    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.

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

    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!

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

    This is the Red Lobster for rich bankers that don't know where to spend their lunch hour. Mediocre cocktails and our order was misplaced. The food was miles away from the prices. Not coming back here.

    The good food doesn't offset the shitty service. Spend your money somewhere else.

    I would NOT recommend this place. The food was mediocre at best. Lobster in the Alfredo was rubbery, bread basket was dry, sangria was weak.
