This place is a bit off the beaten path, which I find to be a good thing. The all you can eat crab and corn is an amazing deal. So why 4 stars instead of 5? The crabs were delivered very frequently, but a separate waitress took the orders for soda, and other items and she was not around as much. The tables sit on sand which is really fun, except our table had a lot of sink in the sand slope which was bit uncomfortable. Soda's and water are a $1 a can with no refills, but compared to Woody's in town this is still a great deal. This is the kind of place that I always recommend; a hole in the wall with great food that has both locals and tourists.

We ate a bunch of different places for maryland blue crabs and this was definitley the best priced..all you can eat for 15 dollars!!! This is the best deal around...most places are at least 30 dollars a dozen and do not come with sides..this came with at least corn..The waitresses were also nice..The crabs were great and kept coming...If going to maryland to eat crabs this worth the stop and you get more then you pay!!

Every time I've gone there I've had a great experience. The staff are nice and so is the atmosphere. And best of all, the crabs are amazing!

My friends and I have been coming here twice a week since they opened up for the season. Yes, the flies can be a nuisance but you can't beat the crabs, price, service & atmosphere. We love Katrina & ask for her or Sarah by name...We often come straight from work with our scrubs still on :)

the service was great, they kept a steady supply of crabs coming and cleared the table as the pile accumulated. Had a great time!
