We took our first trip here a couple weeks ago. We were 15 mins early for our reservation so we went to the bar, when I asked for a certain mixed drink the bartender made a face and said no she couldn't make it so I was unsure of what I wanted, okay fine but instead of suggesting something else...

I was traveling with my sister and a friend of hers and we stumbled on this place on our way back home. We were really hungry, and saw Dave and Jane's Crab House on the side of the road. Across the country road was a beautiful meadow with, unbelievably, stormy dark clouds, but a rainbow as we looked across it.... More

Can't say enough about the service. I don't know they waitresses name but she was super. The food was very good. I had the steak and shrimp. It was excellent. Cooked well and plenty to eat. My cohort had the crab and it was reported to be great. I would return here.

A must visit spot when attending the National Fire Academy!! The food is delicious and the Yuengling is cold!! They use a lot of Old Bay on the crab, so be careful if you are on a low sodium diet.

A crowd of us emergency managers from the Pacific Northwest made the obligatory pilgrimage to Dave & Jane's Crabhouse, and we were glad we did. This roadhouse-style joint featured King Crab/Snow Crab legs, lots and lots of crab. Most of the dinner specials paired steaks and some form of crab. Steaks were tender and cooked exactly as we ordered 'em.... More

We were quickly greeted by a friendly and efficient server and we were eating in about 7 minutes....we both had the auce legs,blue crabs, steamed shrimp, broasted chicken and crab soup. Everything was... More

We made reservations for 7:30pm and weren't seated until 8:45pm. This should have been our first clue. Our waitress was nice but horrible , she forgot everything from the appetizers to the salads and baked potatoes that came with our dinners. Two seafood platters were over cooked and the prime rib was inedible. We spoke to the manager and he... More

My husband and I have eaten at Dave and Janes about 6 times over the past 5 years. We usually go for our wedding anniversary as we did last week. The place is not fancy, the doors can be confusing, and the decor is outdated. But who cares? The crabs were perfect! We had the AYCE crabs. We had a... More
