Great crabs! Perfectly steamed and seasoned and sizes accurately described. Different sizes available, reasonably (and seemingly consistently) priced for the season and size. Good hushpuppies too!

I went here when the place first opened and I was impressed. It is now two- three years later (approximately) and I think this place has become a tourist trap. Unless your thing is crabs and beer I wouldn't come here. There are so many...More
