I wish you would really take heed to the reviews you are getting on the crabs especially. We frequent this establishment several times a year. The last several visits were a little disappointing. We get the ayce combo and the crabs were small watery and rotten. no meat at all. Please dont let your restaurant go down hill like so many do after being in business for so long. Please take heed before you have no customers at all! Also the steamed shrimp has no old bay. they taste like they were just steamed in water. Put some beer and old bay in em when you steam them!
I went here on a co-worker recommendation for somewhere to go for AYCE steamed crabs, but I will certainly never go back and on Monday I am calling the health department to put in a complaint on this restaurant. Service started off bad, it took two hours to get through 3 trays of steamed crabs. Not because they were piled high with crabs, no, it was because there was only maybe 12 or 15 crabs per tray for 3 guys, then it took another 15-20 minutes to get another order. On top of that we noticed that some of the crabs were not very good and smelled odd, but we chalked it up to bad luck since the others tasted fine and we tossed the bad ones aside. We finally asked the waitress to bring us double orders, which she gladly did. A bit later we had a big pile of crabs and everything seemed to be finally going well. Then we started noticing that for every one good crab there were 2-3 rotten crabs! I'm not talking about a mild off smell like the earlier ones, these were stinking, runny, brown, totally and utterly rotten crabs. It was so bad that it caused all three of us to top eating. Never in my life have i had such a horrible experience, the owner of this establishment should be ashamed. I really hope that I don't get sick and end up with food poisoning from the crabs that I did eat! Rt 30 Seafood is terrible! Do not ever go here!
And in case you don't believe me, go to the PA Dept of Health website and look at all the violations this place has, it wasn't even in compliance with the heath dept code last year! https://www.pafoodsafety.state.pa.us/web/inspection/publicinspectionsearch.aspx
BEWARE!!!!! Seafood is room temperature and soggy. Not worth the money. The waitress accused the table beside us of eating the AYCE and not paying for it. The owner refused to come to the table. The waitress said they caught her on video but refused to show them the tape. The lady offered to pay if they could show her the video of her eating the crab. She insisted that she did not eat one bite of crab. I noticed there are cameras everywhere. We won't ever come back.
Awful Awful Service – Last night we had a girls night out. We were all hungry for seafood, so we thought we would give this a try. Wrong choice. Our servers name was Tia and she was horrible. It took and hour and forty-five minutes to get a salad and crab cake sandwich. This is the first time in my life that I didn't leave a tip. I had to give them 1 star in order to write this review. If I could give them a 0 star I would have. I will never return and neither will the other ladies.
AWESOME SEAFOOD!!!!! – The seafood was AWESOME and you get a lot of it!!! The service was really good too!! It was well worth the money you spend. I can't wait until we go again!!
Bring drinks – We stopped in here while traveling from Martinsburg WV to Wellsboro PA, on a over 90 degree day . Being from Md I was happy to find a crab place in PA, we wanted a dozen crabs and a couple of cold drinks. Unfortunately this resteraunt is BYOB, and nothing was posted to that effect on the many numerous banners outside. We got water and all you could eat crab feasts. The first person that seated us and took our drink order, rolled her eyes at us because we didnt know they didnt serve beer, and of course we should have also known the tea wasnt sweet and was Brisk tea.... the second waitress to take over our table < we were clueless they had changed > was nasty and condenscending. I guess the first one had warned her we were dummies or something. So finally after waiting for the first of the crab shells to be removed and dishes cleared and a new round of meat filled crabs to come for over an hour.. I got upset, water was empty we had smoked 2 cigarettes outside, sweaty and still no service. I asked to speak to the manager. She came out and thankfully Jen took our table over. She was cheerful and pleasent and made sure we were waited on, as paying customers should be. I left her a 40.00 tip. It was nice to feel human again, and actually be served while spending money well earned. Thank you Jen for being wonderful. The food was also very good but the managers need to get rid of Debbie and Tia the worst servers that have EVER waited on me in any establishment, as I have never had anyone before make me feel like crying so far from home.
