Great variety of fresh fish. Most had crab on top. The crab stuffed mushrooms were very good as well.

I went there with my wife for something different and boy did we get it.(bad food) and a high price. To start with the bread was bland, I had the she crab soup it had the texture of paste and had a certain after taste that reminded me of late night prayer sessions after to much partying. I also had the lobster tail which was coated in spices but still couldnt hide the fact that it was a frozen old tail. My wife tried the chesapeak platter, A good choice our server said (He must be into culinary S&M) the only thing that tasted right was the broccoli. So my recs are dont go dont buy dont waste your time, if you want seafood go to gordons fisherman aisle 5 publix.

Pros: My wifes looks

Cons: everything

I actually created a citysearch account so I could review this restaurant. When I say it is absolutely dreadful, I mean it. I ordered the bronzed (sweet spicy combo of sugar and blackening) grouper. I got about a six ounce piece for 26 bucks...awesome! Not only that, it had no flavor. The bronzed wasn't such a great idea after all. I would literally not eat here again if they paid me. It is ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL! Do not waste your money!

Pros: the restaurant has a really cool design, the service was ok, and she was cute

Cons: they attempt to serve food. Micro-portions, mega prices, bland and flavorless.

We went to Crab House specifically for our 7 year old son- he loves crab legs. We decided to spring for it, even though it was slightly out of the budget range we wanted to stay within. As Vivian says in 'Pretty Woman', "BIG mistake...big..huge". I ordered what was called the "Blue crab special"- a traditional New England style crab claw dinner that included boiled red potates and corn on the cob. Sounds good, right? Yes, that's the operative word: SOUNDS. The carb claws barely had any meat in them, the potatoes were dry and flavorless, and the corn? Even my 7 year old, who simply loves corn-on-the-cob, said "No thanks" when I offered him one. Can't blame him; the corn was slimey and chewy all at once. When you have to stop at Burrito King on the way home from a restaurant because you're famished, that's not a good sign. Avoid Crab House and try another seafood joint. Extremely pricey for a whole lot of nothing. Plus, our waitress called our son a "spaz"- she received almost no tip.

Pros: Cool looking restaurant

Cons: Awful food, smarmy wait staff

I work close to I-Drive, so it is not uncommon for me to grab lunch someplace there. I always find myself back at the Crab House ordering the same lunch entree! When you go, you must try their crab cakes! I have tried crab cakes everywhere, and no one makes them as good as the Crab House. I have tried other items on their menu (for dinner) and everything has been wondeful. The seafood is fresh, and quality cannot be beat. If you are looking for seafood, then the Crab House is where you need to go. Try the crab cake as an appetizer, and then try some fish or shell fish for an entree. Luckily they offer many combo platters for those like me that want everything and cannot decide!

PROS: The best crab cake ever, and everything else is yummy too!
CONS: They do not deliver!

It's a feeding frenzy at The Crab House, and when you're hungry for seafood, the casual restaurant, with upholstered booths and paper-covered tables, fits the bill. If you're really ravenous, the all-you-can-eat seafood and salad bar has…
