Great soup! Main course alright.

We tried the Jambalaya soup which was delicious. There was no she crab soup that night. :( While waiting for the main course our very gracious server brought us some hush puppies and some allumette fries. They were a little dry but a good nibble while waiting for the main course. I tried the crab... read more

I had a Groupon deal for this restaurant so I thought we would give it a try. I had been there once before and didn't like it but decided to try it as I was getting a discount. There was 2 other couples there. We ordered and the meal took at least 40 minutes to get to us. The salad... More

Just moved to the area and we were looking for something that wasn't a chain restaurant and decided to give this place a chance. A chance is what you all need to do because it is a local small business that just wants to thrive in the community. Does the decor, logo, menu design and website need an overall, yes... More

It's a dream, I guess, to have a few decent seafood restaurants here in the small towns of the Appalachian Mountains near my home. Our visit was overwhelmed by a restaurant, from the front door to our table, that was smoke-filled, and made us feel like we should hold our breaths, or at least, breathe very shallowly. The seafood was... More

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.
