We eat here regularly and always enjoy the various specials. Our favorites are the all you can eat shrimp and the fried crab claws. It’s a great place, especially if you are traveling with teenagers.

Casual place with great fried seafood. Not the place to go if you don’t like fried food, but if you do, stop here for a meal. The stuffed crab is great and you can add one to any meal. Never had a bad meal and...More
