We loved our dinners here at Crab Alley! The staff was great, food was delicious. We ate outside on their upstairs deck, it was a beautiful night. Their crabs are their specialty.

Food was absolutely excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the snow crab feast for two. The shrimp were outstanding. Price was reasonable and worthy of the visit. We will definitely visit again. We were able to get seats ouside facing the marina. The view was fabulous at night.

My family & I went to Crab Alley after it was recommended by locals from the Assategue Adventure trip. We we very disappointed! My neice got the alaskan king crab legs, you don't get much for the price & not too much meat on them. The waitress boasted how good their homemade cloeslaw was..well it was terrible..way too much pepper,... More

My boyfriend and I went here the first night in o.c. I'm so glad we found this place and wish we would have went back every night we stayed in o.c. I got the grilled Mahi sandwich with hush puppies, he got the half pound shrimp with a side of hush puppies. Let me tell you can split an order... More

Hard to mess up crabs but the rest of the menu is another storey. Bad fried fish, bad hush puppies, insipid crabcakes. Salad was a mess. How do you mess up salad?. Way overpriced for minuscule portions. Total flop.

My father and I ordered the AYCE crabs, shrimp, and fritter combo. Crabs were small and overdone (full of water), the shrimp was very hard to peel which indicates they we're frozen, not fresh, and the fritters spent a few seconds too long in the fryer. Considering that this restaurant is right across the street from a marina the quality... More

We stopped at Crab Alley in OC for lunch, and I ordered the jumbo lump crabcake sandwich, which was pretty expensive at $17, BUT, let me tell you, from a crabcake aficionado like me, I have to say this was one of the best I've ever had! It was nothing but pure white jumbo lump crab, no filler, no bits... More

Got there around 5:30pm, easy parking, didn't have to wait. Say on the deck overlooking the harbor. Seating was a little cramped but not bad. My wife and I got the seafood dinner for two. It came with a dozen medium crabs, 1/2lb of shrimp, a basket of hush puppies, two ears of corn and two bowls of soup. Soup... More

No wait to be seated. We were seated upstairs which was not loud and had lots of windows. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. Everyone in my party had AYCE crabs so I cannot comment on other foods on the menu. The crabs were of nice size. Much bigger than a lot of other AYCE offers. First dozen was... More
