  • "...is the perfect word to describe this restaurant. The food was good, not outstanding. The service was fine. The room / atmosphere was nice. There was really nothing wrong with the place. A minor gripe would be that the menu felt kind of cheap, but I'm reaching even with that. It's not a bad thing that the restaurant wasn't outstanding. It may be a little on the pricey side, but it is seafood and it's not on the water/near a marina so it's going to be more expensive than normal fare. So, all in all, not bad if you're in the mood for shellfish, but otherwise not worth going out of your way for it."

  • "The steam pots were good. The biggest thing in the pot was the corn, most were accompanied by two small whole red potatoes and whatever else you order. I was a little disappointed that there was no steam pot that didn't have snow crab, lobster or crawfish. Like one with just shrimp, scallops, mussels and veggies. Also the portions of fish are super super SMALL! My husband was still hungry after ordering a $23 plate of salmon that came with 4 baby shrimp, a scoop of spinach and 4 mini red potatoes cut in half. Don't get me wrong the food is delicious but if you're expecting to get full you might want to load up on the biscuits (which were delicious by the way). Decor nice but the brick is fake. Only one bathroom and tight seating no space"

  • "We went to this restaurant with Brunch reservations. When we got there, we were told that they decided to stop brunches. The Matre D was not even pleasant about. Said come back at 2 pm. We had eaten there once before and found it mediocre. Definitely will never returns. Especially when there are so many other great restaurants in the slope. He tried to blame Open Table for not Notifying us. I had to disagree with him."

  • "I went with my friend because I heard good things from my friends. The service was outstanding, we got greeted by management and seated promptly. The food exceeded our expectations!! No wonder this place is called CRAB spot... the crabs were delicious - fresh and prepared to perfection. The environment was great and the waiter was attentive every detail. I recommend this place to anyone who has a taste for excellent seafood. This place is definitely on my return-to list!!!!"

  • "I have been there two times prior and it was good food and service. My kids wanted to go so we went for dinner. We were seated promptly and were greeted by management. My only compliant was finding something affortable for teenagers who werent sure what to get. A simple shrimp alfredo is a easy fix. I paid 20 for ribs which I could get somewhere cheaper and it wasnt really what she wanted. Althought, portion size was great we were at a seafood restaurant but since kids have a different palet there was no real in between options in entrees."

  • "My husband and I stepped out of our comfort zone of dinning ln our neighborhood of Bayridge to try something different. We read good reviews for the Crab Shop and decided to give it a try. Best crab cakes ever! Our food was perfectly cooked and our waitress Lily was wonderful! A big thumbs up! We will be back for sure :)"

  • "We ordered the Dungeoness Crab and the Wesport, both were bland and the overall experience was disappointing. For the same price you can get so much more in our neighborhood."

  • "At first site the restaurant looked really nice. Small place but a nice ambiance especially for couples. The place was full they had about 25 or so tables. Upon arrival we learned that there was a prix fixed menu for the night which we weren't aware of when we made our reservation so the menu items we had planned on ordering were not available. The entrees came and the salmon was actually it was pretty good or I was just really hungry after waiting so long w the slow service they had. Many couples left before being seated some before receiving there entrees. it really seamed like a nice cool spot and there normal menu was enticing.but there vday service put a bad taste in my mouth"

  • "The only positive thing about our Valentines dinner at Crab Spot was they gave all the women a rose. It was a 4 course prix fixe. We were served two courses before our drinks arrived and within a half an hour had been served out third course. Not only were we rushed through our meal, but the food was mediocre at best. The biscuits they served us were some of the worst I've ever had. Needless to say we will not be going back."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant to celebrate our first valentines. It was simply amazing. The food was the best seafood in new york. The staff was attentive helpful and very friendly. Most places with large portions have adequate food but this place has remarkable food. The flavors were spot on and the texture was simply perfect. Preparing seafood takes special skills and they definitely have it. The only thing is I wish we had a better table we were too close to the door but the place was packed so it was ok."

  • "The food was great. The seafood is fresh, well seasoned, and enough to make you feel satisfied and that your money was well spent. The service was good. I will def go back."

  • "Made reservations and still had to wait over 45 min for a table. The place is small. The staff, including the manager was very rude. There was only a pre-fix Valentine's Day menu available for $115 not including tax,tip, or drinks. There is no bar scene. The bar is actually very close to the tables which are positioned in a way the waiters are squeezing through to serve. As a table became available, the manager walks over to us to say we should eat at the bar because he's closing the kitchen soon. We pointed out we not only had reservations but the host was cleaning a table right behind us. He merely said ok and walked away. That was such a turn off my husband and I decided to leave. I saved about $150 and went to a local spot instead."

  • "We had a group of 7 and they easily accommodated us in this large, open restaurant. Service was prompt and friendly and the food was well prepared and very tasty. The ambiance was so/so add they could have turned down the lights and picked a bit better soundtrack, but that's a minor complaint. We plan to go back next time we have a taste food crab!"

  • "I planned a dinner with extended family at the beginning of the new year. I made reservations for six people on a Saturday evening. Turns out the Manager was trying to reach me to see if we could come in later because he had booked a large party at some point. I never got the message so we just showed up at the restaurant at our appointed time. He was apologetic, but at the same time, we were not given a prime spot (an expanded table near the door - drafty), despite the advance reservations. The service was great and the food was tasty, but let this serve as a warning. Even if you make reservations, you should call to confirm with the restaurant before showing up."

  • "Had a great time. They catered to us (we were there for a birthday dinner) & kept us posted ok delays or if something ran out ( food). We all had a good time & would go back again"

  • "The service was OK but our waiter totally forgot about us towards the end of the dinner which was unacceptable. I had to wave him down for almost 20 mins just to pay our bill. We had a reservation and our table was ready which was great. I did not like that some menu items were out and it was only 8 om Overall I had a good experience I no longer feel the need to go to Joe's Crab Shack... The seafood was great!!!"

  • "The service was excellent and the food was good BUT it is overpriced. I rated it kid friendly because there was a family sitting in the booth behind me and it was kid noisy at dinner."

  • "This place was recommended so I took my wife for her birthday. We agree with friends that the food is good. We tried the clam chowder. It's full of clams but I think they use a light cream that takes away from the fullness of the dish plus there's a slight bitter after taste. Our other dishes were flavorful but we had to wait far too long. We placed our dinner order shortly after our appetizers and waited for an hour for our entres. It seems only on server was covering the entire restaurant and they must have had only one chef. When our food arrived some items were at room temp. This appeared to be the case for other patrons from what we noticed."

  • "I came here for a birthday brunch, while the service was mediocre (the waitress was the bartender as well) there were only 3 tables at the most filled and yet our "unlimited mimosas" were very limited. Hopefully they get some help in here, this could be a really great place."

  • "My husband and I love seafood and decided to give this restaurant a try. We each had one of their steampots and enjoyed them. My only complaint is the restaurant doesn't serve frozen drinks. The waiter explained the blender would make too much noise, which I can understand. I would definitely recommend."
