    Very pleasant experience. We ate outside on a beautiful day. We both had cream of crab soup and crab cake sandwiches. The soup didn’t have a lot of crab meat, but was very tasty. The crab cakes were big and full of good lump meat. The crab cake could have been hotter (especially in the middle), but I like my food hot. We both had one drink (1 beer, 1 wine) and the bill was about $70.

    I was thoroughly disappointed. Even with a reservation, I waited for the hostess to even acknowledge I had arrived for about 10 minutes. When she arrived she checked to see if a table was available outdoors, which contributed to a wait of another 10 minutes. Once seated, we were never addressed by the waitresses. Sitting for another 20 minutes, I asked the waitress who was responsible for our table. While she was polite, she said she'd find out, but she never returned nor did anyone ever tend to our table. I find it difficult to believe that we were seated next to patrons who were tended to as they were about to leave, and the table on the opposite side that arrived 10 minutes after us, and they were tended to. I believe I know why this occurred, but I'll leave that speculation as just that. I hope no one else has this experience, especially on Father's Day. Left after this never to return or recommend to anyone. Unable to leave a private message, so I hope management retrieves this to make corrections.

    Food was good. Cream of crab soup was a bit salty. Five of us got the soup but two could not finish more than half. I wanted to order crabs but was told they didn’t have any for sale. Others were eating crabs including people that came much later than us. It was the main reason I picked the restaurant as they are showcased on the website. It was a Fathers Day disappointment to not have crabs or an explanation like they needed to be reserved a head of time. I would come back for the normal menu and location but will look elsewhere when ready to eat some crabs.

    Very disappointing experience on Father's Day. We were specifically looking to have crabs and made a reservation here because other restaurants that serve steamed crabs were not taking reservations. I am from out of town and this was my first time at this restaurant. The listing on open table did not in anyway indicate that anything special was happening at this restaurant for Father's day. However, when we arrived, the waitress told us there was a reduced menu, no substitutions allowed, and crabs were only available to groups that have called ahead to pre-reserve them. We had no way to know this and so we couldn't have crabs. I have made OpenTable reservations for other holidays and there is always a bright red notice if there is a reduced menu or you need to call to reserve a specific menu item. We stayed, because we were hungry, and the food we had was okay. But still really disappointing.
