I’m so glad we found this little place in fog and rain last weekend! We ordered the combo with blue crab, shrimp, corn and potatoes. Since we are counting calories we subbed extra shrimp for the sausage. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was...More

Good food, nothing fancy, simply made but tasty. We had blue crab, oysters and shrimp all boiled, of course.

Lots of fun sharing a boiling pot of fresh seafood with our kids & grandkids. Watching a very skilled server ‘shuck’ oysters was a learning experience for us. The service was awesome, the atmosphere was, well, an experience. This place is definitely recovering from Hurricane...More

First time to visit after Harvey. But something was missing. Their corn is usually to die for, not so much this time. It was very watery and not as much spice. Potatoes were cold and no spice. And a couple of the shrimp were on...More

I have gone to this restaurant at least once or twice a year for 25 years and I love this place. We went for our summer visit last night and the food was very under cooked. Potatoes were raw and the shrimp had no flavor...More

The good was good but what needs improvement is their ventilation sistem. No windows short ceilings makes for a very claustrophobic time. It smelled like a meat market, not appetizing at all, had to chug a few beers before I got used to the smell....More

We sat outside after driving in AC all day, ordered the mix for two. It was good. Didn't realize the food would be brought out in a bucket and dumped onto the fresh paper on our table. There was so much that the presentation didn't...More

Big sign as we entered said NO Crawfish. Hmmm, should have just left then. We ordered the normal stuff added a extra pound of king fish & shrimp. Ordered a couple of beers - it cost $125 including tip for three people. All three of...More

Yes. They bring you shrimps whole, like nature made them, and they taste delicious. You can definitely taste the difference between fresh caught whole shripms and pre-decapitated, pre-shelled, pre-processed, and pre-frozen... More
