We arrived here from Baltimore after our son graduated from Radford University. Being from Baltimore, my family loves Chesapeake Bay crabs and Old Bay seasoning as well as Maryland Crab Cakes. Crab Creek met our expectations in terms of service, atmosphere and good food and good times for our large family. The restaurant is almost comparable to the Rusty Scupper... More

We went here and the first thing I noticed was the strong fishy odor in the whole restaurant. It nearly makes you lose your appetite. I've been to seafood places before that didn't smell like this. The food was ok, not great. We didn't ever go again.

What a dive! This place reminded me of a haunted house, where you're running like hell scared from it, but also realizing there were amusing aspects. We went on Friday & easily got a table just before 6. The place filled up with mostly elderly folks (8 of 12? tables) very quickly after that. You don't starve to death waiting;... More

I grew up near the coast and love seafood. Crab Creek has the freshest and best-prepared seafood without the long trip to the beach! The blue crab and steamed shrimp are delicious. No matter what you order, be sure and add the half-pound of shrimp. This is not a fancy restaurant, but I rate it high because the food is... More

Ok...first visit...we had really not visited the Crab Creek Restaurant because the outside is in such poor shape we weren't sure they were still in business...but were told by a friend or two that there were so we decided to give it a try. 2/27/2014 It was cold outside and they have a small little gas fireplace in back so...

I find the food at Crab Creek is excellent with very good service. The atmosphere is low key, comfortable,clean, and family friendly. My husband and I dine here often and have enjoyed every meal particularly the fine crab cakes and house cole slaw. Portions are just right for a satisfying and tasty meal. We will definitely be eating there again,

Love the fireplace... food is good.. decent portions.. fish is cooked perfectly every time and they have lots of wine by the bottle but not overpriced and beer options are good too. See if you can snag a Groupon and that's an added bonus!

My husband and I went with a groupon deal and still felt ripped off! I do not know how they stay in business. First, the french fries??? Who wants to eat a basket of french fries before dinner, no hush puppies. No bread or dinner rolls. The food was bland, poorly plated, barely warm and slow to arrive. The atmosphere..well...what...

Visited Crab Creek after seeing they were voted Best Seafood in the New River Valley. And... the seafood was great. The restaurant itself could use sprucing up, and the service is slow, but they tell you that up front - good food takes a while to cook!
