My best friend and I went for lunch. The place was almost empty. There was music playing, rather loudly, but not bad enough that we couldn't talk. Our waitress wasn't interested at all, she seemed bored and mad to be there. She never smiled once. When my friend asked for cocktail sauce to use with her shrimp scampi, the waitress... More

Fun little place to go reminds me of being near the beach. It is definitely a family place. Lots of noise.

Was looking for an oyster place. I ordered the dozen for 15 dollars. They open them for you and serve with the requested condiments. Staff was super friendly. The place is clean, family friendly dining area and a nice bar for the sports watchers. If you do not smoke, do not eat outside, all the smokers hang out there.

I have been going to Awful Arthur's for many years. A little over a year ago they closed and eventually re-opened under new owners. Since then I have gone several times and always get the same thing, their Pursors Platter. They have 2 sizes, a small for $18 or large for $31. It's just steamed shrimp and crab legs. The... More

While the food is not too bad here and there are quite a few options, it is extremely costly. A dinner for two without appetizers or drinks ran $50. Ouch this hurts the wallet.

Great place in a comfortable setting. All we ate was the crablegs, which were cooked perfect and very clean and good color. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Love this place

Enjoyed the appetizers both times we went, but the fish entrees were dull. I'll go again for drinks and appetizers, but not for dinner.

My favorite thing to do is sit on the deck with my friends, eating their bacon wrapped shrimp (SO good!), laughing and talking! The tables inside are great, too, for a quieter experience. Great staff, wonderful food! Give it a try, you won't be sorry!

To be fair, we visited this in the middle of the afternoon on a cloudy summer Saturday. We would have eaten outside on the deck (even though the few was of a parking lot) but they allow people to smoke out there. They had a great special on crab legs and my partner had the swordfish even though we were... More
