“The Twisted Crab offers a flavorful seafood boil with well-cooked ingredients, particularly in the garlic butter sauce. The restaurant has a kid-friendly menu, although it lacks a crab legs option for kids. Prices are reasonable, with a meal for five people and drinks coming to around $200. The service is generally commendable, with a friendly and attentive server. However, there were some issues with the orders, such as the wrong sauce and delayed appetizer and kids meal. The outdoor seating area could use better lighting near the back door. Despite these minor drawbacks, the restaurant is a great choice for seafood lovers, as confirmed by a customer from New Orleans who has had the dish for over 20 years. The restaurant has ample handicap parking and is wheelchair accessible, with a ramp and friendly staff.”

Mandarin Gourmet 605 Newmarket Dr N, Newport News Chinese • $$

“The place could use some spick and span. The customer service could use a little more work. The customer service was not bad and it's not good. You will see what I'm talking about once you visit. Anyway, I ordered the vegetables with garlic sauce and it was delicious with soy sauce. The vegetable egg roll was good(I usually do not like eggrolls). One thing I like about the guy who prepared my food was that he put a napkin at the bottom of the eggroll bag so the eggroll would not be so greasy. I also ordered the general tos. This general tos is different from what I'm used to because this one is very sweet. I've never known the general tos to be sweet and this is overly sweet. He over did it. I'm not a fan of foods that are too sweet. His general tso tastes more like honey chicken. It tasted like he put the whole bag of sugar in there. So What I did was add soy sauce and it made it a little better from the little bit of soy sauce I had. Don't get me wrong, the general tso wasn't bad it's just that I don't like food that's way too sweet. I know younger people would like it because they like sweet foods like that. I would definitely return to this place and recommend it. I just would not return for the general tso.”
