1st time there, and it certainly won't be the last. <br /> The cajun crayfish appetizer was delicious, and the snow crab legs were some of the best we have ever had. <br /> Everyone was friendly, we had great service, and we loved the comfortable atmosphere.<br /> <br />

Just had dinner for our 29th anniversary. We were seated in a timely manner. With in 20 mins. of being seated we were being served our meals. We both had the crab cake dinner. Tony had the french fries and I got the baked potato. French fries weren't crispy BUT they were cooked all the way through and tasted good. The waitress kept checking on us to make sure of our needs. Talk about the best crab cakes in the world! YUMMMM!!! We will be back!<br /> ~Thanks to the entire staff for having a wonderful place.

The Tuesday night steak night was much better when you offered a salad, baked potato and garlic bread. The vegetables now are mushy and it is just not as good a combination.

My first time here ! Everything was amazing . I had the crab bisque and I'll say this I haven't had so good since st. Augustine . Amazing !! Atmosphere was wonderful, my glass was never empty and the lump crab meat dinner was so filling I couldn't finish. Cole slaw has to be the best around.

Just came home from dinner. We were seated right away upstairs in new section with no heat and no back on the seat. Ordered 2 doz clams which were not even washed. They were so sandy disgusting and four never opened. My husbands soup was good. Then our meal the fish was so dry could not eat it and steak was to be med well. It came out burnt and not a drop of juice in it. Baked potatoe was hard and the cole slaw was very dry and so fine it had no taste. Very disappointed as have been there several times b4 and was very pleased but will not go back. Waitress never came to see if we needed a refill on drinks and took 15 min. To bring our check. I apologize to the people I recommended this place to previously.

Best place around! If you've ever been a waitress/waiter you know the stress of being busy and the never stop running!! Kudos to them, and the one manager they have for the entire bar and restaurant! The food is incredible and portions are plenty, I have never had a bad experience here and I recommend this restaurant all the time! And if you haven't tried the new boat addition, I recommend dining in the Miss Arlene next time you visit, it's by far the coolest around.

Was there on wed night. Waitress was so bad she could not answer any of our questions. She would yell to another waitress to answer our questions. I asked if the stone crabs were fresh and was told yes fresh never frozen. They came out hot supposed to be served chilled and we were served nothing to open them with. When the waitress finally came back she told me it is crab night and I would have to wait until some of the openers were brought back to kitchen. Finally got to open one it literally smell like bleach I do mean like I had a cup of bleach set in front of me. How can a seafood kitchen not know the crabs were bad. This was totally so disgusting. We cancelled our entrees and rAn for the door<br /> to

We got there at 7 0 clock . We had to wait 15 minutes for our table . Another 10 minutes to place our order . Another 20 minutes to get our appetizers . REALLY ! Another 10 minutes for our meal . But the food was really good ! And they didn't skimp on the fish , I got a HUGE portion ! We were done eating at 8:15 . We had to wait another 15 for the waitress to ask us if we wanted a carton , to take our leftovers home . ANOTHER 15 minute wait for that ! I was pleased with the food , but not the service !

HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE, WORST PLACE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This place is a JOKE! We were told to check this place out but go early because it gets really crowded. We were "lucky" and were seated without a wait at 5:20PM, our appetizers took 90 minutes to come out, peel and eat shrimp - 90 minutes seroiusly??? Food took another hour, no bread basket no salad , no nothing!!! No food at all! Finally our food comes we ask to see the manager. This was the final straw, this young girl"manager" could care less, actually said "well on most fridays, you will wait at least an hour just to be seated" Really? What was the hold up on our food? How about comping us something - not a thing, smiled and laughed like oh well to bad!!<br /> DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY FOR THE WORST SERVICE AND FOOD EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love your food and service, busy place, that is when you can tell the food is delicious... Keep going back for more...Need to get the rock shrimp back though...<br />

A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE from beginning to end. Long wait with empty tables visible... Completely understaffed... (Shame on the management...) A loud and smokey bar... Continuously slamming bathroom doors... And God-awful food... Clams were really chewy (5 never opened... Ugh!) and rock shrimp that were so tough they tasted like little rubber balls. The cake-taker was NO soap in a busy bathroom. Totally disgusting. We arrived at 5:30 and didn't ESCAPE until well after 8. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
