  • Best pansy display in front that I’ve seen. Never been there probably never will but darn pretty pansy display (:


  • I miss the old location, which was next door. Why did they move?

  • I miss the old, divey Malt Shop. Many a 21st birthday was celebrated there.

  • Blithe

    I went to Wilson. This brings back Memories! :-).

  • Most overpriced dive bar food

  • Used to frequent their crab feast (all one could pound open – till one dropped). It was great. I don’t know if they still offer it.

  • If you’re eating there, rather than drinking as many pitchers of beer as your 19 year old self can funnel down your throat, you’re doing it wrong.

  • I think this is the place whose commercial I see on HGTV and other various cable stations from time to time. If so, on the off chance the owners are reading this: please, for the love of all things holy, get yourself a new marketing person and/or production company, stat! First the sound quality is so dreadful and muffled that viewers can barely make out the ad narration. Second, the ad opens with the owners (I think?) saying something to the effect of “Lots of you probably used to come here, but you stopped coming” or “you haven’t been here in a while” (I can’t remember the exact wording) before exhorting customers to come back and give them another try. That kind of mea culpa can theoretically work for some businesses, but RARELY. In most cases, you want a positive spin…you do NOT want to lead off with the explicit message that basically all your customers have given up on you. I don’t say this to be mean, I’m just a former communications strategist (not in television specifically, but I know generally how messages play to an audience) who hates to see small businesses and nonprofits expend their limited resources on misguided marketing.

  • The Dancing Crab’s commercials have to be the worst I’ve ever seen. The owners saying, “everybody left, but we fixed some things, so you should come back” is the most cringeworthy thing I’ve seen on TV in a while. I live in Friendship Heights and considered actually going to dinner here after I saw the commercial, out of pity for the owners.
