River Crab - St. Clair Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I enjoy eating at The River Crab. We aren't sure, but we feel that the wait staff are trained to turn their tables quickly. Our server did an excellent job, but we felt that we had to slow her down. We were out for a Saturday night dinner and we were not in a hurry. She kept saying that there was no rush, but she continuously pushed us to order. I told my husband that the next time we dine there, we will tell the server that when we put our menus in a certain place on the table, that we are ready to order.

I have to say at 7:45 u were out of the dish we wanted. The waitress never refilled my husbands tea and my water was filled after I started drinking my husbands as we were on the dec and it was hot. I also wanted cheese cake and it was out too. The food was delicious. It was over an hour drive so alittle sad at the service.

The food service was fair at best. I've been going to the River Crab for years it didn't seem to be up to par with past years service and food quality.
The green beans weren't cooked and my seafood platter could have been hotter.
The best thing the River Crab has going for it is the view.

We had taken the Huron Lady II Sunday river cruise earlier that day, our group had a 5:15 dinner reservation for 16 to settle back, enjoy a meal and watch the freighters go by. Having never been to the River Crab before I didn't realize that outdoor seating was available when I booked the reservation. We arrived at 5:00 and the hostess and staff were able to rearrange some outdoor tables and accommodate us on the patio for a wonderful dinner and beautiful view. Everything was perfect! Thank you so much - We will definitely be back again.

You know girlfriend all about coming to the river crab and good the food was but you showed me wrong. I ordered shrimp and pasta thinking it would be great and was shocked when found the noodles was very dry and old and over cooked . There was only two pieces of shrimp ? Why ? For 32. You would think you would give more then two shrimps. I stated to my waitress and she stated if that is the only thing your not happy we are good?????

I had made reservations for a table by the water. When we arrived we were told that a table by the water would be a 2 hour wait. So we settled for outdoor dining. It was over 10 minutes before a Manager walked by and asked if we had been taken care of - we hadn't. The manager was very nice and quickly took our drink and appetizer order. From there the service just got better. The food was incredible, the service great and we salvaged the evening.

We had late reservations, 9:45 and the kitchen closes at 10:30 so I knew were at the tail end of everybody's shift. Our waiter Tony was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. He made sure we understood the items we were ordering and answered any questions in a confident manner. One of the better dining experiences we have had in a while. The lobster is over priced for the quantity received, $37 for a 10oz tail seems a little pricy for me and it didn't come with much, just some asparagus. But the food quality is always excellent and we will be back for sure, the Dynamite scallops appetizer is awesome and the pan seared scallop dinner is just amazing!

Situated on the St. Clair River with ample outdoor seating and indoor patio seating along the river provide scenic views of freighters transiting the Great Lakes--can't beat the ambiance.
The food is very good and the wait staff are attentive, efficient and helpful. Fish is always prepared well and the Gazpacho is wonderful. The Key Lime Pie is wonderfully tart and just the right (smaller) size.

We love River Crab! We really thank tour waiter Tony & the receptionists for moving our table after the electric plug at table 95 did not work--my husband needs power for his oxygen concentrator. Everyone was so helpful! Tony didn't miss a beat--- running from the enclosed porch area to our new table--giving us great service! We celebrated my birthday & our friends anniversary--everything was delicious!

I was celebrating a friend's birthday and River Crab is one of her favourite places to eat. We selected from the lunch box special. I had the shrimp and artichoke pasta and the birthday girl chose the hamburger...we both had the martha vineyard salad as our appetizer which was delicious. Also, we each enjoyed a glass of wine with our meal. The portions were very generous and we each ended up taking half of our entree home. It is great value for the price and our server was very attentive. We will definitely be back again.

Took an of state guest here for brunch before the art show and it was a great start to the day. The staff is very personable and experienced. Very good brunch selection with made to order omelettes available too. Dining with spectacular view of the river is a bonus

I've been here before several times and enjoyed it. Not so much this time. Made reservations but still had to wait over 1/2 hour for a decent table...not in the section we requested...no apologies. Very noisy. View was blocked by a huge boat docked outside which was there before we arrived and still there after we left...so did it belong to a diner or overnight guest at the adjacent inn? In any case many diners were not able to enjoy the view that evening. Waitress was not attentive and seemed very rushed, but possibly not her fault. There was a different wait-person assigned to each of the tables in our section....so they all must have had their tables spread around. Really?! Food was not hot...it was greasy and looked like it was thrown on the plate. My guest ordered the same meal as myself, but it arrived with different vegetables....I had a huge pile of soggy green beans, the other person had a very small portion of squash. (Not ordered this way.)

First, your Open Table on line booking service is fantastic. Our reservation was properly recorded and confirmed and even our special instructions were noted. Now, as to the River Crab, it is our opinion that this is one of the finest restaurants on the St. Clair River. This restaurant deserves a five star rating for food, service, and ambience. My wife and I celebrated our 19th anniversary and Will be going back much sooner than our 20th. We would definitely recommend your service and the river crab to anyone interested in a fine dining experience.

Drove from Milford. Excellent ambiance with the table outside on the water with freighters passing, great dinner, excellent service. If you live in eastern Michigan you must dine here at least once because few other places offer what River Crab has.

This is such a lovely location, be sure to sit by the windows. The menu has something for everyone and many delectable fresh seafood options. Since it was Father's Day, it was uite busy. Perhaps a bit more support staff for topping up drinks would have been helpful in reducing wait times and some frustration. Overall, if you haven't been, you must go!!

The server was good, however I was taking my Father out for Father's Day and when he brought the check, he felt it necessary to announce my Landry's Rewards and also the total of the check. This is inappropriate and embarrassing. Also, we both and the filet and the filet leaves much to be desired!

Servers should have help with service like refilling water and coffee or any beverage,removing used plates .When they have 3 or more tables specially with 6 or more,everyone has to wait .Our waiter really tried his best however it was so hard for him to keep up with everyone's needs specially if you sit next to complainers.

this was our first visit , which was not what we visioned. the staff was very dry not energetic at all. We requested a certain area which was told that the area was closed which was not accurate. when we expressed this was our first visit and we would like to sit by the window we were ignored,
I must say the other landrys locations are more people friendly and very welcoming
the food was good there were no signs labeling what each dish was

I wish we would have known about you before we booked a venue at the Doubletree in Port Huron. The place was busy, but accommodated all comers. Your valets made me lose weight just watching them. Since my wife and I are both professional chefs I am a sharp reviewer of food stuffs. The Lobster and shrimp slightly overdone, the scallop sauce a bit rich and that being said the filet was to die for, perfectly cooked and the asparagus was fit for a king as were the potatoes. You present a culinary mecca. We will be back again in Sept. The drive from Alabama was long, but your barkeeps, servers and other wait staff made us post you, to our friends who travel, looking for the diamond in the rough. 4 stars..well done.

Potatoes were hard, we had requested a special table for a bday / convocation dinner and we were seated by the waiters spot where they put silverware and the menus noisy and very tacky
Women's restrooms were out of t.paper.
