Crab Spot Reviews & Testimonials
Best sea food I've had, the staff is very pleasant and the ambiance is on point. I recommend this place to everyone who loves crabs and lobster. The crab spot is theeee crab spot.

Came here with a male friend last week and enjoyed the staff, drinks, and food. The Norwegian Salmon with mash potatoes was amazing. The crab legs were steamed to perfection. My friend had steak (he doesn't eat much seafood) with french fries and couldn't shut up about how good and tender his entrée was. We were the last to leave the restaurant and had small talk with the staff who were really patient, down to earth, and kind to us. I will be back to try other dishes.

Went here on a Sunday night and the tv was playing football and the crowd was great. The bartender was awesome and gave me buybacks on every 3 drinks. The drinks were also reasonably priced. I ate at the bar and had the wings which were pretty good and something called "fresh maryland crab special" which was delicious. Definitely going to come back!!! -David G. Brooklyn, NY
Finally checked out the new Crab Spot Restaurant and was really impressed. This place is the perfect combination of fun and delicious seafood, friendly staff, and inviting decor.
Upon walking in, we were greeted by the friendly manager who helped us to our table. The menu is really impressive with many interesting and appetizing selections (the menu has pictures of all of the entrees and they all look delectable). I was in the mood for crab or shrimp and asked for a recommendation. The manager suggested either the Shrimp Trio or the Alaskan Waters Selection. While the Shrimp Trio looked great, I was really in the mood to try one of the restaurant's signature "pots" and went for the Alaskan.
The steaming pot of seafood came out in a timely manner and contained a combination of dungeness crab, snow crab, spicy sausage, muscles, red potatoes, and corn on a cob. I chose the old bay sauce which added a great zing. The seafood was succulent and was exactly what I was hoping for. The corn on a cob was also delicious :) I washed my dinner down with a couple Radeberger off the tap and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
This place is interesting because the decor is a perfect blend of high-end restaurant and fun seafood spot, meaning it lends itself well either to a fun night out with friends or a date. You can get down and dirty with a bib on or have more of a "standard" dinner experience, depending on what you order. The staff is friendly, attentive, and eager to help you navigate the menu.
I highly recommend this place and look forward to going back soon. Any suggestions for new dishes to try will be highly appreciated :) -Kon Y. Brooklyn, NY
I was really impressed with this place, the food was spot on,(ordered: grilled baby octopus and the crab royale) fresh and tasty, service with a smile, great atmosphere for a crab shack. Charlie, congrats you have a winner here, this is going to be a neighborhood staple! - Greg G. Brooklyn, NY
Pretty good. My party of four had plenty to eat including several appetizers and an assortment of main dishes. Shrimp dishes were all good. I had the shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. Our table had two crab pots also. Portions were pretty big. Drinks and service were great. Dessert was surprisingly delicious. I'll be back! - Stephen B. Brooklyn, NY
Allison G. and I visited Crab Spot last night, wanting to try something new and special for a rather special birthday -- it was impeccable. Great service, awesome ambiance - server gave us a free round of drinks AND a free dessert when he found out it was my birthday.
For years, I had thought I didn't like clam chowder, but sampled Allie's and loved it - would def order next time. We shared the garlic steamed mussels app, and she ordered the parmesean crusted tilipia, while I got the New Orleans style shrimp and salmon combo - both were perfect. We may have a new favorite seafood stop in the slope! -Aly W. Brooklyn, NY
I live in the neighborhood, I have no affiliation with the restaurant, and I signed up with Yelp just to write this review. I love the Crab Spot! They must have really pulled it together after their first few (troubled) weeks open, because when I went there for the first time in early January, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. I've already been back a second time, and it was just as good!
I love crab legs, and there are few restaurants in New York to find them (I'm looking at you, Brooklyn Fish Camp). Now there is a place a few blocks away from my apartment where I can get my snow crab fix!
Support the Crab Spot! -Emily F. Brooklyn, NY
Came here with a group of friends on saturday night to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our experience overall was great!! The food was delicious, decor was beautiful,and the staff was very polite & professional!
The restaurant was packed out when we got there, but they seated us promptly. I started out with some ceviche and garlic mussels as an appetizer. Both dishes were very fresh and tasty! I then had the snow crabs as a main course, which took a little while to come out, BUT WAS WELL WORTH IT!! it was amazing! the manager came over and gave our group a round of drinks on the house to make up for the short wait. - Phyllis V.

Love, love, love this place. Charlie, the host who welcomed us, made us feel at home even though we were sheepish about taking our kids with us to a decent restaurant impromptu-style following a particularly rough afternoon of errand running. The service, the food and the warm atmosphere created by everyone who works there has made this place an instant favorite for us. -Alison K. Brooklyn, NY
I was really excited to try out Crab spot, since I am a seafood lover! Besides the amazing service, the food was fresh and amazing. The ambience was great and cozy with amazing decor. We really enjoyed it and have officially made this new place our favorite! Cant wait to go back! -Inna B. Brooklyn, NY
