I wish this place was closer to home. Words can't describe the experience. The food was awesome. You have to visit this place at least once. My only issue is that they didn't have blue crab. Be careful when ordering your seasonings. Stick with the...More

Don’t bother. Go to Hot’n’juicy instead. I have been here almost ten times. This WAS one of my regular and favorite places, but I started going to the Phx location after two meals of bad sauce here. In about 8 visits to the Phx location,...More

The food was great and the service was quick. They had a lot of options to choose from to customize your own meal. I chose mussels, garlic sauce, mild heat, and added veggies, potatoes, corn and sausage to share.

We were visiting Arizona and taken here by a local. It did not disappoint! Seafood by the pound?! Filled a bag with 2 pounds of seafood and loved every bite. This is will be my "must go" every time I visit Mesa.
