A little hole in the wall restaurant that serves great crab and other shellfish. The medium spice on the snow crab was plenty spicy for me. My son got the spiciest crab which he loved (hot enough to make him perspire) with shrimp and quail eggs on the side. We'll definitely go back.

Food was fine and expendive, very expensive drinks which was average. Would recommend to friends who would go all out with their budget to have a descent dinner. Nothing outstanding

The food was okay. But the crab is very salty. We even informed the staff n they said they r aware of it. Strange! So why don’t they improve the taste? The price is not cheap. We didn’t get what we paid for.

Got my order and my husbands order wrong. I ordered potatoes, but got corn... he ordered cajun fries but got regular. I would recommend the servers write down your order, and not try to remember.
Happy hour was nice.

Food was good overall except for the appetizer which was cold. The facade of the restaurant needs some updating.

Place is a little small. Food was really good! Cajun was a bit too spicy but thats my opinion. They were playing good music. Will go back again but trying different flavor :)

The food was fresh and good. But the spice I got was too spicy for me! I would go back to try another and light spice next time! Service was good. Appetizers were delicious - love the chicken wings!

All the food was fresh and amazing, not too salty, not too fishy. I recommend the catfish basket, sweet potato fries and fried calamari. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

The food was good. I got the crab legs and shrimp combo (they charged extra to remove the head). My only complaint would be the drinks, including the non-alcoholic, that were overpriced for the unreasonably small size.

Gloves provided was way too big for my hands which made eating difficult, as they kept falling off. Other than that everything else was good.
