Enjoyed that there are many creative seafood dishes on the menu to choose from. Haven’t tried the sushi yet but nice to have that option for next time. Service was good. My shrimp pot pie was tasty and fun with a puff pastry crust. And, of course the waterfront view off the porch seating area is great.

Ehh,,, been here before, and had better meals. Disappointed this time. Service wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great and it wasn’t very busy. Both of our entrees had completely undercooked sides, asked for substitutions. There was nothing special about the meal, and any chain that serves seafood would have been as good or better.

For the first time we were disappointed. Usually our food has been terrific. However this night it was an embarrassment since we were entertaining a visiting friend. The service was very slow, the food wasn't presented well and seemed dry and tasteless, I had the Salmon, one of my favorites. Our server was the bartender, who was nice but busy, it took about 15 minutes before she asked for our drink order and then another 15-20 minutes to take our order and then some time before we got our food. However it seemed that she was the only server. Had to flag her down to get the salad that had been ordered. It is always enjoyable to come to the Crab House, it is fun and has a lot to offer in the way of comfortable and interesting surroundings. We will return and hope for a better experience next time. Thanks

As always, the food was consistently good. Fried foods are always done at the right temp so it’s never greasy. The tomato basil soup is awesom as is the she crab soup. Beautiful sunsets

We were seated right away, our server Bailey took our beverage order right away, brought our drinks quickly, took our appetizer order, I had the California roll and my husband had the chowder—we were not offered bread and butter, which we found strange because on our previous visits there that was brought out with the appetizers, when we questioned our server about it, she stated it wasn’t customary to bring it out unless the customer asked for it, she said she doesn’t like it to go to waste if not wanted, she did bring it after that, I had the king crab legs bucket, which was one of the specials, they were brought to the table without the appropriate utensils for opening them up to eat them-I had to wait for those to be brought out-approx 5 min-my husband had the ribeye which looked to be cooked as ordered. The crab legs were excellent once I was able to start eating them...

You honored my request for outdoor dining but due to the inclement weather you seated us indoors with no problems.Your staff is excellent= hostesses , waitresses and waiters. Our group appreciates the fact that you let us bring in our own birthday cake. Many restaurants do not do this and therefore we do not patronize those places. We are a group of retired teachers who get together for our birthdays. The Crab HOuse is one of our favorites. Three of our teachers actually taught one of your hostesses. Our waiter was excellent and very organized. I don't remember his name but he did a super job. My husband and I bring our family members to
the Crab House for lunch. It's the number one restaurant on their list. Thank you, Ginny= Pt. Charlotte resident.

Server was slow due to having too many tables and kitchen being backed up. Calmari was not cooked, requested a new batch and it was cooked longer. King crab was steamed too long, didn't have any moisture. Had to ask and wait for crackers to eat them. Grouper wrap was good.

We were really disappointed this trip. It was a birthday celebration. We had all had the Lobster,Lobster, Lobster several other times but this time the lobster was dry and the risotto was sticky.....big disappointment. Think the chef must've been not the regular chef, maybe the weekend...late Sunday chef.

2nd time we have eaten at the Crab House.Reallyenyoyed it the first time. But the last time there were a few disappointing things. My wife ordered a crab and avocado salad and was disappointed that it was made with imitation crab. Wonder why for the Crab House.I ordered the Crab Quesidilla which was pretty good except it could have used some compliments on the plate. (shreaded lettuce, so on)
