I had a great dinning experience for Valentines Day. Our food was delicious and the service attentive. My frustration is that not even 24 hours later I am already receiving spam emails from the restaurant that I never agreed to or want. OT and River Crab suck for that.

The River Crab is our Number one restaurant and has been for about 40 years. The service and food is always excellent if perhaps, a bit over priced in my estimation. That being said, the price is worth the service, ambiance and quality of food. Be it a special occasion or just a quick drink and snack this is the place. Dress formally or casually, you won't feel out of place and you will enjoy the experience. We have never had a bad one.

Good food, good service, great atmosphere. Went for lunch and it was delicious. Wanda the GM assisted us in setting up our reservations for their superb Easter brunch.

We have been to the River Crab a number of times over the years. The food seems to get better and better. Even at night in the winter, sitting at a window table watching the ice float down the St. Clair River is a treat. In the summer, watching the river traffic can be very entertaining. Highly recommend it.

Always a pleasant meal. The food is great. The servers are friendly, but not excessively so, and efficient. Service was surprisingly fast for this type of restaurant but if you want to linger there is no pressure at all to move along. We don't eat here often because it's a pretty long drive and is a little pricy, but this is one of our top 2 special occasion restaurants.
