We had the shrimp and crawfish. The portion size is good, but everything was over cooked and bland. Both the shrimp and crawfish were dry and rubbery.

The prefixed meal options were extremely over priced, $70 per person. Even for children that was the only option. Walked in expecting the location to be extremely crowded but after looking at the mandatory menu price and options I realized why it was empty. Should of just left the regular menu. The soda machine was not working properly making all the soda taste like watered down drinks. This place really disappointed tonight.

The restaurant is amazing, but for Mothers day it was a big disappointment, they had a pre fixed menu that was not worth $70 per person, the crab trio had a crab stuffed shrimp that was more breadcrumb than crabmeat and it was disgusting, on top of that they added a $56 dollar gratuity to my bill. I would have had a better time if they had their regular menu, I will never go again on a day like mothers day due to that prefixed menu.

Drinks were the best thing about this place. Especially there rumaliscious. I would not do the crab boils, for some reason it was not appetizing and this did not taste as well as I expected. If I come here next time I will only get drinks and the shrimp nachos.

Love it! At first, we were a little skeptical. However, the food server was so polite. He noticed that we were sitting, waiting for for our server.... Be our original server never appeared for his shift. However, the friendly sever who slightly resemble the musician, Tom Petty, took our order and expedited our meal. He was very pleasant. In addition to his 18% tip, we added a little extra.
Thank you! We will return! Oh the food was good too!

The manager was very VERY rude. Some of my food came out frozen after a very long wait time. The bread sticks were very hard and cold. I couldn’t believe that the manager was so rude and nasty. Watched him kick out someone with a child and gave another person with a child a hard time. Watched him yell at my waiter for asking him a question on my behalf. The best part was the waiter he was very nice, and pleasant. Other wise thumbs down for me.

Food is always good. I have not been there in several years. I think because of how the host/manager seemed grumpy and not so pleasant. Well they have a new host/manager from what I recall and same deal.
Servers, food, and drinks have always been on point. So overlook the greater and the rest works great.

Restaurant was nice. Went a bit early for dinner, around 6pm. The place gets very busy but worth the wait. I had the Alaskan king crab pot and I got my money's worth . I would go back when the weather gets warmer. Great service.

It took the waiter 20min to greet us then another 20min to tell my boyfriend they didn’t have the drink he wanted. This was after they refused to serve me a drink because I didn’t have my ID, meanwhile I’m 39years old. My boyfriend is 31 and he wasn’t asked for his ID. It was humiliating so we left without eating. The serviced looked greasy and disheveled and I will not return again.

We enjoyed the food mostly. I just don't feel that what I got for my surf and turf was worth it's price. Not that it was bad. It just wasn't anything special. I've had surf and turf that was special for the same, or less of a price. My dinner guest said basically the same about his food. He didn't think anything was wrong with the price of what he got just that the food wasn't anything special. It was good enough.

The food was good but there was something that happened I wasn't happy about and that was when we were seated the waiter said to me since I had a pay bye groupon there was a extra 30$ more and 20$ was his tip and 10 was for something I remember and that was before we ordered and since my girlfriend when to the restroom I agreed cause it was something special for her so I paid 115 for groupon and my girlfriend wanted something different that was 36$ and our drinks was 6 $ and her soup was 6$ plus tax came up 58 and didn't have a problem with none of that but the problem I had was the 30$ they to that cause I wasn't looking to pay 200$ for places that small and was seated bye the door where as everytime the door open the food get cold and it took along time to get it so if I got pay 30$ more everytime I used groupon I won't go back and I won't tell my friends

Went there for the first time with my best friend day after Valentine's day.

We had a blast!

SERVICE:
Make sure you ask for the server Mykal (pronounced mi-kale). He was personable, calm, very attentive, very patient with us and assisted us with our menu choices since we are not familiar with their menu. He made sure our glasses remained full the entire night and everything we asked for was retrieved immediately. CUSTOMER SERVICE AT IT'S BEST.

FOOD/ DRINKS:
We started off with a bottle of Moscato that went well with our meal.
For an appetizer We had to choose between the crab cakes and the crab and shrimp nachos. Mykal recommended the nachos and it was amazing!
My friend got the shrimp trio and it wasn't that great, didn't taste bad just needed better seasoning.
I had the snow crab legs. The portion was perfect and I ate EVERYTHING. I felt so sorry for the crab, it didn't stand a chance even after death (insert silly laugh). I'm thankful they gave me a bib to devour my crab legs and Mykal offered gloves to eat it. That made everything so much better, I didn't have to leave the restaurant smelling like what I ate.

I'm definitely going back and recommend that EVERYONE go there. Try going before 7pm. Afterwards it gets packed very quickly. But I'm sure if not, you'll still enjoy it with the right service included in the experience.

Food wasn't very hot but it was seasoned well. I've been to Crab spot five times, and this time they gave us the smallest lobster they had. Not happy about that or the like warm seafood. However, they're usually much better.
