“Fresh Seafood Cooked to Order”

Reviewed 22 August 2016

My husband saw an ad for John's and was in the mood for crabs. We ordered half a bushel of cleaned crabs ( could have ordered them un-cleaned for a few dollars less) via phone then went to pick them up. Got #2 crabs cleaned with old bay for $85. The crabs were delish. Could have used a little more old bay. Easy to miss this little store by an empty strip mall. They have a good variety of seafood at reasonable prices. Will go again.

My dad saw that there was a fish place near by and he wanted dried clams. So we decided to go and the food was amazing. He got the fried clams, my Grandpop got fried shrimp and I got the fried oysters. Soooo good. The staff in there was awesome and the food was very fresh.

I almost missed this place. It is located next to a vacant former shopping center.
Once you are inside, if you love seafood as much as I do, you feel totally at home. They have fresh seafood in glass showcase, and the price is very reasonable.
I tried a fried flounder sandwich. They had a grilled fresh catch, but I did not have time to wait for 20 minutes (otherwise, I would have had that instead). At $ 5.99, my sandwich had 3 generous portions of flounder between two slices of ordinal bread (not buns or anything). It tasted like heaven with tartar or cocktail sauce (they gave me both).
Too bad I don't live around here. I would come here for the family platters. You won't be disappointed here.
