  • Can't go wrong with king crab and shrimp in their signature blend sauce -- spicy! Sit on the side of the bar closest to window for full menu if there's a wait.
  • Crab cake was delicious ....chicken salad ...3 chicken fingers on a bed of lettuce smh not a ceasar caesar salad
  • The king crab legs with mild garlic butter sauce was really good. The sauce is absolutely amazing finger licking good.
  • Everything is delicious! The portions are huge, so be careful not to over order. Also, it's cash only.
  • Love how you use your hands for everything. Its a mess! But its delicious
  • Food good. Price alright. Cash only. Great for groups. Seafood was salty last time though
  • Crawfish with the special sauce!
  • crawfishmargaritasglovesa bibperfect
  • Drinks on point. Had the fried wings and corn. Tasty with food portions....
  • For first timers, I recommend 1 lb of shrimp and 1 lb crawfish.
  • This restaurant is better than the one on Chrystie Street in terms of seating; it's less cramped. Recommended: if you don't care for potatoes and corn; try two one-pound shrimp with different sauces.
  • The spicy isn't that spicy but it's real good - also the king crab legs have TONS Of meat. Start with the BBQ shrimp!
  • The food and the experience are surely worth the wait! Love both the crawfish and the king crab legs!
  • Skip the crawfish but go for the crab boil or lobster roll
  • Dungeness crab w cajun sauce
  • Go there !!! We ordered shrimps and clams in a butter garlic sauce. Both were really tasty and fresh but especially the clams - and its easier to eat ;)
  • Everything ! Love me some boil seafood
  • So yum! But bring cash!
  • The boil sauce is garlic heaven... for only you tho
  • Go if you're prepared to get down and dirty with your food (think bib and rubber gloves). Definitely some standouts (shrimp and catfish specifically). Good crawfish if you want to put in the work!
