We placed a large takeout order ($150) for 9 people to celebrate my birthday. It was bad. Very very bad. Easily the worst seafood I've ever had. I was so excited for the deviled crab cakes (we got 8 at $3 a piece). I thought they were fish patties or something. The inside was like some kind of mushed pate... More

Depending who's cooking your meal can be either delicious or not. If you like a dive bar atmosphere and you are adventurous, try is out. Cheesestakes can be awesome keeping in mind the previous caveat.

Best crab legs around! Make sure you go on Saturday night for the leg special for 2. You get 3 lbs of crab legs, pitcher of beer and a basket of fries.

My husband and I went to Lews for the first time. I decided on the Monk fish which was good but could have used a little more seasoning. My husband had the blue crab special which was absolutely wonderful. The crabs were seasoned just perfect and the old bay fries were also good. Everything I saw come out of the... More
