I went down to the Fairway reopening, and I saw this place across the street. The place is kitschy inside - plastic fish and fishing poles, but the view is great. I sat at the bar and watched the boats in the harbor and the mayhem at Fairway. The bartender/server was really nice, and she recommended the crab cake benedict. It was delicious! I highly recommend it. I also had the crab bites, which were like crab cake meatballs. I probably didn't need to double order crab cakes, but they were really good. To top it off, I got a bloody mary with an oyster on top. It was freshly made and good, but I do like mine with a bit more horseradish. I'd definitely give it a try for dinner.

My boss always asks for bullets rather than a story. So here goes: - Poor service - rude, immature, childish staff - Unnecessary wait (while tables were empty) - Food tasted as if it were frozen - Left hungry. Made a beeline to IKEA and feasted on Swedish meatballs and a hot dog. Called it a day.

It seems they are doing you a favor to let you eat there. High prices. Will not be back. Waited in front of an empty table for 20 minutes and when our name was called they wanted to give us that table!

I agree with the previous review. It "seems" good in theory, but the service and the disorganization kill what view or vibe this place COULD have to offer. The "manager" was rude, the waitresses seemed to have zero experience and everyone was running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Living in New England most of my life, the seafood seemed frozen, not fresh at all. and overpriced for what it was. The wait, is also definitely not worth it.

My large group of 8 had a great experience here! We had 4 kids, 4 adults, and we we tried every kind of seafood under the sun. Everything was delicious. The kids had maybe even more fun than we did because our waitress went out of her way to joke with them and take them around the restaurant. Great atmosphere, food, and service.

A great concept isn't enough to keep me coming back. You need to have people who know how to run the place effectively. Brooklyn Crab looks great on paper: a crab shack in the Red Hook neighborhood. The concept is great food with views of the harbor. Too bad the management can't seem to pull it all together. The wait for a table is upwards of two hours. Tack on another two hours for food. Service is nil and management seems absent. No one offered us a round of drinks after a half hour order never arrived. The menu is good but absurdly overpriced. The building is beautiful. Sad there is an amateur feel to how it's run. Hopefully they'll figure it out.
