We were there for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed. The food was interesting - thoughtfully prepared. Service was friendly, prompt & courteous. Portions and prices were appropriate. The calamari was a little over-cooked, making it chewy, but flavour was good & we enjoyed the dipping sauce. Our mains were enjoyable. We shared a chocolate mousse that seasoned with chi spices. Very interesting & yummy. We will return!

Loved it! Will go again.
This was our first dining experience at King Crab...and we enjoyed it! Fresh baked bread just out of the oven is always a plus-plus for me. My hubby had the chowder for an appetizer and found "0" clams in it! But...it was reported as very tasty anyway - rich base. Loved the sezchuan dusting on the calamari - and serving size was enough for 2 people! Nice surprise. I had red thai curry catfish and tasted "0" curry! Maybe it was me? Still delish tho. My glass of chardonnay was Mission Hill and a good pairing with the meal. Our server was attentive and cheerful. Nice ambience.....the place was almost full when we left! Reservations recommended on a Saturday nite. All in all - a great experience. We would go again.

Great place! Key lime pie is tops!
Was my first time experiencing this place, and was a little cautious after hearing some mixed reviews, mostly on portion sizes. Personally I dismissed them as I found no issues. Sure, its a little pricey, but this isn't Red Lobster.
Loved the food, lobster was cooked to perfection, and the goat cheese salad was fantastic (as well as the calamari appetizer).
The dessert menu was simply to die for, if for nothing else this establishment has the best key lime pie that I have ever tasted.
Its obviously a place that you wouldn't go on a regular basis (at least on my budget), wonderful place for a special occasion or treat.
The owner spoke to us briefly and was very proud of his place, especially said pie.

Great selections, lots of seafood. A MUST for seafood lovers. Very good service - good wine list. Suitable for couples, small groups.

party of 5 - everyone was pleased. The Beet and Goat cheese salad was a bit underwhelming but overall everything was very good.

Great food as usual!
Went for dinner on Saturday night and had a wonderful meal. Oysters and crab were excellent. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Hope to be back soon!

I took my date to your restuarant because she only eats seafood. I had been to King Crab once before with my parents and thought the food/experience was excellent. My date was very impressed with both the food and service and so was I. I wo9uld highly recommend your restaurant to anyone. It is a nice change from some of the other nice restaurants in town! I will definitely be back!

Two of us had the shrimp/pasta
Two of us had the shrimp/pasta special. One- shrimp was cooked perfectly, while the other shrimp were overdone. Sauce and vegetables in the pasta were excellent although we never had any peppers as mentioned on the menu. Dinner included only 5 shrimp so the $25 cost seemed rather expensive. Would suggest a bit more seafood or a lower cost.

Great food but watch the salt
Found the wait staff very accommodating and understanding when we asked to move due to a perfume allergy. Food would have been very good but the chef is very liberal with the salt. Found out at the end that if you know that you would prefer little or no salt they will accommodate you with this and other cooking options.

Menu Changed at King Crab
King Crab has added several new items to their menu. I had the curry dusted Mahi Mahi---very tasty---with black Thai risotto, completely tasteless and porridge-like and far too much on the plate. Better to add a few vegetables for flavour, and style. I thought the presentation was artless. I really enjoyed the mango creme brulee. My husband had the European Bass with vegetables---very good. He had the phyllo cheesecake and loved it. I tried it too and loved it. I had the shrimp cocktail with curry sauce---very delicious and meaty shrimp. John enjoyed his Caesar salad.

Our server was excellent.
Our server was excellent. She was very personable and most helpful! The crab cake and grilled watermelon salad were delicious. The cold berry soup was outstanding. We will definitely come again and recommend it to friends.

We found King Crab Oyster Bar & Grill
2 years ago and we keep coming back.
The sea food is heavenly. The staff are
angels. We always feel special when we
dine here. Do yourself a favor. Try it

We had dinner at King Crab on our way back to Toronto from Stratford. There was a friendly greeting as soon as we arrived and we were seated immediately. Our server arrived shortly after that. He explained the specials and gave us time to make our decision. We both went for a starter, then main course - I had crab cake and potato crusted trout, my partner had oysters and mahi mahi. Of the dishes, the crab cake were the pick - they were superb, although the other dishes were not far behind. And the portions were generous. We would certainly return.

A quiet patio lunch....delightful
My wife and I decided to grab a nice lunch out on the holiday Monday and we chose King Crab, as we had not dined there in a while. The patio was very comfortable and the food and service outstanding! We finished with a feature dessert, it was so good.
I was a bit surprized that there were not more guests there but it was a holiday and later in the day.

Loved the tuna steak, red
Loved the tuna steak, red snapper could have used better accompanying rice and beans. Service was detailed and prompt, which is a plus in KW area.

The food was excellent in this restaurant I love the waitress I love communicating with the chef sitting right beside him cooking it and I would go back in there in a minute there was a group of four of us

King Crab was amazing!
We had been told King Crab was good but it was better than we could have expected. We shared a crab cake to start and then my guest had steak and a half lobster and I went for the name sake dish, the King Crab platter. The King Crab was large and the best I have ever eaten.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went for dinner a few days ago, for her birthday, the food was absolutely exceptional and the service was impeccable I would recommend this restaurant to anyone

Very fast, efficient, and
Very fast, efficient, and friendly service. We felt well looked after. Fish was fresh and perfectly done. The special starter, creamed cauliflower with crawfish, was absolutely fantastic. Nice presentation. Red Lobster does not come close to King Crab - King Crab is much more upscale and much better quality.

We found the restaurant online
We found the restaurant online and were extremely please with our overall experience. We were greeted by our friendly host, seated immediately. Our waiter was attentive without being instrusive and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding! The king crab was perfectly cooked and the truffle infused mac'n'cheese was awesome! They actually had my favourite wine on the menu, which never happens. The pickerel was very good as well. We shared dessert, a chocolate, espresso raspberry creme brulee. Fabulous!!

Michael's service was outstanding. He was very welcoming and treated our family with exceptional service. Michael made sure to include our children in this special meal by suggesting the feature drink be made into a virgin cocktail for them and they were very impressed with all of the special touches that you don't typically get when you dine in a "family" restaurant. Although we spent significantly more than we normally would on a family dinner, the food and attentive service made it very memorable and we can't wait to return. I never mind spending more if I get good value for my money!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our food was fantastic, all four of us. The food is fine dining but the atmosphere when you first walk in doesn't say that. Tablecloths would make a big difference I think.

My last experience at King
My last experience at King Crab wasn't the usual amazing food and dining experience as I have come to get use to but Mr,Plouffe(sorry if i miss spelled) was more than happy to generously give me a gift card and asked for me to come in again to get the amazing experience and food that I have been use to....And wow did they ever deliver! an 11/10! Everything was perfect and what I love about this place. Well done and I will be back again and again and again.....Awesome guys! Keep up great work.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I liked everything but the shrimp in the alfredo did not come de tailed and me and my girlfriend had to pick through it and for the price of the meal they should have done that. The full lobster was great. Expensive but very nice atmosphere
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful meal and great service
Seafood, steak and appetizers were enjoyed by all. Service was very good - professional, informative, not pushy. Limited wine list but some good ones.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Salmon was perfectly prepared as usual. Loved the cherry glaze. They accomodated our request for roasted veggies instead of rice. Perfect portion size. It was a delicious lunch. The server was attentive.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
All 6 of us said we would definitely return. The food and service was excellent.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining in a cosy atmosphere..
We eat here regularly. We especially enjoy the salmon dish and the fish and chips so much so that we have yet to branch out to other menu items but plan to soon. Oh yes and the fresh warm bread is a 10 for sure.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a reliable experience
Never fails to be a good dining experience. Cozy and small, but relaxing - from the ability to park close by to the good food.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the 4th time for dinner and once for lunch for my wife and I. We were never disappointed. The food, service and friendliness, were excellent every time. Each dish we chose was excellent whether it was steak, pasta, or seafood.

We have gone twice for our Anniversary, last year we sat inside at a tall table and were able to watch our food be prepared. Very nice! This year the weather was really nice and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the great food and drinks! I had the trout - which was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Leave the kids at home!
5/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went for a pre-show dinner and since they open at 5 p.m. for dinner and we had to be out of there by 6:15, we advised our server, who made sure that we were on schedule, but not hurried, which I appreciated. We started off with the best Caesar salad I have had in ages! They informed me that they used fresh anchovies. I ordered a fillet mignon medium rare, and it was perfectly cooked and so tender! It was served with sweet potato wedges (my choice from the menu), and a medley of vegetables which were cooked just right - not too soft and not too hard. My friend had the salmon, which was nicely presented and tasty. I finished off my dinner with a cappuccino, which was presented showing the layers with the foamy top! I will go again soon!

Great night out
Food was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive and wonderful smells coming from the open kitchen
A great place to go for sea food and a great night out

I stumbled across this restaurant when my husband said he wanted fresh oysters for his 50th birthday and I was shocked to discover that no restaurants in London serve fresh oysters. A google search turned up the King Crab Oyster Bar and Grill in Kitchener so away we went with fingers crossed and without any prior knowledge or reference. Thankfully we were delighted with the ambiance, service and exceptional food. I'm still dreaming about my escargot appetizer and my husband was in oyster heaven. Thank you for making his 50th birthday dinner so memorable. We plan on taking friends there very soon.
