The only negative aspect was that the menu presented on Open Table was not available… I had my mind set on the duck, however, it was not one of the items in the current menu. The items in the current menu were largely different from the menu items on Open Table. That said, I would definitely go back and also would recommend this restaurant to others.

I Asked for a chocolate martini which they did not have on the list of drinks, however they accommodated and made one for me, it was fantastic. Will definitely make this one of our normal go to restaurants.

The crab cake Benedict was delicious, and filling. The Bloody Mary was very good and included a piece of peppered bacon that may have been the high point of an excellent meal.

We arrived on time to find an entire restaurant full of people but yet they claim they were closing at 8pm. The manager was not sorry about it he in fact blamed open table for taking our reservation. He then said they were out of everything on the menu so he couldn't seat us. We left the restaurant but waited on our car to find another place to eat. I noticed 2 other couples who went inside and were seated right away. I went back inside and asked how come they were seated and they said because there reservation was for an earlier time. I was so confused because it was long after they're reservation and we were on time for ours but was told they were out of everything on the menu and that they were closing at 8pm which they didn't do. I really feel like it was a race issue. Everyone in the restaurant was white and we were the only black couple attempting to dine here.

It's alittle pricey but nice for a special occasion. It is nice that the chef comes out and checks on the food.

My husband and I split the waffle, chicken, gravy and biscuit and the Pig Omelet. We had plenty of left overs. The pig omelet was stuffed with brisket, bacon, shallots, peppers. The biscuit was so fluffy and the gravy, well I could ate a bowl of just the gravy. The waffle was crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. We really liked the homemade whip cream with strawberries made it even more delicious. We had the mimosa flights (4 glasses) and they were unique and made with the right amount of balance of champagne and juices. The Watermelon and mango was our favorite.

Our Server - Grace was equally cheerful, gave us an overview of the specials of the day, kept our drinks full and overall attentive during our meal. We had the crab cake appetizer followed by the soup and entree. The food, in my opinion was outstanding, hot and well presented. We split a slice of Cheesecake for desert with fresh coffee. I wasn't expecting such a large crowd and a little noisier than I would have liked but overall, a great meal, great service and highly recommended.

We had invited a large party and hopefully they were satisfied. The bill for our dinner for 2 was over 150$....."big city prices for small town restaurant". Our server was excellent and tried hard to accommodate even though several items we came for were not available....i.e. oysters and onion rings. The paella (34$) had little flavor, little rice and little seafood....mussels, clams and shrimp. The "flight of pig" (@24$) was more like a "flight of piglet"...smallllll meat servings. The seafood chowder was ample but little seafood and somewhat bland. The drinks were tasty and priced nicely. We may try this restaurant again....maybe not.....would order differently and examine the online offerings more closely. The pictures/website are excellent. The ambience needs some attention....The "box" still looks like and old KFC.

Our waitress Grace was phenomenal, she was very nice, had a great attitude, very helpful, patient and accommodating. We started with the flight of the pig starter and IT WAS DELICIOUS! I had the porkchop entree while my husband the salmon entree. Everything was cooked to perfection, and it provided generous portions, needed a to-go box. I am not much of a drinker but someone who is, would definitely love this restaurant. Its a bit on the pricey side (for those wondering) but for us, it was worth it. We will definitely be back. Again, Grace was awesome!

This time was a big disappointment. First, the waitress was new and was not trained properly on basic such as what is included with each brunch entree nor did she know that Riesling was a type of wine. The service was very slow and when we got our drinks my pour of Riesling could not have been over a 3 oz pour - definitely not the 5 or 6 oz I paid. The food was lukewarm at best when we were served which tells me it had been sitting in the kitchen for a while before it was served. Also, I ordered the ham and cheese panini - when it came out it had 3 slim pieces of chicken, a sliver of ham, no cheese and loaded with mayo. Brunch for two with tip was almost $70.00 - I expected so much more from a so called high end restaurant. I will not be going back to Blue Crab & Purple Pig bistro anytime soon.

The building itself is open and industrial and still has a little of the fast food joint design features evident and needs an entry door to keep the cold out when customers enter or exit. The drinks were very tasty, but stick to the specials as they are a bit pricey. The food was excellent. For of our party had the pork chop that was delicious but dangerously close to being a little over cooked. Large portions that filled us up. One of the other two diners had prime rib (which was nearly 16 oz when the special board advertised 8 oz) and looked amazing. The last diner had the short ribs that tasted great. The chef/owner came to check on us twice, the service was pretty good but a little slow because the place was packed. Great local restaurant that we’ll definitely go back often.

The chicken and fish we ordered was delicious but the spinach they came with is very vinegary - inedible. The side of Mac and cheese was sooo good. Appetizer was adventurous but good. $100 for 2 entrees, 5 smoked bacon bites, and a side of Mac. Probably won’t return for dinner bc it’s too expensive and it’s such a limited selection. I want to go for lunch/brunch though.

I had the Short Rib Benedict, my sister had the Fried Chicken Sandwich, and my wife had the Pig omelet.. All the food was tasty, but we all agreed that the food was colder than it should be, which was surprising, because the service was really quick. The hash browns that was the included side for all 3 dishes, were creative and delicious and included both white and sweet potatoes. We will definitely planning a return trip.

We highly recommend Blue Crab not only for brunch, but also for lunch and dinner. What a joy to have this caliber restaurant available in Poquoson.

Dining area is a wide-open space with slate floors. This makes for a loud, exposed space - not quite an intimate fancy dinner. Server may have been new - didn't know what liquors the bar carried, was unfamiliar with the dishes. The table next to us received a wrong dish and tried throughout the meal to convince the waiter this was the case. The diner said the dish was fine, just not what he had ordered. The server's response was "well at least you like it!" and no attempt to fix it. At the end of their dinner she came back and did admit she gave him the wrong plate. It didn't seem that they were compensated in any way for not getting what they ordered. The food was fine. Blue crab ravioli's were mild and delicious, but could have used some peas or asparagus to brighten the taste and the look. I had the pork chop, which looked great on serving. Was a wee bit dry, but saved by the brining. Given the other choices for a fancy dinner in the area (none) this is going to be the go-to spot for a date night or celebration. I'll recommend it for that reason. If this restaurant were in a place with competition, they would have to step up their game.

When we asked about what was available for her the chef, Berry, came out to chat with us to tell her what wasn't gluten-free noting they make everything from scratch and can be 100% certain that there would be no cross-contamination. The food was wonderful, the drinks yummy, and the service equally great. I will absolutely go back and recommend it to others!
