This restaurant is in a shopping plaza. Nice inside, not luxury, just cozy. The have a bar area as well. Crab cakes are tasty and filling. If you are hungry I recommend 2. Definitively a keeper

Our first time here. We travel all the time, I am working in the NE now and wanted to learn more about "where to go" and "where not to go"... This place is a "where to go" without a doubt.

Lisa, took care of us. All her recommendations were spot on, way to go Lusa, thank you so much.

Coming back Sunday for the $1.25 oysters, can't wait...

This restaurant situated in a commercial center is of human size.
Decor is nothing to write about or remember. A very wide menu with several fish, pasta, salads, meat , vegetarian fares.
Excellent seafood - we had scallops and mahi-mahi, very good salads. Deserts were very good. But overall the thing we will remember most was the size of the drinks. A very generous portion of alcoholic beverage in every glass. Service was very good too. A very pleasant meal

My husband and I had dinner at the Blue Crab Grill last night. We both had the crab bisque, which was creamy, bland and had a moderate amount of crab. He then had the pork ribs and crab cake. He said that the ribs were very good and the taste of the crab cake was fine, although there are other places in the area that serve better crab cakes. I had mussels diavolo; linguine was added to the dish for another $6. It was very good: there were a lot of mussels, which were well-cooked and tender and the sauce worked well with the linguine, which was perfectly cooked. There is a reasonably extensive bar, beer and wine list with a variety of prices. There is enough space between the tables/booths so that you don't feel cramped and the space helped keep the noise level such that conversation was easy. The clientele was primarily families and couples; this is not a student hangout. Finally, in a town where parking is a challenge, there is no shortage of free parking because the restaurant is in a strip mall. This is definitely a good place to eat in Newark!
