We'd heard a lot of great things about this place and decided to celebrate a birthday there for our first visit. Big mistake. Crowded layout, loud environment, overpriced food and drinks, mediocre food that had obviously been sitting waiting for our server to bring it to the table for quite a while. They may have been great once upon a... More

We went for my friend's birthday. It did not disappoint! The baked good--try them all--were fresh and yummy. They have house specialties at times like pumpkin or pineapple breads. Service was great and it is a lovely tavern. We ordered the seafood au gratin--the scallops are huge and need to be cut, but the au gratin sauce with sherry was... More

I ordered shrimp & grits; my companion ordered the salmon cakes. Acceptable but ordinary house salads arrived fairly quickly. Then the wait began. After about twenty minutes our waitress appeared and apologized, telling us that there had been “a computer glitch” and that our orders had not been put into the kitchen. “But they have now,” she reassured us, “and...

Excellent seafood and with turf if needed. She-Crab soup is always superb. The pre-meal hors d’oeuvres were excellent.

Although we do not frequent Crab Louie's to any great extent we've never been disappointed. Today's dinner was no exception. We we cordially greeting and had out choice of tables. The menu, water, relishes and assortment of specially breads, banana, zucchini, pumpkin and apple-cheddar arrived quickly. We ordered their grilled salmon ($20) and tilapia ($17) and both were excellent. Cooked... More

We were part of a large party that went for a birthday celebration. Our server did a very good job of handling the large party (16). I had the halibut which was only okay (probably should know better about ordering a west coast fish on the east coast). My wife and several others ordered the crab cakes and that seemed... More

Crab Louie's is one of the best seafood restaurants in the area. From drinks, wine list, ordourves, breads, relishes, entrees to desserts you can't go wrong. You might want to dress for the occasion and get a reservation. The atmosphere is great being a refurbished ship setting with antiques.
