The best crab peeve around for miles. Worth it! James is an excellent host. The flavor will make dinner conversation nonexistent (too busy eating). So stop reading this and make a reservation!

We go to J Crab House every year on our annual golf trip. The food is fantastic and the service is even better. James is always great to interact with and will always take pictures of your group and send it to you. The restaurant is very unassuming, being located in a strip center. But, trust me, you'll be putting this on your list of best places to eat at while in the Orlando area!!

J Crab House is the best seafood restaurant experience I've had.

What an amazing experience! A gem that we were lucky enough to find on vacation with our 3 littles. Service was fantastic, as was the family style serving. We shared calamari and the #6 combo. Left with happy tummies and a satisfied palate. Would highly recommend! Thanks again J Crab House!

The service and food at this place are second to none! The personal touch that J and his mother provide is something you can’t find in many restaurants in today’s world. The unique flavor and spices of the sauce on the entrees will knock your socks off. We highly recommend this establishment if you are in the Orlando area…it’s a must!

Hands down— the best seafood experience ever! We found J Crab 3 years ago, while vacationing in Orlando. Since then, it’s become a regular spot for us every time we visit. Their signature dish is a “Seafood Boil” — made from a “secret family recipe” known only to owners J and his Mom, Thelma. You can choose anything from clams and mussels to King Crab legs and lobster. If you prefer a fried option, try the Shrimp - they’re huge and delicious. The restaurant is cozy, clean, and beautifully decorated. Be sure to make reservations a few days in advance! Enjoy!

We had a fantastic time and a delicious meal. very tentative and kind service, we had 3 kids with us and they were so busy colouring their little hats the adults had time to relax! The food was fresh and full of flavour- we actually had second servings of crab it was so good and we are a picky bunch when it comes to seafood. The calamari and kids meals were all really good too. Loved the hand washing station. This would be at the top of our restaurant list if we ever return to the area, it’s worth a drive if you ask me as it puts other crab shacks to shame! Thanks for the great experience!

The crab was over cooked, the corn and potatoes tasted like they had been made the day before and looked terrible. The restroom was horrific and unacceptable. We spent a lot of money for a less than mediocre meal. We will never recommend this establishment to anybody.

Great local place for seafood. Ambiance was not as it usually is with precautions for covid-19 in place. Felt very reassured that they were taking virus very seriously. Food was great as always.

The food was great, as was the service. It's a great place to get very good seafood at an excellent price. This is our second time visiting them and they have not disappointed us yet! We love it and we'll be back next time we're in Florida.
