    The food was good, but it is certainly bar first and restaurant second. It is entirely too loud the way it is set up. Might go back for lunch but dinner is out.

    We visited this restaurant for a late lunch/early dinner at 4:30pm CST; the place was empty, which was nice. Attentive wait staff, fresh seafood, good selection of menu items. I got the Full Monty Spicy boil, and it was genuinely spicy and delicious!

    Our waitress was very attentive without being smothering. She went our of her way to make sure everything was to our liking. The food was amazing and the prices were very reasonable. Great atmosphere and great music. My husband is very picky and hard to please when it comes to restaurants and he had nothing but good things to say. You have to try the seafood trio. Everything you expect plus more.

    My 1st experience at the Blu Crab was "OK". It didn't blow me away nor was it disappointing. A couple of things to note. I had a beer at the bar prior to dinner. Wanted to add that to dinner tab. Bartender said ok but maitre d/mgr rang it up anyway. I guess she didn't trust me 😁. Secondly, Gumbo was not great. Heavy tomato taste and not enough rice (I'm a born,bred New Orleanian! so I've had 1 or 2 bowls in my lifetime). Just saying....Also, the "Cajun spice" was just cayenne pepper! Besides that, experience was not bad at all. Might be back.

    Outstanding food, only complaint is our waitress pushed dessert SO hard that it became incredibly annoying. When we were welcomed and every time we got a refill she would push it. Then when we asked for the bill she basically said no you have to order dessert. I was really uncomfortable, we were stuffed and said many times we would pass. We had a nice seafood fondue and 2 huge entrees. It tasted like seafood I've had in Hawaii or Florida, amazingly fresh and well prepared. I'd recommend this place and go back for sure.

    For a restaurant above the mid-point on the price chain, the service and atmosphere were disappointing. The food was good but not good enough to make up for the service and ambiance shortcomings it would take to justify the pricing. The waitress was attentive enough but appeared disinterested and "going through the motions" even though it was virtually empty inside. It was quiet and clean but I'm not sure how I would classify the venue since nothing really stood out.

    We were first-time visitors to Blu Crab. It was recommended by a neighbor and it seems to be a neighborhood favorite as the hostess recognized most of the people who entered. We ordered sea bass and baked warm-water lobster. The sea bass got rave reviews; the lobster was a bit overdone and rubbery but with good flavor. All of the side dishes were delicious and the dessert portions were large and tasty. We were fans on the half-price wine selections for that evening and got a great bottle of Chardonnay at a very reasonable cost. Really excellent, friendly service too.

    I feel like TX doesn't have enough seafood restaurants so I am happy we found this place. The grilled salmon was excellent as well as the sea bass. The calamari appetizer was beautifully prepared and not rubbery. The vanilla mousse cheesecake I could have passed on. Wasn't worth the calories.

    The food and service were good; but the ambience did not measure up to the prices. Based upon the menu and prices; we reserved a table for our anniversary. There were no seats in the noisy main part of the restaurant. We ended up having to sit at a bar table in the back where it was quieter, but uncomfortable and not the least bit romantic. While the prices would lead you to believe that this may be a good restaurant for special dinners; it is not. It is an everyday restaurant with good food.

  • Friday night at The Blu Crab
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/27/2014
    We had made on online reservation at 7:00pm and arrived at 6:50pm. We were quickly seated in a booth. The room is open like many strip center restaurants or cafes with a bar down one wall. It's not a pretentious restaurant at all but the pricing seems to be just a tad. The wait person was prompt, friendly with a huge smile to make you feel welcomed. We ordered the crab claws as an appetizer and they were delicious. I had the grilled seafood medley with two sides which are not included. My wife had the fried oysters which were about as good as you can get anywhere. If they were not so unhealthy I’d have eaten two dozen. Over all it was not a bad evening and we will return again.

    We try to avoid chains so picked this place out for the 28th wedding anniversary dinner & it was hit! Started with jumbo shrimp cocktail (8 large shrimp total--yum)! Followed that with soft taco & salad only to find out that the salads are HUGE & very tasty--did not want to leave a bite. Tacos were good/messy, presented very nicely. You would think after all of that, we'd be stuffed (oh yeah, and did I mention Lagunitas on tap? Or smooth frozen margaritas?) Well, no, we had to go ahead and order the bread pudding for dessert, reassuring ourselves that we'd only have a bite & take the rest home...famous last words. We devoured it all...all very tasty; wonderful hostess & waitress. Tastefully decorated. We'll be back!

    We were very pleased with the food...it was excellent. unfortunately our waitress was also the bar tender. Since she was doing double duty she was unable to provide much service. had to go up to the bar to get a glass of wine. we don't blame her but the management for not having enough servers. dining out should not only include excellent food but also excellent service. hope management gets this review and improve on the service aspect. food would be hard to improve on!!

    We had a great server that kinda made up for a coupke of rough spots along the way. The guy that delivered our food was so rude it was unbelievable. My fondue had HUGE chunks of red onion that killed the flavor of anything else in the dish. My shrimp werent fully cooked. My moms food came out cold and had to be sent back. Overall besides the food I would probably go back just because of the waitress.
