Nice restaurant on the water. It has a lot of seafood dishes on the menu along with meat dishes. The all you can eat crabs is the reason I was there. If you go try and get a seat next to the water and wait for the sunset.

We took a beach vacation to Wildwood Crest for the first time ever this summer. Our front desk clerk recommended this place for dinner on our first night. The place was close and it was packed! The parking lot was huge and almost every space was filled. Quite impressive: this place must be good. Well, when we got up to... More

Not sure if I'm posting at the right place but I believe both establishments are connected so here goes. This review is for the Two Mile Island part. Went there on a Saturday night in mid-October. Place was crowded. The soups were excellent. Butternut squash & clam chowder. Waited for almost an hour for our main course. We ordered easy--2... More

The Crab House Restaurant is located at the Two Mile Landing just north of the bridge from Cape May to Wildwood Crest on Ocean Drive. There are two restaurants at the location. The Crab House is more informal. There is interior and exterior seating and tables, booths, and picnic tables available. Our meals were satisfactory. We had the Crab Imperial... More

Got here at about 640. Its now 730 and oir meals are not here yet. Waitress is apologetic but nothing is going to be done to mollify us. Its was not a huge order and considering the high prices this experience should be better. You can tell that a lot of this stuff is frozen and not fresh. Manager not... More

First of all, Crab House which was closed off season Oct night we were there, should have different reviews than Two Mile Landing, while they are next to each other, two different venues. 2 mile = Perfect venue for seafood. Great nautical décor. What a unbelievable sunset view, boats, and the bridge. Nice looking bar area. Great, prompt service. Tasty... More

I ordered the softshell crabs and they were absolutely delicious. Our waitress was very good and was helpful with our questions about the menu. As we were leaving a fabulous sunset gave us a real thrill.

After 26 years, I couldn't wait to go back to this restaurant. Unfortunately, The Crab House was closed because of the weather. So we ate at Two Mile Landing and what a treat! It was wonderful! The blueberry drink I had at the bar was fresh and soooo good and the food was just as good, not to mention the... More

Crab House serves excellant steamed Maryland crabs. The Cole slaw is delicious and the corn on the cob is sweet. People from Wilmington, DC. ANNAPOLIS, can stop at Kent Island and get better at cheaper prices.

We have eaten at two mile landing the last 2 fire conventions, on the back deck. Food is very good and the view can't be beat. Definitely worth it.
