restaurant is very very small hole in the wall. Maybe 5 tables inside. Service was great the portions were very large so I would go hungry for sure.

After seeing this on Diners Drive inns and Dives we had to give it a try. There were 5 of us so we were able to sample a few different items. The crab melt and shore fries did not disappoint. Will be returning to sample...more.More

We ordered the Fries with Old Bay Seasoning, Mac and Cheese, Cream of Crab Soup and the classic Crab Cake Grilled Cheese Melt. The inside was comfortable and fun. The menu allows you to mix and match your sandwich, your mac and cheese or your...basket with all kinds of add-ins. I enjoyed the crab cake melt as well as the cream of crab (note it is a thicker bisque, not a soup very good). Fries were crispy and piping hot. Not the place to count calories but you can easily go over the bridge and walk the Ocean City boardwalk after your meal (which is what we did). I will go back and eat here again.More

Had the "Triple D melt" and it was fantastic! We just happened to drive by this place and decided to stop in for a bite to eat. I love watching Guy on Diner, drive ins and dives so it was a crazy surprise to find...out they filmed there in 2016. Food was great. Nothing fancy, just good food at a good price. Thanks guys, we will be back!More
