We went there hoping for a seafood dinner but it isn't open anymore and has a realtor for sale sign on it. We were pretty disappointed because it is hard to find a good seafood restaurant.

Among the worst dining experiences I've ever had. Terrible service, disgusting over priced food. My husband & I went for lunch, spent over $30 & left hungry.

Dont miss it!. Hidden up behind the movie theater this little crab shack is a must stop! Grab your own paper and utensils and have at it. The crabs were amazing!

The crab cakes were average at best, the beer selection was below average and the service was mediocre. What really hurt was that, considering how little food they provide, it was not cheap. There are other places at the lake with better crab cakes.

The owners were there when we stopped in, they were very friendly and the food was fantastic. We got fresh steamed crabs which they have brought in daily. We also had the crab hush puppies which were awesome!
