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.

I love this spot!!! The food and music is awesome!! I just think after a certain hour kids shouldn't be allowed in there because of the adult environment... but overall a nice place

Started with the Bar Tender having to serve as Hostess, Waitress and not being familiar with the menu found her running back and forth to kitchen. Then our orders took too long, the Chef came out to apologize that they didn't have the fish we ordered because they held a party for the Love & Hip-Hop Cast the night before. The Seafood was fried in a batter that was Hard, Thick and Gritty. The Check was wrong and it took forever to cash out and leave. I'm just hoping it was a Bad Day for them.

We made a reservation for diner on Christmas Day at 3:00 and when we arrived after a $20 taxi ride the staff said oh you are the 3:00 open table reservation. We are sorry we decided that we are not go to open today until 5:00 today, but we can get you in at 5:00. So we are from out of town. And had a hard time finding somewhere open on Christmas Day. I had Waffle House instead. Not exactly what I was planning for dinner. I would not recommend going to Crab house.

I don't understand why I was allowed to make reservations for a table, and once I got there, we weretold that they were closed due to remodeling. It was my husband's birthday, he ended up eating McDonald's because everything else was closing early.

They advertised all you can eat crab, shrimp, and crawfish for $19.95. We requested this from our server and was nonchalantly told "there was a last minute scratch on that." I explained this was the very reason we drove from Cobb County, and there was no concern or attempt to compensate for the confusion. My husband ordered a crab and shrimp basket which couldn't feed a toddler and cost over $30. I had pasta. The food was tasty, but not worth the cost, and the drinks were overpriced. We ended up spending $155. Which was NOT the plan. I would NOT reccomend this place to anyone due to the way they do business and they are way overpriced! The only bright spot was the band!

Making a reservation means nothing. We waited for almost an hour to be seated then they tried to squeeze a party of 6 in a booth made for 5. We had to ask to split up our group for more room. The waiter was very pleasant but it was packed so he wasn’t able to provide much service. The music was great but I don’t think I will be returning

everything was good. A little confused as to why they charge 18% gratuity to every check. Even if you eat by yourself at the bar its still 18% gratuity. The food and the service was good. I would eat here again if I'm wanting quick crab legs.

1st time @ Crab Spot. Great. Menu selection is killer GREAT. Had a Dungeness Crabs and Shrimp boil, got 2 select my choice of spices. Appetizers were good for choices. Had deep fried deviled eggs. Tasty and enjoyed them. Good selections of beers and wines + cocktails.
Service was excellent and the waiter was friendly and helpful. Park in their lot in any place even though the parking signs give you signs for certain restaurants.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday evening at this restaurant. We could not wait to try the crab legs which were recommended to us by a friend. We ordered and they came back to the table to tell us they had no drawn butter. NO DRAWN BUTTER AT A CRAB RESTAURANT? We were some of the first customers that evening, so they could not have exhausted a supply of drawn butter. They were ill-prepared. We could not find our waiter most of the evening, thus we had to ask other wait staff to help us. Poor service from our waiter, great service from other wait staff.

Had some disappointments, doors were not open when we arrived, they cleaned the floor while we're there with ammonia and brought out the food, 18% gratuity included for each individual person is a bit much, some of the buffet food was cold, but our server was very nice.

re the food, i had the lobster tail, which was overcooked. the broccoli was ok, though i enjoyed how it was seasoned. the tastiest part were the truffle mashed potatoes, but the serving size was too small - overall, the meal's price was way too high for its value, flavor, etc. plus, i had a stomach ache afterward

re the service, our server was pleasant and tended to us well. however, the tables around us sat for too long before being bused

i will not return or recommend to others, not with the prices vs. value and service as it is right now

Absolutely delicious food and prepared with quality. The facility is being rejuvenated and was in some disrepair. The entry was horrible approaching the front door. The landlord needs to be required to clean up the property! We will be back and have an office party during the holidays.

The elevator was broken and the stairs leading to the restaurant were filthy. It did not set a good first impression. Menus were frayed at the edges. I expected a classier ambience and not to be told to keep my dirty appetizer fork and knife as I will need it for the next course. The family in the table next to us waited so long for their food, they finally just got up and left. The restaurant was not crowded so it was hard to understand why service was so slow.
