This was a southern cooked seafood place with generous portions ( 1/2 lb and 1 lb ) at a reasonable price for families ( about $40 for a family portion) You will want to wear the napkin and gloves they give you to clean up....You can chose how hot you want the sauces so the kids won't get overwhelmed but you can get a little more flavor. The reviews I saw make the wait staff look flawed. But they were over a year old. Our waiter was excellent. The bartender took a special interest in my baby girl ( I don't blame her, my baby girl is really cute. Even the passing staff was friendly.. The reviews shown in 2020 are NOT an accurate reflection of what I saw yesterday.More

Had dinner with friends, looking forward to trying something different and got different. Staff not friendly or knowledgeable. Food was average and everything extra; was extra. No complimentary bread or salad.

First Impressions Visited this recently opened seafood restaurant on a Monday night and at first I thought it was closed because I didn't see anyone dining from the outside, but they did have about a dozen customers so it was pretty empty. This could be...due to it being a Monday night and the same week of Valentine's Day. The table was set with a large sheet of paper and nothing else. We received 2 forks, 2 bibs, and 2 pair of disposable gloves, and 2 wet wipes all in a small garbage can that the server placed on the table. They gave us 2 paper plates in case we needed them. I'm used to tables being set before being seated or soon after. Not the case here, I took the fork out of the garbage can and set the table myself. Not the best first impression, but I'm here for the food...I can't eat customer service or ambience. Service Service was okay, other than the set your own table situation. Our server didn't seem that informed about menu items that we asked about. Most requests for substitutions on some of the combos were met with resistance or refusal other than subbing potato for corn. The Food The menu is light on pictures, so we had to ask a lot of questions about portion sizes. I could see in pictures that the shrimp come unpeeled and with legs. I'm not a fan of unpeeled shrimp, I want to pick it up and eat it, not peel it. They make it very clear on the menu, every time shrimp is mentioned, that it comes with 'No Head'. I've never been served shrimp with the head on, so I'm confused why this needs to mentioned. We ordered the "E" combo, the catfish basket, and a dozen wings as an appetizer. Appetizer and main courses all came out at the same time, but the wait was not long and the food was hot. The "E" combo [1 lobster tail, 1/2 lb. snow crab legs, and 1/2 lb. shrimp (no head)] came in a bag on a metal plate. This is a very seasoned dish, but the flavor was good. The fried catfish was good. The chicken wings don't come in many flavor options and the wings are on the small side but they taste good as well. The 'cajun' fries served in the something fried baskets aren't really cajun fries, they're just seasoned fries. Is it better than Red Lobster? Not in my opinion. Red Lobster has more food options, pictures on the menu, is more accomodating with substitutions, and Red Lobster's "no head" shrimp also comes peeled with "no legs". King Crab is a different type of restaurant, with more of a family owned restaurant feel as opposed to a national chain that has their system dialed in tight. Even though I can't eat customer service and ambience, Red Lobster has more of both. In terms of price value, I give Red Lobster the edge even though menu prices are comparable. The edge to Red Lobster is given because of the complimentary cheddar biscuits and the salad included with your entree. At King Crab, the side salad is extra and they don't give you biscuits or bread to eat while you wait. Would I eat there again? Yes. Knowing what to expect and not expecting much beyond seafood that taste good, I could do it again. King Crab wouldn't be my first choice for seafood dining, nor would it be a place I'd take someone if I was trying to make an impression. Be advised that if you leave this restaurant less than a 5-star review on places such as Yelp or Google, they will promptly have an employee post a bogus 5-star review countering your criticism in specific. If you post that you don't like the table clothes, they'll post that the table clothes are amazing within minutes of your review. See for yourself and watch out for the fake 5-star reviews.More
