“Great food, relaxed atmosphere. She-crab soup is excellent. All the TV news crews eat here if they are within 60 minutes of Ocean City. , Nothing great to look at but the food is some of the best on the Island. Don't forget to make a reservation. Can easily be over an hour if you just walk up hoping to get in.”

“Worth every penny (around $18 for a dozen) Plain, walnut or raisin. Best I have had in South Jersey. Even left over buns (Not likely) are a treat the next day (Keep in a container to prevent drying out), put a slab of butter on top of each bun, warm and smile till they are gone. It will not take long. Get there early in the morning and they will still be warm.”
