We had the fries with Crab soup/bacon on one side and Philly Cheese Steak/Wit on the other. They were a meal and extremely satisfying. I had a patty melt on a jalapeno bun with onion rings and jalapeno remoulade. It was cheesy, spicy goodness on a bun. Everyone in our group enjoyed their selections. The service was also on point....

Heard about this place on DDD and finally got a chance to check it out . The crab soup was excellent definitely a winner to start off with. I then had the crab cake melt. This was one of the best crab cakes I've had. The sandwich was stuffed thick with crab cake on buttery sandwich toast. A layer of... More

It was tough rating this place 3-stars (more like 3.5), but there were a few things that could use some improvement. I sampled a few things on the menu, like the Crab Melt (a Guy Fieri fave) and a 'make-your-own grilled cheese' with mac-n-cheese, pepper jack, fried pickles and buffalo tenders. First, the crab melt was pretty slammin', and I... More

I had the crab melt "Guy Fieri's Favorite", I kicked up to angry for some more spice and made it a Crab cake supreme (has more crab meat). Incredible sandwich and the extra surprise here is the desert case with chocolate cover bacon!

We've been here many times for lunch, both with old and new owners, and before and after the Triple-D visit. Servers are always pleasant, and though the food can take awhile to arrive, you won't feel neglected. I've settled into a 'regular' of grilled ham and cheese, and there are plenty of cheese to choose from to create different combinations.... More

This is a very casual little place on the way to the Parkway entrance. Excellent food every time I've been there. I always order the crab melt sandwich. The creamy crab soup is filling, but is worth it. if you like spicy food, you can order the "angry" version of most menu items. I'm always too full for dessert, but... More

I saw the trip advisor flag outside this restaurant and had to stop. What a find..... the best crab cake sandwich I have ever had. It's a very small restaurant, waitresses are so friendly and the food is good. Their fries are so different .... and they have a very special dipping sauce although you can use the old stand...

Wow, just wow! My wife & I love finding little out of the way restaurants and this place is an absolute freaking treasure. Sure their menu looks like a heart attack waiting to happen---but every dish is so worth the caloric and fat intake! We started with the Cream of Crab Soup and the Crab Fries.

We are not the biggest company and we like it that way. Our family of employees in South Jersey all show up each morning to achieve the same goal: provide our guests with the utmost respectable service, while you enjoy fun local farm fresh to table items our Chef Dominic Stigliano creates in the kitchen . We are not "fine-dining" and we are not "casual dining." We like to consider ourselves "fun casual dining." We want every guest to dine in and have fun creating their own dishes. Come in and meet our family or enjoy eating in the comfort of your own home as we also deliver and do take out!
