We had the fish in salt crust and the stone crab - both were excellent. The service was outstanding - friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend.

What a lovely location in St. Armand's Circle. The pianist provided nice background music and had the perfect touch which is not an easy fete for a musician. Nice wine, excellent seafood entrees combined with great service makes this restaurant a great choice for dinner! Highly recommended!

We had another reliable and high quality dinner at Crab and Fin tonight. It's a winning combination: delicious and only fresh seafood, creatively prepared; reservations taken so we can be seated when we arrive ( even just for our small group of 3) and an excellent wine list by the glass and bottle. Our Calamari app was delicious-- such very... More

After trying several other restaurants in the area, we were delighted to land at Crab & Fin. The menu, wine selection by the glass, service, and food preparation were all excellent. Our seafood choices were all expertly prepared and impeccably fresh. Service was amiable and skillful. Moreover, this excellent meal was the same cost or less than poor to mediocre... More

Arrived at 5 pm and was seated by a very rude Maitre D . He was not very friendly for such an upscale restaurant. Our waitress was very sweet. It was very noisy , not a very relaxing atmosphere. Got the Martha's Vineyard Salad which was excellent. The crab cakes with fingerling Potatoes and Broccoli were good too. My husband... More
