It’s always a great time. Just sad there was no all you can eat.
Food Was Good
Cute patio, great food, great service. We enjoyed our evening
The server was so nice and compliant. Loved her!
Everything was great all the way around from customer service on down to food
Wonderful! Will go back for more great food! Staff was friendly!
Food was AMAZING and so were the drinks!!!!! We had the Mussels, Calamari, Cy’s Burger and Fries, Buffalo Wings and Snow Crab Legs with New Potatoes...EVERYTHING WAS HOT, FRESH AND PERFECTION!!! There is also a full bar - try the margarita or strawberry margarita. Our server Daniel was AWESOME!!!!!
We sat on their beautiful back patio, and we felt very safe. They are taking the CDC recommendations seriously.
One of first outings since the pandemic slow reopening. Our first time at the restaurant. Service was Great, clean, food was very filling. A real neighborhood gem. Thank you!!
King's Crab House was awesome for dinner! We sat on their patio which was quiet and adorable. Service was quick, food was great. We are definitely coming back!
The staff here were amazing, so sweet, and we will be making a tradition out of here! If you want some good priced seafood and amazing service, this is your spot. Thanks Daniel & Mitra!
We traveled from Michigan & food was worth the buck. The atmosphere was beautiful. The king crab is so filling.
Father’s Day outdoor dining. Aside from when we had on our masks, it was a pleasant atmosphere. The service was great.
Great food! A lot for the price.
Dinner was amazing! Crab legs and cakes were delicious! Would definitely recommend/ visit again.
It was nice. Waitress was such a sweetheart. Service was amazing. Food was fresh with no complaints. Will definitely recommend.
Great service and food
We made a reservation for 3:00 & the dining room did’t open til 4.... BUT- The staff who were still setting up scrambled a table together on the quaint little back patio and we proceeded to have a wonderful lunch. Great service. Great crab legs!
Service was great and food was good.
Great service, but very disappointed by the food quantity and quality.
The Cajun Garlic Seafood Boil with crab legs and shrimp for two was nothing short of amazing! Outstanding service, very cozy neighborhood restaurant with high end options.
This is our second time dinning here and once again an amazing time.
If you're looking for some no nonsense seafood in a casual atmosphere, this is the place. Kind of small, but you don't need much room to tackle some shellfish. My SO and I both had the monthly special, which included an appetizer, 1 lb of crab legs, and a desert. Very reasonably priced. Service was a bit over the top, but I think they are trying to turn the tables. Probably wouldn't recommend for large groups, but perfect for a date night or double date.
Wonderful experience! The food was excellent and the service was great! We highly recommend this place!
Great! Love the food.
Amazing service and food!!! No complaints!!!
If an 8 year old love it , you know it’s good. Me and my daughter have been here before. Food is always great and the service is awesome. Can’t wait to go back.
This place has been around forever and keeps getting better. They currently have 3 course meals that are a great value. I had a 6 piece shrimp cocktail a pound of snow crab and dessert for $36. Also not to be missed is the jumbo king crab. Mai tai is the signature drink and they have a great selection of beers on tap. Key lime pie is the perfect ending. Service is professional and friendly.
Aside from being informed by Open Table that I had not attended my reservation (in the middle of my dinner IN the restaurant) everything was very pleasant. Our server was great! Food was slightly over priced, but good nonetheless. We were seated next to a table with a child who was being kept occupied by an iPad at full volume. It sounded like an arcade. Parents were oblivious - so this is a very kid friendly place! Bring all your kids here!
I was disappointed that they didn't have steamed clams, but I get it. I think I'm the only person who likes them, as mussels are probably more popular.
Great place to celebrate a birthday! Went with the kids and everyone left happy and stuffed. Can't wait to go back.
We had a crab cake appetizer that was good and I had the Valentine's Day special of salmon and crab cake, with clam chowder. The salmon was very average, but the crab cake and chowder were good. My sister-in-law enjoyed her shrimp, but my brother's mahi mahi was tough and he sent it back for the swordfish, which came out quickly and was acceptable. The server was attentive without being overbearing. Overall, a perfectly fine place for comfort food.
Very good place with good food!
I cannot give an accurate rating because we never got a chance to eat. We had a reservation for 8:15. Arrived a little early.
We waited about 40 minutes and finally decided to leave.
We were told at least twice before leaving that the wait was a little longer.
The food looked like it may have tasted good but unfortunately I can’t say so for sure.
I booked a reservation 3 weeks in advance for 4 at 7pm. We arrived at 6:45pm and didn’t get seated until 7:45pm. The restaurant needs to have a better reservation management system.
Overall, the food and service was good.
Wow, I am a crab leg junkie and I have to say, great seafood boil!!!!!! Also, Mary was dope! Such a great woman and server!!!
I have never had the quality of customer service at any other restaurant! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly they made my entire night ! I would definitely recommend this place
Was an amazing time.
We had a reservation but still had to wait a half hour to get seated and even then at the bar because there are no tables available.
The food was not worth the price. Had king crab legs but all i got are skinny prickly legs that barely had meat in them. I’m sure i would’ve gotten better king crab legs for the same price at a different place.
