THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS City Crab & Seafood Company Restaurant Review

: No serious seafood aficionado would choose City Crab as the place to go for seafood delicacies (if they could, they'd probably head to some out-of-the-way fish shack in Maryland or Maine). But this huge, bi-level seafood restaurant manages to attract boisterous crowds night after night. The décor is vaguely nautical and timeless with checkerboard linoleum floors, diner-style bar stools, and tongue-and-groove wood walls. The menu features crabs (of course), including jumbo stone crabs, soft-shell crabs, and Alaskan king crabs. There are also market fish selections like salmon, mahi mahi, snapper and swordfish that are best prepared simply grilled.
