A group of us (9) went there on Friday evening. We all had great food and service. My friend and I ordered a cocktail (Mohitos) and it wasn't good, we let our server know and they immediately offered us something else. The employees were all helpful as a team! Our server Danielle was really great ! We will definitely go... More

We went to the Crab Pot in La Quinta on a Sunday evening. We got there early enough to take advantage of their "Happy Hour Specials". Great prices during Happy Hour. Our two dinners were fantastic. My wife had the shrimp on the skewers and I had the sea bass. Both were cooked to perfection. Service by Chambria was fantastic.... More

Had house special crab cakes. Not so special. Mushy with very little crab.At 6 bucks apiece you expect better. Had to ask for silverware and cocktail sauce. Neither was offered.

Happy hour prawn cocktail and crab cakes keeps my Dad from ordering some of the other delicious things on the menu. Very generous sized prawns. Sourdough bread is always awesome. My mom and I enjoyed early bird menu with dinners for $9.95. Last night my Mom had the best seafood pasta she has had at the Crab Pot. She says... More

During the weekend, sat outside and flies swarmed all over us and although the food was great, we lost our appetite. Hopefully, they could fix this bc the food & service were great.
