Almost enjoyed them too much...but the lump crab meat Crab cake my wife had was the best she'd ever had in a long time. NO filler....just as promoted....More

We enjoyed a quiet dinner. Great food and service. A lot of selections and options and all were very good. Relishes and sweet breads for starters. Oysters and seafood were fresh and prepared excellently. Recommend this for the traveler or local.

What is not to love about Crab Louie's - the breads are wonderful, the meal choices are great and not expensive. Service was attentive too. All around, a great lunchtime treat!!

Great place that you will miss if you are not looking for it. It has become our "go to" place for seafood.

Crab Louie's should be fine for your celebration. I would also recommend the Boathouse. The boathouse offers the view and some distractions/ attractions for the kids.
