“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We were able to be seated without a reservation on the porch. It was a little chilly at night but my crab legs and shrimp were perfect. My wife had a filet of Mahi Mahi with baked shrimp. All was great but a couple fish bones in filet, taste was excellent. I would definately return!

“Great seafood pot!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I visited this restaurant on several occasions and enjoyed it every time. We never made reservations and was always seated in a timely fashion. For this restaurant to be in the heart of Charleston, the service was great and the rooftop seating was perfect.

I highly recommend the seafood pot (don't remember the exact name), you get lots of food for the price.

“Great place to eat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We were seated right away - good service, crab cakes were delicious, breaded shrimp were big and so many we couldn't eat them all! Look forward to eating here again when we return to Charleston.

“Great food, service, and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had dinner at Charleston Crab House on a Saturday night. We called a few hours in advance and were able to get a reservation for 7:30. We were seated upstairs by a window and a had a great view of Market Street! There was an outdoor market that was still open so there was great people watching. The food was delicious! My husband and I split a bowl of She-Crab soup and the WORLD FAMOUS “CRAB HOUSE” CRAB POT (Steamed shrimp, Snow crab legs, Dungeness crab legs, mussels, sausage, potatoes and corn-on-the-cob in a garlic scampi butter). It was plenty of food for the two of us. There is no on-site parking as this restaurant is on the corner of two pretty busy streets but there is plenty of parking within walking distance. There are plenty of shops, other restaurants, and parks within walking distance making this an ideal location.
