“Definative stop on our trips to OC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We found this place last year by accident - loved it then and couldnt wait to go back this year. Since last Sept they have expanded and added a sit down dining room - rustic, but clean and neat and serves the purpose.
Food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. The shrimp tacos are delicious and quite filling, the scallop appetizer was more than I have gotten on meals that cost double - and order up one of their home made sides or sweet potatoe fries and you've got yourself a full meal.
Most people eat the crabs by the tray -full!! Very reasonalbe and spiced just right.
And dont forget to try the free sample of shrimp!

“Not ready to keep up with Tripadvisor customers....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We choose to go because of the ratings to Tripadvisor.... but they were not ready for the crowds.... there were only 2 servers and we had to wait to eat since one of the servers gave my Crab Cake Sliders to another customer... then took 40 minutes to get the check. But I have faith that they will improve their service since their food is very good.... Joe, the owner, was trying his best to keep the customers happy during their wait....

“Fresh Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We've passed this place so many times. It was only by reading Travel Advisor did we learn what we were missing. The Shrimp Taco was delicious --lots of plump shrimp and fresh ingredients. Two huge soft tacos (the size of wraps). Don't miss the Boom-Boom sauce. My husband had the Oyster Po-boy. Oysters great but could have used afew more oysters to fill the sandwich. Coconut shrimp appetizer cooked perfectly. Great friendly service with good recommendations. We'll try the Scallop Chetti next time. We walked out with the Almond Joy Smith Island Baby cake for later!!

“Top notch seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Best crab cakes I've eaten. Great steamed clams. Also try the fried green tomatoes and fried green beans. Waitress couldn't have been more attentive. Owner came over afterwards and asked how we enjoyed our food. One great experience for our party of 4.
