River Crab - St. Clair Ratings and Reviews
Not the fine dining experience we're accustom too.
Our most recent visit included an out of town friend who we haven't seen in 30 years. Our choice was the River Crab, which we often regard as the finest dining available in the area. We were seated near the door, which was rather loud and busy. It made it difficult to hear each other. Our waitress was very pleasant, but seemed new and not trained nearly enough. She struggled with serving wine, brought our meal before we barely had any chance to enjoy our salads. Our steaks were cooked too long. Medium rare was more like medium well. Not pink, cooked entirely though. We probably should have complained, even though it was already a bit embarrassing. For now we will continue to dine at the River Crab, but not with out of town guests.

Our server, Pim, did a very nice job and helped me select a very succulent salmon dish. Thanks.

Seldom disappointed in the River Crabbe. Been going there since 1967. Latest was our 49th wedding anniversary dinner. Waiter Kevin was great.

We have Landry membership. Had reservations for Sat nite 6:45,arrived 10 min. early, and were told a 10 - 15 minute wait for a priority window table along the water. We went to the lounge to wait for our friends and our table. Our friends arrived at 6:45. Drink service was quite slow. At 7:15 we asked about our table and were told 10 - 15 minutes. It was about 7:45 when we finally got our table. Dinner service was also quite slow so we did not get our bill until after 10:00. I ordered the Pasta Pagliari and was disappointed at the small portion of seafood and sauce. (Red Lobster's version is $3.00 more and much better). We were fortunately with friends we thoroughly enjoy, so did have a very good time, but one couple is in their mid-eighties and my husband is recuperating from a very recent procedure to insert stents in blocked cardiac arteries.
The food is always cooked to perfection! The appetizers are the best. Can't wait to go there again!

Enjoyed Mother's Day brunch with the family.
Great buffet, water views, overall nice experience.
Good food, nice view
The food was great and the service was great. It was really crowded, but it was Mothers Day. We had reservations and were sat right away. A little pricy, but good food.
We really enjoy the ambiance and food at the River Crab however we were celebrating our Anniversary for this occasion and found that the waitress seemed uninterested in what she was doing with us. She was trying to work so quickly that the straw from my drink and cutlery while cleaning up went flying onto the table. There was no candle, they didn't bring my husband a second drink when ordered and it seemed like a rushed dinner.
Great Service. With Landry points a great bargain. Meal was outstanding

First time visiting
From start to the entire experience was outstanding. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable without being to intrusive. The dinning area has great view and is relatively quiet. We will go back again.
good atmosphere , waitress was excellent
Good atmosphere, waitress was excellent, and food was great. Only wish food was labeled in the brunch.
The River Crab has always been one of my favorite places to dine for the past 30 years. Because it is a little pricey, we usually just go on special occasions. We were a little disappointed in our visit this time. The redskin mashed potatoes tasted like they were made with sugar instead of salt and when I told the waitress she told me the cook said they always make them that way. Also, we were never offered fresh ground pepper for our Caesar salads. We got tired of waiting and trying to flag the waitress down, so we ate them the way they were and they were a little under dressed too. The candles on the table were never lit. I ordered fillet oscar and my fillet came with mushroom demi glace and they topped it with crab and brought me a little bowl of Bearnaise sauce on the side. The demi glace should have been left off. It was quite strange. I'm hoping this was just a one time slip for them. That being said...the other 7 people enjoyed their dinner choices. The appetizers were also very good. We will go back but if we are not happy next time it will probably be the last.

From the start of the reservation waiting over and hour to the clam chowder being watered down. Then to order the special only to be told after a half hour that they were out then have the table next to us order it and told the chef found it but we were charged for the more expensive dish. The manager played with the lights the entire night.
The view and the dinner was great
We got to the River Crab early and sat in the bar and had a drink. The service was great.
Awesome Sunday Brunch on the Water
Excellent service, very good food, wonderful water view....loved the prime rib and desserts the best!
It was great! My Antoinette's Birthday was the occasion. All I can say is Thank you!
River Crab Review
Service was excellent and view was spectacular! Food portions were just right and pricing was good. Clam chowder was superb! Had a wonderful time and would recommend to friends and family!
The seafood was fresh and flavorful. Dessert and appetizer portion sizes are a tad small. Overall everything was delicious the view is beautiful.
The River Crab
This place never fails to impress. I was very delighted to see a new menu item. A whole Fried Bronzini and it was delicious. what the heck everything their is awesome.
We had a 1:30 reservation and we were seated at 2:00. We thought that wasn't bad for one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants. There was a wide selection of food. We really enjoyed the meal.
Stella was awesome. Food was amazing as always!

Another Landry's Triumph
Tillman and his crew have done it again! My wife accompanied me on a business trip to Port Huron and we decided to try River Crab in St Clair......we were not disappointed. A little out of the way, but well worth the side trip. Great food. Great staff. Great view. Pretty much what you're used to if you frequent the Landry's Brands.
Brunch on the St Clair river
We were there for brunch, there was a huge variety of food to choose from all of which was very good. I would recommend the brunch to my friends. We were entertained by a pianist and a sea plane practicing take off and landings on the river.
The food and ambience was just OK.
The hostess and wait staff were very nice and accommodating. The river view was pleasant. I was not impressed with the food. I've had better at a Muer restaurant and was expecting more. The building was old and tired looking. I drove 45 minutes and relied on others' recommendations from this site . Very dissappointed.
The food was horrible, especially for the price!!! I had the surf and turf.. Filet was horrible tasting, the lobster tail was chewy, it's sad that the mashed patatoes were the best part of the meal. The wait staff was friendly, the decor was out dated. There were zip ties holding up electrical on ceiling.
Best tasting food in the area
Had the Salmon (grilled) was excellent, vegetable medley was cooked to perfection all had a snap to them. Meal came with rice and was very tasty. The tempura shrimp appetizer was the best I ever had. I will recommend The River Crab to all my friends.
Food was excellent as always. Waitress was nice. I hate to say that the place needs some remodeling because I'm afraid the prices will go up but it really does. Never the less I really enjoy going there.
Wonderful view of the river. Nautical themed decor, including a racing boat attached to the ceiling (by the tables on the river) with photos of past races. The food is fantastic with a good selection of fish and seafood. I ended up with the Citrus Parmesan Chicken, along with a wedge salad and shrimp cocktail. Substitutions were allowed on my entree sides. The rack of lamb appetizers (a special on that night) were adorable and delicious. The cedar plank salmon was also a big hit with my companions, as was the seafood trio. The service and waitstaff are very good and attentive to your needs.
Our Mom's 70th Birthday Celebration was a fantastic experience! The food and service were Outstanding! Thank you so much
St Clair Riverside Dining
We eat here a lot, probably 3 times a month. Great view, food, and service. A Landry Club membership is a great addition. Highly recommend!🍴
Fabulous night on the River
The great food here was further enhanced by that rare find; excellent service. Our server was professional, quietly respectful, knowledgeable and with quiet attention to detail she made our meal perfect pleasure. It's not often that you happen upon real "service" and it made the night for our group of seven, celebrating nothing but friendship. Thank you River Crab for training your waitstaff so well. The meal was delicious too. All ordered fish and empty plates all around. We appreciated no loud music, allowing easy conversation at this larger table. Really couldn't have asked for more.
This is one of our "go to" places.
If you like river views, then this is where you need to be. The staff is of the highest quality only surpassed by the food! Although a tad on the pricey side, we still find it a value because of the ambiance and decent serving size. Everything here was mouthwatering, right down to the after dinner treat of complimentary dark chocolate fishes.
An unfortunate evening
The River Crab is our only fine dinning restaurant we have locally. In as recent as three years ago every lunch and dinner we ate at this restaurant was melt in your mouth delicious. It was the go to place for all our celebrations and we considered dinner there a special occasion. I am deeply sadened to say in the last two years we have experienced a series of catastrophic, miserable meals. Food improperly prepared, served cold. At least one meal being sent back and the guest eating their meal alone, or no meal at all. Long waits for dinner to be served. The root of the problems seem to lay within the kitchen. I must credit Martha Collins with staying on top of the problems and making extraordinary efforts to make it right with the offended guests. The waitstaff are the epitome of professionalism. The handle these problems with grace and remain positive. All the waitstaff are experienced and work well with management to handle and right any thing that may have gone a rye during a guest' meal. I do hope Martha is able to identify and correct the kitchen problems soon. I do recommend this restaurant. I think there are more positives then negatives awaiting you there.

We had a wonderful, romantic lunch, spontaneously planned at the last minute. The food, atmosphere and service was out-standing. We plan now to do this more often.
