I went to City Crab to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday and although my expectations were not high, I left with City Crab on my "never again" list. I ordered a mahi-mahi, which I sent back (first time I have ever done that) because it was drenched in the wrong sauce and overcooked. What everyone else ordered was average and forgettable. Service was impersonal and efficient at best. Mediocre food, impersonal service, and high prices - not worth it!

I got the Lobster Cobb salad. I figured it would be a Cobb with a little bit of lobster. No way! I got a TON of big chunks of lobster with my salad, a whole tomato, half an avocado, and plenty of bacon. This was a great salad - enormous and plenty to share. I love the atmosphere in this place. It's not some snotty Manhattan restaurant where the tables are right next to each other. It's laid back and the food is fantastic. Best NE clam chowder I've ever had - and I'm from New England!

The selection of seafood here is fantastic! The crab soup was full of crab chunks and the clam chowder is creamy and full of large clam bits! I've tried their salmon fillet, flounder and shrimp. Each time the fish was fresh and you got a large piece. Worth every penny.

I have been going to city crab for many years. Though I can not justify $75 a pound alaskan crab legs What I can say in their defense is that the food we order here is not cheap, not local, and difficult to prepare properly. There are no better selections, near by atleast. The raw bar has some of the freshest oysters anywhere in the city. The service wasn't half bad, pleasant.

Happy hour... not so happy! In fact there is barely any good deals here. Food quality is not so good. It is an amazing space but I would rather see some other restaurant move in and take it to another level. Too pricey for less than mediocre food.

I'm a regular for their Happy Hour, as it was always a great deal on drinks and appetizers. I invited a friend to join me last night, and they have switched all of their glassware at the bar to much smaller sizes. So basically, you are getting 1/2 glass of wine for $6-7, which is really not a deal at all. Several patrons at the bar commented about it last night. This is a very disappointing change.
