    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.

    Hate to say it but the food was pretty bad and the service was worse. Should have know when we had no problem getting a day-of reservation.

    Best crab cake in New York by a long shot! Validated by a Marylander.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
