Be were the arctic bay is spice and to us tastes similar to Cajun seasoning which we didn't like. No spices for us. So just watch it. Lots of fried... read more

My friend and I decided to come here after attending an expo at the South Towne Expo Center. For a Saturday afternoon it was dead. We were seated promptly and were perusing the menu. The table seated behind us must have been friends of one of the waitresses because the waitress stood and chatted with them for some time. As... More

I had the seaside platter, scallops, fish. Shrimp. It was really good. My friend had the east coast platter which had a stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon that was great. Only thing that went wrong, our calamari appetizer was forgotten. It was brought right after our meal was set down by the manager who apologized and told us there would... More

This was a special occasion family outing for us. (2 adults- 2 kids). Our waiter Cinch yes that's his name. Is a personality all his own. However he is the perfect balance between chatty and professional. Lets start off fro the beginning: 1. We walked in and were seated. We ordered our drinks and they were brought out very promptly....

We came here as a Mothers Day choice. Our waitress, Bailee, was helpful, but was lacking in personality. After our meal was delivered, it was quite a long time before Bailee came back to check on our status. We ordered one of the buckets and the Steak and Shrimp plate. The steak wad to be medium, but it came out... More

I went for an early dinner at Joe’s Crab Shack with my wife, step-daughter, and her boyfriend on Friday, April 17, 2015. For those who have not been to Joe’s: They set the table with some of the usual things, like salt and pepper shakers (in pint bottles), but they also include a roll of brown paper towels and a...

Food was good, but it was offset by the service. It took Ryan at least 10 minutes to bring us a beer. Then I felt rushed by him because he came back soon after we got our meals to see if we needed boxes and asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. He back shortly thereafter to see... More

My husband and son always order the Samuel Adams steam pots 2 each & 2 orders of the clams. Nothing goes to waste. You get crab, corn, a couple of red potatoes, andouille sausage & corn on the cob. Nothing goes to waste. I am a vegetarian but I found I love the crab nachos minus the crab. I always... More
