Great Family Dining
We tried the Crab House for the first time when one of the "local" folks recommended it and we were not disappointed! We actually went back two more nights! Tried three different menu items and they were all excellent :) Relaxed atmosphere, comfortable, and worth the wait (it was busy for the July 4th weekend)...July 2014
Best Crab Cake Ever!
We are from NJ and wanted some authentic Maryland crabs... without the work... so crabcakes were the best idea. Being from the shore, I thought I knew a good crabcake when I saw one. The crabcakes from Assateague Crab House make all the others look like cheap imitations. These are literally a mounded scoop of lump meat with seemingly nothing holding it together, but somehow it stays together. DELICIOUS. We each ate two, but one would have been enough. For apps we had the crab stuffed mushrooms which were also all crab and had great flavor. The crab soup was delicious but they used frozen vegetables (I didn't care though, because the broth was spiced so well). The house salads were fresh, and the dinner rolls were soft and a nice side to everything else.
Although we did take out, I noticed the atmosphere when I picked up our order.... adorable! The decor is fun, whimsical, beachy, and bright. I would definitely eat-in. The staff that took my order and greeted me when I came in were very nice and quick.
If you want tons of spice and gourmet re-inventions of things (I'm a foodie- I understand!), this may not be your place. But if you want a boatload of delicious crab served simply and expertly, then get the crabcakes! We'll be back...July 2014
Will Be Back
We were recently here on a vacation and stopped in for dinner. A short wait later we were seated and were pleased with the service and the food. Our waiter was attentive even though he was working the whole room we were seated in and very pleasant. It was just a enjoyable eating experience all around. We will definitely be back in the future...June 2014
Best Crab House In Town
We can't say enough good things about this restaurant! Everything from the decor to the service to the amazing food makes Assateague Crab House one of the few places we eat at while visiting OC. We see no reason to go anywhere else! The all you can eat selections are delicious and plentiful. We especially like the lobster combo for two...a taste of everything. Great kid's menu too. Don't waste your time or money on the big box crab a day seafood places in town. Drive the extra few miles to eat here...you won't be disappointed!...June 2014
