“Had a pretty good time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Cool place to sit outside and enjoy some drinks. Food was okay but took awhile and you order it and pick it up from a window. Use to like the crab races, don't know if they still do that.

“Monster peel and eat shrimp!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Went here last summer because we were wanting crab legs, which were really good. They were snow crab in a bucket that I'm thinking cost around $15. We were satisfied there with no problem. The big surprise was the huge peel and eat shrimp we ordered, probably 20 or so on a plate and it was around 12 bucks.

Good value and pretty good seafood if you need to curve a crab leg appetite!

As mentioned the ordering is a bit different, you'll have a server for drinks only, you order at a window, give a name, then they call you when its ready!! Enjoy!!

“Fun experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Been there several times and love it every time. Takes a bit to get used to the ordering process. You have to order drinks at the bar and food at a separate food bar. Be ready to order when you get up there because they're busy! Crawfish bites are always good and the crab claws are excellent but they run out all the time. Saturday afternoons they have crab races and late evenings they have vibrator races. Yes, vibrator races.

“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Okay food, not great, the kids loved feeding the fish. Difficult to find from land, and ordering is difficult with a large group since you have to order drinks at bar and order your food separately at the kitchen window.
