I always had fantastic experiences at the crab spot before. This time though the food was very disappointing; nothing like before. Mussels were old I believe as they were releasing a foul odor. Other dishes were ok. I don’t think I’ll come back here again.

Horrible experience. The restaurant had poor ventilation. When we walked in you just see a cloud of smoke. My steak was not edible at all. I had it returned to the kitchen. I refused to eat it. It was super chewy and when I turned it over it had a gross gooey film on the whole steak. They never once apologize for it, the manager on duty actually told me that the reason it’s chewy was because of the cut of the meat. It was a skirt steak. Not true. How about the gross film that was on it. They’re way of taking care of me was giving me the two drinks I ordered on the house. I will never go back there again.

Our server was very nice. However the food came out cold. I ordered crab legs and lobster tails, and it wasn’t fresh. I can tell it were frozen and just reheated or dropped in boiling water for a short period of time as some parts were still cold. I expected a better quality for the price. The bathroom was not clean.

The sodas tasted like pure seltzer. When we told the waiter he stated that’s the way the soda was. We had them take it off our bill. Juices were not an option because of the size of the glass? We had to drink water. The shrimp, salmon and crab legs were mediocre. The waiter was polite.

LOVE THIS PLACE. Been here 5 times and their food never dissappointed me. One thing I would like to suggest, their sodas are from that bar tap, so they taste old. I wish they offered can soda.

If you want anything passed drinks and apps .. don’t eat here. The food was terrible and cold. The service was slow, but the waiter was willing to remove all orders we didn’t enjoy from our check. Oh! & the bathroom was absolutely filthy!

For a Saturday night, the restaurant wasn’t super crowded, which was much appreciated because our server was attentive and our food came quickly. We ordered the crab cakes, garlic shrimp, and crab stuffed mushrooms as appetizers. The entrees were also really good. We ordered the plates that came with rice pilaf and vegetables. The seafood tasted fresh and we throughly enjoyed our meal.

Our waiter was really nice...since we we busy yapping and ordered in bits & pieces.

We ordered drinks...
No coffee & no amaretto sour 😕 & no Coke
So beer it was..

Ordered 2 appetizers (crab cake & wings) 2 entrees (snow crab pot & fire grilled shrimp, scallop, & octopus) & 1 captain's dinner for two. Way too much food for 4 people...

I'm not a sour person, so I thought that there was too much lemon in the octopus & the salad in crab cake had too much balsamic vinegar. But that's personal preference.

Excellent customer service from the gentlemen that was serving us I appreciate everything he did for me and my man. The food was good as far as taste it was just a little bit of crabs. The last time I went it was a bigger pot with more crabs ... but overall excellent place to dine at me and my man traveled a little over an hour and was pleased thank you.

The service was horrible. My friend and I made reservations and when we got there the waiter was running around serving everyone and didn’t even come up to us to ask if we have reservations or if we would like to be seated until I said hello we have reservations and then he sat us in a booth and we were about to order and the manager came up to us and said I’m sorry but this booth is for four people that I have coming at 7:30 so we were kicked out of her seat and had to get re-seated. my friend and I made reservations and when we got there the waiter was running around serving everyone and didn’t even come up to us to ask if we have reservations or if we would like to be seated until I said hello we have reservations and then he sat us in a booth and we were about to order and the manager came up to us and said I’m sorry but this booth is for four people that I have coming at 7:30 so we were kicked out of her seat and had to get receded We ordered our entrée and it took one hour to come out (without any exaggeration) and the crab meat it’s self was hard as a rock . My friend asked for a second drink of Pepsi and the waiter was serving everyone and pouring drinks for everyone and didn’t bring it to her until she had to ask him again . I tried to get the managers attention by raising my hand three times and every time he ignored me . Never in my life have I ever had such horrible service . I’m not the type of person to ever write reviews so you know I was very disappointed .

I would recommend this restaurant to my friends as a restaurant for a large party not for a dinner date. Overall it wasn't the greatest or worse experience I've had in a restuarant.

The place wasn’t particularly crowded as i anticipated for Father’s Day weekend which was a plus. The food was good except that it was Luke warm by the time we received it. The service was great. The waiter was very attentive and was very knowledgeable about the menu and any other questions we had.

The food was good, service was lacking, we were seated with no silverware and had to ask twice for silverware. When the entrees were delivered the didn’t bring out the shrimp and we had to wait for a new plate. They also knocked my fork on the floor and didn’t bring out a new one.

Went their twice. The service was excellent and the food was delish. It was nice and hot plus flavorful. I have been reading the negative reviews and was shocked. I think he was the manager dark blonde haie and glasses was on it when our water glasses got low and kept stopping by our table to make sure that we were good. Only gripe I have is you pay for a glass of wine and you only get a half of glass. Kind of pricey but you get your money's worth in food. Both times had to get to go plates. So all in all I will be going back again.
