Different types of crab on the menu.. even family style option. They were super easy to crack open. Even for our 9 year olds. No fishy smell. You could tell they were about the freshest you are going to get. I ordered the snow crab legs and blackened shrimp. It was just enough to walk out and not feel gross but kept me full the rest of the day. Hubby got the bairdi crabs which we had never heard of. Huge sweet and amazing! People were coming in off the beach in their swimsuits ordering a cocktail from the bar so the vibe of the atmosphere is very relaxed and low key. Loved it. We had a party of 9 with 5 children and were treated with such respect and good service. Would’ve loved to have seen some Lobster on menu as well. But overall this was wonderful.

We had great food, in the outdoors part overlooking the gulf shore. The waiters were very nice and friendly. The seafood was fresh and wonderful. Also had very good variety. We did not have any meat, but it was available on the menu.

The view is great. The food was good but nothing extraordinary about steamed seafood. The staff was friendly, but the view was great. A nice place to enjoy a drink and watch the beach.

We spent a bunch of money on average at best food-and waited a long time to do that. The tables were mostly empty-had it been packed I would be much more understanding. Disappointed. A good view and a nice waitress were the only positives.
