Whether for lunch or dinner, this is a great place to eat if you're a seafood lover. The food is always good -- the crab cakes and seafood latkes are especially good...in fact, so good I can't get past them to try anything else! The atmosphere is cozy and inviting.

I'm in Midlothian on business from FL. I always try to find something "local" for dinner rather than one of the chains. I write reviews where they are due.
I found Crab Louie's Seafood Tavern online - the menu looked great so I figured I would give it a try. It is situated on Midlothian Turnpike in an historic building. I already had an idea from the online menu of what I wanted. I had the Butternut Crab Bisque and it was to die for. The soup had a touch of curry and the crab was generous. Loved it! They offered homemade relishes and breads - all that I tried were yummy. The included salad was nicely done rather than just a salad mix. For dinner I had the Crab Cake & Latke combination. The crab cake was CRAB - not a lot of filler as many places offer. The latke was very interesting (crabmeat, shrimp and lobster mixed with onions and fresh herbs broiled and topped with a sweet red pepper honey sauce) and delicious as well. I finished with Chocolate Brandy Mousee (yes dessert as it sounded so good). It was delicious although a little heavy - I'm used to mousse being very light.
I'm here for another night & I think I'll try it again. Yes, it was that good. So, if you are in the area & haven't tried Crab Louie's I highly recommend it!

Pros: Excellent food, variety of menu, good service

Cons: Appy, meal & dessert was a little pricey but I expected it.

I have been to Crab Louie's various times. Each time I order something different, crab cakes, scallops, shrimp, crabs... Each time I was extremely happy with my meal. Their relishes (3) are light and very tasty, the bread is always great. You can even buy a loaf to take home. The breads are so unique, zucchini and corn, pumpkin, carrot, pineapple, tomato? Their menu is seasonal, so you are always seeing something new. Their home fresh soups are exquisite.

I have ZERO complaints. The wait staff, bartenders, hostess are always very accommodating. It's a great place for an intimate dinner, business meal, or family gathering.

I've had crab cakes and the crab sautee-which is quite good. It is lump crabmeat cooked with butter and minimal seasoning. Some of the sides seem to be a little lackluster, however. They have the appearance and taste of being shaken out of a Sysco systems bag. The complimentary breads and relishes presented at the beginning of the meal are always great. The seafood seems fresh. I've never been able to make my mind up concerning the decor. A historic building with h i t and miss furnishings.

Pros: bread and relish sampler when seated

Cons: not the most handicap friendly venue

I can't say I've actually dined here, so I can't answer to the non-crab dishes. I called to make sure they had crabs at Crab Louie's and they didn't. Why isn't this place called Louie's?

Great crabcakes, latkes, homemade breads, seafood dishes. there is nothing to complain about. This place had a mostly older clientele when I went, and it can be pricey, but you get what you pay for here. Highly recommended. It was worth driving to the southside for.
