Despite being super busy on Sundays this place delivers on the quality of the crabs and service. The bar area is also nice and a good to kill time while waiting for a table.

Way too much filler in the crab cake. Our waitress could have cared less to be there doing her job. "NO" substitutes ... don't even ask. Their "Fries" are thick potato strips/wedges and the batter for their fried oysters needs seasoning. A disappointment.
