Found this place not far from the Hyatt in Cambridge, and we were disappointed by the crabs. Very hit and mess with the 18 we shared. Some were inedible (maybe 3). Some were OK. Some were great. It was $60 a dozen but this included a variety of sizes from teeny to one huge one. Many of the crabs had meat that was mushy (old?) rather than firm and glistening. We won't be back. Too bad because the ice cream place next door rocks.

Nice local eatery. Soft crabs were good and crispy. Crab cakes were also very good. Lump crabmeat and not much filler.
Recommend for an informal lunch.

Took the family here for an impromptu dinner. We sat outside near the bar. Food is priced decent. The menu is not huge so knowing what you want is easy to figure out. I got the Mahi Mahi. It had good flavor but was over cooked and dry. My wife got the crab cake sandwich was good and flavorful. The jumbo shrimp for an appetizer was awesome and the wings and fried pickle were good too.

The atmosphere is pretty much laid back and was just what we were looking for. The orange crush and the dark and stormy would be the recommended drinks to get, or you can choose beer if that's what you like.

After dinner I would suggest to go the Highland Creamery for desert.. They talk cash only.

Crabs were HUGE, heavy and sweet! Soft crab sandwiches are awesome. Staff is attentive and usually a breeze at the tiki bar

Very basic indoor/outdoor dining place. Extremely casual, on the water with a large outdoor patio with bar and tables and a large interior with bar, tables and pool table....a fun place.

Food is good...the crab cakes were excellent, soft shell crabs sautéed and fried were both great, and rock fish with crab imperial was a solid good!

Menu is limited and although more than bar snacks is not extensive...seems that what is in the menus is darn good. The place is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday's.

Right around the other side of the building is a killer home made ice creamery...the Scottish highland creamery...don't miss that!
