Chandler's Crabhouse is famous for their crab cakes and they deserve that reputation. Their 1/2 lb Dungeness Crab Cake is truly the best. We split one and each had a salad, and it was plenty! The ambiance and service were very nice, and we enjoyed...More

good service good food just a bit pricey for a family outing maybe would reserve this for a special occasion with your favorite person you have to pay for parking vegetarian meal was nothing special--pasta with red sauce-- would not recommend it

In a nutshell the food is way overpriced. When a light dinner for 2 is $135.00 that's too much. Also, they automatically add on a 20% tip so there is no incentive to provide any type of good service. The health rating was one notch...More

Chose the restaurant due to lack of options near the hotel. Food very expensive starting at $35.00 an entree and all ala carte. Got the bill with a surprising 22% "Service charge" - I guess this is supposed to replace the tip but no way...More

A small party room on the waterfront; very private. Excellent wait staff; food served in a very delectable taste. I would suggest Mimosa's,Crab Benedict, and Creme Brulee'. Thank You Chandlers Crab Shack!!

They took my wife and me on a Saturday night without a reservation -- which we appreciated -- when our original destination turned out to have flown town. The menu was varied, the food we ordered was quite plentiful and tasty, and the service was...More
