Amazing food and service! The atmosphere is cozy, nostalgic and romantic. Parking is convenient and plentiful. The... facilities are clean and healthy. Well worth the drive from wherever you are.read more
The service was slow, the food was good. The Cole slaw was not good at all. They seated two of us in the middle room... full of big tables instead of a booth so the atmosphere was like being in a cafeteria setting. It looks so quaint on the outside but that middle area was like eating in a fast food restaurant. They needed more staff. I'd give it about a 3.5 overall.read more
One of the best seafood restaurants in town. They also have several yummy non-seafood food choices. The different types... of bread and small plate complimentary appetizers are a must have. Just thinking about the banana nut bread and the beans/corn appetizer makes me hungry again...and I just had a full meal! Service is awesome. The ambience makes you feel at home.read more
The food was good! First time there. The seafood au gratin was perfect! The seafood alfredo was good for a few bites,... but had an overpowering smoke flavor. The manager also couldn't tell us what the fish of the day was. But nonetheless, food was great overall.read more
Crab Louie’s has been my favorite restaurant for 30 years but no longer. We had out of state guests over the... Thanksgiving holiday. We took them to Crab Louie’s before they left; what a disappointment and embarrassment. The salmon was tasteless, the she crab soup was thick and pasty and had little crab. While there were many available tables in the main dining room., we were seated in the lower room which was uncomfortably cold. Yes, we asked for the heat to be turned on; I’m not sure if it was as we had to keep our jackets on. One positive, the sweet breads were good.
Sorry but we’ll try Bonefish in the future.read more
Food is made fresh in house, pleasant atmosphere and food is absolutely AMAZING!! Friendly owners as well as friendly... staff. If you want a wonderful experience please call and reserve tables by the cozy fireplaces, yes 3 different fireplaces you can enjoy!read more
I'm not the best person to review a seafood restaurant as I'm allergic, but I still enjoy eating here. My clan is not... allergic and they enjoyed salmon, haddock and scallops. I gather that the seafood stuffed mushrooms were also good. I enjoyed the Martha's vineyard salad with blackened chicken. They also served cornbread, apple cheddar bread, zucchini bread, banana nut bread with butter and three relishes prior to our main meal. All was very tasty.read more
Decidely average. The seafood was fresh. The bread was pretty good. Everything seemed a little under seasoned... though. I really wanted to love my meal, there were enough options on the menu that appealed to me that I had a little trouble picking one, but I left a little underwhelmed. Might give them another chance, the potential was there.read more
The food is delicious. Their introductor breads set the high bar for what is to come. The atmosphere is quiet with... rustic beauty surrounding the dining room. The big fireplace adds to the ambiance. I have been there many times but this time we were a party of four celebrating a birthday so it gave me an opportunity to see if others shared my very high opinion of the food. We each had She Crab Soup which is always perfect. I also had the she crab dip which was excellent. We had a variety of crab, scallops, shrimp, muscles in different dishes and everyone agreed each was excellent. Very strongly recommend Crab Louie's for a restaurant that will always meet and surpass your expectations!read more
My wife and I have been going to Crab Louie's Seafood Tavern since before we were married. This October 28th will be 17... years married and 25 years together. Nothing but the best service and quality of food! You might want to get a reservation though! That's just a testament to the quality they make sure you are given.read more
Our family had dinner at Crab Louie's this week and we have not been here for over 20 yrs. The food was very good, the... breads and small relish dishes were wonderful. The prices are very high for what you get. The service was excellent. The place is just lacking energy and just feels tired, and could use a re-grand opening or something. There were only 7-8 tables all evening, not sure how they do it.read more
I had the Norfolk seafood broil. It was delicious. My daughter had the scallop and shrimp which she enjoyed throughly.... They offer a sample of breads and all were tasty. This was not my first time here but they never fail to deliver. I would recommend this place.read more
We had 16 or 18 people on the night that we went to Crab Louie's Seafood Tavern and Kara took great care of us! The... four cornbread appetizer breads were fantastic, our drinks came quickly and were always full, and our entrees were amazing. Everyone got a lot of food and we all went home happy! I had the broiled Seafood combo which was fantastic. I hope to go here again because it was so good and there were so many things I wanted to try.read more
Incredible quality to the food in both taste and appearance. Very pricey–all menu options tended to be $30 and up.... Not very large portions served, either. Very dim lighting and could use something to liven it up a bit. Neat history behind the building, which originally dates back to the 18th century. Overall a very exquisite place to dine at.read more
Excellent experience every time we come.
Compimentary sweet cornbread is bursting with flavor.
Today I tried... something new and got the Dijon grilled chicken breast w. Baked potato.
Food was fresh and hot. Taste was great.
Our server was top notch and completely took care of us from the time we sat down until we left.
Highly recommended!read more
The food and the service make Crab Louie a 5 Star Restaurant. The Oysters Rockefeller is not an appetizer it’s an... experience. Coming from Maryland my expectations were low. But Louie’s is proof that you can find great seafood elsewhere. Great place! We will be back!read more
Yes, this is an older restaurant. The menu doesn’t change weekly with the latest in gastronomy fads, and there’s no... electronic light show with dinner. But if you like sizable portions of good food then you’re in luck. Every server I’ve come in contact with has been personable and knowable about the menu, the food’s very good, and again, portions are notable.read more
Great experience!! I made a reservation for me and the love of my life in the last minute. We were in the mood for... seafood and had gone to a different place "Something Shell" but they couldn't accommodate a two top even though I saw 3 tables open and ready but whatever. Came to Crab Louie, loved every second of it. The hostess were wonderful, the server wax amazing, they bring you fresh baked variations of bread loafs which ate crazy delicious! Highly recommend this place to anybody. Thank you CL for making our date night perfect!read more
Absolutely delicious. Our waitress was attentive and professional. She explained some items on the menu. The drinks... were strong. We had she crab soup and stuffed mushrooms, both were delicious. The entrees were perfect. The temperature, the seasoning, the flavor, the portions....fresh seafood and all wonderful. I can't wait to go back and try new items on the menu!read more
