River Crab - St. Clair Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding food quality, well presented ...
Outstanding food quality, well presented and extremely tasty. This is at this time the best place to have a truly outstanding meal, with a great view and superb service. The River Crab reminds me of the old restaurants that use to be in the Detroit area. The setting is relaxed, you can wear a suit or casual and in either case feel comfortable. It is the BEST in the area. Thank you.

It's been several years since I've been here as I had relocated out of state. A employment opportunity came up recently which brought me back home just before Christmas and it was only my son and I here (unfortunately the rest of the family won't be joining us for six months or so).
In searching for a place to go for Christmas dinner, I found the River Crab was open and decided to drive up to enjoy the meal and the view of the river. We were not disappointed.

I have enjoyed several quality meals at the River Crab, however Christmas Eve (2016) was a disappointment. Menu was limited with no substitutions allowed, service was slow, drinks were diluted, potatoes and vegetables were obviously under the heat lamp to long. Four of my ten guests did not finish their meal based on quality. Essentially the River Crab was overbooked or were understaffed and failed to deliver a memorable experience. Atmosphere was loud, price was at a premium, staff was courteous but not apologetic. Truly not what I anticipated when making the reservation. As a side note the menu posted when booking was not the same offered when we arrived, I would not have gone forward had I been aware.

River Crab is one of our favorites and it didn't disappoint on this visit. It's primarily seafood but it has plenty of choices of non-seafood items as well. The fresh catch seafood is always excellent and prepared perfectly. The restaurant has great ambiance as well, situated right on the waterfront in St. Clair. Good service also. Wonderful restaurant!

It has been about a year since I last ate at River Crab. It was an amazing meal all around. The food was incredibly good, and service equally so. I would highly recommend River Crab to anyone that enjoys excellent seafood!

Crab cake and salad were very good!. Had to request a bread basket. What's up with that. Main course was OK. Rice and vegeetables were not hot. I would say not even warm. Perch was good, but nothing special. Worth the price? Not really. Server was fine, could have been more attentive.

The River Crab is one of our favorite restaurants, we live just a mile away so go there often. The food was fantastic as usual and the place was clean, warm and cozy as usual. The negative on this recent visit was the service, it was not up to the professional standard that is always delivered. Maybe just an off night or perhaps short staffed hopefully not a trend for future visits.

The restaurant was not busy when we were there. And even though very few tables were occupied, the hostess placed us at a table right next to a large, noisy group. With all the space available that night, I thought the hostess used poor judgement.

We were 'waited on' by Tony, who provided excellent friendly service. All the food was presented very nicely and within a reasonable time.
The only wrinkle was that my steak for more like "Medium to Well Done", rather than "Medium Rare" that I had ordered.
The good news is that the restaurant immediately addressed it, made sure my dining partner's meal was also looked after and 10-15mins later the two meals came back, this time as ordered. The manager also paid us a visit to apologize, and made sure that everything else was good.
So for this dining experience, not a '5 star' rating, but certainly a solid '4 stars'.

Always a pleaser although I would like to see some seasonal specialties. Bartender Kieth is a real gentleman and professional. Happy Hour is fantastic and a real enjoyable time before dinner. Our favorite all around restaurant still after 40+ years of attending.

overall it was a very nice evening. We were a little disappointed because we requested a window table and we did not get seated near a window. We also had a little annoyance with dirty dishes being left near our table but that was corrected by the general manager once we complained. The food was very good and we feel it was priced well.

Great spot to get together with friends for a special occasion or to enjoy a romantic date night on the water. Menu has a nice variety of both food and wine or drink options, however if you are looking for a large number of healthy options you may have a difficult time. The majority of the menu is traditional seafood or American style versions of classics that are not exactly waistline friendly. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful with our pre-dinner cocktails and the waiter was knowledgeable and provided great service throughout the entire evening. Our entire party was very pleased with the overall experience and we would definitely return next time we are in town to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

Regina went above and beyond to ensure a perfectly delightful dining experience for my husband's birthday. The Sea Bass snd Planked Salmon were cooked to perfection and our seats were perfect for viewing the beauty of the freighters and fall colors on the St Clair River. We loved our dining experience💜

Went here with our son for the Sunday Brunch. Great selection of food from eggs to carved beef as well as a great dessert table. Lots of seafood items shrimp, smoke salmon and smoked mussels. Would definitely return.
