Horrible food...horrible service....took my father there today who is visiting from NJ. I was upset with 1st being seated on the deck which was utterly nasty with food and waste from previous patrons, nothing had been cleaned. We waited

This place has been closed for years now. It was replaced with The Lighthouse seafood buffet, by Landry's.

This is my favorite place in Kemah. I take that back, in the Houston area in general. The price is high but you can't beat the service and food. Eat outside, you can watch huge boats pass by in the chaneel about 20 yards away.

We went there for a friend's graduation. The service was excellent for the most part. We sat outside with a view towards the water. The food selection was good whether you're into seafood or not - there were enough items on the menu if you wanted something else.
They have a great salad bar which can be included to your meal for a fraction of the price. The salad selection was great, there was also caviar and a few other specialty items that made it worth it.
The salmon I had was grilled to perfection - tender and juicy with enough flavor. The portions were a bit on the smaller side, especially considering the price.
The bartender forgot our order twice so he had to be reminded by the server. That is especially annoying when you have a friend that graduated and you need to make a toast. The drinks were watered down and I wouldn't really call them a value for the price.
At the end of the night came the big surprise - 20% gratuity included to the dinner. Now, standard tip in Texas is 15%, so what makes their waiters so special???
Overall pleasant experience with more than few hiccups.

Pros: good food selection - mostly seafood but also other

Cons: slow bartenders

The menu was a little pricey for the quality of seafood. Service was a little slow especially since it was a slow night overall for customers. Patio seating is nice. Band was nice. Just another average "Joe's"

My first visit to The Crab House was a splendid one. It was a work related event so there were about 40 of us. The table was set up to accommodate us perfectly. I believe Julie and Rania were our servers. They were very knowledgable and worked very well as a team. The manager visited our table several times and was very kind. We did not have to wait long for anything. Our Group started off with a salad, followed by clam chowder , and soon after a meal of our choice. The food was fantastic, Service was by far the best I've had in a long time. I would highly recommend The Crab House to all of my friends and family.

I think this was the worst place I've ever eaten. First, the waiter was awful. We waited over an hour for our food, not including the wait for our drinks and bread. Then, when I asked for tea, the waiter brought me a whiskey and coke and then proceeded to tell me that it was FOR HIM and that the bartender had made him the drink b/c he was stressed out. THEN the food was awful. For a 20 dollar seafood plate you would expect a lot of food. Even if it was 45 min. before closing I would not expect to go to a nice restraunt and be served the bottom of the container (whatever was left in the fried basket of crumbs). On top of all this the manager even came to our table to apologize and never offered to reimburse us. NEVER AGAIN.

Pros: the water

Cons: , the food, the value

The Seafood and Salad Bar at the Crab House are what to go for.... we tried to order a lunch to go along side and I could barely take a few bites because we were so full off of oysters, crab claws, crabs, and snow crabs. The service needs a little work at the Crab House, maybe the waiter was just new, but could have used a little more kick to his step.

Pros: great seafood, view of ocean

Cons: waitstaff is slow

This is by far the best seafood we've had in years. They had a large variety and reasonable prices. The waitstaff was thoughtful and we were served in a timely manner. We never needed for anything. The atmosphere was very clean, including the restrooms. We were very impressed and are looking forward to returning soon.

Pros: Inexpensive, Clean, Curteous

I still say the Crab House was best back in its Seabrook location, before Kemah was a tourist trap. But this newer, larger version still serves good food. Unfortunately, they dont serve crawfish (unless its fried). Bring your ID if youre under 40 and plan to drink. They card everyone.
