If you want crabs , go here. If you want other seafood , go elsewhere. The prices are sky high so be ready for ticket shock. The atmosphere and service are topnotch and the reason I didn't rate it lower.

The staff were friendly but the food was not so good.....and, there was not much of it. The crab legs were puny and the lobster was a joke. After digging around for meat I probably got less than half a cupful of the stuff........for over 40 dollars? The corn on the cob was okay but the 2 golf ball sized potatoes with skins on them were a sad sight. The lobster was of poor quality....very tough. Will not be going there again.

Prompt and friendly service. Food was good, not fantastic, but good. We have eaten at the Shreveport, Louisiana location and we noticed a definite difference in the amount of spice and seasoning. The New Orleans steam pot was bland compared to the S'port location. Otherwise, good place to eat.

Crowded, had to wait maybe ten minutes to be seated. Worth the wait. The food was excellant, waiters were great, service was wonderful. A truly great place to eat and have a lot of fun. Located on Branson Landing downtown, lots to do and many placed to choose from. Like good seafood, don't miss it.

The food and service was OK. We decided to sit outside on the patio and found it to be a bit boring. The food took a bit longer than we would have liked and wasn't extremely hot.
