I'm in Midlothian on business from FL. I always try to find something "local" for dinner rather than one of the chains. I write reviews where they are due.
I found Crab Louie's Seafood Tavern online - the menu looked great so I figured I would give it a try. It is situated on Midlothian Turnpike in an historic building. I already had an idea from the online menu of what I wanted. I had the Butternut Crab Bisque and it was to die for. The soup had a touch of curry and the crab was generous. Loved it! They offered homemade relishes and breads - all that I tried were yummy. The included salad was nicely done rather than just a salad mix. For dinner I had the Crab Cake & Latke combination. The crab cake was CRAB - not a lot of filler as many places offer. The latke was very interesting (crabmeat, shrimp and lobster mixed with onions and fresh herbs broiled and topped with a sweet red pepper honey sauce) and delicious as well. I finished with Chocolate Brandy Mousee (yes dessert as it sounded so good). It was delicious although a little heavy - I'm used to mousse being very light.
I'm here for another night & I think I'll try it again. Yes, it was that good. So, if you are in the area & haven't tried Crab Louie's I highly recommend it!

Been rippin' people off for around 20 years now - there's gotta be something good going on to still be alive all these years. They've found a formula for success that seems to be working.

I am shocked to see such negative reviews. The food, service, and atmosphere have always been impeccable in the dozens of times I've eaten here. Virginia food and service at its finest. the relishes and breads are a great touch. my family is highly varied in ages and tastes, and very demanding, and the restaurant meets every request. And I just found out it may be haunted? Couldn't be better.
