This was a very unusual, uncomfortable and thankfully short lived experience. We were there for a business dinner with clients. We had not even been asked for drinks yet when we were approached by one of the employees who asked that the bill would need to be paid in cash. Regardless of our response that this would not be possible as we explained we had to use our company credit card, this same employee insisted on us paying cash. We decided to leave and have dinner elsewhere. Very strange.

It wasted what I thought and it wasn’t as bad as the reviews either. Crab boil was good though. So I’ll give it a 3 star. But I probably won’t go back.

The Crab Spot was out of a majority of their seafood. They did not have shrimp, salmon and other various seafood, which I think is totally unacceptable for a seafood restaurant. We were not informed of this upon arrival, but was informed when we ordered. Our waiter also appeared to have a bit of an attitude. We asked for the manager and after talking to her about our dissatisfaction, she gave us a discount. I have been to the Crab Spot several times and they are always out of something. I’m sure if I will ever return.

Our order took almost an hour to receive. The seafood boils were not seasoned. It tasted as if everything was cooked separately and the Jazz It Up sauce added upon packaging. Just Bland!!! The cocktails were loaded with ice. Furthermore, the air conditioning was not cooling. We had to fan all during dinner.

The person help us pointed to the price when l asked him about some items on the menu. I had to let him know that the if l am requesting a additional entree l can pay for fit. I have never been to a restaurant and request two entrees and the waitress point out the price too me. He was rude and was overbearing. When l paid for myself and my guest he again point to the price of the total bill.

I love the food but the service is slow when you and someone order together you expect to get served together! Why should one guest get served while the next person watch you eat?

Food wasn't the best, but it was ok.. Service could have been a little better, Server bought me the wrong drink and cold corn, not the mention my rice was terrible. The saving grace was my fish and the band.

We were seated at 12:00am.
There was maybe 4 other tables with guests. It took the waiter 15 minutes to address us.
At 12:30am I waved him over for drinks, he stopped by and said that he’d be right back with waters and to take our order.
At 12:50am we decided to go somewhere else..

We have so much fun everyone we go. The DJ is live and interactive. Love it! It's hit and miss with the band at times... But the DJ is everything! The food is hit and miss as well. My steak was cooked a little too hard this time but it was tasty and the food temperature was slightly warm.
We always like to sit in the front close to the dance floor so it's expected to be LOUD.

The service was horrible. Afrer we ordered our food, the service person brought out the food without utensils or all of the sauces that accompanied our dishes. The service pserson dropped the food off, we had to ask the host for the needed items. It seemed as if the service personnel wanted to hang out in back. When it was time to leave and pay the bill, the service person AUTOMATICALLY added gratuity for 2 people and never explained the gratuity. When questioned about the EXTRA charge , they Oh and proceeded to give back in CASH the extra tip on top of the embedded gratuity. In fact , the service person got tipped for POOR service without my CONSENT. If we were not in such a hurray, I would have had MAJOR complaints at that moment. I WILL NOT REFER.

I'd give this establishment no stars but in order to get to this point I rated it 1 star. We arrived for our scheduled reservation and was told the wait would be 45-60. The front of the house was very disorganized. The host seemed overwhelmed. There were several people stating they had a reservation and was told they'd have to wait as well. Strangely, a couple before us didn't have a reservation and was seated before us. We were finally seated and because this restaurant has a club environment, we were very displeased. We were seated in a booth and the table in front of us started dancing in front of our table and at one point bumped it. We finally decided this place wasn't for us. On the way out we encountered several other patrons had given up on waiting on a table and decided to leave. In addition, the parking for this establishment is park at your own risk of having your car damaged (double parked vehicles everywhere) However, we did notice the manager of the restaurant had a private spot in front of the door (signage and all). I guess his BMW was more important than mine. Please remove this restaurant from Open Table, they do not deserve to be a part of this organization when they are incapable of meeting your standards.

Service was extremely slow. We were a group of 5. Food for three were brought out. 30 minutes later food for the 4th in our party was brought out. The food for the 5th was about an hour later. The music was good. Our waitress was cool and warned us about the slow kitchen. Pay close attention to the gratuity added.

It was just OK. There was no ambiance... for the price of the food, not good. Floors were slippery! I saw several people sliding, including myself and I was in flats. Security at the door... not the best place for date night. Spent over $100! Just beware, gratuity is automatically added and we had to wait about 40 min AFTER we were done eating to get the bill and pay. I will not be back.

The service and food was horrible. I ordered shrimp and grits and it took 40 minutes for my food to come out (the restaurant was practically empty) the food wa bland and lumpy. I told the server and he said he'd get three manager. After 20 minutes the server, not three manager came to the table and told me 20% would be taken off of my bill. Since gratuity is mandatory apparently, even for crappy service, the "discount" only took care of the gratuity. Never again!!!

My only complaints is that we didn’t know there’s a 2 hour seating limit at the tables. If we would have known that, we would have made our reservation a little later so we could hear the band. Also, we love oyster and they was out of raw oysters and garlic Parmesan sauce. The band and the oysters were the main reason for us going. Love the atmosphere.

My reservations were for 9pm we were seated until 9:30-10. It was my boyfriend's birthday a party of 20 and we only had one waiter who got orders wrong and took forever to come to the table. It took more than an hour to receive my drink whick was too strong..i enjoy the music much the customer service has to do better

I was very disappointed, and a little embarrassed. I suggested meeting there for brunch to some of my friends because I had been there previously for dinner. On sight the parking lot was full of trash. Then the elevator was smelly and dirty. Then the floor was slippery and the staff areas were visibly unorganized with “stuff” piled around. One worker even had a bonnet on her head! The food did not come out in a timely fashion (it took almost 45 mins for the first buffet items to become available), and some of the supposed options never even made it out. The chef even told my friend that there wouldn’t be any waffles because the waffle machine kept shorting out because there was too much “stuff” plugged into the electrical strip. And then we were charged gratuity for a party of 4. I felt bad for having chosen that restaurant because that was a special day of celebration for us. Never again. Black folks need to do better for black dollars. Then they wonder why we don’t come back.
