Went for lunch last week and wife and I split the crab cake sandwich and it was superb. Large chunks of crab and little filler. We went back for dinner for happy hour and the special, 1 pound crab legs. We also had the half pound shrimp, as well as a dozen oysters. The crab and shrimp were a little over cooked, but still tasty. The oysters were unfortunately gritty and could have used a better rinse before shucking. We returned tonight for the prime rib special. We also had the soups. The Hatteras clam chowder and Crawford bay corn and crab chowder. Both were outstanding and loaded with flavor. The prime rib was very good and a great size for splitting, as 12 ounces is a bit big for either of us on our own. The sauteed vegetable medley and house coleslaw were also nice sides, but honestly was not the biggest fan of the mashed potatoes and gravy, as they simply reminded me of school lunches. For some that may be a good thing, just not for me. All said, good food, great price point, and beautiful views of the Elizabeth river.
Nice scenery. The drink specials are good, but the food is a bit bland. They could use a better alternative butter for crab leg dipping. Whichever brand of butter they’ve been using taste like cooking oil. The mashed potatoes are good, but the gravy taste like “Gravy Train” dog food. The oysters a gritty, but bearable especially if you choose Rockefeller style.
We went this past Saturday for Mother's Day the wait was an hour which was fine we walked around taking pictures. Our server Dave was awesome he was down to earth and took good care of us. We sat outside and once it started to get cold he helped us move back inside. Now for the cons management is totally rude and unprofessional. The manager that night gave us attitude because we asked to move indoors because it got cold. She seemed like she didn't want to be there. The food was hot and fresh. The drinks were also delicious. If it wasn't for the rude girl with the glasses and gray hoodie then it would have been a perfect night so advice if you don't want to work with people then don't work at a restaurant.
Oh my goodness. Absolutely incredible food. I started with calamari. Probably the best I have ever had. Enough for 2-3 people. Next was the fried flounder with fries and beans. This plate was so good. With every bight I was impressed with how good food was. My spouse had meatloaf sandwich with coleslaw. I am not a big fan of meatloaf but it look good and I had a small bite. Very flavorful and tasty. You must try this place. Oh and to boot restaurant is on the water.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience! You can’t beat the setting, surrounded by water and boats! Food was delicious and service was top notch in a family friendly environment. I highly recommend for anyone in the area seeking out quality local seafood.
