Worst shaking crab ever..i get the area is surrounded by college kids, however they don't care for their jobs. They're on their phones, CONSTANTLY talking, never get the order right. I will never go to this location AGAIN. The food i ordered wasn't hard at all.. took 3 try's to get it right.. oh and the phone doesn't work. Don't WASTE your time or money!!!!

I grew up in New Orleans, where we do this kind of boil all spring and summer long. So i was so happy to discover this place. I got the boiled shrimp and they were literally the worst shrimp I’ve ever had. They were so soft they just mushed up in your mouth. I could not eat them and had to throw $30 worth of shrimp away. This is NOT a New Orleans style seafood restaurant. Only in New England :(

Total disappointment!!!! Hahaha.... garlic Mac n cheese, Alaskan king crab legs, fried lobster tail and garlic noodles..... A JOKE!!! The worst food ever! To charge people $100 for this us robbery. 2 small Alaskan king crab legs for $41???? Ordered the crab legs mild and they were so spicy, I couldn't even eat them without washing them off!!! The Mac and cheese is velveeta.... which I hate!! The noodles have far too much garlic, and the lobster tail is tiny. How DARE you full review
