This was our first time here this year for Happy Hour. Happy Hour is 3-6PM at the bar only. Domestic drafts are $2.50, served in a plastic cup. We had the flatbread pizza ($5), 1 lb. mussels ($5), crab cake sliders ($7) and Daisy's Roll ($10) a roast beef sandwich with dipping sauce and home made chips. The pizza had lots of cheese, little sauce (not bad), the mussels were a little cool, the melted butter poured over the mussels was kind of solidified, the sliders had lump crab meat (2 per order) and the roast beef was very good. Not a bad happy hour. We'll try it again in a month or two.

Best Crab Cake I've had in 20 years. The best thing is that in addition to all the menu items featuring crab and crab cakes, they have a section for "Justa Crab Cake" for $11.95 for a 5 oz crab cake.

It was wonderful.

My family had cheesesteaks, and they said they were great.

If you like crab, this is the place.

It does get crowded and is not a large place, and everyone came in at once the night we were there, so I understand the comments about slow service, but we were 5 minutes ahead of the crowd, got great service, and great food.

Four of us visited crabcake factory on a saturday morning in June. My friend had been there before and raved about the bacon bloody marys. A couple of girls ordered those and said they were great. They came with what looked like a full side serving of bacon! Between the 4 of us, we ordered the breakfast tacos, a couple of breakfast skillets, and the breakfast slamwich. All of the food was delicious, and substantial portions. We had no complaints about the food at all, which is the only reason we might go back in the future despite the service. The girls who ordered bacon bloody marys also asked for water, which the server did not bring until asked a second time. And then she only brought one glass. She seemed in a rush to get us out the door. They were going to order another round of the bloody marys but she brought the check with out asking if we needed/wanted anything else. Also, this restaurant (and apparently a lot of others in OC) does not split checks. We weren't prepared for that, so one person had to put the entire bill on their card. I also didn't like the setup of where we were seated. The four of us were seated at a table that was a booth on one side and chairs on the other. Not really a big deal, but since the booth side ran the length of the restaurant, there were several tables along the booth. The table next to ours was extremely close. When the server was taking their order, she barely had room to stand between the tables and her rear end was in my face. I wish I could give this place a better review because the food was so good, but unfortunately the service was just not good enough.

We had a recommendation from our dental hygenist (she knows us better than we thought) to try this hole in the wall on the corner of 120th. By the menu we could see the Bloody Mary's would peak our interest but when Rachel described them we really had to go for it (we like the "It's 5 O'clock Somewhere rule but seldom use it).
Let's just say the Bacon Bloody Mary was topped with three huge bacon slices, a couple of spicy green beans and a rim covered with Old Bay. Heavy on heat and vodka they are a great wake-up and relaxer all in one.
Food was excellent and portions generous! We have this on our 'Return List' for all future visits. We also need to follow up with our hygenist in about 6 months.
