People....please know the name of the restaurant you're reviewing! And put your review under the correct name. Kaufman's was sold and rebranded over a year ago as J.King's. Give the new owners and managers credit (or not) for their work. And don't confuse others. Please!

Under-seasoned steamed crabs, poor timing on food service, some were eating,some were waiting, no forks served with salad or sandwiches, no towels in restroom. Won't recommend, nor return. 18% service on less than average service.
