River Crab - St. Clair
Friday Night DelightWe visited River Crab on a Friday night in June for a Father's Day/Anniversary dinner, and really enjoyed our meal! I tried the summer sangria made with Moscato, grapes and cucumbers and it was very refreshing without being too sweet. Hubby and I shared "East meets West" appetizer with tuna and avocado--very delish! Hubby had Diver scallops and I had cold water Lobster tail. Both dinners were excellent with portion size just right. Chad, our server, was polite and energetic, he really seemed to like his job. Very nice evening!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA river runs through it!Haven't been to the River Crab in a long time and I enjoyed every minute of it. The service was impeccable, the food delicious and the view is a million dollar view of the river, boats, freighters!

Love the "on the river" setting, staff is very accommodating with requests for seating. Our waiter was a "professional". Having a drink in the bar before dinner, the two bartenders were also professional, but fun! We live out of town but will definitely be back.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food are alwaysThe service and food are always top shelf at the River Crab6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks again River Crab!

Had a really mediocre experience recently, and made note of it with the Gen Mgr, Martha who asked for another opportunity. We went back this past weekend for a quiet dinner for 2, and the dinner and service more than made up for the mediocre meal from 7 weeks ago. Mucho appreciated.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerRecently enjoyed romantic anniversary dinner at the River Crab. My beautiful wife and I have been raving about it ever since. The food was simply delectable. My wife had her dream combo of blackened salmon, crab cake, and coconut shrimp. I ordered the shrimp and scampi. The steak medallions simply melted in my mouth, perfection!!! The chocolate cake dessert with vanilla bean Ice cream, hot fudge and Heath bar crumbles is a MUST! I also had the pleasure of a wonderful wedge salad and a spicy cucumber martini, and our dinner was almost perfect. The only drawback was the young waiter forgot our shrimp cocktail, and its a bit pricy. Overall best meal I have enjoyed in years and very romantic riverside view. Thank you river crab, see to soon5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMRiver Crab...not crabbyA great resturant and has been since the time of Chuck Muer and his Fish Dynasty. Waitstaff trained in the old way...ie look out for the customer. Just a great overall experience. My wife and I have made this our resturant of choice for special events for over 20 years...the time we have lived in the Blue Water Area of Southeast Michigan.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FirstThis was my first time dining at River Crab and it will not be my last. THe food was wonderful, tastfully presented, very delicious. The server was friendly and attentive, he made you feel like your choice was on his top 10 list. We had a great view, one row in from the window.
One suggestion. I placed my reservation through your website. I didn't realize you had a special from 3 to 6 pm. When selecting the time on the site, a pop up window to annouce any specials would be beneficial. We would have taken advantage of the special if we had known. Our reservation was for 6:30. I asked the server if this would still be available as we didn't know about this until we saw the menu, but it was not.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRiver Crab - Still a favorite!My husband & I used to dine here all the time., It's been a few years since we been there, but I decided I really wanted to go there to celebrate mother's day. I was excited to see that my old favorite was still on the menu, which I ordered & it was just as delicious as I remembered. It was the Cajun Chicken Tortellini, for those who are wondering. I also had the scallop w/crab appetizer, very yummy as well. This was the first time my kids came with us and they really enjoyed their visit too, they thought the freighter going by was cool. We also had my brother & mom join us, and they loved it as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionOur waitress was very good attentive and very friendly. Highly recommend Erin W. to all my friends and family when they eat at River crab. The food was very good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionThe River Crab staff does a very nice job making a special occasion memorable, everything from the personalized menu to the seating 'with a view' to the table visit to the attentive service. Thanks!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMit felt that the waiter wasit felt that the waiter was a little aggressive; he seemed focused on getting out his spiel, rather than on picking up cues from his customer. Like we weren't interested in desert, and said so, but he continued to describe the desert specials anyway. We felt rushed to order before we had a chance to read the menu or even formulate questions we might have. For a higher priced restaurant, I would expect a more sensitive waiter. We came to eat out in a romantic setting, not to hear a pitch for menu items.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Server Justine was veryOur Server Justine was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. She made several suggestions. All in all this was a very good experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our anniversary giftThis was our anniversary gift to each other.
