We enjoyed a quiet dinner. Great food and service. A lot of selections and options and all were very good. Relishes and sweet breads for starters. Oysters and seafood were fresh and prepared excellently. Recommend this for the traveler or local.

We were there late in the evening so a few items we wanted were not available. The service was great...basically what one would expect at the end of the evening. We ordered the she crab soups which was fantastic!

What is not to love about Crab Louie's - the breads are wonderful, the meal choices are great and not expensive. Service was attentive too. All around, a great lunchtime treat!!

Great place that you will miss if you are not looking for it. It has become our "go to" place for seafood.

This was my first visit to Crab Louie's, although the restaurant has been around for quite a while. We were there for lunch, so the restaurant wasn't crowed at all. We were seated right by the fireplace, which was lit and made the room nice...More

Crab Louie's should be fine for your celebration. I would also recommend the Boathouse. The boathouse offers the view and some distractions/ attractions for the kids.
