I've written about this place before with rave reviews. Why? They have good food and never a bad experience. Good value, excellent service.
Well, for Father's Day, we went there. although the fresh crabs were small, we ordered from the menu. It seems there was is a change of ownership. Menu was different but from what I can see they kept the reputation as it was when I visited them.
I started with oysters on the half shell and the majority was freshly shucked but there might have been one or two pre shucked before. With oysters you can tell. No way to hide this. We did have dinner at around 7 PM, so its understandable. My daughter had clams casino and cream of corn soup. The soup was a little or a lot starchy. You can taste it but the main entrée I had the soft shell crab stuffed with crab imperial. The soft shell was fresh, not frozen. and the crab imperial was made with JUMBO lump crabmeat.. It was excellent and I don't use that term on a regular basis. First impression is important. My daughter had the Surf and Turf and the steak was perfect and the lobster was delicious. My wife had the crab cake and it was both delicious and tasty.
Again, on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the best, I rate this place a 4 1/2 because the cream of crab was kind of starchy flavor.
