Overall, I would say it's a decent place to eat. Food arrived pretty quickly and was hot. I had the Carolina Platter which is a crabcake, fried shrimp and a snow crab leg cluster, with two sides. Wasn't really wanting two sides, but the server kept trying to push the second since "it comes with two sides". I would have... More

The food came out fast but the grouper wasn't cooked and was sent back. The hush puppies were good but nothing to set them apart. The low country boil was tasty but would've gladly sacrifices some corn and potatoes for a few more shrimp. Perhaps the rub was in the price. The total experience is what I'd expect from a... More

My family and I ate at the Charleston Crab House and really enjoyed our visit. The food was great, but the service was outstanding.

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

Deep fried bacon wrapped crab stuffed shrimp made me wish my stomach was bigger. This was the best seafood I have ever eaten! Yes it is pricey but oh so well worth it. The shrimp were huge the meat was tender and had a hint of sweetness. The presentation was appealing. Service was great. The collard greens tasted like my... 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.
