THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cy's Crab House Restaurant Review

: If this place happened to be located on the water, it would sink from the horde of customers in it---the pricing is that affordable. The problem is that everybody shows up on weekend nights. There are also times when the seafood shines and others when it's as dull as a bad B movie. Simple dishes---blue crab claws and crab cakes---fare better than some of the more complex creations (as in stuffed prawns). Like just about every other seafood house in town, there is Key lime pie for dessert. And like most others, it is but a pale imitation of the real thing. Don't look for much in the way of atmosphere either, but do look for daily raw bar specials in the bar.
