Large at $99. Fatty and full. Excellent service from Joshua upstairs in original bldg. Grilled oysters are a great appetizer. They come out quick and hot. Past few trips on shoulder seasons have been good but not great crabs. These were great.

Good food and good service. The crab bag is always impressive, large crabs with just the right amount of Old Bay seasoning. The Oyster Rockefeller was also a hit with my family. Personally, I prefer the raw fresh oysters.

This restaurant was suggested by the hotel clerk, and she was spot on! There was approximately a half hour wait for a table, but very worth it. The service was adequate, and the food was brought out in a timely fashion. Everything we ordered, from...More
