Visited with a large group and they were more than accommodating. The staff was genuinely attentive and the service was great. I had their famous crab cake. It was everything a crab cake should be. Simply delicious. Love this place.

The food was great as usual, with the crab cakes being our favorite. It wasn't too busy and the service was great as well. Will return next time we're in town.

I don't believe they take reservations. Just get your name on the list and enjoy shopping at the shops at the pier while you wait!
