What is Fulton's Crab House like?!!

We have never eaten here, but are both big seafood fans. Would love to hear opinions/pictures from anyone who has eaten here!

IMO....
The good news: Anything Crab is very very good.
The bad news: Everything else is just so so.
The bottom line: Very Expensive !!! (You can easily spend more here than at California Grill.)

This is one of those Disney restaurants that are either love it or hate it. We LOVE it. We don't go every year because it is not on the dining plan and it is very expensive (I understand lunch is cheaper). We went this past September with our best friends for our special 25th anniversary dinner and had a great meal. Actually, every time we've gone, we've had a great meal and terrific service. Here is a link to my review from last year:

My family of four ate there last Summer. The staff was great, and the food was delicious. My wife had crab legs, I had Halibut, and I don't remember what my older son had (probably shrimp). My youngest son is not a big seafood eater, so he ordered chicken strips, and they were some of the best chicken strips I have ever seen or tasted.

We will be returning there for a meal this Summer.

Enjoy.

I am very fond of Fulton's, but it is expensive and it is not as good as other expensive options at Disney. I have always had great service, and other than a few missteps, the food has been good. For the money, I'd rather get my seafood fix at Narcoossee's, which has better location, a better view, and dramatically better food. That being said, I usually have a lunch or dinner at Fulton's when at Disney and enjoy it fine.

I especially like their crab and lobster bisque, and their crab cakes. I like their version of those better than anyone else's! Everytime I go, (lunch) I am tempted to try something else, but haven't done that yet.

I enjoyed Fulton's, but very expensive and I enjoyed other meals more. We probably won't go there again this trip, but I think it is worth a visit.

Think we might give it a try!! Do you make reservations through Disney? Or are they not needed?

We've been able to walk in without a wait and other times there has been a wait. Therefore, I always make an ADR. Yes, you can do it through Disney dining.

Fultons is one of the worst "better" restaurants on property. Service is wretched, food just ordinary. Their crabcake can't hold a candle to the genuine Md. article. Flying Fish and Blue Zoo are much better seafood spots.

We went for lunch this past Jan and really enjoyed it. I had stone crab claws for an appetizer, and they were soooooo delicious and fresh! I had the seafood cobb salad for my entree and it was out of this world! There was so much seafood on the salad, it was well worth the cost of it! I also just love their bloody mary's, the are amazing!
