The place was hard to find. They have a sign on the street that directs you to the parking lot in the far back behind the other stores on the street. I was told it was like Red Lobster but more homey. That's a good description bec. it was not modern looking, but was like a long time restaurant you'd... More

This is a classy restaurant, without the snobby ness associated with some restaurants. Food is good, service is very good, and most of the time, Roman (Owner) will visit your table and see how things are going and handle any concerns without hesitation. Very Pleasant atmosphere, their early bird specials are a super good value, There is an upstairs bar/lounge,... More

Stopped in for dinner and it was really quaint. The service was great and the food was good. The bread and garlic butter was delicious! My husband had the seafood pasta and loved it. I ordered the chicken and crab cake combo, the chicken was good and the crab cakes were really good, you could tell their fish was fresh.... More

Crab Cakes is a well-deserved name for their signature menu item. They also have a nice selection of other items, including salads. The atmosphere is fun and conducive to children and adults. The service is very friendly and efficient.

Their move to the new location improved the parking situation and increased the restaurant space. We were with friends for lunch on a Saturday. There were few vehicles in the lot and lots of seating in the restaurant. The wait staff was friendly and service was prompt. However, the noise level was so high we had to speak loudly to... More

Our first experience with Crab Cakes was for the Mother's Day Brunch. Yuuuuuummy! We had a great meal and my husband swears they were the best oysters he has had. We went for dinner on New Year's Eve and loved our meal. The food is fantastic! The crab cakes are heavenly and my mouth waters just thinking about them. Everyone... More

Don't know why we never found this little gem, but it has great seafood, a nice atmosphere, good service and was a treat to eat at. I think you will enjoy if noir looking for fancy.

There was quite a wait to get seated here, at this small seafood restaurant and bar (we were at the restaurant, the bar has a separate entrance and is upstairs). Some high school kids were eating there before some big dance. Well, they've got good taste- it's really good seafood which is a bit surprising this far from the sea... More
