Food was awesome, as good as the view along the St Clair River. Good beers and excellent wine selection. Attentive service, and prices are very reasonable.

Beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon drive around Anchor bay and along the St. Clair River up to Port Huron. On the way home we stopped at River Crab. The atmosphere was lovely, casual but upscale. It wasn't very crowded as we had stopped by early, around 4:00pm. The hostess was very pleasant and sat us by the window overlooking the river.... More

I haven't found their food to be anything but ok. Not impressed. It's been a very long time since I heard good things about their food. Probably won't go there again

The River Crab has always been a special-occasion destination for my husband and me. My latest visit was for a friend's birthday, and it did not disappoint.

My shrimp and artichoke pasta was okay, the bread and Moscato were delicious. Husband had good scallops with maple bacon brussel sprouts. We had a sweet server, and enjoyed the river view.

My wife and I and two other couples went to the River Crab Seafood Restaurant at the Blue Water Inn for Sunday dinner. Even though we come from London, Ontario - an hour and a half drive – we have been here many times in the past and find the drive is well worth it. We arrived for our 4:30... More

We had dinner here this evening. The service was prompt, the staff were polite and happy and we were sat at a table with a view of the beautiful St. Clair River. We were given a complimentary hit but n basket with butter and salmon pate and we split a Martha's Vineyard salad. I ordered Maryland Crabcake dinner and my... More

My husband and I went for a weekend getaway to Port Huron. Friends had suggested if we were in the mood for seafood, the River Crab was the place to come and they were right!! We enjoyed the scallops as an appetizer and then salmon and potato crusted whitefish as our entrees. Dessert of a hot fudge sundae topped off... More

If you want fish, eat here. Great fish, drinks, wine list, and desserts! Extensive menu and great happy hour specials for reasonable prices. Concerts on the deck during summer and beautiful view of St. Clair River. Sunday brunch is outstanding with many choices. Staff is friendly and manager, Martha, is so accommodating and down to earth. She will always take... More
