Located next to the Mercado Shopping Center , The Crab House is an upscale seafood eatery dedicated to preparing some of the freshest and best-tasting seafood in Orlando. Don't be fooled by its rustic charm and casually-attired wait staff: The Crab House offers top-notch seafood at comparatively high prices. Appetizers include a wide variety of steamed crabs and other shellfish, while dinners range from the fresh catch to the eatery's namesake, lots and lots of crabs from garlic to blue, Alaskan king to stone crabs. Those varieties are quite different, so don't be shy about asking for an explanation from the friendly help.

By far the WORST seafood experience I ve ever had. I went last night with my wife who is still in bed due to being awake all night throwing up. The food sat in the bottom of my stomach all night long. The service was horrible. IF anybody gives this place more than a single star, they are boosting the image. its horrible and needs to be put out of business.
Today was my very 1st time going to the Crab House and Last time going. I ordered the Baltimore Platter and Madrid Pasta w/Crab Cake. Both were disgusting. Captain D's is better than Crab house and they are a WAY less expensive. I paid $30 for both items but it tasted like it was worth $10. Don't bother going here and wasting your money, not worth the time.
My daughter wanted shrimp and this place was a short walk from the clarion inn at lake buena vista. I walk in the door and the hostess ushers me over to a table of people. I wasnt with them...so she apologizes and sits us down at a table close to them. It only had one place setting. The other place setting was never given to us the rest of the time there (and it was asked for...so...). FAIL on service. To make things even sadder it wasn't even that busy!
Because of the area you will pay $19 to $25 for a plate of food. It's not worth $8. It looks better on the description than it tastes. Very poor food quality. Granted I didn't eat every dish but judging from the other ratings I think I'm onto something...
Stay away. There are other restaurants in the area ( hooters, olive garden, amici's , etc.) to go to with good pedigrees.
OMG! NASTY!!! I haven't had this terrible of a meal in a long time! I am not the type to complain, in fact, we didn't even say anything to the waiter. The crab was soooo dry and gross! Both the crab and shrimp had wayyy too much seasoning or something! Maybe to hide how dry the crab was? The service was horrible too! I will never go back and I will tell everyone I know! Ewwwwwwww!
Two stars only because our server was very attentive and polite. The food was terrible. All of it. Wilted salad bar, small portions, greasy pasta. etc. Even the water tasted lousy. I'm suspicious of most of the favorable reviews- Especially when the writer 'travels to Florida' to visit this restaurant. Yuck! Avoid.
