We ordered takeout. The crab cakes were not good. They had lots of filler and not much lump meat. I will not order them again.

On July 4th, the special for 1/2 bushel was great for us. Plenty of meat. Ordering was easy. Even though when I called with a question they were slammed, the person answering was polite and took care of my order. Ready on time!
