this place used to be ok, not great but not bad . . . now it's pretty much terrible

my wife and I ordered a drink and a 1/2 dozen oysters for an appetizer and also ordered our meals at the same time. the drinks and oysters came out in a reasonable time, unfortunately our meals never arrived and after about 45 minutes we got our check and left. what a joke, it wasn't even crowded and now i know why. my guess is that the only regulars this place has are the locals that only drink the beer and hang at the bar

never again

The place is only good if your getting all you can eat crab legs. Everything else is terrible. Even the beer is skunked. And whatever you do, DON'T drink the iced tea. — Anonymous Reviewer

Just not happy with the service! I am sorry, my wife and I work in the restaurent business, and the service was terrable. It took 15 min to get drinks, 35 min to get kids food which came out cold! and another 10 min to get our crab legs, did not know if you do not ask for Hush Puppy you will not get them! poor, poor, poor. Do not think it is worth the wait! — Anonymous Reviewer

We went on a Saturday night when no tables were available. We moved from the bar to a table then another behind our friends who were already eating. It took an hour to get our appetizers and longer to get our first plate of all you can eat crab. We had 3 plates between 2 all you can eat dinners. Each was frozen on the cluster. Our hushpuppies and fries were cold. We complained and asked for our bill. $100 for 2 people was ridiculous. We talked to the owner. He said we got bad food because we changed table too many times. He threatened to charge us more then told us never to come back.

This is not how you run a restaurant. You fix the problem with your customers, then you jump in to help your servers and kitchen.

On Saturday The Merge was playing to a packed house. They called last call at 11:00. I have never seen so many mad people. We swore never to go back and we did. Never again!

After reading the reviews and checking out the menu I was looking forward to trying this place out. Honestly, I can say for certain I will not be back.

It took over an hour and fifteen minutes for my fried platter and my wife's chicken dinner to come out. Oh, and the app I ordered didn't come out until the they brought the dinners. When the dinners finally got to our table my fried platter didn't even have the sides. Yes, slaw and hush puppies are supposed to come with the it. As far as the food, my dinner was soggy as though it were sitting under a heat lamp for some time waiting on who knows what. My wife's chicken (she's not a seafood person) was average at best.

I've worked in restaurants before and understand what can happen when you're short staffed. I get it. But, that's when management needs step up their game instead of standing around which I saw a lot of.

Yeah, they may have been having an off night. I'm sure there are many folks who are regulars, usually get good service and love the place. That's great. But as a first impression for me, an off night with below average food/service on a $70 bill tells me I won't be back.

Pleasantly surprised! Food was great! I do agree it's a bit pricey, but at the same time any place that offers the same thing is going to be about the same price. — Anonymous Reviewer

The food is pretty good. The cigarette smoke however is really, really, really bad. Have stopped by just for take out once and when I got home my wife thought I'd been at a bar all night long. Wish they'd go non-smoking and then they'd I'd have a seafood place in town to go to. — Anonymous Reviewer

Best Crab legs and Steamed shrimp in town. It is pricey, but they are the best crab legs that I have had anywhere, and that is including all the east coast beaches. You gotta go for the All-u-can-eat at least once to try. — Anonymous Reviewer
