On arrival our waitress told us it is very busy so we are going to wait a little longer for our food - did not mention how long we were going to wait for drinks....after a full 25 minutes we received our drinks. Our food was ordered and guess what? Only one of the dishes ordered came out of the kitchen, semi raw and an hour later the rest of our food still did not arrive, we gave up and left hungry even settling our bill was a struggle. We will not be back.

I haven't been this Winter as i generally love to sit outside in their big courtyard with the Knysna Estuary and laughing kids on the jungle jim as good ambience for a lunch with friends. Food isn't at all fine dining, more a beach vibe, so the portions are big and much is tasty and fried. Highly recommend the calamari (soft as it's cut from calamari steaks). Burger was also good and filling.

We were staying at Brenton-on-Sea so this location was ideal. Yes, it's a pub atmosphere, there was not too many others dining at the time so it was nice. We ordered seafood entrees which we thoroughly enjoyed. A Mozambique sauce prawn cocktail of sorts and the freshest tasting calamari. We had burgers for our mains but we were so full from our entrees we could not finish. Good value and service.

We have supported Crab's Creek over many ownership changes and sadly things have not improved! We went there about a month ago and waited an hour for 3 pizzas!! This was before lunch during the week. It has huge potential and I really wish that they would improve things especially with the view. I sincerely hope it doesn't get developed but remains a restaurant with decent food.

We were looking for somewhere to eat while staying at Knysna. We wanted something that probably wasnt going to stretch the budget too much. Having sat outside the resturant during the day enjoying the great location, we thought the "pub" might fit the bill. Especially as it was Christmas Eve and most places were heavily booked

We booked a non smoking table for that evening. We wanted non smoking as their seemed to be a lot of smoke wafting into the restuarant. the waiter very keen to help, assured us that we would have a good table away from the smoking population.

Arrived to find our table had been given to someone else by a different waiter. A bit disappointed we were given another table.

You have got to bear in mind this is NOT fine dining. Its a pub, but unfortunately a pub with a chef who cant cook so well. Diners on an adjacent table obviously thought the same, but enough to complain. Mind you I would have thought complaining BEFORE you eat it all might be a good idea.

Apparently the place has seen a few owners and not highly thought of locally. Unfortunatly unless the new owners get things sorted out quickly I think they might fall in the same list.

If you cant find anywhere else, it ok

In summary its ok, but with
