Andrea L., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on June 24, wrote, "Wow!... The crab legs were still hot when they got to me and slid out of the shell perfectly! Shrimp was perfectly seasoned. The only regret is that I didn't order more. Will be ordering again."
Yelper A K. added, “Normally, if you make your customer wait an hour or more, get the order right and offer a free side dish or something and I'd be willing to give this place another try. But not only did we pay extra for things we didn't get and food was subpar, it was a regretful late lunch/dinner.”
