My absolute favorite restaurant of all time

Best seafood and steak place around! We celebrate new years and anniversaries here every year! I been here at least 20 times and it always impresses.

Although the crab fried rice was tasty, I went there with hopes of trying their famous dungenes crab. Unfortunately they were out of dungenes the night I went.

Be prepared to wait, lines are long especially weekends & summertime. Good food but in my opinion over priced for what you get. Staff are so so

Fun place to go to and take other people. The sizes of the crabs and steaks are crazy big! Wait staff is exceptional.

I have been taking my family to Bob Chinn's Crab House for years now and always find it to be incredibly good. My family members love the Berardi Crab and have it every time we go. I thinks it's great as well but the stuffed shrimp dinner is one of my favorites. I have tried the Swordfish, Red Snapper, Salmon... More
