“Looks better than it tastes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Lots of advertising with delicious-looking pictures, but the actual delivery does not approximate the rather banal seafood with prices considerably out of proportion to the quality delivered. Friendly staff, nice surroundings, but, lets face it...this is corporate cooking, not a crab-house in Baltimore.

“worse and worse”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Oh my God!!!. Where did it go the good food? Where is the "World famous garlic Crabs"? And the "famous" buffet?
Prices too high for a low-quality food and poor service. For many years , every time me and my wife come in USA, we have had a dinner at Crab's House. But every year past, we have found somethigs less. This year, the worse. Never more.

“Nobody there, good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We went there on Sept. 7th for our wedding anniversary, couldn't believe that there were almost nobody in the entire place. It was between 6-7pm on a Friday night. Then saw the menu and prices and can understand why. It has good food and service for us was very good, but food was overpriced. The cup of clam chowder wasn't $7 cup of soup, my entree was very good but not for it's price nor was my husband's jumbo fried shrimp for it's price. People can do the same quality for less money and they don't like the butcher paper on the table etc when demanding high prices. This restaurant is part of Landry's but needs a lot of help as it can't compete with similar restaurant that offer same type and quality but at a lower cost.

“Good Food but Slow Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

The food was pretty good, we had the crab feast for 2 ($84.99). Plenty of food but took a longgg time to get it. Got there are 9pm and took until after 11pm to get out of there. 1 round of drinks, food and no dessert.
