The food was always pretty decent but most of the beer was bad.The only one I remember being decent was the wheat.

The beer was very disappointing. Most of them were middle of the road "wimpy beers." No problem, but one Hop Monster would have been nice. Every Beer had a certain "Belgian Flavor" to it (even the stout). That's my polite way of saying that I think there was an infection problem or cross contamination from a batch of Weizen beer. It could have been they are using a poor strain of yeast (Fleishman's quick rise perhaps).

The beer here is less-than-adequate. I really think that they suffer from a brewer who has sero brewing background or knowledge. Certainly, there is a fundamental lack of brewing knowledge here that needs to be addressed. The brewing equipment is old and completely misdesigned, but still a pro brewer worth his salt can brew drinkable beer in the bathrrom sink and toilet.

I agree that the Sturgeon Stout was somewhat lacking, but they get points for variety. Their best offering by far was the Irish Red, it tasted like a 90 Shilling ale or something along those lines, very good. The beer battered cod sandwhich I had was excellent. Back to the Stout, it smelled great, with a pronounced coffee aroma, but the flavor was very sharp and sour and I did not enjoy it at all. Still worth trying if you are in the area.

No problems with the food and overall comfort of the place. But the beer was vile! The Stout was too weak but tolerable if you thought you were drinking a Brown Ale, and the rest tasted so weak and barely had any taste. Definitely in need of a new brewer.

I don't know what some of these other reviewers are thinking. I have been to this place maybe 5 times and never once had a bad experience. The food is excellent and is varied seasonally. In the summer they had baked talapia, which was to-die-for, and come fall they had a shrimp platter which included breaded, peal 'n eat, steamed, and crab-stuffed jumbo shrimp (simply awesome!). The beer compliments the food nicely, with 4 core beers - Buzz, (for which there is no claim or intention to taste like coffee - it is a honey/wheat brew, and yes I asked the brewmaster personally one Saturday afternoon when he happened to be around), Wheat, Stout (very bold and complex, like Guiness but fresher) and the Pilsener (which was ok, but nowhere near the quality of the other beers). They also feature one or two seasonal beers. The one this past winter was a red ale called Christmas ale and was one of the best red beers I've ever. had.

Not bad at all. The Fall beer was good. Buzz Beer was good, but not coffee beer. Even though it was good, I don't know if it was $4/pint good. Also, the best crab dip in the world!

They need to stay in the restuarant business, but should either get a new brewer or get out of the brewing side of the business.

Definitely the worst Stout I have ever had. They bought the rights to BUZZ Beer from the Drew Carey Show. It does is not coffee flavored. It was ok. Looks like a crab shack alright. The brewer needs some lessons. Not worth the trip even if they do have BUZZ beer!

The Crab might be Mad, but so were we after we made a special trip to sample the beer. Of the six beers available they ranged from a stout that was barely drinkable to the pilsner that tasted like it was spoiled. The ones in the middle we closer to the pilsner than the stout. If you like seafood, go for the food, but have a soft drink

We only stopped in to sample the beers and have a snack. The carrot cake was outstanding. But the beer was only so-so.

Nice place, more a restaurant feel than a brewpub, but both beer and food were excellent. Wish it was closer!

This place is kind of hard to find as well as get to, it's best to call ahead for directions. Their selection is unfortunately limited to 4 beers, their stout being the best of the 4 (it's complex, and very hearty). If you enjoy seafood it's worth the trip.
