Blue Crab Grill in Newark, Delaware is known for offering a giant menu filled with seafood options. Though much of it is seasonal, you can always count on some items at Blue Crab Grill. For example, there is the steak and cake. You get a grilled beef tenderloin and jumbo lump crab cakes.
Another standby at Blue Crab Grill is the surf and turf. This includes a five-ounce beef tenderloin steak and a five-ounce lobster tail that is served stuffed with crab imperial. The crazy jambalaya is very popular as well. It comes with crab legs, crawfish, clams, mussels, scallops, chicken, shrimp and andouille sausage.
Service was a little slow with drinks and ordering. Everyone was polite and professional. Food was just average. Dessert was amazing.
We are local to the Blue Crab and go there frequently. This time we were entertaining guests from NYC. Thought we had the restaurant decision made until they arrived and made a statement about loving seafood, which they said is VERY expensive in NYC. We immediately opened OPENTABLE and made a reservation for a late lunch at 2pm.
Even though the oysters our guest wanted were not available at that time, both were very satisfied with their crab cake luncheons. I had the Seafood Bouille and husband had a broiled seafood special.
In short, we love this place, recommend it often and go there whenever we can.
I really liked the vibe, but my food was cold (I had ordered a hot dish) and the waitress was nice but didn't see much of her/didn't check on our table very much.
We enjoyed not only the food but also an opportunity to hear the band, "Nice Like Dat"!
The Caesar salads were just so-so the mixed vegetables were crisp and delicious. My salmon on my salad was a small cut but tasty, my son’s crab cake was amazing. My husband ate his fried shrimp but didn’t rave about it at all.
The waitress was super sweet and made very good recommendations as this was our first trip. Looking to go back soon for blur crabs!
The neighborhood location makes it ideal for the working couple. The food is delicious too!
We were there Valentine's Day at an earlier seating. While the food came out fairly fast, I never felt rushed at all and they seemed to handle the reservations really well. I also appreciate that while they had special Valentine specials, you could also order off regular menu and prices were not inflated. Leanne, our server, was wonderful.
Our waitress and meal was wonderful!!!!! And will go back again!!
The lemon ricotta pancakes are amazing! They were a little discombobulated getting us seated but our waitress turned out to be lovely. The food was pretty darn good.
We frequent Blue Crab Grill as a family favorite for some of the best seafood in the area. The food and service are always excellent.
I have been to this restaurant 3 times, twice they had turtle soup, delicious. They have seafood, steak, ribs, all the best. I haven't had a bad dish yet. The service is also A+.
We were really glad we found this place! The food was amazing and so good. Only dislike was our table, however we choose to stay there. Service was good and there was a nice atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
This is our new favorite restaurant! We just moved here and we're having trouble deciding on one but this one is definitely the winner!
Nice friendly service but mediocre food. Location is in a strip mall and you can still feel it when inside the restaurant. One of our fish dishes was slightly overcooked and dry.
We have been enjoying Blue Crab grill for years. Still a top rated facility for a cozy dinner for 2 or for a party of 6. Keep up the great job.
Great food and great service. I prefer the regular lunch menu over the Sunday Brunch menu which has somewhat limited choices... (although they told me I could order off the regular menu if I wanted.)
Server was attentive and pleasant. The food came promptly as ordered and was almost too hot.
Clam bisque was very good.
Only downside, the bathroom was clean but VERY cold.
Good meal with good service as always.
Outstanding food with a nautical ambiance to set the mood. Excellent service as well as a generous portions.
Alex is a SUPERIOR server. He is awesome and makes sure you have a GREAT experience.
Four couples went to Blue Crab on my recommendation for a holiday wrap up lunheon. The food was outstanding, our waitress pleasant and most accommadating, and atmosphere perfect for a relaxing afternoon get together. They never disappoint! Everyone is looking for an excuse to do it again.
The service is always good as well as the food. The crafted Bloody Marys are exceptionally tasty.
We were seated at a temporary table near the bar. The table wobbled terribly and our waitress tried to fix it. The noise level was so bad it was hard to enjoy and our food and we did not order dessert because we could not wait to get out of the restaurant.
Food was excellent. our server was so nice and did a great job. Other servers also assisted with serving and clean up.
Local restaurants were closed for New Year's Eve so my husband suggested Blue Crab Grill. Called and discovered they were open so we drove 35 miles to eat there again. Food was delicious as it was the first time we visited. Tender clams fried in a very lite batter with a delicious side sauce. My lobster was sweet and filet perfect. Husband had prime rib cooked just right. So full we took a dessert home and ate it at midnight. Look forward to returning! Happy New Year to the friendly staff!
Food was good service was great. First time there and would definitely go back.
It was okay. Nothing spectacular.
We are regulars and always have a great time. Servers even recognize us sometimes and always make us feel welcome. Food was particularly amazing this time, I had the steak & cake and hubby had the surf & turf. Cocktails were delicious and we often start with fresh oysters. It’s a warm family friendly restaurant appropriate to celebrate special occasions or for a casual meal.
This place never disappoints! Delicious food, great portions and reasonable price.
Lunch with friends
What awesome entertainment for a Sunday. The food was fabulous as normal. The roasted red pepper soup was creamy deliciousness and the crab omelet was so good I ate the whole thing! The signature Christmas drinks were fantastic. Thanks again for an awesome dining experience
Blue Crab Grill is one of the best places around to eat. The food is always great and service is always spot on. We went for brunch and everything was delicious. I highly recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes! The bloody marys were like a meal with everything that came in it. Whenever I go for lunch, I have a tough time not ordering their seafood chef salad. It's awesome! I highly recommend this restaurant!
Great Menu options Excellent food and service ! Casual ambiance.
Waitress was very distracted, slow service,we even got help from another waitress, then she forgot to place our order so there was an extra 30 min wasted
Sooooo slow. Restaurant was not crowded on a Sunday night and it still took forever to get our food. Second time it has been this way for us. Food is very good so we went back, but 2 strikes, I'm out.
My wife and I really enjoyed our evening, especially the choice of food we had. DELICIOUS! service was great and drinks were good too! We will definitely return again!!
We had some of the best seafood available in the Chesapeake Bay Area. The fried oysters are worth the trip from almost anywhere. Food was excellent we prepared well served and a good value.
Short staffed. Waitress was not seen for quite a while after we received our food. All of our glasses were empty needing refills but we were never asked. Took a long time to get the bill as well.
We celebrated my daughter‘s birthday. And restaurant special for my daughter. However, it was still a really good time and meal.
