The scallop appetizer was delicious but the crab cake was horrible. There was more than one piece of shell in every bite so I was unable to eat it. We ate between the Christmas and New Year holiday so the lunch was very busy but our server tried his best to keep up. I will try it one more time but would NEVER get or even recommend the crab cake to anyone.

We arrived early and ended up finding bar seating which was fine. We were lucky to be waited on by Megan, who was very attentive even though it was a Friday Night and very busy, she kept up with everything timely without rushing us.

Food was sub par for a seafood restaurant. Crab cake was full of shells, too much filler. Calamari had no taste. Just dipped in flour and fried. Crab dip was too much cheese. Not enough crab meat for the price.

The food was okay, nothing special and the service was barely okay, again, nothing special. It is very noisy and difficult to hear the people opposite at the table. It was my sister-in-laws birthday and we indicated that when we made the reservation. They stuck a candle in the dessert we ordered from the case in the front of the restaurant. We had to go see them...no dessert menu

Very pleased with our first time at Conrad's. We waited in the bar until the rest of our party arrived. Happy to snack on some popcorn with our drinks and again at our table. The crabs were outstanding. Best we've had in years. And I was very happy to see such a large dessert case! Worth the drive from the other side of the county! Free valet parking was a nice touch too!

This place is definitely a show and tell restaurant! This restaurant is top-notch for eating crabs, as well as fine dining dishes! This place is actually beautiful! Only downfall is lack of adequate parking... We're not going to focus on that yet! I arrived and was greeted by two very pleasant young ladies while I waited 4 my gf to arrive. Meanwhile I just sat there and just checked out all of the decor and everything visually put in place to make the restaurant comfortable for all.

The decor in the lobby, the hallway, the bar area, the dining room, the bakery is well as the bathroom are all on point!
I literally checked out everything before being seated and was very impressed! I even visit the Ladies Room twice and it was just as clean the second time as the first time, that's very important! A lot of times at places that sell crabs, you can't always get that hourly Spotless Cleaning, but apparently this restaurant can and they did! Our waitress Lisa, was awesome! She walks so fast that I thought she had skates on! If you ask for something right now by the time you finish your sentence she's back with it! She was so fast and efficient I was very pleased, because I was very hungry!

The menu is very enticing. They have a dinner menu, happy hour menu and the menu w the specials of the day. I ordered wings, caesar salad, and a half dozen of medium male crabs. You got to pay to play! It's totally worth it.
We received our food and our crabs in a less amount of time then quoted by Lisa! That made us very very happy! Today was my first visit to this restaurant, and I'm very impressed, and looking forward to returning back!

Our birthday celebration with our family was great thanks to the good service, food, crabs and drinks. It was all worth every penny, not too expensive, and very accommodating to our request! Couldn't have ask for a better night out.... :)
Can't wait to do it again with others....

I was a little disappointed in the overall experience of the restaurant . We went as a family for the first time to celebrate a special occasion for our father . The waiter we had was terrible , took forever to bring the drinks ( non- alcoholic ) and after food arrived , never came back to check to see if we needed refills. Also , had to ask for certain condiments that should have came with the meal ( cocktail sauce for shrimp , ketchup for fries ) , also took a long time to bring ( food was getting cold )
. I ordered the seafood platter , all was good except for the fish ( undercooked ) . Since it was all of our first time there , none of us were that impressed . I wont be going back any time soon

The food was ok. Crabs were hallow n a little over cooked. The hostess was RUDE for the 2nd time. I personally feel like they were rather discriminatory based on my race. I have spent lots of money here and in my last 2 experiences its been the same. Some of the waitresses are amazing but you gotta get passed the rude hostesses.

We have wanted to try this place for awhile passing by it a lot. Once we decided to go here we were extremely disappointed including in the price for what you paid for items. I got shrimp (nothing special about them) with fries and that was $18.99. For 5 shrimp. I could pay that for a bag of 30 plus. My boyfriend got clam and noodles and the clam had a weird texture to it and tasted disgusting. It was a $60 meal with an appetizer and we were still hungry after we left. The only reason we ate all of our food was because we were just that hungry. Would no recommend this to anyone.

Although I usually don't like to make reservations this is almost a must at Conrad's at least on the weekend, they are popular. This may account for my only real complaint, they were too fast/efficient. We arrived and were promptly seated and received our drink order in short order. We then chose an appetizer and our meal which included a salad. Well the salad came out first and then two minutes later the appetizer came out and then two minutes later the meal came out. Its a little difficult to go through the motions of a savoring ones meal and time together with all of your food being pushed on you at once. Although our waiter was not pushy the general feel was to get them fed and get them out so we can get someone else in. Overall our meal was very good and filling. Our appetizer, a crab and pretzel dip was a bit misleading (in our minds). We envisioned a crab dip with cut up soft pretzels on the side for dipping, what we received was a dish with sliced soft pretzels covered with crab dip. It was ok but not great. Also when we received this they did not bring small plates as would be usual, I guess because our main dishes were coming out right behind this.

I really love Conrad's seafood however not tonight. The crab cakes were mostly filler, not enough crab meat. Fries were very good & slaw was ok. Our waiter was very slow on things I thought he should ask us if we wanted, such as ketchup for our fries & sweetener for the iced tea. He also took a long time to get that ketchup to the table. So I was a little disappointed on this visit.
