Food was delicious and came out very fast. They did forget to put in part of our order but they ended up taking 10% off the bill

Steamed king crab legs were excellent and they accommodated my sauce mixture request. Will return soon

They were pretty much out of stock of all the addon’s. They were very disorganized. We were seated for 15 minutes than they randomly took our temperature. Everyone’s food was very bland and came out incorrectly. It was us and one other family in there so not sure why service was so horrible.

Fantastic meal at a good price. Love the Lime and Cilantro seasoning with easy peel shrimp and potatoes. Very quiet too and extremely helpful staff.

The best crab we’ve had since our last trip to Maryland! The king crab, snow crab, and shrimp were all fantastic as was the Cajun spices calamari. The Shaking House Cajun sauce we chose for the boils was also incredible. Cool decor, and the service was off the charts. We will be adding it to our regular rotation.

The food was delicious and served hot. I had the shrimp. The other 2 people I was with got the mussels and a lobster roll with onion rings. I would definitely go back again.

What a treat! I am so excited to have a southern-style seafood option up here, and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was amazingly better than I was expecting, being in the old d’angelos, and they’ve got some nice local brews to offer too! I could tell the owner is enjoying running her restaurant, and that attitude makes for an all around positive experience. Parking was a challenge since it was so busy, but I got a spot. Make reservations!

This place is amazing! Served our seafood in a bag and gave us plastic gloves ... the flavor was out of this world. Really the best I have ever had. The service was great and the interior was much nicer than exterior. So glad we gave it a shot and we will come back soon!

Everything was terrible. We didn't get our corn, our sausages, our clam chowder, our fries, and asked for head-on shrimp and it came head off. Had to ask for everything multiple times. Had to ask for refills multiple times before actually getting one. They actually forgot to make our clam chowder. Had to ask for the clam chowder twice and it finally came at the end of our dinner. I do not recommend this place until they have better service. And the flavor wasn't that great. The best thing about the night was the 20% off on our bill.

Food tastes great but be ready for a garlic overload! Even with provided plastic gloves, garlic will be "on you" for 2 days plus. But if you're ready to 'get messy' and enjoy good eats, dig in!

Careful with the door. It slams and you will get scolded for it upon entering. Food was good but a bit overpriced for the area.

No utensils or napkins were provided with our appetizer, requested them but did not arrive until our entrees. Food was great, but our order was not complete. Took a long time for someone to come back after food was delivered to see how everything was, then a long wait to get the two missing items. Our first visit, others were asked and given a great overview but we did not.

Food was delicious but the Alaskan King Crab legs were on the luke warm to colder side but the flavor was great. Service was great, waitress was friendly and explained the items when needed. She was very apologetic about the crab legs. Overall it was a good experience and will go back.

It was pretty empty but my food still took forever. The waitress said something about it and said she would give me a discount which came in the form of taking off the $2 charge for my corn. I ordered a pina colada which taste like pineapple juice with some soda and lots of ice. The crawfish was not cooked properly

Unique. Messy but very tasty and unusual way to serve the food. Enjoyable experience and very attentive waitresses.
