Crab Louis is our "event" place - Mother's Day, Birthday, office Christmas Luncheon - the events when you want good food, warm atmosphere, courteous and conversational ambiance - just the way you remember it from last time. It is a old tavern, wooden floors, fire in the fireplace, excellent seafood and old Virginia recipes. If you travel to Richmond, don't... More

My second visit to this place was as interesting as the first 2 years ago. The bread selection and the lunch choices made it worthwhile to return. Set in an interesting village atmosphere, the food was delicious and the server young, witty and pleasant.

The she soup is their best item. The entrees are more on the average side. Balancing the soup -excellent - and the entrée - average - yields a very good overall.

The crab cakes were so small and shrunken due to being severely over-fried, the ceasar salad was an upcharge as a side without any dressing, croutons, or cheese- they actually gave us plain lettuce in a box! Cost $35! Worst meal I've ever had!!

Living for a month in Midlothian we went to Crab Louie's regularly for lunch. Always good seafood - especially the Seafood Latke. Popular with Old Southern Belles (ladies who lunch) and all the better for it!!

Oh my...we had a wonderful dinner here! We had to wait at the bar for about 45 minutes, before we were seated. I had steak and grilled shrimp. The steak was perfect! The grilled shrimp was perfect. I would definitely go back again. The food was a little pricey but well worth it!

Crab Louie's in Sycamore Square is a tradition here in North Chesterfield. Meals start with their house-made relishes and sweet breads. I am a particular fan of hazelnut crusted trout and sizzlin' spinach so good you want to lick the dish. Their she-crab soup is creamy with large chunks of tender crab. It's the locally owned place where locals go.
