The only positive thing I can say was the service was very good. We were the only ones in at the time, but it was only 11 in the morning. I ordered the mussels in tomato sauce.. The taste like it had come out of a tomato soup . My husband ordered the crab cake which had plenty of crab... More

Went here because of a groupon deal and the food was very good but when the bill came it was in a lump crab can. I inquired about the the crab meat and was informed that because of cost related to fresh caught crab they import canned crab from South East Asia. I didn't know to ask before hand, we... More

The brunch was amazing! We had to wait to be seated but it was well worth the wait. The selections were plentiful, we were not disappointed.

We had a great server - despite how busy it was, he brought our food and drinks quickly. The experience was fun - recommend the funnel cakes for dessert.

This review is not on the Crabhouse, but on the Captain James Landing Restaurant. This review is written with great dismay, by a long term customer. My wife and I last dined at the Captain on 2.28.2017 and the hostess was great (as usual), but the server was subpar. He took our drink order and then returned without the drinks... More

I found Captain James on GROUPON and so I purchased $80 food credit for $38. Their prices are very fair. We had the lobster mac & cheese stuffed soft pretzel, the special of the night mussels, the signature crab cake entree & the seafood platter with lobster. EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING!!! I have never been more satisfied with seafood from start... More

Two nights ago I took a party of 12 to Captain James Restaurant. Now, I must be clear that THIS was at their RESTAURANT establishment and not the CRABHOUSE across the street. Our group was looking for a varied menu of seafood and non-seafood so, as organizer I had done research on the restaurant operation as Chesapeake Bay crab houses... More

My birthday dinner was amazing. Stuffed lobster was great! The restaurant was extremely crowded, but the waitstaff was on point and very nice! Will definitely return!
