My husband & I split an order of oysters, the crabcake dinner & a bowl of clam chowder . Everything we had was very good. The cakes were thick & full of good flavor. The chowder was excellent. We had mango,sangriato drink and for dessert, the chocolate mousse cake. The atmosphere was fun the place was clean. We'll be back!

I came in from Michigan with my girlfriends for a weekend in Chicago. Our 2nd night in we went to King Crab. I had the CrabCake sandwich with fries. Unbelievable! My gf's both had the Shrimp Po Boy sandwiches which looked good to. They said the enjoyed it but didn't finish. This was our favorite spot for the weekend and would recommend to anyone out or in town!

I ate here with my friend after he spoke highly of it. For starters, I ordered the Lobster Bisque soup. It was amazing. Add lemon to it - it's even better. I ordered the Jumbo Sea Scallops for a main dish. They we're cooked PERFECTLY. Each scallop was like butter melting in my mouth. Service was great, it was crowded when we ate but our waiter was attentive. Will be going back. There aren't many cozy/affordable seafood restaurants in Chicago. I enjoyed King Crab.

I came here and sat at the bar for a ball game. Oysters we're awesome and the Lobster Bisque soup is to die for. Used a $25 off spend $65 coupon. Very cozy atmosphere - I will be recommending to my buddies!

The tables were very small, and they made us sit in the bar area even though they had a whole empty room with nicer tables. The food was overpriced for the quality. The server was polite but not quick to respond to our requests.

Since moving to the neighborhood in June have always wanted to stop in here; finally did and I honestly should have kept putting it off. Called ahead, were told of specials that weren't available when asking our waitor. I had snow crab legs (bland, overcooked) and my girlfriend had crab cakes (could easily have been purchased at Dominick's) and needless to say a disappointment. I'm usually skeptical of bad reviews (as people are more inclined to complain vs. praise a restaurant) but this place is one to avoid.

I was very surprised by the delicious seafood at King Crab. The crab cakes and oysters are excellent. We usually overlook this restaurant when were are in the neighborhood, but we will definitely go again. We sat at the bar because we had theater tickets and wanted to get in an out quickly. However, we had ta liitle trouble getting our bill.
