Happy Valentines Day. 🦀❤️
Crab Cake Feast for Two $35 Two five ounce colossal crab cakes, two homemade sides, and two crushes.

You know that feeling when you are mowing your lawn and getting bounced around on your tractor and it feels like you are going to have fluids come out of both ends? I never did until I ate the crabcake here for lunch. Dont get me wrong I love this place, but someone fell asleep at the wheel with the crab cakes this afternoon. Still giving you 5 stars though

The lump crab cake was excellent, as well as the hush puppies and crab dip.

Outstanding laid back atmosphere with great tasting food across ten menu. Between all of us, I think we had 2/3 of the menu on the picnic table. Patio is fabulous.

My Happy Place...Thanks to my girls Meghan, E, and Nicole ;) The best Maryland Crab Soup around....very good grilled hot dog and burgers and that Good Ole Fried Chicken on Tuesdays!!! Crabs, Crab Legs and Shrimp are great too!! I frequent at least 3 times a week!!!

Location is not close to home but it was well worth the drive. Easy to get to and free parking! Friendly and inviting staff! Expensive but the crabs were a Christmas gift to me, from me, for me!�

I love this place I come here all the time. When I order for crabs I expect 8 clause. If I'm done one or two I'm cool with it. When I get four out of eight I'm annoyed. Not the first time this has happened. When I said something to the manager about it after 45 minutes from the first time she's been told, she was Surly and did nothing. I am very unhappy

(U) Great service, staff and food. The hush puppies and rockfish bites were sensational. Had a half dozen colossal crabs, and some other menu items to check it all out. Love the no frills atmosphere, friendly folks, good music and great food. We will recommend this place and we'll be back.

Food was excellent. A little on the pricy side for crabs. They start at $35 a dozen for small size but were seasoned well and tasted excellent when we finally got them. The downside-service was very slow. It took 40 mins to get a dozen small crabs to the table.

When they actually have crabs, they are great! We called to verify crabs for a group of 15 for a memorial dinner and were told they had them and then showed up and they were all out. It’s the third time myself or friends have arrived and were told there were no crabs after verifying on the phone. Unfortunately, it’s a bit of a drive to the next crab location.

The food we had was good, seafood platters. However I had family that xame from out of town to eat crabs. I did called and verified they had crabs. They had crabs up until the time it took us to find seating. As soon as I got to 0the counter to order I was yold they have no more crabs. So we ordered seafood platters and crab legs. Soon as we are almost done we see someone seated after our group get a platter of crabs. So disappointed!

The drinks were GREAT! I had the best bartender and I wish I could remember her name. I do remember she had glittery eye shadow and she can make my drink any day! The food was just so-so. I didn't order crabs because they looked medium sized. I ordered fries, which I never received, hot wings, which I could tell were prepared earlier and reheated and steamed shrimp, which also was not freshly steamed. I wouldn't go back for the food. However, I would go back for the drinks (as long as I had the same bartender) and the atmosphere. My suggestion, eat elsewhere but find that bartender!

The crabs were good but it is all self serve. If I'm paying $65 for a dozen medium (small) crabs, I want to be served! Super casual out on the back porch. Lots of fun when you meet a group there.

I thought the happy hour specials were great .... Until � i am writing this review @ 3:30 am (post clean up) after vomiting my entire meal and drinks up! I had 3 $5 baskets (wings, shrimp, mussels) one or maybe all of those baskets did not agree with me? Somewhere between the preparation and the delivery to the table produced a horrible outcome. No more fat boys for me!

I always enjoy the food...the crabs,crab legs, shrimp, mussels, chicken wings, hush puppies, fries, coleslaw, burger, crab dip, etc. everything is always excellent. Even the drinks. The service however, usually leaves much to be desired. I mean if we're tipping for what is essentially self service, the least someone can do is bring enough paper to cover the whole table, empty the crab shells from the buckets and remember to bring the requested condiments.

Very disappointed in my most recent visit. The service totally sucked after I placed my order. My steamed shrimp were "luke warm", I asked for soft butter for my hush puppies instead of melted butter, was told that there wasn't any (found that difficult to believe) especially since I requested & received some during a previous visit. Then, to top it all off, they did not have any "nut crackers" for the Alaskan Snow Crab legs. Really? Wow, as I proceeded to return my food & request a refund, a kind young man "found" me a pair of "brand new/unopened" crackers. By this time, my entire meal was cold & I left extremely unhappy.

They messed up my wife’s order, so when she expressed her feelings to the manage. Instead of correcting the problem, my wife cancels the order and was asked if she wanted some hush puppies. Really!!

Where shall I start ..... We get there and all the tables were dirty. We had to ask 3 times to clean the a table for us. We started cleaning out own table before someone came over and cleaned it. Then my 4 year old daughter order chicken nuggets. I don't know what they gave her but it wasn't chicken nuggets. She wouldn't eat them so I had to order something else. When I went up to the young girl to give back the nuggets, the young girl was more interested in her phone. When she did look over at the food even she said "what is that?" I said its supposed to be chicken nuggets. I asked for my money back then the manager said "they look fine and we dont give refunds" I said they don't look fine and can you tell me what they are?" He couldn't even tell me what they were. I said "they are supposed to be nuggets. Do they look like nugget? Would you eat it?" The girl was shaking her head no. The manager said "we don't give refunds" so I flicked the food over to him and said "why don't you eat it" horrible place. Save your money for a place that actually wants to please customers

The place is cramped. My party was told they were out of crabs—it was only 6pm and someone right after us received crabs. They have sooo many flies and fruit flies—it definitely interrupted our meal. If it were larger, cleaner, and served better food for their prices—everything would be great.

Service was AWFUL! My husbands crab legs never came and we asked for a refund. Place was dirty, soda fountain was weak - too much water and not enough syrup,loud and obnoxious patrons, food came out at different times so none of us were able to eat together. Worst Saturday night dining experience we’ve had in a long time.... NEVER AGAIN!!!

1 star is generous for this visit (9/3/17) primarily driven by the manager on duty with his arrogant and dismissive attitude. A weekly visitor to this establishment - both the crabs and management's attitude was horrible on this visit. Every crab eater knows you will get a bad one here and there but your whole order should not be light, mushy and water logged. Will have to find another place for my weekly $50-100 that I spend on crabs - plenty in area.
