Crab Tavern City is a seafood restaurant and bar that boasts a menu that merges New York style with classic west coast American fare. Choose from an abundance of hero crab dishes, rolls and salads, as well as more refined dishes from the classic grill and seafood selection.

The Crab Tavern menu features signature dishes like crab 'n' waffle, crab Caesar salad, and the perfect-for-sharing 'Tavern Platter': a steamy mix of crispy soft shell crab, charred corn, crab tartare, whitebait and squid. Elsewhere on the menu, discover crab-filled rolls with tastes of California, Maryland and China. The soft shell crab burger is the 'hero' dish at Crab Tavern served with Old Bay seasoned fries. If crab isn't your thing, there’s also vegetarian & non-seafood options, with dishes such as baby beetroot salad, Portobello burger & spatchcock poussin.

Dessert is an expectantly indulgent affair ranging from homemade fruit pies served with organic blueberry ice cream to the more adventurous pecan, chilli & maple tart with lime tequila sorbet. Much-loved classics including baked cheesecake, whilst sundaes are sweetly reminiscent of an American diner.

In the foodie hub of Broadgate Circle, Crab Tavern adds some American seaside glamour to the City. Liverpool Street Station is a short walk away.

    Small and cozy. We went on a friday evening. Lots of people were there for a after work drink. We were the only ones at the dining section so we enjoyed the full attention of the waiters. Food took a while to serve. The $1 one oyster promo was awesome. We ordered a dozen for starters. Our main was a hearty portion for two. The sauce however was rather blend and I thought it can be more flavourful. Overall, an enjoyable dining experience. Thank you!

    Perfect! Food was delicious and the sticky toffee pudding was to die for. Great service!

    Bar and drinks were great, nice atmosphere. Food was good, but not amazing. Service a little slow.

    We had a 5-course deluxe taster menu with Prosecco, which had been gifted to us via Red Letter Days. Food and service was were both excellent! Scallops were to die for!

    The only negative comment I have is I would rather not see the poor huge crab 'on show' in a tank as you enter the restaurant. I don't believe it's humane or appealing to keep seafood 'on show' like that - prolonging the inevitable - especially in a tank way too small for it's size. Regardless of the great food, from a moral perspective I probably wouldn't eat there again. It would also be a good idea (given we're in the 21st C), for the restaurant to show sustainable fishing certification so people can make an informed choice, which I would typically do if it hadn't been a gift.

    We had a lovely time. I have been to Crab Tavern before and have always enjoyed my meal there. The ladies who were with me had a great time too! I hope to be returning in the next month.

    The experience was very average. There was Tavern Burger on the menu but it didn't say what it was. I had ordered Vanilla Ice tea which was £3 but was charged £6 when the bill arrived however they apologised and took it off the bill. But the worst thing was my colleague ordered a platter for £15 however was charged £30! Upon close inspection of the menu, it did say minimum 2 persons for the platter but still the waitress could have pointed that out seeing everyone else had ordered. So the poor guy spent about £40 including drinks for a work lunch which left the rest of us feeling uncomfortable. The food itself was ok. I had the soft shell crab burger which was ok. But the Tavern burger which we believe is beef was crumbly and messy to eat.

    The food was ok. Sharing platter was good however main course (steak and chips) was very salty. We kept have to ask for another drink..........we were doing the bottomless brunch deal. There was often long gaps when we were without a drink
