We've been wanting to try this place for forever. During our recent vacation we finally went. There were 4 of us in our party. Hostess was pleasant and seated us right away. Our waitress took our drink order and quickly returned with our drinks. We ordered appetizers and dinner (which included a salad). Appetizers were delish, and the two that ordered entrees were pleased with their meal choice. However, the two that chose the crab cakes were very disappointed. The cakes were very meaty, almost no shell and no filler, but they had absolutely no flavor at all. If I want crab cakes in OC, I'm going to Coins - which we did two days later. I ordered the crab cake and wasn't disappointed. Sorry, Original Crabcake Factory. Everything else was wonderful, but crab cakes - not so much.

Thanks so much for trying us out. We have had the same recipe for 22 years. Most would disagree but we value your opinion. Glad you loved everything else and it was wonderful despite the average rating we received. Regards!

Be sure to try their signature crab Bloody Mary. Service was quick, friendly staff. Great selection of seafood and for those who want something else.

I have been coparing Crab Cakes all over town, and The Crab Cake Factory's is simply the best. Great food all around but the best asset is the people that work there...
