    Great place to go if you are celebrating! Food is pricey! Ask for a table next to the window to get a good view of the river and the Tower Bridge.

    Is it wrong to just go for the Shark Bit haha and the crab dip, crab nachos and great balls of fire!! Yummy.

    If you don't eat Pork because of a food allergy, religious reasons, etc. DO NOT order any of the steam pots, they are boiled/steamed in the same water as all the pork sausage steam pots 😑

    For the price i think its meh. Was there on mothers day and service wasnt so good. I had the $20 crab cake dinner and they delivered the fries about 15 minutes after the cakes. Slammed.

    Very casual atmosphere. They serve buckets containing a whole crab, corn on the cob, and potatoes. Delicious!

    2-hour wait for a table for 6. At least Old Sac is right across the street. They let us take home the containers for our drinks. Try Shark Bite.

    I order my sandwich minus cheese & bacon, it's not because I'm "taking the fun out of it." I'm health conscious.

    Also, when I'm clearly pregnant, I would not like a cocktail menu but would've liked the extra water you had & didn't give to me since another server beat you to it. Veronica = bad service.

    If you want a quite and intimate dinner, do not eat here. It can be a bit noisy.
