4 of us went for lunch and ordered seafood, seafood and more seafood plus deserts. Everything was excellent. This place is not inexpensive, but worth every penny spent.

If you like seafood, skip Bonefish and go to Crab Louis's. It is a marvelous setting in an old restaurant building and serves fantastic seafood. Whenever we have a craving for top of the line seafood, this is where we go. Great ambiance, excellent service...More

If you like "low-country" style seafood, this is your place. If you prefer the Maryland style seafood, probably not your first choice. Lots of fried seafood, good flavor, and good portions.

Met siblings here for lunch. A nice location, no doubt. Server seemed a bit aloof, but helpful. The menu was difficult to read, small print, poor light. I had soup and sandwich with hot tea. All very tasty, cost $15.00 plus tip. No beef or...More

I think the usual lunch hours apply, as far as I know.
Looking for a place for diner for my family next sat May 21, my daughter will receive her master in public health so want to celebrate a bit I will also have a 6 an 14 year old in the party and a total of 5 adults as well. Trying to find someplace that will have a menu to make everyone happy , but a nice atmosphere.

Crab Louie's should be fine for your celebration. I would also recommend the Boathouse. The boathouse offers the view and some distractions/ attractions for the kids.
