Alaskan King Crab Legs (Jumbo)
1, 1/2 lb
Not a good experience for the value. Ordered a combo of snow crabs legs and 1/2 slab of ribs. Substituted the snow that came with the ribs and struggled to eat both. Ribs were not good. King crab leg shells were soft. So over steamed. Waiter asked how the food was to which I answered … just okay. You could clearly see I only ate one leg and 1 1/2 ribs. Ordered a 1/2 Ib of snow to see if it would be better and so I’d not leave hungry. Did not receive any consideration of a discount on the bill. Won’t be back.
Great time! Beautiful ambiance! Good Food!
Amazing service! My cup of water was refilled promptly about ten times. The food was absolutely amazing. We got mussels, clam shower, and shrimp and kind crab Louisiana style boil. Highly recommend!!
Excellent service! Food is delicious.
Great deal on some good seafood! Would definitely return.
We made a reservation for outside but when we arrived they said there were no outdoor tables available. We expressed that we really wanted to sit outside and they made it happen. Thanks!
The food was very good. However, the service was not. Our reservations were at 8pm and we did not get our food until 9:15 pm. We watched as everyone get their food, be checked upon, etc before we did (even people who was seated well after us). I truly hate to think that it was because of our race we did not get the same treatment. It was my boyfriend's birthday and we really love seafood. We both were looking forward to trying the delicious menu but the poor service truly soured the experience.
Food was awesome! Love this place. Staff was attentive and personable.
The food was quite delicious and there was plenty of it. I think the only thing that makes this restaurant less than 5 stars is the food presentation and ambiance - those items were just average. But of course delicious food is what makes us return and they had that pegged, so we will be back.
My Fiance and I Loooved the restaurant. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was outstanding. The owners made sure we were fine and our server Katie was absolutely wonderful.
The crab wasn’t the most high quality but we really loved this place and will be back.
Wow! We were visiting from out of town, I found this place via OpenTable so we weren’t sure what to expect. King Crab is the best “hole in the wall” type of place we could’ve dreamed of. The vibes were perfect, the food was outstanding & the service was top notch. Also it should be mentioned that this was the best and most affordable dinner we’ve ever had. We’re pretty sure we will be returning everytime we come back to Chicago. Could not recommend enough!!!
The snow crab were small and the server keep handling the water pitcher putting her hands where the water is poured out. So we didn’t feel comfortable drinking the glass of water that she prepared table side
Overall experience was awesome and I recommend the restaurant and food
Excellent place to eat. Service was quick, and friendly. Food was delicious (had the king crab)! Would definitely eat here again!
Awesome. The service was outstanding
Outstanding service, outstanding food, great atmosphere, loved it!
Great place to eat. Found it via other people’s reviews and happy that we did. Great food and great restaurant.
It was a great place to celebrate birthdays, the food was wonderful the waitresses and staff were great very attentive and making sure all was well. Definitely going to go back!
Food is amazing. Jordan is wonderful and is such a pleasure. We will definitely come back!
Didn’t really do much to make us feel special on our anniversary, but I guess everything else was good.
My Boyfriend and I came to Chicago for a much needed get away. I always look for great food or experiences. The food was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the music! I couldn’t stop singing. It was a beautiful experience!
We really enjoyed our meal- Delicious food, very good service and a very inviting ambience.
The food and drinks were great. Our server was prompt and attentive. I would definitely come again!
I had to chase my server all night. I had to get up for several items from the time I got there until I left.
This would’ve been okay if I wan at a family members house. By the time I left, I felt like a staff member
The service was fantastic. However, the crab legs had a distinctive fishy smell.
Unattentative, and flavorless
Had friends from Colorado in town and wanted seafood for dinner. Stayed with them in Lincoln Park, we live farther out in the suburbs, to be nearer downtown. First time dining here and everything was above expectations. Would absolutely return when in the area again. Thanks
I've been a fan of King Crab since the 90's and every time I go, my friends and I have a wonderful time.
Service was excellent, sat on the patio. But the crab legs were over steamed so it was difficult to get the meat out. Don't think we will go back.
Great combos of excellent seafood. Spices enhanced seafood without overpowering. Good microbrews also complemented the seafood.
Great for a date or with kids for casual dining experience.
A good number of great items on the menue Never had a bad meal there
Food was great until the crab/lobster bowl there was to much garlic and butter unable to hold .
The food was great and the portions were big. The service was excellent!
Just an overall amazing experience
We absolutely LOVE this place! Drinks are good food is GREAT! This is our secret date spot! It was my husband’s birthday he definitely enjoyed his night. We love this spot
It was very good the fool was awesome the Abbey's was great the service was awesome the drinks were fair but overall great I missed the all you can eat king crab though
Great food and a great place.
My friends and I wanted to have seafood for our Friday night outing and came across this restaraunt on open table. The food was really good except for the corn on the Cobb. It tasted like it was either spoiled or cooked in buttermilk. That was the least favorite from our meal. Other than that, the v drinks was good, appetizers, & the service.
Great atmosphere! The food was good. The service was attentive and speedy. It is a fairly intimate dining space but it wasn’t too loud. I could hear my date clearly but I could also tell everyone else was having a great time as well.
