Visited here in July with about 20 co-workers. The menu is wonderful and they offer a lot of boiled seafood which many other restaurants do not. They have a great appetizer selection and the calamari and stuffed jalapenos were great. They also have some of the largest and best boiled shrimp I have ever eaten. The grilled oysters were good but not quite on the level as Acme or Dragos. Everyone enjoyed their meal very much and the server was on his game very much considering how large our group was. The only negative comment is that they did not offer drawn butter for my crabs. This place is well worth the visit.

Boiled crabs and shrimp, onion rings, seafood gumbo and fried fish, I tried it all and it was really really good. But above all were the crabs, that was really quite an experience!

Prices charged are relatively higher than normal for this area. Food was bismal, asked for shrimp and crawfish dish with pasta and dish is all pasta, 2 small shrimp and 3 minute crawfish. When confronting server I'm told that shrimp is very expensive. Not to the point of $27 for this plate. Bad attitude from general manager/server that said there is nothing she can do, even when owners present to pass on complaint. Not first time here, but will be last time. If this place cares so little about it's customers, it's going downhill fast. You don't argue with a loyal customer when he's pointing out something is not up to par. They should have said pasta dish with shrimp and crawfish taste, then it wouldn't be deceptive. If you are trying to sell a dish and specify shrimp and crawfish dish, I want to see what you advertise. I don't believe this is a place our family will choose to support, not with that attitude. Need to train their people on what's good customer service.

They had friendly service and the food was pretty good. We were there on a Wednesday and it was still packed. It was a larger local crowd than tourists.
