This is a wonderfully funky place to eat seafood. We ordered the bag of sea food which included crab legs, clam, shrimp and more. You get plastic gloves, a huge bib and a tray in which you put the shells.

This place is incredible! Amazing food. Great atmosphere. If I lived in San Diego, I would be here all the time. Loved the fried oysters- like a delicious oyster wrapped in a hush puppy. The food is unique and classic at the same time with...More
