Very fresh seafood. Had one of the best soups I've ever eaten. Sangria was excellent. We enjoyed a nice lunch!

Had a great dinner at the Crab House. There was a guitar player playing on the deck while we enjoyed our dinner and looked out at the water. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Maryland Crabs and I had a great chicken dinner. We walked out of the restaurant totally full and happy.

Before the fire a number of years ago, this was a "must go" place on our vacation. The past several years, our experience has deteriorated with each passing season. Labor Day week 2016 was our finale. There are too many good restaurants in the area to waste an evening at The Crab House. Poor table, poor service, high price, and... More

Nice restaurant on the water. It has a lot of seafood dishes on the menu along with meat dishes. The all you can eat crabs is the reason I was there. If you go try and get a seat next to the water and wait for the sunset.

We took a beach vacation to Wildwood Crest for the first time ever this summer. Our front desk clerk recommended this place for dinner on our first night. The place was close and it was packed! The parking lot was huge and almost every space was filled. Quite impressive: this place must be good. Well, when we got up to... More

Not sure if I'm posting at the right place but I believe both establishments are connected so here goes. This review is for the Two Mile Island part. Went there on a Saturday night in mid-October. Place was crowded. The soups were excellent. Butternut squash & clam chowder. Waited for almost an hour for our main course. We ordered easy--2... More

The Crab House Restaurant is located at the Two Mile Landing just north of the bridge from Cape May to Wildwood Crest on Ocean Drive. There are two restaurants at the location. The Crab House is more informal. There is interior and exterior seating and tables, booths, and picnic tables available. Our meals were satisfactory. We had the Crab Imperial... More
