    You know we LOVE our seafood at City Crab BUT...we also have a number of options for those who are not a fan of our aquatic friends. Come down and try the delicious Chicken Sandy or Chicken Parm!

    Came here for restaurant week. The crab-stuffed lobsters are delicious, but the appetizers were disappointing. I recommend ordering dishes separately (if in a big group) rather than getting the set.

    Best part's the $1.25 oysters during happy hour, 4-7pm weekdays. Only counts if you're seated at the bar -- if the bar's full downstairs, try the bar on the mezzanine.

    If you're hungry, go for tasty & generously-portioned chicken & waffles. Crab cakes are tasty and filling. Much smaller place & menu, but still popular.

    Pop in for happy hour oysters, and eat dinner somewhere else. Great location, but quality and decor straight out of 20th century. Great opportunity for a hip restauranteur.

    Love it all seafood dishes are they use fresh ingredients and aren't stingy. If you're a foodfan select member you save 20% off your full bill

    Great place for seafood.,,yet be selective or your bill will get out of hand. Stick with appetizers-- half the price of typical entrees. Avoid the wine ...$11 for the cheapest one.

    Happy hour is top-notch. Found an unsettling amount of cartilage in my crab cake, but I didn't care because it was so crabby and delicious. The side salad was yummy and unique, too.

    Pan-seared yellowfin tuna is melt-in-your-mouth superb. Also great is the lobster mac & cheese.

    If the Crab Pot and Lobster Bake both look good to you, go with the Crab Pot. You won't be disappointed.

    Lobster mashed potatoes delish! Calamari very dried out but mashed potatoes were wonderful! Staff really nice.

    Careful! The kids meal chicken fingers are amazing. If you taste them you might not have room for your entrée.

    I don't understand some of these tips; service has been great every time! Linguini with white clam sauce is a favorite.

    Best happy hour of all time: half price cocktails and apps. The crab dip, lobster Mac and cheese and bellinitinis cocktails are fantastic.

    Seafood perfection. The space is huge and they have a great happy hour, 1/2 off practically everything, and you can even get to the bar

    Good if you’re in the mood for it. Very solid venue but not romantic. I go purely for food, not the vibe.

    Friendly waitresses, laid back atmosphere even on a Saturday night. Try the cold mussels and the iceberg wedge salad - very fresh

    Drinks are not their strong point! But the raw bar is consistently fresh and great value for the price. Sign up for their mailing list for great weekly specials-- today's was half off lobster.

    Was really excited to finally come here but it was a let down. Food was good, but not spectacular. $70 for crabcake, soup, and two beers. Maybe just go for happy hour...

    They will not give you smaller portions just because it's restaurant week. Lobster Alfredo (reg. menu) is so, so good and rich.
