    It is quick it is roomy and the deals are good but I cannot call it seafood.

    A long time fan of the oyster and crab legs I always like to sit by the bar and chat with the bartenders

    Only go here during happy hour, otherwise it's overpriced.

    The Bread basket was great, loved the flatbreads. The Striped Bass was extremely tasty, the Blue Crabs satisfying, the Lobster was perfectly cooked, and Crab cakes were amazing.

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

    The best of the best for a special treat. Lunch specials are a great deal for lobster rolls!

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

    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.

    A bit too pricey, but the fare is good.

    Great happy hour weekdays 4-7 at the bar (not sure about wknd) half price apps. Lobster Mac and cheese and oysters are top notch.

    Half off appetizers during happy hour are not the greatest...but they're half off so I go 😋

    Best happy hour!!

    Jessica · July 1, 2014
  • Gordon M.

    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

  • Joe D.

    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.

    Ask to be seated on the second floor, it's nicer

    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.

    Max Sklar · June 28, 2013

    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.

    Tony Xerray · June 17, 2013
  • Dave S.

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

    Dave Surgan · June 5, 2013
  • Brea E.

    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.

    Brea Ellis · May 23, 2013
  • Hildred D.

    Try the species lobster pasta , it's so good and very very. Hot !!
