Food: Really great crab legs - both the Snow and King! Oysters on the half shell are the highlight here though - always fresh. I prefer something a little brinier, so the Chesapeake Oysters are my go to, but the Blue Point are a little more meaty. Service: The waiters/waitresses are always really friendly and helpful. Good service! Atmosphere: I get the theme, but I think the menu needs a little update. This place can have a lot more service than it gets with a few updates because the food is great!

The food was good my husband and I enjoyed our night out, the lemon cake was AMAZING minus the hair that I found under it, But it was sooo good I almost didnt say anything about it I ordered another piece at no cost and enjoyed every bit of it no hair. my waitress was great.

The sitting was very close together everytime the waiter passed by i had to move my seat. The food was not what i though it would be. I should have went to Red Lopster. Oh i could i forget the parking which there was only one valet and it took me about an hour to get my car.

I love this adorable litte place. Michael was an awesome server and extremely friendly. The food was delicious. The scallops are the way to go. Yum!! My friend and I stopped at the bar before we left for a quick cocktail. Danielle, the bartender was extremely knowledgeable and made a great margarita. We will def be back!!

King crab is always a good time, you can go in and hang out in front for really cheap eats. The best part by far is their Sunday all you can eat crab legs during the day. My favorite fresh seafood place in the city by far.

A divey, old-school place that really knows what they're doing with seafood. The decor will not impress anyone, but I like it. Nautical themed, and probably hasn't changed in the 30 years or so this place has been open. Service was fine. It's not a fine dining experience, but the food is outstanding, and that's why you come here. Prices were expensive, but reasonable. Crab costs money. They have many different crab options, from jumbo king crab legs to dungenness, snow crab, and I think soft shell too. The crab is served hot with drawn butter, just like it should be. Definitely sit on the back patio if it's open. Now that Glen's Diner no longer has Glen, I guess this is your spot for unpretentious, solid seafood. Yum.
