OMG! I have never before or never since consumed so much food in one sitting! Stopping just wasn't an option! MONSTER crab legs, delivered to your table. (no steam table lines) At some places it seems like you get very little crab considering the effort it takes to crack them. Not here! The meat coming out of these crab legs... More

First night on vacation we stopped in for dinner at dirty dicks. We got our food which was bearly warm. We waited a good five minutes to flag down our server to give us silver ware. Luke warm food, which tasted gross for a 26 dollar meal is not cool. Wouldn't go back even if you paid me.

We loved it the last time we were in PCB. This time the menu has changed and I couldn't find anything I really wanted. The spiced shrimp is great if you like seafood. I had Chicken Parm...

I took my daughter there for a seafood experience. She was able to taste foods she had never eaten before. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun and inviting.

Service poor. Prices high for quality of food. Cold and average. Staff made you feel like they were doing you a favor by being in business. Will never go back. To many other wonderful places to eat in PCB

The seafood was great. Don't go to a seafood place and order steak, it was over cooked, but the seafood was excellent. Had a big platter with snow crab, shrimp, two types, and jumbo crab claws. Everything was really good with the shrimp being the standout. Also ordered blue crabs which were also perfect. Kinda pricey but it not like... More

We first walked in we had a party of 6, for adults 2 children under 10. We were told the wait would be approximately 45 minutes. Not bad. I would say average. However, while... More

We visited Dirty Dick's again this year on our trip to the beach 4th of July week. We make an effort to go there every time we are there. They have the best crabs bar none. The food is always great but several times the service hasn't been the best. Last three times we visited, after giving our names we... More

Bought the trinity which was $65 but fed 2 adults and 2 children. Even on a busy night we were setted instantly. This service was ok. Food was very good and worth the money especially considering the portions were huge. This place deserves a higher rating than it has. Pick this place over the other talked about places (Captain Jacks,... More

Good food and decor. It really looks like a Joe's Crab Shack which we also like to eat at. In any case we saw the place stopped and it was worth it. Large amounts of food so be ready to eat!

We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
