Service was impeccable. The good was delicious. The crabcakes were fabulous. They serve sweet breads beside the meal. I loved the apple bread. I ordered spinach as my side...umm delicious. The only reason I did not give them 4-stars was because the meal only comes with one side.

I have lived in Midlothian, Virginia for over 30 years now and Crab Louie's has always been one of my favorite places for dinner. The atmosphere is warm and cozy with wide planked wood floors, classic chandeliers and often a toasty fire crackling in the dining room. They have a wonderful wine list with some of my favorite Napa Valley... More

My family loves this place--we have been coming here since my son was 10 yrs old(he is now 31), and it is his favorite seafood restaurant in Richmond. The bread other items that come with all meals is wonderful, and the Seafood Casserole is fantastic--so rich you will go into shock!

Nothing felt authentic about the food at Crab Louie's. We dined ine Friday night several weeks ago and the restaurant was faily empty when we arrived at 6pm. I had the Crabcake and Seafood Latke combo - both underwhelming and tasted like frozen food that was micorwaved. It came with some undisitinguishable sauce and when I asked for tartar sauce,...

Went for a friends bday.Food is just average but prices are sorta high.My son did not like chicken tenders at all and he is not picky! The salmon was really good.Salads are basically just lettuce and tomatoe.Servers are friendly but service is slow.We do have friends that go regularly and they love it here.We will not be going back though.

I ate here a few times quite some time ago and really enjoyed the quality of the seafood but this visit left me and my wife disappointed. The choices are not what they used to be and we chose to get desert elsewhere.

Went with friends to this restaurant which has been in Midlothian for a very long time. I had a gift certificate that was three years old so it was time to use it. I was pleasantly surprised. I had written this place off 20 years ago after a very bad experience with their food as well as service. Haven't been... More

My wife and I went out with the neighbors took Crab Louie's on 8/6, a Saturday evening. My neighbor made reservations and we ended up waiting at the bar awhile, it turns out the reservation was applied to the wrong date. Not one to complain we just waited and ordered some wine and drinks. Staff was very friendly and the... More

This restaurant has been around a long time and I have fond memories of delicious meals here. Took out of town guests here for a special lunch and was disappointed in our meals. The atmosphere is quaint and comfortable and our meal started off with a selection of delicious breads. Our meals included the crab cake sandwich and broiled seafood... More

Our table of four ordered the stuffed mushrooms (which were okay tasting but the mushrooms were a little soggy), trout almandine (good flavor), Caesar salads (nice light dressing but stale croutons), jambalaya (skimpy on rice but good flavor), and two shrimp Diane (good flavor, just a little skimpy). It was nice that it came with relishes, which weren't bad, but... More
