A colorful seafood restaurant for kids of all ages--especially the younger ones. – In Short
Admittedly kitschy, unavoidably noisy, this Red Lobster for rug rats is like an oversized seaside shanty awash in oceanic memorabilia--fishing nets, souvenir trinkets, plastic flotsam and jetsam. Staffed with a lively crew of G-rated table-dancing servers, the family-friendly chain anchors its menu in all things crab: Crab balls, crab cakes, crab dip, crab gumbo. Finicky children opt for corndogs or hamburgers; shellfish-phobic adults dine on rib eye steak or mesquite-grilled chicken.
Naasssssssty – Nasty nasty nasty
Did I say ti was Nasty ???? yep , real nasty
Good Crabs! – I'm from Maryland and crabs are a staple there so when I saw this place from the highway, I got excited. It's like a visit to the beach without the long road trip and the food was very good! We had the Steamed Dungenous Crab with Bay Seasoning and Fried Shrimp. I ordered a Rum Punch but there were OUT OF RUM! That put a dent in my evening but a Marguarita solved the problem. The shrimp were good but the crab was GREAT! Fresh, flavorful, sweet, and moist. My son's was a little on the small side, however. It was supposed to be 1/2 pound but someone put their thumb on the scale obviously. The fries were fries. We completed the meal with Key Lime Pie. It was decent but nothing to write home about. The ambience is a very entertaining. I recommend this place!
