    We went for AYCE crabs to celebrate my husband's birthday and instead of having the choice of two types of crabs, they only had one that night. That wasn't such a big deal but ... the price of the crabs was outrageous! In addition, for reasons unknown, they add a 20% gratuity automatically to the bill. If I receive great service, I usually tip 25%-30% but I greatly dislike being forced to pay for what that night was mediocre service. All the server did is dump 1-2 additional trays of crabs on our table when we were ready for more - she didn't even empty our bucket! I understand the utility of adding on the gratuity for groups of 6 or more but this was just my husband and me and the restaurant was not at all crowded.) Bottom line, AYCE crabs for two with no apps, no drinks (except a coke for me), and no dessert cost me $180 for this local, more-than-casual restaurant!!! If it hadn't been my husband's birthday, we would have left to go somewhere else, just on principle. Just a very disappointing and expensive evening. To be fair, the regular fare at the Crab House is usually consistently decent.

    We always have great meals at the Hilltop and the staff are all amazing! It’s loud when the band starts but the bands are always very good. Great atmosphere!
