I love this place!

I truly love this place. Nostalgia at its finest. I used to come here for my birthday dinner every year. Now, I can afford it a little more, but still always think of those fond memories.

The crab here was good, howeve...

The crab here was good, however the service left something to be desired, we had to wait for 20 minutes once we were seated before anyone came to our table. Those around us were helped immediately.

To go or To go in the trash?

I used to love this place (years ago), tonight we got 3 meals to go, luke warm SOGGY Mahi Mahi , less than ONE cup of rice pilaf for a side, and a sliced raw tomato for the other side (not even salted). The crab cakes were not even as good as Albertsons deli (that you heat up at home) This place charged like a top notch restaurant yet sold my friends and i absolute GARBAGE and tiny portions at that! I will never wast... view more

Best seafood this side of Maine

Coming from Maine, it's hard to impress me with seafood. I can't say much about Lobster as I haven't had it here yet, but the chilled cracked crab is a must.

Great food; Great atmosphere

This place emanates awesomeness. From the location, to the food, to the decor, it's pure ecstasy. Shrimp kabobs are a must have there.

Great family owned business--food is fantastic --charming interior, friendly staff---where the locals eat--but gets very busy.
