River Crab - St. Clair
So we went to the River Crab just before the Governor ordered no sit down service in restaurants. On what probably would have been a busy night, we had the place to ourselves.
They have a nice wine selection which gave us some nice choices for dinner. The menu had some good seafood choices as well as traditional American fare.
The view of the St. Clair River is wonderful. The seating is oriented to take advantage of the view.
The prices are probably higher than other restaurants in the area but on par for fine dining in Metro Detroit.
Food was great. Service was average, mainly that there aren't enough servers. The waitress was good, but she was covering too many tables to be excellent. But, isn't that the way it is everywhere in the U.S. now? Don't know if owners can't find good staff or they are preserving profit margins and establishing new norms of service.
The River Crab is always a special treat. The entire staff makes us feel welcome. The chef does a great job. Special thanks to Rhonda!
I brought my mother here for her birthday brunch, it was fabulous, David was an excellent waiter. There was so many great things in the brunch buffet! Will definitely be back!
We had a family brunch with 10 people. Food was great and best of all our server, Cheryl, was excellent!!!!
Never a bad meal and always excellent service!
We had an amazing early dinner celebrating my fathers birthday! Service by Debbie was wonderful!
It was very good. I would recommend the buffet to everyone!!
Great dinner. We had the steak and lobster tail along with with firecracker shrimp and scallops. Our server was very attentive
Excellent food, service and ambiance. We generally choose The River Crab for special family events.
Ambiance always good...we request Tony ( the waiter ) - always friendly, knowledgeable...great at his job!
5 year anniversary celebrating
Enjoyed our first visit and are planning on going back. The food was excellent, the waiter was fantastic, and the view of the river added to the ambience. Highly recommend.
Food just okay. Waiter was good but not what you would expect for the price of the dinner. Rate as 5/10. Just okay
River Crab is a destination restaurant with great food and an engaging staff set on the St. Clair River. They take their business seriously and it shows in the five-star performance.
Went for brunch ($25 each) with my husband.Not enough selection for the price. Could have been better.
My fiancee and I waited for a table, 30 min after our reservation. Once we're seated, we had a wonderful waitress and a decent time. But it was pretty loud and while the food was ok, I don't think it was worth the price we paid for it. Overall the experience wasn't terrible, just not worth the price we paid for it.
Had 7:30 reservation but weren't seated until 8:00 pm. Restaurant was very busy so the wait was understandable. Didn't get drinks until about 5 minutes before the food was served. Lost out on a second drink order. Food was very good and waitress was very polite.
The food was delicious and our server was efficient and charming. We love going to the River Crab!
David gives excellent service...
Valentines on the 15th, delicious!
A wonderful and very tasty menu, at a fair price for the quality and service you receive.
We went to River Crab for Valentine’s Day and were very pleased. The service was great and the food was excellent. They made accommodations such as not wanting bread as the opening appetizer and substituted it for cucumbers instead. We will definitely go back here again.
Had a great time. Great ambiance, great food, nice scenic view. Will definitely be back
The staff and food is always amazing. We loved our food but our server was not the best so that was disappointing. We will definitely go back, it is one of our local favorites.
Fantastic food and service! Will definitely be back!
Way to expensive, for the portions. Dynamite scallops were awesome but you only get 5. Rip off!
Valentine’s Day dinner out. Server was very inexperienced and wasn’t knowledgeable about wine or food specials. Not that attentive to our needs. Served my oysters without cocktail sauce, lemon or seafood fork. Didn’t offer the pepper milk with our salad/soup or main entree. A more seasoned waitress was working nearby, and we wished we would have had her as our server. After dinner we went into the bar. Server was very good an attentive. The gal at the piano was very pleasant and entertaining.
Wonderful Valentine’s Day specials and great service! Best meal ever.
Great deal......luncheon specials delicious, bountiful. Great value.
We have dined her several times and have never been disappointed with the service or the foiod...the view isn’t bad either
no review comments to report wuit forcing me to in order to fill out rest of survey
We had a nice dinner. We chose the early bird dinner menu. All good. My husband said the crab cake should have had a little more lump crab but otherwise good. Service was great but we were early so there were only 4 tables filled. Overall would definitely go back!
We went to celebrate a Birthday and had a fantastic experience from our start in the bar area to the finish in the restaurant overlooking the St. Clair River. The bartender was attentive and suggested a cucumber martini, which was wonderful. Rhonda, our server was outstanding. She was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu. We enjoyed our escargot and shrimp appetizers. Our steaks were delicious along with our favorite Martha's Vineyard salad. All in all, it was a top notch dining experience!
It was an amazing experience! The food and service was wonderful! A bit loud though.
Very nice place to eat on the river, great seating through out the restaurant. Everything on the menu has been excellent. Highly recommend.
Nice greeting when we arrived.
And the food was delicious. Making my birthday a success.
The restaurant was very busy but we were quickly taken to a table. We selected a booth which was large and made us feel away from the activity. The waitstaff (Jasmine) was attentive and checked in with us appropriately. The food was outstanding. I had the Applejack Sea Bass. Very delicious and served with rice. My friend ordered the red Snapper and it was also delicious. The fish was cooked perfectly. The blueberry bread pudding is awesome as was the chocolate lava cake. The soft and soothing tinkling of the piano keys really added to the ambience.
We had a delicious meal for my significant others Birthday. The only thing I would suggest is having the lights dimmed for 6pm reservations.it was way too bright at our table. Our server was wonderful and always looking to meet our needs. We will definitely come back.
Excellent service and meal as always. Jasmine was an excellent server.
