Service was slow, food was cold.........it was towards the end of night but Service and food should be as good at closing time as it is when restaurant opens.

Eight of us and service was perfect. Everything from chowder to a crab feast for two. Didn't hear any complaints. It is fairly pricey though. Eight of us, almost $600.

We stopped in for appetizers and dessert. I had the crab cake; it was tastier than average, but not great and the portion was small for the price. My partner had a very good creme brulee. We sat in the lounge, having arrived around 8 pm on a Sunday. The restaurant was very quiet. It is a place where you... More

Terrific food at a reasonable price for a higher end restaurant. Ahi tuna was great. Crab cakes are amazing. Highly recommend it. They add 20% gratuity to the bill automatically now. Not a big fan of that but we had a great waiter.

Went for a business diner with customer and the place was a success. The atmosphere is classy without being overly pompous. The food is nice and fresh NorthWest seafood (though they also serve steak) which is tastily prepared. There is a view of the lake which is great, especially on a nice day. I would take business guest there again

We had dinner at the Chandler's Crabhouse Saturday. The ambience was great. The view of Union Lake was spectacular. I ordered the crab cake dinner and it was outstanding. Most other places the crab cakes have too much fat in it. This one was great.
