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.

    Half our party canceled so it was only 4 of us to dine. The host took us to our table and the after that point the service remained great. The restaurant was great may have just been renovated. The food was even better. I would return. We ordered off the menu although there were fixed price meals. The crab and waffle and the lobster ravioli was delicious. The grilled seafood skewer was presented very nicely and was cooked perfectly. We order wine with our meals.

    Are their any locations in the States? there was live music that was just a tad too loud but it was pleasant songs.

    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.
