We had dinner at The Crab House again this year while on vacation. The food was delicious and was topped off by a drink called the Orange Crush. I recommend this place very highly. They also have a all you can eat crab dinner.

This is a must stop when in the area! A very casual setting by the water. Great service, food and atmosphere. Will be going back for more! Pricing was very reasonable and a great selection of alcohol drinks.

If you go before 730pm don't forget your sunglasses. Outdoor scenic seating. Great quality food and excellent service. Casual. Fair prices. Very family friendly.

We ate at the crab house on Thursday July 12. We were a party of 12, the waitress was very nice. The food was good I had the garlic crabs (recommend) the atmosphere was good.

Been here many times. The atmosphere is amazing. Prices are a little high but what you would expect from the Jersey Shore. Love my crabs, so its worth it to me.
