“Update the Krusty Crab.”

Party of ten, called ahead so we were seated right away. Crab cake for appetizer worked out great. Most of menu is deep fried. The place is a good local spot needs to be updated badly!

I've been coming here since I can remember. The food is great and the waiters are friendly. The prices are cheap and I always enjoy coming here.

“Devil Crab Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

I love Linda's deviled crabs. Yes, they have a wonderful thick breading with crunchy fried coating and crabmeat centers, just like they are supposed to. I love the crunchy exterior and the moistness of the breading surrounding the crab centers. All you need is a little crystal hot sauce and you have tasted a local favorite. They offer a deviled crab platter with 2 deviled crabs and 2 sides. I usually get french fries and cole slaw at a reasonable price.

“Just o.k.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We had fried grouper and deviled crab. The former was great - light flavorful breading and not fishy at all. The latter was terrible - thick doughy coating and they looked like small footballs. What made it bad was that the waitress recommended the deviled crab! We ordered corn fritters for an appetizer which were 12 small yummy fried nuggets of a corn batter. The cole slaw wasn't bad and the baked beans were in a flavorful sweet barbque sauce. The waitress was friendly enough, just made a bad recommendation on the deviled crab. The place looked like it used to be an old gas station. The interior needs some serious updating. The lights went out twice while we were there due to a blown breaker. Overall, there must be better places to eat. We probably won't go back.
