If you like overpriced crabs in small portions than this is the place for you. Ordered King crab and got 2 legs and 1 small claw for $27.99. The flies buzzing around my food all dinner would have been fine except we were sitting inside so a little annoying. Save your money and time. I really dont know how this... More

Dear Mike 081376, It seems you had a less than pleasurable experience at Mud City. Our king crab is priced due to the quality of crab we serve. We serve premium king crab and the price is per pound, not based on how many legs are on the plate. There are some places that serve "all you can eat" style... More

We drove down from Philadelphia to try the crab cakes and blue crabs here based on reviews we found online. We were not disappointed. We had both of the crab cakes. I liked the lump cakes better than the one with the filling. The soft shelled crabs were very nice. The blue crabs were well prepared. Overall, a fun and... More

Nice menu, byob too. Casual and comfortable and the wait staff is friendly and helpful. Had a seafood combination platter...nice size and plenty of sides to choose from..not just the usual slaw and French fries.

Really good restaurant, food is very fresh and not expensive. Go back every time we are in that area. Worth the wait of which there is always one.

We use takeout 3 to 5 times per month as we will not fight the crowds and the hour + waits for table especially for two. We generally order the lobster tails and occasionally, the scallops. It comes with two sides and a short wait. The prices are good and the quality is vey good. During the Fall when the... More

Dined with my wife, sister-in-law and niece. My wife had the crab legs, awesome. Sister-in-law had a blackened fish, delicious. Neice dined on clams also great. I had their Crab soup and Cioppino it was better then one I had in San Fransico. Our server Paige was very knowledgable and attentive to our needs. They have a limited liquor license... More

This is hands down one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever been to! My family and I have been coming to this place for years and we have NEVER had a bad meal here. The food and service are consistently superb and the nautical atmosphere is sure to make you feel like you're on a vacation. Just be... More

We had 11 people in our party and all 11 were satisfied...that never happens! We loved it so much we are debating going back another night even though we are only here for a week. The service exceeded our expectations. My cousin called ahead and let the hostess know what time we were coming. It was 1.5hr wait when we... More

Did you read the title of this review? If so, need I say more? Well, I will anyway. This joint rocks. If you're vacationing on LBI, you're only fifteen minutes from a great mealthat's very reasonably priced. That's a conundrum. Reasonably priced and LBI don't go together very often. But at the Mud City Crab House, it is the truth.... More
