The basics is this: You order seafood. They boil it. You extract the meat (and there's a TV televising the various way to efficiently get meat out of crustaceans), dip it in sauce, and eat it.
If you're not sure what sauce to get, they can bring out a flight of samplers. Get this!
To me, crab is crab. So I looked at the menu and ordered other stuff instead. Yeah, I even got the chicken. Really.
Seafood Chowder ($4.50)
- Miscellaneous bits of stuff in it. Still came across as slightly on the watery side of a chowder, and definitely not chunky with stuff.
- A bit bland. If you have the flight of sauce samplers, you can try putting a bit of your favourite sauce into it and stirring it up.
- There's actually stuff in this! Looks like similar stuff as the chowder.
- Tastes ok.
Fried Bread ($2)
- Two small buns. Price is atrocious unless you are somehow wow'ed by the novelty of it.
- Came hot. Too hot to handle, really.
- You can get something similar in some dim sum places (like Dinesty).
Sweet Potato Fries ($6)
Deep Fried Chicken Wings ($6.50) comes coated in a sweet BBQ sauce
- Probably by the pound but we got 5 wings, a mix of wings and drumsticks.
- Came fresh, meat was moist. Nicely fried chicken but don't expect crispy skin, especially not after they've been tossed in BBQ sauce.
- At over $1 per wing... You want wings by the pound, go to a wing place.
- Thick rings, thin batter. Came piping hot.
- Definitely use the sauce as it's bland otherwise. If you got the flight of sauce samplers for the seafood boil, maybe experiment with those.
Overall, for Snacks and Sides, expect somewhat pricey portions and passable taste.
