We went there for a late lunch, the shrimp cocktail was out of this world! We also had crab guacamole and Cajun octopus, it was all great. Service was grand!!! We had all this to eat plus 6 mixed drinks and the bill was $91, we thought this was reasonable.

We went there for lunch and the food was amazing. We were the only ones there, so we were very well taken care of. The view from the deck outside is beautiful. Can't wait to go back.

Staff were delightful if hovering a bit too much... They were out of fresh crab that day, if you can believe THAT!!! However, the day was saved (granted, we arrived at that in-between time (4ish) by every other delectable dish. The shrimp with lox and caviar was fantastic. :)

It was Valentine's Day and we really needed a spot to make a memory. After a quick interwebs search, we found the crab house. Valentine's Day and an open table reservation for 6:45pm (which we made at 5:39pm) and the journey started. I'm pretty adventurous in my eating style so crab, lobster and oysters are fairly common. We arrived at... More

So it's valentines and myself and the girlfriend decide to leave the resort and walk down to the crab house, never being there before but always seeing it. So we walk in to find you need a reservation and they are completely full. Thinking we would be turned away, the manager took us in and set us up at a... More

Great food with excellent service. A little too pricey. It had a beautiful view outside on the deck. Everyone was extremely nice and polite.

Our second time here was even better than our visit two years ago. We got a complimentary appetizer and they went out of their way to make my birthday dinner special - with singing waiters, a cake, etc. Wonderful evening! Delicious seafood, and great service. We would highly recommend!

We have visited this restaurant with friends. They have no 3 kinds of vine from their wine list which we have chosen. The food was extremely salted. We ve taken pasta, octopus. Comparing this restaurant with others it was the worst. Because of this the restaurant was almost empty for Sunday dinner.
