Diner Reviews
  • "If you're wanting a good seafood place and like Cajun, this is a great place to go."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • " 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! "

  • "I was recommended this restaurant buy a older gentleman at the Rangers game. I came from red oak Texas to try this place out. I love the atmosphere the food was straight alcoholic drinks were good. I would indeed come again and or recommend friends and family. I also put it on my social network"

  • "The service was less than attentive. Noise level was extremely loud; concrete floors and no baffling of any sort. The food was ok, not exceptional as we had been led to believe. Overall, it was a disappointing experience. We may give it one more try, but not for awhile."

  • "Nice experience, will definitely go back. Great good and drinks. Seems like a good spot for happy hour "

  • "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!!"

  • "My favorite restaurant in the area!! We eat there at least once a month. I've tried every chef creation and they are all super yummy!! My most fav is when they have prawn and grits on the specials menu. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm"

  • "First time here and I wasn't disappointed. I made reservations via open table from the website link. Surprising not crowded on a Saturday night, before Mother's Day. Service was friendly and attentive from our waitress, Melissa. Food / Drink was spot on! Overall, a very good experience and I would go back and or refer a friend or two or three about the location. "

  • "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."

  • "My husband and I had dinner here and sat out on the patio. The restaurant has a very cool layout and a lot of seafood choices on the menu. We had the seafood fondue as an appetizer and it was delicious! For dinner we had some of the tacos and they were okay but I probably wouldn't order them again. Overall food and service was good."

  • "The Seafood was phenomenal, the service fantastic. Our order was presented in Michelin style format, the presentation was fantastic, the portions perfect. All at an affordable cost! We will definitely be back on a regular basis!"

  • "The restaurant was empty. Service slow. Oysters undercooked. Shrimp over fried. Smoking on patio and with the doors open made the bad experience even worse with the cigarette smoke wafting in through the restaurant. "

  • "Waitress delivered the wrong drinks, then she convinced is that a certain appetizer was crab cakes, so we ordered 2. Turned out it was crawfish pies, not even close. Then when we got the check, it had both sets of drinks in it. The manager told us she was going to take the "crab cakes" off the bl, but did not. Bad all around experience."

  • "This was a very nice relaxing restaurant with good food. The wine was very affordable. They could cut the portion sizes and reduce prices since the portions were too large and the prices a little pricey."

  • "Amazing place! We will be making it one of our usual stops!!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We enjoyed this place, however, a little disspointed in setting the reservation the question was asked, Is this your first time at this establishment. I answered yes. Also asked for a note to the resteraunt which I wrote, Anniversary dinner. If the resteraunt received this information they did nothing to acknowledge this. We still enjoyed ourselves just not sure why this information was requested during the reservation."

  • "I only they didn't have "Bar" in the name! This casual restaurant without a doubt had the innovative menu and quality of seafood that you would expect to find in the high-end names in town but the name was a little off-putting. My wife loves seafood and I wanted someplace different for valentines day. I looked at reviews for all of the "regular" places and Blu Crab was very well recommended so we gave it a try. Food was GREAT, service on this hectic day was very personal and attentive. You cannot go wrong eating here."

  • "When we arrived, we were greeted promptly and the table was available and ready for us. The wine list was very thorough, and the food choices were plentiful. The quantity of food was priced very reasonably and satisfying for our appetites. The food was fresh, tasty, and appetizing. The service was attentive, friendly, and quite pleasant. The Blu Crab is definitely on my list for future dining experiences!"

  • "Blu Crab has plenty of seafood choices along with a decent selection of other dishes and a big drink menu. On the positive, my boiled seafood combo meal was all fresh and cooked properly and my wife's steak was to her liking. Now the bad- I ordered my combo "spicy" which on their menu is medium. I eat spicy food a lot, but it was nearly too much for me. The worst thing was the desert, a cheesecake that was so overwhelming with vanilla we couldn't eat it. The service and ambiance was fine but not on par with most other restaurants at this price point. Blu Crab is the place to go if you want good boiled crab, shrimp and lobster, but at its price point it's not competitive with other places like Papadeaux or Rockfish for decor or service."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "This is a great seafood spot. It's in a strip mall type setup but don't let that fool you. The food here is really good. They have a nice assortment of fish and sides plus good drinks. The seafood boil is very spicy if you don't get the mild. My wife had to return hers after picking the next spice level up from mild. I can't imagine what the hottest one tastes like. This place is a good mix of boiling crab and pappadeaux's menus. Although the food is not quite up there for what those restaurants specialize in, it still is good. We would definitely go back."

  • "Very nice place with a menu that will not break the bank. Many seafood choices and others for non seafood lovers. We will be back."
