My family and I ate at the Charleston Crab House and really enjoyed our visit. The food was great, but the service was outstanding. Our server Kathy was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating to our special requests. She has a great personality and a wonderful smile. We will definitely stop by and ask for Kathy the next time we are in... More

On our last night, we decided to NOT travel into downtown Charleston for dinner. Using TripAdvisor's map function, we located this restaurant for a nice waterfront finish to our trip. We actually identified a dish from the reviews that my wife wanted to try. Finding the restaurant was easy. We saw it as we approached over the bridge. As requested,... More

We ate here while staying in Folly Beach and had a delicious meal. Hush puppies were to die for (be sure to ask for them because they aren't on the menu). Our waitress, Chrissy, was very attentive and made the meal even better. We were able to sit at a table by the windows looking out over the water -... More

The food and service was great. The hush puppies they give you before the meal are great. I am not a fan of hush puppies, but theirs are the best I have ever had. Would definitely go back if ever ib Charleston again.

I'm getting to spend a good amount of time in Charleston. At my most recent visit (10/19), we decided to try Charleston Crab House at the marina; there's also one on Market St. In a word, the food was great! We had stuffed mushrooms, fried shrimp, shrimp and grits, clams, fish and scallops. The best dish was the BBQ shrimp... More

We enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. Christine was our server and she was so attentive and prompt. We had a 11 month old child with us, and Christine went our of her way to help the mother and all of us in our party. We would and will recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

We ate here while on a day trip to Charleston from our Myrtle Beach vacation. We were seated in the outdoor patio by the bay. Before we ordered, a dolphin in the bay! I was very surprised! I was also surprised that boats can dock there. Food was great. Atmosphere was great. Impressed.

Every time we are in Charleston the Crab House is a must. The staff is always friendly and the food excellent. If weather permits get a table on the outer deck and enjoy the river. Be sure and try the She Crab Soup, it the best!
