The crabs were great! Good size and seasoning! The interior of the place is very crowded! Servers looked to be bumping into the tables in the middle quite often. Our server was incredibly slow but this would not stop me from visiting again

We all ordered carry out. One went to pick it up. Two of us ordered the Caesar salad with crab and shrimp. Although it was tasty, there was only about a tablespoon of crab meat on the salad. Not worth the $15 paid.

The locals are keeping this one all to themselves, but if you’re patient and lucky enough to find it, you won’t be disappointed. Great seafood, wonderful service and reasonably priced. Not to be missed!

Not sure, but I do believe they do have call ahead. We had a group of 11 and were seated immediately however I did not make the plans for eating here so I can not say positively that they do have call ahead seating.
