Stopped here to eat based on a google search of what was on our way home from Disney back to the Tampa area. It was located right off I-4. Crab cakes, fried shrimp, and scallops were all good. Corn fritters were dynamite! Don't skip those. We will stop here again.

Been coming here for years and never left disappointed. Service always good. Best cleaned, prepped and prepared crab anywhere. The crab shala (Friday and Saturday only) is excellent. My mouth is watering...gotta go!

You have got to try this place. It is reasonably priced, and although it isn't much to look at, it has some great food. Do not leave without trying the deviled crab. It's amazing.

I ordered the garlic crab special. I was very impressed. There are a lot of seafood items to choose from on the menu I can't wait to get back and try the softshell crab sandwich. The restaurant itself is small, and will fill up pretty quick. But the service is spot on.

Service was great but it seemed like everything on the menu was fried. Nothing stood out as different or must be tried.

Lord have mercy if you want some lip smacking delights without a crowd go here. Our best small town secret by far doing it again. This week for Christmas. Friendly clean and highest quality seafood anywhere. Don't miss this place by the railroad museum in downtown Plant City and desert is great. Yummy Yum Yum !

We had the soft shell crab and it tasted old. The crab cakes were a little weird. They were wet inside and had a strange flavor. They were not my favorite. The hostess was friendly.

Excellent Deviled Crab. About $6 each, but better than anywhere here in Plant City. Not much in looks with tacky t-shirts "we got crabs at Linda's" However the food made up for it. My husband loves them. We will get to go most often.
