    Would never sit outside again. The sun was blaring, uncomfortably, making I impossible to enjoy. Moved from the railing closest to the building (but still outside) and the comfort level was still unacceptable.

    The food was good, not great, but good. We wanted to sit inside, but unfortunately, we were seated in a booth in the middle aisle and felt like we were stuck in a tunnel. Couldn't figure out why because there were very few diners inside at the time and most all of the window seats (view of the water) were empty. Not sure if we will return again.

    The hostesses really need training in customer service. We made reservation on line which they had but they really didn't care where they seated us. It was our anniversary. The waitress was very good however, and it was not her fault the meal was ordinary. The "stuffed" shrimp were tiny and topped with a mushy "stuffing". The fried green tomatoes were hard and I think one piece of he mozzarella was off. The pork dish could have been good if it didn't come out pink and when sent back was obviously miked (as it only took a minute) was dry and inedible. The "specialty" drinks were terrible and served in an ordinary juice glass with no attempt to make them "special". We weren't acknowledged as we were leaving in- we were pointedly ignored.

    We went to Laishley to celebrate my aunt's 98th birthday...the service was spectacular, our server was amazing. First thing he did upon our request was to get a cushion for my little 95 pound aunt. Each of us ordered something different than the menu items offered, and each dish came back perfectly. It is a great place to take out of town guests and to just go whenever you want to watch the sunset and have a great meal. The sushi is always delicious!!

    Every time my kids come home from college they want to go to the Crabhouse for sushi. Their other food is great as well. One complaint I have is the cocktails. They don't make the best drinks.

    This might have been good at one time but not now. Soup was gloppy, fish similar to the vegetables came from the freezer. To make it bad things worse, ice cream topping was inferior to Hershey's syrup. I was sorely disappointed.

    Food was great, loved the view. Waitress never served our food. Server brought it out, another server volunteered to put on our table so we didn't have to wait for ours. Then she showed up again when she asked if we wanted dessert. Key lime pie delicious. Would go back but would ask for a different waitress.

    Everything is usually good here, but I don't care for a place where dogs are allowed. Dogs should not be in a restaurant in my opinion. Other than that I would recommend it.

    ...the hush puppies were overcooked. They should be a light golden, not a dark brown that you have to cut with a knife before trying to eat without hurting your gums.

    As a seafood restaurant that indicates blue crabs on the menu, I am extremely disappointed that I was informed that there hasn't been steamed blue crabs available since February 2014. I don't understand why blues can't be shipped in from LA, MD or VA.

    We arrived early had a cocktail at the outside bar. We were seated at our table within 5 min. Nice view but the table was located next to a door leading out to the deck which was used for seating patrons. Our appetizer was the Coconut Shrimp, main courses were the Scallops and the Shrimp and Pasta with a white sauce. All food was great as well as the wine. Price reasonable <> $80.00 without tip. Waitress was very nice and helpful. The paper that was used on the tables was very annoying, every time the hostess seated someone outside and opend the door a gust of wind would blow the paper up rearranging what ever was on the table. Waitree finally put a stack of small plates on the end of the table. on top of he paper, problem solved.

    We waited 5 minutes after being seated before anyone greeted us or asked us if we would like a water etc. it could have been a new shift starting though. Once our waitress Nicole did come to the table she was very good. Ordered 2 appetizers. Both failed. Coconut shrimp and California rolls. I had the ahi tuna salad for dinner,was very good. Little over cooked even though I ordered it rare. My daughter ordered the steamer pot. She enjoyed it. My husband ordered some sort of pasta in wine sauce. He said it was ok.

The food was excellent, we had the special of the evening, amberjack, it was excellent, served over rice that had a wonderful flavor with green beans, cooked to perfection. The service was excellent, view to die for, all and all it was an excellent first visit. Honestly, the best meal I have had in a very long time!

    Expected a great dining experience and was very disappointed. The service was terrible. Order was inaccurate, the server never checked up on us after busboy brought our food. What really grossed us out was watching an employee clean up spilled iced tea on the deck then use the SAME cloth to wipe tables. The only saving grace was the waterside table and harbor view.
