I too have witnessed his pug on the bar! I was so mad I couldn't eat my overpriced meal because of his filthy dog! When it was brought to his drunken attention, he kicked us out.

buffoon is quite an understatement.

What a waste of a space! Could have been nice..

I am surprised at the negative comments here. I have eaten at the crab house 3 times this year. First time I had fried grouper & scallops with fries. It was good, not great but good. The last 2 times I have had the sushi. Wonderful! The drinks are ok, the prices are very good. The atmosphere is nice. The restaurant itself is gorgeous. Check it out yourself, I'll be going back soon.

Considering the complaints here and to the PGBBB, I do not see PG letting them stay there. Then again PG has made worse bonehead mistakes.

My family dined here twice. The food was below average. The crab cakes were mostly bread. The salmon was overcooked and tasteless. We will not eat here again. It's a shame as the location is nice. We can only hope for a Bonefish Grill to come into town.

I don't think I've ever read such horrible reviews. Based on the reviews alone, they should be out of business. I myself, would never eat there.

I hate the freakin' place not because of the food(never ate there, never will), but just it's mere existence. I used to fish on the pier regularly. Now the only decent time to go is during hours the place is closed. Really, who wants to fish while there are 200 people sitting above you breathing down your neck. Then after they eat they decide to come down and ask 64 questions. It gets tedious answering the same questions several times an hour. I liked it a lot better when there was only a sign there.

I wish I would have seen this column BEFORE we ate there last Saturday night.

We had been wanting to try it for about a year. The building looks so nice and it's right there in the park. What a beautiful spot for a seafood restaurant.

The food was bad and the service was worse. Sadly, we would have been better off going to Applebees, Chili's or anythng on that order.

It stinks to get your hopes up, just to be let down.

That was our first and last time there.

I hate the place being there . Never went there to eat nor to I plan on it . It ruined the fishing from the pier my boyfriend and myself use to fish from the pier all the time almost daily and was hardly ever bothered now you have all kinds of snobby ass people that have no freaking idea about fishing wanting to come down and ask so many questions it ruins the serenity not to mention if your not fishing and you see someone that is its kinda bothersome to be ask a million questions...

I had dinner there Friday night and unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. Some items for our party were under cooked and others were over cooked. The only upside to the experience was our waitress Donna. She had a delightful personality and was very attentive to our needs. I might give the place a second chance but would definitely request Donna.
