    Overall service was great. Food was ok. Ordered the 2lb lobster and it wasn’t what I had hoped for. Price is $65 for 2lb lobster. Let’s just say I m not eager to revisit. The location of restaurant is so quaint and adorable. Lots of other restaurants to eat at in this village. Try something else!

    Here on vacation, we had a wonderful experience at The Crazy Lobster!!! Simone took care of us and could not have asked for better service. She was so pleasant and professional. She was training another young lady with an awesome personality as well. The food was AMAZING.. truly making this experience one of the best we’ve experienced thus far during our vacation. Thank you Simone and Team for an experience we will never forget!!!!

    The service was phenomenal the food not so much…not at all for the price. Also make a note that a 20% service charge is added to parties of five or more.

    Group of 14 including kids. Vegetarian options were a challenge for two people in our party. Our 13 year old daughter asked for a vegetarian pasta. They charged her for an Orleans pasta at full price. The lobster tower is not worth the price of $150 for what you receive. Food was delicious, but very over priced. Service was 7 of 10 at best. No drink refills for anyone. Female bartender was more attentive than the waiter. He looked a little overworked and confused. Loved the community it was located in, but we won't be back to this restaurant.

    Food was pretty good but service was subpar. We had to ask for a waiter after waiting 25 minutes at our table. Then it took another 10 minutes for someone to come with waters and to take our order. The server that stepped in to help us was helpful & tried his best even though we were not in his section. The manager told us she'd get our food in and rush it...this was not the case as tables who arrived later got their food ling before we did. We realized when we received the bill that they automatically charge a 20% service fee and our waiter explained that they tip share. Therefore, no incentive for some to work harder because everyone gets the same at the end of the night, unless you tip beyond the 20%, which we did because we wanted to thank our waiter for stepping up once we found him in the hall & told him noone had visited our table. Unfortunately, we likely won't return.

    Food was worth about ⅓ of the price. Full bar was not truthful statement. Had to get up and find the waitress to pay the outrageous bill. Parking was a nightmare. Overall first and last time for us.

    We were placed at a table in the corner of the restaurant. After 15 minutes at the table, not one of the wait staff spoke to us. We did not even receive a glass of water. They waited on the two tables right next to us so we decided to leave. So glad we did!

    We were sat quickly but then sat at the table for 15 minutes before anyone even came over to greet us. Drinks took another 10+ mins. We ordered apps, salads, and entrees at the same time once the server finally came back over and we specified the apps from the entrees. One hour later, everything came out at the same time, all cold. Two apps never even came out and about three things were incorrect. The food had good taste but was all cold so that ruined it. We get the checks and were charged full price for instead of the $5 add on salads we ordered and were still charged for the three items that never even came out. Service ruined the whole meal and for the price of everything, it should have been a way better experience. I do not recommend whatsoever.

    This is a super cool place to eat dinner! Watching the sunset go down over the water was an added bonus. For apps we had the tuna and a Caesar salad, both outstanding!! For entrees, we ordered crab and lobster from the Cajun boil options, and they were both very good!! Lobster was a little chewy for me, but the crab legs were outstanding! I also had a bloody marry which was delicious as well. Great experience, although it did take a while to get our food.

    Last minute reservation 5/21/22 and the food was superb!! The blackened redfish was top notch cooking. The shrimp and grits my son ate as well as the cakes appetizer. He said both were extremely good. The least impressive was the key lime. The pie was good but sometimes simple is better. Their version comes with whip cream dollops and seem to overpower the pie. I scraped mine off. The band was playing and a good time was hard by most of us! Would return.

    We had the boil with corn, potatoes. shrimp, clams, mussels, crab legs, and an entire lobster. It was not cheap but with the amount of food it would feed 3 people. This is our first meal after arriving and I have no doubt when we leave we will be talking about this meal as our favorite meal of the trip. It was simply amazing.
