Had a very nice dinner with my parents at River Crab last night. The food and service was excellent. They seemed to be understaffed as the valet was not available and drink orders took awhile as only 2 bartenders were working on a Friday night. Best restaurant in the area.
Great service & food!
As always, River Crab never disappoints.
We have not had a bad meal there! Love the food, the environment and excellent service too.
Very nice place. Restaurant was excellent, food was very good with good service. Definitely will go again.
Great service from staff very friendly and helpful with making decisions and recommendations.
We used to love dining at The River Crab, but the last 2 trips have been disappointing. Some menu items remain great while some have been subpar (luncheon fish and chips was like chewing through cardboard and the usually delicious pre-meal bread was wet and soggy).
Entire restaurant was empty except for 3 tables when we arrived - and our table was directly next to the other full tables. I get seating to make life easier for servers, but the seating at The River Crab is close, so skipping a table between guests, when it's available, would be nice.
The view was beautiful and the food was beyond delicious. Waitress, Allie was spectacular!!! I got a free dessert for my birthday. Would definitely recommend to any and everyone.
If your looking for a great place for an intimate date or an evening of celebration, this is the place. Great food, great staff and great atmosphere.
Great food and service! The fish was excellent and had a delicious sauce on it. The ceasar salad was also excellent.
Recommend for all, Great all around dinning experience.
Beautiful view, excellent food, drinks and service. Glad they are part of the Landry group.
Food was delicious, service was perfect.
We were excited for an upscale seafood dinner, but the food was nothing special and not worth the expensive prices.
Very enjoyable meal. Some of the diners had seafood other diners had beef.
Live piano music on Friday. Great atmosphere great service. Some of the appetizers were a little pricey, but in light of the Covid situation I was just so happy to be out at such a lovely venue. Desserts are great but they need to bring back the desert with the chocolate cake with the Heath bar crunch. Looking forward to our next visit
We have been customers of the River Crab for over 40 years. It remains one of the best overall restaurant for all levels of dining.
Very good food, overcharged on kids food, fixed after we brought up, small scallop portion for price.
We were celebrating a 70th birthday. Food and service is always excellent. This is our favorite restaurant. They never disappoint.
Thank you great place to visit and the food was wonderful! Service was superior!
Food was awesome and all of the staff were very friendly.
Had a great meal with friends. Heather did a fine job as our server.
We got early dinner reservations (5:15) as we were celebrating our anniversary and wanted a table by the window. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food was very good! I kinda new what to expect as we have been to several other Landry’s restaurants before so I knew I could swap out the coconut rice for something else. Just my personal preference - do not like coconut.
We went there to have a crab leg dinner for our anniversary. Once we were sat our server told us the steamer is broken and they can not sell crab legs.. Very disappointed. Chef could not find another way to prepare crab legs without a steamer?
Always a great experience!
What a great place. First time here but definitely not the last. Apple our server was beyond awesome. The food and location can’t be beat.
I would not recommend recommend this restaurant. The host was rude, the service was terrible and the filet was horribly undercooked and had to be sent back. When we walked in we were told we would have to wait 15 mi yes even though we had a reservation. And then when they went to seat us they said we could only sit at a table by the water if we paid to join the Landry’s club even though there was an open table. The waitress never refilled our water or offered us dessert and was clearly trying to rush us out. The filet I ordered medium came rare and I was asked to put the cut up meat on a side plate so they could cook it more. When it came back the rest of my meal was cold and the top of the filet was burnt. I would find another restaurant and avoid this one in the future!
The crème brulee was the best! We were celebrating our 43 wedding anniversary and the River Crab delivered a beautiful setting, perfect service, delicious food and a complementary dessert! We will return.
The view and service here are magnificent! Interesting menu with the usual selection of seafood, as well as several combination dishes and unusual offerings. Try the chowder!!
Manager Martha was stellar and the wait staff provided awesome customer service. Top notch dining experience!
Every time I have visited the River Crab i have had great food and service..
Always look forward to coming back.
Amazing menu. Great location for date night. Our server was amazing as well.
Wr ordered two dinners. The snapper was bland and overcooked. The coconut shrimp was not coconutty at all, more like fried shrimp. Our meals were disappointing this time. The service was outstanding by our server, Jane. The ambience is what keeps us coming back for the near one hour drive. We'll just order different the next time.
River Crab always has great tasting food. The red snapper I just had was not fishy or overly prepared. I actually loved the asparagus ! The waiter was attentive but not bothersome as some can be.
Drove 160 miles round trip to have lunch with great friends
Audrey was awesome and made our family's dinner absolutely perfect.
A wonderful setting for a birthday dinner on the water. Red snapper Hemingway was excellent, as well as the creme brûlée for dessert.
My husband and I had dinner at the River Crab for our anniversary and it was a very good experience. Our waitress, Apple, was very attentive and the service was great! Food was delicious and served very quickly. It is a little pricy but that is to be expected with linen tablecloths and napkins. We will definitely have dinner there again.
Beautiful atmosphere and excellent food and service.
9/12/21 it has been too long staying indoors and we didn’t want to get the virus.
Another great dining experience at the Crab! 55th Anniversary celebration was a success!
