"The overall experience was very nice. However, I thought the prices were more than the actual value received. In addition, the fact that a 20% tip was already included in the total bill (stated very simply at the bottom of the invoice which we easily overlooked) resulted in our tipping yet another 20%. This made our grand total $186.19 for an appetizer, a house salad, a tomato juice, a very good steak and a pretty good crab cake (I have had better so not the "World's Best")."

"It seems that automatic tip of 20% destroyed any incentive to provide good service. We ordered oysters and our waitress forgot about them. But that's not a big deal - the major problem is that food is expensive but average at best. Crab salad was like the one from supermarket + crab. Crab cake was just average but overall portion was really small, not something expected from a main course."

"Promptly seated. Great view of the lake. Our server was wonderful. Very friendly, helpful with suggestions, and attentive without hovering over us. Two of us went for the 3 course for $30 special as part of Restaurant Week. Both of us were very happy with our salmon choice. The third person ordered the halibut off the menu and raved about the sauce! The tip is now calculated into the bill as is explained in the menu."

"Eating at Chandlers Crabhouse is a very nice place to go. Right on South Lake Union next to the marina and float planes. Our waitress Maria was the best. She has a great personality and very knowledgeable about the menu and the area."

"Menu and space are tired. Crab and chedar sandwich was a gross gloppy gut bomb. It was so full of sauce you could taste neither crab nor cheddar. Now they add a 20pct service charge AND still ask for a tip. Lunch for 2, no cocktails, $100. Without the location, they are history."

"Had a casual dinner date with a couple friends for restaurant week. We loved it so much we are making it a tradition to do regular dinners. For the price, the food is worth it. Amazing octopus and the Dungeness crab was to die for."

"We had a great server, top notch service, nice food so that part was great. I do not agree with their new policy of an automatic 20 percent service fee, that goes entirely to the house. *Effective April 5th, Chandler’s Crab-house will include a 20% service charge on each guest check. Chandler’s Crab-house retains the full service charge and compensates team members in the form of wages, commissions, benefits, or otherwise, in accord with employment agreements and understandings in place*. The server gets 13 percent, some to the bus staff and bartender but the rest goes to employee wages and kitchen staff wages. if the entire 20 percent went to the wait staff, buss staff, and bartenders that would be fine it, but the house taking the money and dividing it up to me is wrong, especially since you do not have a choice. I have been a dining room manager for 6 years, and knowing how hard servers work i have always tipped 20 percent, but the server is then responsible to tip the bus person and the bar tender then the rest is his or hers. Schwartz's Brothers change you policy and quit cheating your wait staff."

"Overall, the food was pretty good, but the service was lacking. There is an automatic 20% service charge added here. I don't normally mind this, as I think that servers and restaurant staff should be paid at least minimum wage. However, the service was slow, from drinks to food. Also, we had to ask a lot of questions, and the server didn't seem that interested or invested in providing service to us. The assistant who refilled water was rude. He slammed drinks down, and he just seemed very unhappy. We ordered the crab melt sandwich and crab macaroni and cheese. Both were good, but not anything special. There is a really nice view here, and I've heard great things about this restaurant, so maybe it was just an off day. However, I expected more from a $120 lunch."

"the parking situation is absurd and difficult to use. the automatic 25% gratuity is dishonest. no one says this before eating. the restaurant is poorly managed when this is part of a scheme with employees."
