Hands down the BEST waiter I've ever had. His name is Jenson and he is wonderful. Knowledgeable, friendly, funny and very helpful. Try this place and ask for him, you won't be disappointed. The food is good and reasonably priced. Nice variety

Love coming to Blu, year after year we come back. Every time I come I ask for Morgan, she’s been there since our first visit. Everything we’ve had has been amazing, steamer pots especially.

We visited the restaurant during the busy memorial day weekend. The wait was long but well worth it. The service was great and the seafood delicious. The calamari was so good we had to reorder it. The crabs were cooked well. The crabcakes were slightly...More

Blu Crabhouse and Raw Bar is mostly an Outdoor Restaurant so it limits our availability to take reservations due to the changing weather. So on most nights, weather permitting, we take call a heads for parties of 10 or more. More

BLU Crabhouse and Raw Bar opened its doors in 2012. Beautiful sunset views on the bay. BLU has offerings for everyone. There are Ocean City favorites on the menu-the dishes you look forward to enjoying every time you come to the beach. Awesome steamed MD blue crabs, shrimp and clams, and crab cakes as well as some new twists on the traditions using innovative ingredients and seasonings. The Raw Bar has a rotating oyster selection with everything from Chincoteague's to Blue Points! Unique specialty drinks and a draft beer featuring local microbrews and a rotating selection of craft beer specials! You can dine and enjoy refreshing drinks outside on the deck or on the beach at BLU Crabhouse and Raw Bar. It's the "complete package" for a casual, fun, delicious dining experience! Closed for the Season, see you in 2018!!
