    OKAY!!!! We went there tonight. It didn't help that I-205 was backed up with and accident -- took us 45 min. to go 15 miles. Remember -- I'm from a small town where "congestion" means 3 cars at an intersection!!! WHEW!

    Noise level -- not too bad ---- but we were there early -- as we were leaving the crowds had come and people were waiting in line.
    Food --- good except I let them put Old Bay Seasoning on all the fish --- well, I've used that product and NEVER felt like my mouth was on fire!!!! I'm sure they put Cayan in it!! -- otherwise -- YUM YUM YUM!!! Still haven't had my fill of crab though!!!
    Prices -- yeah -- spendier than we normally spend. We got a "steam pot"....and an appetizer of 12 shrimp. We shared it all -- so total price was less than if we'd gone to Outback.

    We've been, we'll do it again!

    I've been there 3 times because DH loves it there. Honestly, I don't know why. We were rushed and it's noisy and crowded to the point of annoyance. But worse of all, ALL 3 TIMES I GOT SICK. That can't possibly be a coincidence.

    No kidding. Stomach pain and bad diarrhea. So now, I don't care how much DH loves it, he can go alone. Never again.

    I hesitate for the same reason, but I have had great luck when I tell the waiter that I am allergic to shell fish and could they please ask the cook what I could eat that does not have any shellfish. I then tell them that if the pan that cooks my portions has not been well washed then need to have the paramedics standby. I have not had problems.

    It is good but expensive. Those steamer pots they have been advertising start at $25.00. Start! You can get some for 2 people that are $39.95. Remember these are Texas prices. May be higher or lower where you are. Was fun.

    They have a nice couch and a TV in the entry area. Usually a couple supportive spouses chilling while waiting for the ladies. He'll have a good time

    We went about 4:00 and it wasn't bad, but by the time we left (5:00 or so) it was getting crazy. And yes, $25.00 isn't bad at all for what we got.
