Fodor's Review

The late Wayne McDonald started with a cozy one-room roadhouse in 1955, when this stretch was a remote service road just west of the little airport. Now run by Wayne's family, the still-rustic place brags that it is still crackin' after more than a half century. The ample menu, once luring entertainer Arthur Godfrey, and more recently Johnny Depp and Dan Marino, features garlic crabs (patrons bang crabs open with mallets on tables covered with newspapers) and peel-and-eat shrimp (either with garlic and butter or spiced and steamed). Lunch specials include a fine fish sandwich with fries and a soda for around $12. Finish off with pie or cheesecake.
