This place is the best seafood restaurant I've visited on the island. Great friendly service. The chargrilled oysters are delicious. The broiled scallops were amazing. I'll definitely go back there again. They've also got live gators there and a baby you can touch.

Great place to eat! Food is always good and service is excellent, especially if your wait person is David. We try to get there when we are in the area. Try the Blackened Grouper - it's wonderful.

Are you Dungeness crabs live and cooked to order and do you clean and crack them before service?

Just curious, what is "Old Bay"? I love crab legs but just like them heated and dipped in butter.
