    We had the Blue Crab and a kids meal. Awesome food and service. This was our first experience enjoying Maryland blue crab and it was awesome. Our server took a lot of time to teach us the "How to"!

    Omg had the crab cakes & rockfish on what happened to be most perfect day date ever. Those fish end up being the most tender perfect items I'd encountered in some time.

    very crowded, line even to park. hostess, unable to tell us how long the wait would be, she was also very dismissive. We will not be returning. Shame, because the food is delicious

    The steamed clams are excellent. Would recommend them to anyone accustomed to New England lobster shacks.

    Holy crabs. All you need to do is order any type of seafood to have a fantastic meal. Go look at the sail boats and live crabs on the back deck.

    Excellent. Arrived at 11:15 and already busy. By the time we left (1.5 hours later) there was a line of cars 20 deep waiting to get in. Both the service and food were excellent. Def going back.

    Always a great time! Get a table outside. Order a dozen to share with the family and get your hands dirty. Crabs are caught fresh daily. A must stop in spot whenever we pass through Maryland.

    Ate at Jimmy's yesterday. The Super Crabs were delicious. Get there early, they don't take reservations and it was quite a long wait. Mind you, it was also Fathers Day. :)

    30 minute + wait to park, 1 hour + for the table. Hit the beer station in the parking lot! Go down to the pier, there are crab tanks... saw a few crabs backing out of the shell, rich!

    Let them know if crabs are mushy... They will replace them.

    If you have never eaten blue crab, they will show you an easy demonstration! You will be a pro in no time, and the crab is sweet and delicious!
