City Crab & Seafood Company
Lobster Special FourchuThe lobster was large but unfortunately was not cut down the middle so that the insides could be eaten and the claws were not cracked and it was difficult to crack the claws even with the tool provided. Since I cannot eat corn, I asked the waitress if I could have a substitution and she very graciously was able to give me a mixed salad instead, which was a perfect accompaniament to the lobster. I feel that there should be a choice of "sides" for those diners with special needs.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI came to City Crab yearsI came to City Crab years ago and the food and drinks were delicious and affordable. Nothing has changed. The ambiance, food and service is still great. Don't take the negative reviews seriously.

This is a relaxing and pleasant place to come for a drink or a full meal.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently OutstandingCity Crab is consistently outstanding. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best), I've never had a meal here that was less than a 9.5. The ingredients are fresh, everything's very flavorful and well-prepared, and the service is always great.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Fourchu Lobster was absolutelyThe Fourchu Lobster was absolutely delicious. Glad to have caught the special.
City Crab is one of my favorite spots.....5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined here before,We have dined here before, but this time was particularly enjoyable. The service and food was better then ever. The only disappointment was that there was something wrong with their on tap diet coke. The first time it was flat, so we sent it back. The second time it was carbonated but tasted funny. We switched to plain selzer instead, and it was fine.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood seafoodCity Crab prepares and serves very good, very fresh, seafood, in an atmosphere that is very appropriate for its theme. I'd not hesitate to go back anytime. The prices were good, the service 1st class.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat treatLovely restaurant wide a wide selection of tasty dishes5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA reliable favorite.

Loved the soft shelled crab and shrimp and pasta . Attentive waiters . Would definitely return with friends ! Perfect after matinee theatre dinner with no crowds !5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCrab legs loversI enjoyed the meal but the server was disappointing. The food was hot and fresh. I can't express how delicious my husband's king crab legs were. I couldn't stay out of his plate. My shrimp scampi was just as good. The server was too weird. Maybe just inexperienced. We will eat here again but definitely will not have same server!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Deal in Town for Lobster RollsI have visited this restaurant on several occasions for lunch specifically for their twin lobster rolls. The rolls are over flowing with delicious sweet lobster, which is not mixed with lots of fillers and/or mayonaise and other dressings. In addition, they serve a nice size side of tasty fries cooked to perfection. I have not found another restaurant of this caliber or more, who has as good a deal.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate outside so noise levelWe ate outside so noise level is really not relevant.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood LoversDelicious true to form seafood meant for the in-city seafood lover!
True jumbo jumbo shrimps as well as actual lumps of crab in the crab cakes!
It's pricey, but worth every penny because you get what is offered and the best is offered!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI always have the AlaskanI always have the Alaskan King Crab legs. They are quite expensive and worth every single cent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationGreat food and service. I have recommended the restaurant, and I will be returning.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT PLACEThis has become my go-to restaurant for a fun celebration.

This was my ffirst time here and I highly recommend it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat specials!The special for $21. is great. The crab soup is very tasty. The fish with the lobster potatoes was good.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentAlways dependable for fresh seafood. New Englander lobster/clam/mussel/crab feast makes for a hearty dinner. Peach cobbler, nicely warmed, was a pleasant conclusion5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Good, But ...This is a very small thing but I couldn't help but think it seemed odd. My friend and I were sitting in a booth just beneath the blackboard where the specials are listed. My friend saw soft shell crab and our waiter informed us that was the special for the day before, and was not available. ???
I expect that from some places but City Crab is by no means cheap so when I see something on the board I expect it's accurate and TODAY - something I can actually order.
Then we ordered them anyway and instead of sauteed (which I was sure the waiter said) he brought them out fried and overly salty. Normally we split a bottle of wine and linger at City Crab - this was the first time we left half the food, had one drink and went elsewhere.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice late night surpriseWent there for the Oyster Menu and was more than satisfied with what I found.

I celebrated my birthday here this past January with my family. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The waitress was very attentive. I returned on Easter Sunday with a friend and, again, we were not disappointed.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch menu was impressiveLunch menu was impressive - wait staff recited the specils for lunch (not on the menu). I would recommend this estabilshment for lunch anytime.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was impeccable--The service was impeccable-- Kristin was great. The seafood was amazing. Wonderful tuna tartare, heavenly oysters, and divine grouper.. Only the pasta was disappointing. It was gummy and solid, in fact. But the flavors where so well constructed, that the meal was still recommendable without the pasta.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a very pleasant diningHad a very pleasant dining experience - actually much better than expected. The menu was extensive with so many delicious choices that made the final decision a little difficult. The food was exceptionally good.

Great selection of specials and very accommodating to any food allergies. Can't wait to return.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSnow Crab HeavenWe have come to City Crab 4 or 5 times now, and it's always a great experience. My husband and I love the crab pots; I was shocked when the one I ordered showed up with a whole lobster hanging out on top. They don't do anything halfway here! We had a peppermint bark brownie with ice cream for dessert that was perfect. It's definitely a special occasion sort of place (though not too dressy; a sweater and jeans is fine), but I will continue to return for my special occasions.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was outstanding,Our server was outstanding, friendly, helpful, patient and answered questions with full knowledge of the food and wine. I have been going here for 20 years (since they opened), however I moved to California 2 years ago, so I don't get to enjoy SC as much, but I did make it a point to take a friend and family this time because we always enjoyed it when we lived in the neighborhood. I was glad to see that (except for the prices, not a negative comment, everything has gone up over the last 4 years) it was still the same old wonderful place to eat fresh seafood.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
