Long-popular Lincoln Park dive serving tasty crab legs and other seafood. Cash only.
Its not easy to find a true dive in Lincoln Park, but this cash-only seafood restaurant fills the bill with a low ceiling, a long, crowded bar, and an entrance eight steps below street level. It seems like its been there forever (in fact, it opened in 1968), serving consistently tasty crab legs, decent shrimp, and raw oysters on the you-know-what. Some prefer the fried fish offerings, served in generous portions with fries. Service has that friendly diner feel.
