Seated us timely with our reservation. Server could have checked more on our table. Food was good and hot. Don't go there for wings..lol. Cooked too hard. Stay in the seafood lane. Great DJ!

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.

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
