I missed the shaking crab the most during quarantine process so happy to see service is still amazing and food as well see you guys again soon
Ordered the prix-fixe which seemed like good value for food! The food was pretty good, appetizers were okay but still enjoyed them. The beignets were delicious. Drinks were great too. Overall good service and place wasn't crowded at all. Felt spacious and comfortable for indoor dining.
The covid procedures are pretty good.
Finally ordered our food with one server. We got the first round of food. Then a second server comes to ask if we had placed our order. Uh.... ok... so the manager comes, and he “went to check on the food” and said sorry and that the drinks are on him. We only had 2 beers.... food finally came. We had order the priciest bundle in their valentines menu. The lobster was a baby lobster. We had no potatoes as stated in the menu.
I think our 1st experience back in a restaurant could of been better. We won’t be coming back to this location.
Had the Royale shake for 2 amazing crab legs, whole lobster. Delicious catfish and amazing macaroni and cheese!
I enjoyed my birthday here
The combos are excellent
The drinks were great especially the fish bowls.
My first time there and the food was great!! Nice well cocktails as well. I will be returning back soon.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. There were different types of people there as well, from couples on dates to families spending quality time together. I would definitely return.
Experience was great. We arrived and was seated shortly after. Almost immediately we placed our order. Food was delivered and we were complete within an hour of arriving. Looking forward to the next visit.
It was okay over all ...
From the food to the service this was one of the best restaurant experience I have had. I would definitely recommend this to a friend looking for a good place to eat or a first date. Shaking crabs for the win!
The food was great. Staff was pleasant. They didn’t have a lot of food that was on the menu, but what I ordered was very tasty. I will be going back soon.
Second time going and I cant complain! Great food, good service, music & overall atmosphere.
Alaskan King Crab meal will fill you up like crazy. I'd suggest add potatoes and corn in it cuz it'll blow your mind. Good food!
It was good 👍🏽
Amazing spot! Loved the food and the staff serving staff were great as well. The host was kind enough to hold the reservation for 10mins due to being stuck in traffic. Greatly appreciated that! Valentine’s Day was almost ruined. We most definitely will return.
Amazing, food was fresh everything was amazing
The host , manager and waiter was amazing very nice people and the food was great also
IT WAS FANTASTIC! LOVED IT. GREAT EXPERIENCE! The food was delicious. Service was great. 👍
It’s really quiet on the weekdays so it’s a perfect time to go. It’s not too loud or crowded
The food service was fast,food very good and the staff friendly and polite. An overall good experience. Will return
Jasmine was an excellent observer for our party of 11. Food was great . my mom enjoyed her birthday
I had a great time my daughter that is 7 told me about this place her and her dad go twice a week
Food portions could be larger, for the price you are paying.
The food portions are small.
Shaking Crab has been one of the best moment I’ve ever experienced. The services was quick and food was very delicious. I highly recommend it to everyone.
It was really good. I think the portion sizes should be bigger for the money but you get that you pay for.
Food was good and fresh, not over steamed. The cocktails were tasty.
Amazing seafood loved it will be going abck again and again
The waiter was nice , and the food was amazingly delicious. Very satisfied
Everything was very nice !!!
Great food and the workers were nice and professional the entire time. The place itself with the decoration is very beautiful.
Depending on the day and time the restaurant can be super packed with long weights or a bunch of open seating; but even the days when there is open seating the traffic of patrons has ebs and flows.
I always enjoy my food when I go, I get full. I mainly get boil bags but I’ve heard the fried food is good as well. There are good drinks for happy hour. The servers are pleasant but, the service can be slow, more staff may be needed. If you are in the neighborhood and enjoy seafood, stop in!
Best seafood ever and we’re from Maryland! Atmosphere & Service was impeccable!
Always a good time. Great food and drinks. Friendly staff decent prices
Got there on time for 8pm reservation. Was told I had to wait 2 hrs. Original Party of 5 three showed up. Was told I would be seated as 5 but had to be out in 2 hrs. Waited 1/2 hr before waiter came over to take my
order. Order came fast. The food was good to the taste. The quantity was less than the New Jersey location allotted when I went there. Did not match the price. My order was Shrimp and Mussels. Most of the Mussels
were closed. When I told the waiter he said they were still cooked and would not even consider changing them. I won't go back there. This was a birthday celebration. No one left happy.
Went here with my two sisters for our monthly get together and we had a great time. Great staff, food, and music. A plus in my book.
Amazing food!! I would go back every time I’m on the UWS.
Shaking Crab is awesome. The food and drinks were great!
I had ana amazing time at Shaking Crab on the UWS! Food was ready quickly, service was quick and food was AMAZING! Not sure our servers name (she was the only woman working today) but everything she suggested was delicious! From the sauce to demonstrating how to crack the crab legs properly. Very enjoyable, great service and I'm definitely going back!
I loved it as always
