Very good and quick! We got the fried shrimp and crab cake sandwich. This is a more fried-seafood type place. They texted us when our order was ready and then we took it back to the hotel which was very convenient!

Outside seating only, at picnic tables in the sand, which is exactly what I want when I want to demolish some hard crabs. We arrived literally as they opened, ordered, got a text alert when our food was ready, and we dug into some of the best picked, most perfectly seasoned crabs we've ever had. We also enjoyed the lightly battered clam strips and the butterflied shrimp, but the crabs are the stars. Staff was cheerful, the price was right, and I wish I could go back there today, but I live five hours away.

We’ve been here twice over the past year and haven’t been disappointed. The food is always fresh. There is no inside seating and there are two portable bathrooms in the back which are very clean. As for the food, we loved everything we ate - maybe, not so much the cream of crab soup. However, we will come back. The staff and service are friendly.
