A bit disappointed here

My wife and I visited Crab Creek from Smith Mountain Lake. We are originally from New England and will drive miles for a good seafood restaurant (that won't send us to the poor farm). It appears that either people in SW Virginia don't know what good seafood is, or they are willing to put up with... read more

We sat by the gas log fire and listened to music while our courses arrived. The she-crab soup was outstanding. I had some delicious Tequila shrimp pasta, and my husband had the class 5 seafood platter which was very good and more than he could eat. I would definitely recommend it. I think there may have been problems with servers... More

Very disappointed. We waited 35 minutes to get our salad. Our waitress just ignored us when we tried to get her attention. The fish was not cooked well and the cold slaw had peanuts it in. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I had a Groupon deal for this restaurant so I thought we would give it a try. I had been there once before and didn't like it but decided to try it as I was getting a discount. There was 2 other couples there. We ordered and the meal took at least 40 minutes to get to us. The salad... More

We tried the Jambalaya soup which was delicious. There was no she crab soup that night. :( While waiting for the main course our very gracious server brought us some hush puppies and some allumette fries. They were a little dry but a good nibble while waiting for the main course. I tried the crab and roast potato and my... More

Just moved to the area and we were looking for something that wasn't a chain restaurant and decided to give this place a chance. A chance is what you all need to do because it is a local small business that just wants to thrive in the community. Does the decor, logo, menu design and website need an overall, yes... More

It's a dream, I guess, to have a few decent seafood restaurants here in the small towns of the Appalachian Mountains near my home. Our visit was overwhelmed by a restaurant, from the front door to our table, that was smoke-filled, and made us feel like we should hold our breaths, or at least, breathe very shallowly. The seafood was... More

My husband and I used to eat at Crab Creek all the time due to the good service and great crab legs (and good prices). We had dinner there in December 2014 and had a pretty bad experience. The parking lot was full of RV's (I think the owner is involved in some sort of RV rental business) and the... More

After recently relocating from coastal NC I had a craving for some fresh seafood so I decided to give Crab Creek a try, even though the reviews said otherwise. I arrived between 7 and 7:30 to a full parking lot(which looks like a mini RV resort with four to five RV's parked on one side of the parking lot). It... More

This place is terrible. They have bad service and their food is not good. We had two certificates to eat there and the food was terrible. We used the certificates but we won't be back. With no one there why was the service so bad? We could forgive that if the food was good but it is not. You can... More
