Food was cold when I received it. Server was busy and forgot some of the things we asked for (e.g., hot sauce). I felt the price on some of the brunch items (e.g., waffles) was excessive.

Went here for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. The staff was very warm and courteous. Our waitress Ashley was outstanding. Our food could not have been better. Between the two of us, my wife had the 6 oz filet and I had the filet with shrimp scampi. Both came with potatoes and asparagus. Our salads, a wedge salad and house side salad were very good. Finished up with creme brule ! Can't wait to go back

The Host Was Trash With Her Attitude, She mentioned that they don’t move people even if they go over their time limit, which as stated there is a time limit due to COVID. Addored Ragina the waitress. Was it worth driving a hour no but food and view was nice; but I can get that in a closer area.

Didn’t sit down by the water this time, my wife’s meal got entered incorrectly, so the wrong meal came up with the rest of ours. Our waitress was right on top of it, but it was still frustrating to have everyone else with their food and waiting for one. Food was outstanding as usual but it is pricey.

The River Crab is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is excellent. The service was friendly and responsive. We usually request a table near the window. Due to Covid 19 social distancing, those tables are very limited. It seemed noisier in the area where we were seated. We were disappointed not to be seated in our usual location.

FOOD WAS EXCELLENT
WE STARTED AT THE BAR AND THERE SEEM TO BE THREE BARTENDERS BUT I WAS THE ONLY ONE TO GET A DRINK. MY FRIENDS WERE NEVER APPROACHED BEFORE WE OUR TABLE WAS READY.
WELL SET UP WITH THE COVID RESTRICTIONS
SERV ICE WAS OK, SERVER NOT OVERLY FRIENDLY AND A LITTLE SLOW. I THINK MAYBE SHE HAD TOO MANY TABLES?+
OVERALL IT WAS VERY GOOD AND WE WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK.

We ordered the Seafood Trio and Coconut Shrimp for dinner- both were great. The Hot Rocks and Blue Slaw & Calamari appetizers were especially delicious! The service was fantastic. We had a beautiful evening out.

Everything was awesome except they didn't have our booth ready for us even though when they called to confirm the reservation they said they have it written down. So they put us in the bar area and we were next to a table full of four loud drunk people.

Only thing missing was the 'brie' as an appetizer. Really bummed they took it off the menu. Not everyone likes seafood choices only for appetizers.
