Best crab legs in the city! I was just at Joes crab shack two weeks ago, I got the king crab for $52.00. I had some better at the Half Shell for $24.00. I recommend it to anyone. - Joe P., 12/16/2005

Without doubt the best food in Chicago.
An unforgetable experience. - Charlie M Ireland, 06/07/2005
This restaurant, located below street level, has a homey diner feel to it. This cash-only establishment serves up delicious crab legs, as well as good shrimp. Fried fish items, served with fries, is served in ample portions. Open daily for lunch and dinner. - Alotta, 06/07/2005
i ate here once so many years ago that i don't even remember what i had. i know there are frog legs on the menu. i'm sure i liked the place. i thought it was funny that the bathroom had a full bathtub in it with old flower decals stuck to it, like an apartment bathroom. i think the bartender was really nice too. quaint. like outdoor patio out front too. - jms, 07/02/2011
