    Not that impressed. They put paper over the table and grease soaked through the paper. I asked for it to be cleaned. They removed the soaked paper and put another paper on top. Never washed the table. Nothing that special about the food. Bathrooms were dirty. Made me wonder what the kitchen looks like.

    Really good food and service. Got seated right away. The dining experience is very messy but the food was good and seemed fresh. The food is pricey but it was nice as it was a different type of dining experience.

    If you like crab legs, you have to come to King Crab - the snow crab boil at $32/pound (about 2 'hands') is just outstanding, comes to table boiling hot with new potatoes and corn. We started off with a 2 pound order for 2 of us, but It was so good we ordered another 2 pounds!! Very friendly staff, lots of parking, easy to find on Transit Road.

    This place is great and I dare say better than Red lobster. Seafood is so good and so fun to get messy and dig in. Be prepared to get messy. It is a great place to go. I highly recommend!

    Food was brought out all at once Could not enjoy appetizers because the waitress put the salads on the table immediately. Ate a few bites and the entree was brought out. No regard for timing. Food was excellent and the restaurant was very clean and well decorated

    Took 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. My corn was spoiled and had to send it back. Too expensive for the amount and quality of food you get. Will not be going back.

    The shrimp and sausage were very good! The kids loved the hush puppies! However the salmon was dry and overcooked. The crawfish were very fishy. I would not recommend with of these dishes. The service was very good but a little disappointed in some of the meals.

    Very little selection of wine and cocktails. The wine I did have was in a small bottle like the ones you get on a plane. It was terrible. Drink my friend order was not much better Food was good, but really salty. I would try this place again, but perhaps order something else, not steamed seafood and no alcohol. Service was wonderful and so was our server.

    Me and my family went here for my birthday. We were seated right away as we had reservations. It took a long time for our server to come over and take our drink orders. Most of my party ended up going to the bar to order drinks because the drinks took forever to come. Everything took forever to come out and it looked like our server may have been the only server working in the restaurant. However, I received a free drink and a free lobster to make up for the long wait for our drinks and for our food. Overall, I had a good experience and the wait allowed me to bond with my family.
