My husband and I used to eat at Crab Creek all the time due to the good service and great crab legs (and good prices). We had dinner there in December 2014 and had a pretty bad experience. The parking lot was full of RV's (I think the owner is involved in some sort of RV rental business) and the... More

After recently relocating from coastal NC I had a craving for some fresh seafood so I decided to give Crab Creek a try, even though the reviews said otherwise. I arrived between 7 and 7:30 to a full parking lot(which looks like a mini RV resort with four to five RV's parked on one side of the parking lot). It... More

This place is terrible. They have bad service and their food is not good. We had two certificates to eat there and the food was terrible. We used the certificates but we won't be back. With no one there why was the service so bad? We could forgive that if the food was good but it is not. You can... More

My husband and I had a Restaurant.com certificate for this place. We went for dinner on a Friday night. When we arrived we were told we had a 10 minute wait but there were only 3 seated tables and the rest were open. They only have 1 waitress and 1 cook. If you have somewhere else to be, do NOT...

The place is a joke. Me and my family actually laughed at how bad it was the whole time we were there. We sat down and the waitress was very nice(notice how I said waitress, meaning there was only one in the whole restaurant) but I felt like we waited 20 minutes before we even got our water. 15 minutes...

Loved it! My favorite is the she crab soup. Food and service were perfect, the atmosphere reminds me of those off-the-beaten-path seafood restaurants at the beach. This will definitely be a regular stop on my trips up to Radford.

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
