    Chicken Tacos look good; lack flavor. Crab Bisque lacks crab. Mahi Tacos; not seasoned. Food came out at different times. Meh to the whole experience.

    Their oysters are fresh and delicious. I recommend the Maryland crab cake. It's ALL meat and they serve you two cakes. The salad that comes along with it is delicious as well.

    Worst crab mac and cheese in Baltimore.... It should be illegal to call this "crab" Mac and cheese! It's mac and cheese. There is no crab!

    Great service, the lobster ravioli were fabulous. Crab cakes are also pretty good. The bisque, not so much. Pretty good experience.

    The large crabs had the weight and size of medium crabs. The chicken quesadilla was nothing to rave aboit and the ceabs had more flavor to me than the crab flat bread. Great service.

    Service is good. Fish tacos are meh. Chicken tacos are fantastic. Nachos are not your average bar nachos, they're better. We keep coming back, so it can't be that bad!

    Service was awful. The small crabs were tiny. She forgot our salad. Our crab dip came out after our crabs. The crab bisque tasted like wallpaper paste. Never again.

    Despite probably being of the frozen variety, the black bean burger with mango sauce is delicious. Skip the nachos- the first ingredient appeared to be salt.
