We had heard about this place and stopped by for a quick appetizer while exploring the city around 3pm, there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant that I could see. We ordered gator bites which we thought tasted like fried sausage for $10. Server was friendly.

You will definitely want to include this restaurant on your list of places to eat. We enjoyed our seafood and ate outside while enjoying the evening sunset.

We were a party of 10 in all and they accommodated us well. Almost everyone in our group ordered a different menu item and all of us were completely satisfied with our selection. Would recommend this place.

This place has a great riverside location. It is at the river walk not far from the aquarium and the World War II museum. I was sightseeing and exploring the riverfront and stopped in to find Mollie behind the bar with a great smile and sweet personality. She was quick to wait on us and answer questions about the menu... More

I ordered the bourbon st. Combo for lunch and got a portion of shrimp and crab that was big and tasty. You can spend more $$$ and get small portions at the high end seafood/Brennan restaurants or come here and leave full

I went to this place about 10 years ago...and had a great bloody mary with the pickled green beans....they still have them today, and they are just as good. My guard is sometimes up on restaurants that have the perfect tourist location. The Crazy Lobster dispelled all my fears and was as far from a touristy experience as you get.... More
