I hate to post a BAD review, but I went here on Monday 7/26 because of good reviews on this board and it was NOT that good. We went there hoping for steamed crabs and soft shell crab but our waiter told us they were out of all crab except garlic crab, their specialty, and alaskan king crab for "only" $35.

Well, four of us got the king crab, I tried the garlic crabs, and someone got the whole broiled pompano. The pompano (which sure looked like a snapper, NOT a pompano, to me) was very good but the crabs were not. Our shrimp appetizer, steamed in Old Bay and served in the shell, were medium sized and very good. But boy, the crabs were a gigantic disappointment.

We were there to celebrate my son's return from Iraq and although they had a large sign that said "We support our troops" on the wall, they wouldn't consider a military discount. Just another strike against them...

I know we should have complained, but my nephew, a local resident, said he complained about a week before and no one seemed overly interested. Just wanted to make sure no one else on this board goes through what we did at that price - our bill for six people was almost $300.
