We ate their for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, we should have known that something was wrong because there was only two cars in the parking lot. I went for the all you can eat special that was advertised on a huge banner outside. It was listed at 14.99. When I asked our server about it he insisted us it... More

I had this fortune of having lunch at this restaurant today. January 15, 2017. Food was better than the service. The service is hard to believe, it was OUR server not all the servers, no one could be this out of touch. Should have gotten a clue when my friend asked for all you can eat lunch advertised for $14.00.... More

Whenever I feel like eating crab legs I go to Dirty Dicks. It may be a bit pricy but WELL WORTH IT! Not only can you get the all you can eat crabs but you are also entitled to All you can eat shrimp or scallops. Take a break from cracking the crab legs and have some shrimp or scallops.... More

This is a family food restaurant. That doesn't mean home cooking, although some things are prepared from scratch on the site. Rather it means very large portions designed to fill up the hungriest stomach at a reassonable price.

From soups, salads, dressings, sauces, hush puppies, & even our homemade tartar sauce is fresh made. We pride ourselves on this! I am so sorry that you thought we didn't. Our Handmade buns are probably the best hamburger buns in any restaurant. We like to give good size portions so that our customers can take it home for later. Thanks... More

Had been here before and it was less than perfect but this time it was spot on. Our server Jason was very patient and was very knowledgeable about the menu and answered our questions. The food was very flavorful and the portions were much bigger than previous. We had the lemon butter shrimp, Louisiana scampi, jumbo shrimp skewers, crab dip,... More

Visit was ok because there was not a wait nor crowded when we arrived. The AYCE fish was swai white fish that is supposedly not good to eat. The initial shrimp was larger than refills which were popcorn like. Our waitresses was very nice but service was slow. Other than this I would add another star.

Thank you for your review! Our Swai do not come from China, therefore they are not the pond raised swai that you refer to. They come from a reliable source in the USA. On that day you received our jumbo shrimp on your first order which is not the norm. What you received on your reorder was a 50/60 count... More

We were here in November and they were not busy. The place is a bit loud, loud music, and if you like that while you eat you will like this place. The food was good...loved the steamed crab legs with corn, etc.

Thank you for your review. Our guests are encouraged to let a server know if they need anything, even music that needs to be adjusted. We are having a meeting tomorrow and will set a volume that will remain at a certain level that I think will be acceptable. More

Description
We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
