We went in with a large group. If you do go in don't go for the fresh seafood. Not that great. That being said everyone that had a seafood alfredo type dish was happy with the food. If you do find your self there stick with that.

Sat on the patio on a slow night. Food was great, but it took quite a while to get to us and the service was super slow. We weren't in a hurry, but if we had been, it would have been annoying.

We passed this restaurant so many times and being a seafood lover I wanted to try it. We finally did, but we weren't impressed. I had the stuffed lobster and my husband had the lobster mac-n-cheese. I couldn't identify the seasonings in the stuffed lobster, but they weren't flavorful to me. My husband wasn't overly impressed with his entree either.... More

I was expecting EXCELLENT Crab legs but i've had better. Service and food was alright. Alot of families look like they enjoyed their meal but it wasn't all that to me.

We went for dinner at the Cravin' Crabs the first day we arrived in St Thomas for it is close to the Marriott Frenchman's Cove where we stayed. We didn't go for the seafood bucket with crab legs, clams, etc. instead we ordered Manhattan clam chowder, calamari for appetizer. For entrees I had a grilled tuna salad, and my husband... More

We went with the mixed platter, a little of everything. Good amount of crab, would have liked more mussels, clams, & shrimp! Way too many crawfish, I'd say they were 1/2 the platter. It wasn't bad, but we've had better at Joe's Crab Shack

I visit St Thomas every year, and have done so for the past 37 years or so. I have some favorite restaurants on St Thomas (Mafolie, Victor's New Hideout, Hook Line & Sinker, and a few others), but like to try the new restaurants that have opened since my list visit. I am frequently disappointed, but just the opposite occured... More

We came here with a large group the day after our friends' wedding. We got the half mixed platter and everything was delicious, all of the other food looked good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Only downside: they would not split the checks for a large party (10 or more). But the lobster was delicious so no stars lost... More
