I grew up in the area, and always remember going to the River Crab for Sunday Brunch. We came back for a visit, and I made my reservations a month early to ensure a good table with a view. I was not disappointed, like so many times when I revisit a childhood place that I have fond memories of. It... More

The Sunday brunch is awesome! The nightly dinner menu is always the best in the area. The seafood is always fresh.

I am avoiding this restaurant because of extremely high prices, and very small portions. Although the food is good, I refuse to pay out what they are asking. If you want to throw away money, this is the place.

Celebrated my birthday here last night. It was beyond excellent! I had the OYSTERS ROCKEFELLER appetizer, the bernaise on them was utter perfection. I also had the APPLEJACK SEA BASS which was grilled perfectly. We also had the COCONUT MACADAMIA SHRIMP, SALMON ROCKEFELLER, & WASABI PEA ENCRUSTED TUNA. All were marvelously prepared and tasted awesome. If your in the area... More

Food was awesome, as good as the view along the St Clair River. Good beers and excellent wine selection. Attentive service, and prices are very reasonable.

Beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon drive around Anchor bay and along the St. Clair River up to Port Huron. On the way home we stopped at River Crab. The atmosphere was lovely, casual but upscale. It wasn't very crowded as we had stopped by early, around 4:00pm. The hostess was very pleasant and sat us by the window overlooking the river.... More
