One of our favorites to celebrate a special occasion. Wonderful selection of seafood dishes as well as ample selectin of meat/chicken options. Food is expertly prepared and delicious. Service is terrific with attentive wait staff always close at hand if needed. The view and scenery is most enjoyable as an occasional great lakes freighter will pass by on the beautiful river just outside the windows. The bar can be most enjoyable for a cocktail and easy conversation on nights when there is a piano player (Friday/Saturday).
We had immediate seating at our time of arrival which was very nice. The food was very good, had the buffet.
Always love dining here because of the view, the service, and the quality of the food!
We very much enjoyed our Sunday brunch experience at The Rive Crab. The food was excellent. The service was to notch. The Piano music really added a nice touch. We celebrated my father 87th birthday. He worked at the restaurant back in the 1950's and had lots of stories. Wonderful experience, I would highly recommend the Sunday Brunch.
Made reservations which we didn't need. Asked to be seated by a window; informed those tables were reserved but they remained empty the entire time while there. The snapper was way over cooked and very greasy with way too much seasoning. The salad was dripping in dressing/oil even after I sent it back 3 times. Waitress stated 2 sides were included with fish dinner but I was charged full price for the quinoa. It just gets to the point its not even worth complaining because I really don't think they care!
Our waiter named Jimmy was amazing. He was so patient with our party of eight. Food was great too.
Always a fantastic meal along with excellent service. The staff treats you like you are part of their family. I had the Sea Scallops and my husband had the Tournados and they were both cooked perfectly!
Fantastic dinner - delicious appetizers and entrees, wait staff professional, attentive and friendly, perfect ambiance, and amazing water views!! Personal favorite!!
Outstanding overall, as always. One of the last great places in the area for a class meal, super setting and worth the 77 miles to get there.
Easter brunch was perfect. I think it was even better than Thanksgiving buffet . I can't wait to come back again soon.
My wife, daughter and I return to this restaurant time and time again, even though we are from London, Ontario, and this requires a one and a half hour drive. We have always found the food, service to be of the highest quality. We have recommended this restaurant to friends and have accompanied them when they decided to try it. None of them ever complained about anything. Our recent visit was memorable because we were celebrating my and my wife's birthday (we were born 10 days apart) and our daughter had come down from Toronto to help us celebrate. She was very impressed and that is saying something given the huge choice of restaurants available to her in Toronto. Our server, Tony, was particularly helpful and knowledgeable both in the food and the wine department. I have always rated this restaurant highly. You can view my other detailed reviews of this restaurant under Carnivorousmale in Tripadvisor.
Everything was great. The Waiter (David) was very attentive. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
River Crab never disappoints. Food and service are excellent. Great views of the St. Clair River and ships passing by. If a quiet and relaxing dinner with the best food in the area, this is the place to go.
Service is always attentive and friendly. The food is excellent for the value. Beautiful setting on the St. Clair River adds to the relaxed and cozy atmosphere. A favorite!
Tony as always impressed our friends with his fantastic service!!
Haven't been there in many years, but my friends always tell me the food was very good. And I was not disappointed the food was delicious and I plan on going back again as soon as I can.
Take the time to enjoy the atmosphere and beautiful scenery of the St Clair River.
Daughter got new job
As usual, River Crab was an excellent overall dining experience, even in Winter when you can sit and watch the ice float down the river.
One of our favorite restaurants for dinner or their fabulous Sunday brunch. Very good food and wonderful service and the view is one of the best in the state!!
Great restaurant with a wide variety of sea food ,the service is excellent and we love the valet parking !
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.
My meal was nicely proportioned and tasted delicious. The service was 5 Star all the way. Arrived at the restaurant 5 minutes before reservation time and seated immediately. Lovely view of the whole restaurant. Lori our sever was prompt and knowledgeable. My date enjoyed the night, Thank you
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.
service was very good,the view was beautiful and the food was excellent
ALWAYS GREAT FOOD & SERVICE. UPDATES IN THE FACILITY ARE WONDERFUL.
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.
Great restaurant with wonderful food and service and has just been updated with new bathrooms
Made reservations for our anniversary. So fun to see a Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. M... across the top of the menu. We really enjoyed the meal — I can highly recommend the Parmesan crusted red snapper — as well as the location and ambience.
Ate a the restaurant for my birthday. Loved the food and service was impeccable.
Food was very good! Tony our server was wonderful and knowledgeable. Tried a new cocktail and wasn't disappointed. Will come back soon.
King Crab Legs are my favorite. Just started the Keto Diet, and they are on the list and on the menu...fabulous!
Management is always around making sure your order is perfect and to ensure the atmosphere and needs of all guests.
Martha is the best; she remembers everyone's name and treats everyone like family.
We have been to River Crab about a year or 2 ago and we were very happy with our meal. We came in with the same couple we were with at that time Saturday night but this time very disappointed. We took a special trip over from Sarnia Ontario and looking so forward to it.
We found the food portions small I ordered filet mignon 8oz cooked medium rare it was just OK and I know that cut of meat is very lean and my sister in law had the 6oz, mine looked to be the same size. It just did not look like much on my plate, a few asparagus spears and smashed potatoes was it. It seemed that everything else was extra the salad I thought when we were there last was included with the meal or for a little extra charge if you didnt want salad you could add a soup. I was happy with my appetizer the east meets west was excellent and gave me a generous serving of tuna it pretty much ended there. My husband had the Alaskan King Crab for $58 he was disappointed the legs were small had to fight to get the meat out and seemed not the freshest and I realize they are shipped but thought they were maybe sitting in a freezer too long. My brother in law had the surf and turf he said the beef was just OK not spectacular the lobster was good and lots of meat. My sister-in-law said her filet seemed a little tough cooked to her liking but again not great.
We could of had an over the top meal at a restaurant at home and money left over for what we paid, $160 U.S. and we have to pay extra for exchange on the currency. I realize that's not your problem but we were disappointed with our dinner to go back now will not be at the top of our list as before we were expecting such a treat.
Our waiter was the bright spot very friendly and accommodating. Would of loved to experience the patio in the summer with the great view on the water it is a nice spot there.
You can't beat the view here and the food is top-notched! Great service and a complimentary dessert for my birthday!
Rhonda our waitress was fabulous!! Food delicious!! Martha, the manager had a wonderful chat with us to check on how everything was.
Great Sunday Brunch. Food was not hot enough, but still very tasty. Watching the ducks in the water was very enjoyable!
We really enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding thanks to Erica. The view of the river is great from the dining room! The Sunday brunch is fantastic! The Manager Martha always makes every effort to ensure that your dining experience is great. The menu has something for everyone and very reasonably priced.
First time at the restaurant and we loved it. We will return soon.
