We enjoyed a quiet dinner. Great food and service. A lot of selections and options and all were very good. Relishes and sweet breads for starters. Oysters and seafood were fresh and prepared excellently. Recommend this for the traveler or local.

We were there late in the evening so a few items we wanted were not available. The service was great...basically what one would expect at the end of the evening. We ordered the she crab soups which was fantastic!

Crab Louie's should be fine for your celebration. I would also recommend the Boathouse. The boathouse offers the view and some distractions/ attractions for the kids.
