    I chose Stoned Crab because of the lovely dining area I saw on the net. It was a special occasion, our friend's anniversary dinner. We "dressed up" for the occasion but were seated in a wooden booth, not lovely dining room. I mentioned to the server that this was a special occasion and that I wondered where the lovely dining area was and I was told that was opened only when necessary, mostly for overflow of customers. We had a so-so dinner and the server waited until we were almost finished with our meal before asking if everything was ok. No, I would not recommend this place to anyone nor will I go back. We don't mind the cost when the meal and ambience is worth it. This was NOT worth the cost for such a disappointing evening.

    Whenever my husband and I are hungry for pure seafood, our first choice is the Stoned Crab. Their broiled combination seafood, which includes shrimp, scallops, white fish, crab cake and 1/2 lobster tail, is delicious and well priced at $28.95. It includes a salad, starch and fresh vegetable.....it's always excellent!

    We typically go here for a special occasion. This time was my birthday and in a week, maybe we'll join Stoned Crab for our anniversary. If we lived closer I could see us eating here more often and trying the lunch menu. The food is always good, service is friendly and he prices are reasonable. Looking forward to the next time.

    Dinner for our 45th wedding anniversary at the Stoned Crab was exceptional. Have eaten at this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the food. The service was friendly, timely and unobtrusive. The portions are generous and the quality of preparations indicate a good understanding of quality dining. Pricing was fair and the relaxed atmosphere contributed to a memorable night.

    Felt the menu was ordinary for the price of the meals. My meal of NY Strip was $28 and added a side of scallops. Both had nothing special to them asked for medium rare and came out medium to medium well. Don't mind paying for a great meal but this was not.

    We celebrated family birthdays at Stoned Crab on July 8, 2014. The restaurant is filled with booths in dark wood. We were seated quickly and our birthday guests were offered a glass of champagne, which they declined. I would have preferred a little cupcake at the end of the meal instead. We ordered 2 appetizers to start, calamari and crab tots which were ok. The house salads were pretty plain. Our entrees of salmon, seafood combo and seafood scampi were good, but there was nothing special about them that supported the higher than average cost. Bread served with the meal was dry as a desert. So overall my guests rated the meals average and the cost overpriced for the area.

    My wife order the scallops expecting to see nice size sea scallops, instead she received over size bay scallops. Didn't care for the way your chef makes his 1/2 lobster tail. Prefer the meat to be sitting on top of the shell, instead of being broiled in the shell. Waitress (284 Marie)was a little to chatty with her personal dinning experiences. I brought my son and daughter out to celebrate their birthday and we don't get to see each other that much and felt she was cutting into our time together.

    Although our food was good, I was not very impressed with my filet mignon. I requested it be cooked medium, which could be a risk, but the meat was not tender and was even a bit difficult to cut. At that price, I expected it to be better.

    To us, this is one of those restaurants that you go to for a special occasion but would be awesome for a regular weekend meal. Great food, comfortable atmosphere, nice wait staff. We've only been here twice so far(usually we're looking for something quick and closer to home) but we've had the twin lobster tails both times and they were cooked perfectly. Melt in your mouth goodness and not chewy at all. I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Our friends had the broiled combination and they too said it was super good.

    Raw oysters, that is. They were delicious!! Tender, sweet & succulent. I'd go back for the raw oysters alone. Lobster tail, king crab legs, prime rib and crab cakes were our entrees of choice, all very delicious. A tad on the expensive end of the Lehigh Valley restaurant spectrum, but scrumptious despite the cost. Our server Nick, was wonderful. Joking and laughing along with us, ignoring us when appropriate and doting when needed. Overall, our Mothers Day Brunch experience was a good one. I would note, though, the cocktails at the beginning of our meal were quite under par for such an establishment. Watered down and underwhelming. Quite disappointing.

    This was not our first visit to the Stoned Crab in Macungie. We decided to celebrate Mother's Day with three generations in attendance on the Saturday evening before Mother's Day. Although we dined early, there was a good crowd celebrating the special occasion, so the noise level was higher than normal, but still low enough to allow conversation at the table. As always, the food was great! Two of our members ordered from the very affordable Early Bird Special menu while the rest ordered from the regular dinner menu. Known for their seafood, there were still a number on non-seafood choices. Everything was prepared to our liking. The servings were large enough to make dessert an option.

    There were 4 of us for dinner. We were promptly seated in the upstairs dinning room; tables were a little small for the amount of plates, glasses etc. and were too close together for privacy. Both the crabcakes & steak were very good as was the escargot and shrimp coctail. Lamb chops were ok but not great. Waitress wasn't sure about the price to add crab meat to the lamb chops which turned out to be less $ and less crab than she thougt. The mushroom rizzonto that accompanied the lamb was excellent as were the stuffed twice baked potatos. Price was reasonable, 3 appetizers, several drinks & 4 entress for $200. Portions were more than large enough. We were too full for dessert. Nice selection of wines by the bottle and glass.

    We have been to this restaurant four times and it keeps getting better all the time! We have changed up our dinner choices each time. Have yet to experience any food item that didn't exceed our expectations. So far, we have had: Appetizers: crab mac n cheese, crab puffs, raw oysters. Salads: The House Balsamic dressing is out of this world! Entrees: Stuffed flounder. Broiled seafood, crab au gratin, lobster tails, seafood scampi. Havent had dessert-->> our bellies were too stuffed with dinner!

    First time diners. Fried Calamari was very good as were the Caesar's Salads. However, my wife's Pan Seared Scallops were a bit overcooked and inconsistently seared with no sear at all on two. My Baked Flounder was cooked nicely, only to be marred by an overly salty sauce. Nothing was bad enough to complain about so we'll likely go back but with lowered expectations - probably do burgers and apps as at the entree prices charged, we expected better. Nice atmosphere and professional staff.

    We had entire upstairs area by ourselves for 20 -25 min. Placed drink order and appetizers at same time. Drinks were prompt appetizers not. had to ask for bread, it was not offered and brought out after appetizers. Our main entrees arrived 1 1/2 hours into our dinner! The waitress apologized citing "the kitchen got slammed" which is hard to believe as the restaurant was not crowded nor the parking lot 1/4 full The stuffed flounder was thin dry rubbery and tasteless! Over cooked and not convinced it was flounder. Couldn't find a flaky piece of fish anywhereThe stuffed crab had extremely strong taste. My daughter couldn't finish more than three bites. Expensive night out for a bust of a birthday dinner. Will not be returning

    Been here many times in the past six months. Ask for a table on the 2nd floor, which is much quieter and more romantic than the first floor. The first floor has a vibrant bar and tends to be noisier and more casual. The prices are on the high side, so a second floor table will make you feel as though it was worth the price. Delicious seafood.....well worth splurging on!
