The Crabcake Factory has a casual atmosphere, fast service, and very good food. I ordered the crabcake, baked potato and coleslaw. Everything was delicious. Others in our party were satisfied and loved the specialty drinks they ordered.

The back deck over the marsh had a delicious breeze! Best and most relaxing... cocktails were Great! Take home Caesar salad and crab cake were lackluster at best! Normal crappy Caeser dressing and average crabcake... sorry it's what I thought.
