The Food section rated this restaurant's crab cake for a July 2009 story about the area's best.
Whether you order them broiled or fried, the verdict's the same: If the crab cakes were as well-seasoned as the server (22-plus years of experience) and the celebrity photos on the wall (Tom Cruise, pre-Scientology, and Raquel Welch, pre-plastic surgery), they could have been contenders. Besides East Coast crab, the cakes contain unsalted cracker crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, mayonnaise and parsley; the latter is prominent enough to lend an herb-y appeal. The broiled ones get dry, while the fried ones have an okay crunch.
I've always been a fan of this place, but after awhile, the food had lost it's appeal to me and the atmosphere became a bit too divey. That is until I read a random review on Yelp about new Management taking over and how major changes have already happened that is now getting it 5 star reviews by customers. So I decided to go the night an Irish band was playing. We had an absolute blast. The crabs were huge. My crab cake salad I still dream about. The crab cakes were filled with crab and the dressing was light but so flavorful. My friend got a 2.5 lb lobster that had meat so thick and juicy. Between dancing at our tables, the large pitchers of beer and eating throughout the meal, we spent alot of $$$ but trust me, it was well worth it!
