If you like crab boils, this is the one and only spot in the east valley. Also their fish and chips are excellent.

Tried the snow crab legs with trifecta sauce and it was just OK. The scissors which I initially got were not properly cleaned so I asked for the scissors to be replaced. Ample parking as they are in a strip mall.

Unique approach to pedling seafood, sold by the pound, delivered in appropriate container, eaten with fingers or what ever works. Similar to a traditional east coast sea food feed, cook it and pour it on your paper covered table. Service has ranged from excellent to...More

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
