Looking for a special place to have a relaxing dinner and visit we tried King Crab for the first time! The ambiance was great with light jazz playing in the background. The service from Chris was attentive but never hovering. We anticipated a quality meal from the reputation but the biggest surprise was the portions! Starting with a creole kicked-up... More

This place never fails. Always consistent from start to finish. Most of the menu items are made in-house including desserts. Likely the best thing is their home made soup, yes, home made. Soup changes everyday and you could make a meal out of them. They're that good. Hats off to Josh, he's brilliant on the soup creation. Back soon!

Dropped by this place for a Saturday night out. Delightfully cozy restaurant with friendly staff and a good choice of seafood. Not sure if the seafood was the freshest but the flavour overall was good and the prices were reasonable as far a seafood dinner is concerned.

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful dinner at the King Crab Oyster Bar and Grill. It was my first time there and I was quite impressed with the quality of the food and the level of the service. I started off with three oysters for an appetizer, and they were delicious. I'm a sucker for Malpeques. My... More

Lovely sea food restaurant with attentive service. What I like best is their willingness to accommodate my 'guilt free' preferences by altering the meal options. They make me feel very special.

I love it! We've been there three or four times. The food has very good taste and nice design. The atmosphere is good and servants are so welcoming. It's a fine cuisine, so won't expect a good portion of food. it was enough for me but my husband was still hungry! I highly recommend it!
