Grab a table in the tiny Christmas light–strewn room at this 47-year-old subterranean spot, and start out with the Mulligan stew. For more fried goodness, have the Thirty-Two Pointer for an entrée—a crunchy pile of smelts, perch, frog legs, clam strips and fat shrimp. And if you’re looking to crack some crab, splurge on the massive, meaty king legs.
