“A little topical paradise on the circle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Had lunch outside today. The outside sitting area is nicely done and complemented by a piano player. We had the fresh catch of the day and the fish tacos. They have a great lunch menu and a nice wine list. The inside seating looked very nice as well. Great service and food!

“Solid Seafood Choice at St. Armand's Circle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Enjoyed a very good meal at Crab & Fin on St. Armand's. For starters, the outdoor seating is ideal if weather is permitting. The outdoor seats are nice for people watching and soaking in the energy of St. Armand's. I highly recommend the clam chowder as it ranks up there as the best I've ever had. We enjoyed the crab legs (served cold with hot drawn butter) and a good shrimp scampi. My son ordered the adult steak and it was very average. I suggest sticking to seafood if you eat here. Our service was great... Not rushed, but steady. I would describe the cost as above average , but within reason. They do have a children' s menu and kids will feel welcomed here . The restaurant is busy so make your reservation early.

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

The last evening of our trip was spent dining at Crab and Fin. I had the 1lb. Alaskan Red King Crab. It was served chilled. The crab meat was so fresh and delicious. My boyfriend ordered the filet. The highlight of the evening was the crab! I highly recommend it. We will be back.

“Good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

The food was good, but overpriced in my opinion for the portion size. Our waiter was very good. The only negative thing about the experience was the host. He was very arrogant and snobby.

“GREAT FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

The food was excellent. We had the salmon which was cooked perfectly. We had no room for dessert but treated ourselves anyway and we're glad we did.
