Thank you for your understanding and patience.

On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here –  As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old).  We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Update – May 31, 2019

We are happy to announce that almost all functionality has been restored and we have migrated to a new platform which will also speed up the site (something that has been asked for).  Unfortunately, we have not yet found a way to securely host the forum archive, so it remains offline for now.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

Best OR Worst Calabash...(all you can eat)... restaurants  



This topic came up in another restaurant thread.

I'm a crab leg guy, and if you are a crab leg guy, there is no better value than at a Calabash joynt.

All other info about non-seafood items would be appreciated by others reading this I am sure... so let us know what you know.

Thanks in advance.

Capt Georges + Capt Benjamins are the best IMO, but it's been a long time since 
I tried any others.   To have a lot of fresh legs coming out, you want to be at a busy 
place, so they don't sit there. 
There are some new small places that have come up with names that sound like 
the other popular places.  I would not trust those.      There is or was a place named 
Crabby Mike's.   I thought I saw a new place somewhere on 17 with a name of 
Crabby George's.

Good point about wanting to be at a busy restaurant in order to get fresher food.



Not a seafood/crab leg eater - however, we go to the Giant Crab every Thanksgiving and enjoy it. Lot's for me to eat - fresh steaks, pasta, hibachi, and I do like their butterfly shrimp. Deserts are OK. Can handle once a year until I get hungry again

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars


Bimini's on Lake Arrowhead Road, not an all you can eat, but portions are good size.
