I had a great evening of good food and good music at 1921 Seafood. The boiled crabs were a delight....got the last dozen of the evening.

Not sure how to explain that the food was amazingly fresh and so very good. We enjoyed the meal and enjoyed talking with other diners while we were eating. Very fresh seafood and a wonderful waitress made out time at this restaurant memorable. Wish it was down the road from us, so that we could go back again and again.

Wow! If not for the cute and friendly waitress (Server#5) I would have rated them lower...Ordered the special "Seafood Gumbo" for dinner with 1/2 pound of boiled shrimp. The gumbo was likely left-over from lunch, a few mushy shrimp and veggies in a marginal roux over failry fresh rice. The boiled shrimp were gummy, chalky and fell apart when you... More

Noisy, loud, the seafood is really spicy. It tends to serve like it is still the old drive-in it was once.

Great place to have wide variety of fresh seafood. Only because Critters is a tad better in our opinion does this highly recommended restaurant only rate a 4

Nondescript locally popular restaurant. They have great servers and full fresh seafood menu including fresh- shucked oysters. The prices are right, the service staff is informative and helpful ("do you want me to help or show you how to crack the Dungeness crab?"). The bread pudding for dessert is sinful if you have room or even if you don't.

yes the seafood is very good and the inside looks like your boat shed. do not let the rustic look and feel give you pause, because the seafood is just like you would do it yourself. the outside is very rustic too, but do not be put off by the dock side look in the center of town.

Ordered gumbo on an early Friday night. They were out of potato salad. That is supposed to be standard for gumbo. Gumbo was served in a Styrofoam bowl with a plastic spoon. There is nothing Cajun about that. We wanted blue crabs and they were out. The server said they were too expensive, but they had Dungeness crab instead. Non... More

Love the atmosphere and great service. Our GPS could not find it and the hottest went outside and directed US to them, even standing on curb to flag US down. Food was good, not great, and portions are small. But it was a fun time for all.

We had a dozen oysters, crawfish, boiled shrimp, grilled and blackened red snapper. Everything was amazing! Big portions and tasted great. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Won't find crawfish cooked any better than that at a restaurant. You're missing out if you don't stop here.
