Owned by Houston-based Landry’s, the Crab House, as with most of their restaurants, occupies some prime waterfront property. The broad, covered patio (indoor dining also) with bar provides a great view of the Jupiter Inlet and its iconic lighthouse. 

Seafood headlines the menu. It’s standard fare for a chain restaurant. I enjoyed lump crabmeat and perfectly cooked shrimp atop a rather ordinary salad (about $13) and fellow diner ordered a crab cake done right: light on bread and top heavy with crab meat.  I checked out the seafood salad bar (all you can eat for $20) and it was short on seafood – shrimp mostly.  

It’s not for the gourmand but Crab House sure ranks high as a good way to enjoy the Florida weather - and view - with friends, family or with a group. Full bar with lots of well and tropical mixed drinks. Service: fair.

The Manatee Queen docks at the Crab House and is available for trips up Hobe Sound, by Jupiter Island and points south. They provide cruises for two or one and a half hours at different times of the day depending on the season, weather and sunset times (adults $24, children $15). For more cruise information, call 561-744-2191. That’s on my list of things to do here; Hobe Sound is beautiful. Copyright © 2010. Jane Feehan. All rights reserved.
