All you can eat crab legs for 30 Dollars is pretty good deal. Beside of sea food they also offer stakes, chicken, salad bar, deserts, soups,.. From 170 items to choose from there is something for everyone. The stuff was super nice and helpful. I had an amazing experience.

I visited this restaurant and I had wonderful experience. The staff was really helpful, especially the bussers. Food was also good, including crab legs and steaks. But green mussels with mustard sauce were the best thing ever!
