It was my first time here. We called in to make the reservation and were told that they were not excepting them. So when we came the place was full, we had to hit the bar and grab the last 2 available sits. Guy, the bartender, was nice but didn't ask if we wanted something to eat together with our beer, so we had to flag him down constantly to ask for refills and more crab legs. Oh, crab legs...Every Wednesday they have a special - unlimited crab legs, just for 20 bucks. We are definitely coming back for the great value, but have to make sure that somebody else is going to serve us.

The waitress was friendly and quick. Excellent draft beer selection and rest vibe is positive. I ordered a seafood salad but it was mostly fresh lettuce. The shrimp is served cold and it was not very fresh, one of the shrimp was suspicious so I stop eating them. The snow crab meat was ok but scarce. For an 18 dollar salad I was expecting more. Overall this restaurant is ok but overpriced. I could afford lunch at Opus 9 With the amount of money we spent here.

Good food, great service. A local restaurant, where you can go for lunch or dinner. We were there last night for all you can eat snow crab lags, they were great. Each order was the same size as the first and they did not keep you waiting a long time between orders. Before we were done with the first the second order arrived. It is nice to go to a restaurant in Williamsburg that does not close down after 9:00 PM.
