Our first visit to Crabby's today for lunch and will certainly be our last. Food was terrible. We ordered a 2 piece flounder plate with French fries and slaw. Fish was ok but was greasy. Could not eat the fries. They were greasy and taste like they had been cooked for a while. Very small portion of slaw (served in a plastic condiment cup). Was told by our waiter that hush puppies or other bread is not served during lunch. Waiter did tell us he would see if he could get us some and did return with 3 hush puppies for each person. Very overpriced for the meal especially compared to other local restaurants with much better food.

This was great, we ate there when visiting and it was honestly really good. The lobster bisque was amazing and the waitress was very nice. She even got us the recipe for one of the appetizers. It was very nice and the workers were very kind even when there was barely anyone there.

Very best in South Brunswick Islands. Those who complained about the food or service couldn't be more wrong. Friendliest staff I've met on any of the seven continents. If you're lookng for great food and not overpriced fancy meals, you should go to Crabby's!!! .

I have visited Sunset Beach on several occasions over the past 10 years. I love the fresh and delicious food sold and served at this friendly location. Plastic cups and utensils are for the laid back and unique individuals, who know the important things in life :)

Crabby's was recommended to us. We ate there 3 times in a one week visit. The food was wonderful, I had stuffed mahi and my wife had a variety of dishes. The service made all the difference to us. The staff (manager Gabby, waiters Noah and Meghan, hostesses "The twins" all were fantastic. Drinks were good, atmosphere was just fine. Plasitc utensils were fun. No complaints what so ever. A truly wonderful experience. Very Very friendly staff. I cant wait to go back.

My Husband and I have visited Crabby Odd Waters for the past 13 years. The food is "Outstanding and Fresh" a great value for the price. My husband loves the Grouper and I love the Flounder.We look forward to going every year. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is authentic to the Coastal area. The food has always been served on plastic for lack of city sewer service in the area.That is about to change - on our visit this year sewer service is in the works.We look forward to another visit there this year.The owners are friendly and dedicated.

Seven women away on a girls weekend to celebrate a birthday and mother's day gathered at Crabby's on Saturday night, May 12, 2012. The drinks were good, the bartender 'D', was very friendly and helpful. 'Cr' was our waitress and she served us attentively. My daughter and I shared a Bodacious Seafood pot and it was absolutely delicious: 2 whole crabs, a snow crab leg, several mussels, clams, oysters (were a little hard to open, but we managed), shrimp with a light sauce that was fabulous, a corn on the cob and roasted potatoes instead of watery new potatoes that usually accompany a dish like this. I tasted my niece's grouper and it was perfectly done. Not a fan of the plastic ware and the paper plates, but it just added to the casual, fun atmosphere. Talked to other patrons (about 25 people sang happy birthday to me!), so everyone had the same sort of casual friendliness that made our evening spectacular. Not fancy, but food is much better than what you expect at a bar type restaurant at the beach. Crabby Oddwaters has become a family favorite!

My husband and I just returned from Ocean Isle. We went to this place because we love seafood and wanted to try the buckets. I got the Shrimp bucket my shrimp was over cooked, the potatoes practically raw and the sausage was burnt. My husband got the shrimp, clam, muscles and oyster bucket. The muscles were excellent, the shrimp over cooked and potatoes raw..The oysters weren't cut they gave him a knife to open them. Imagine that we've never done that before and it wa so messy. Plus most places already have them done. All plastic utensils what a joke. Over priced and lousy atmosphere.

My family has been going to Crabbys for many years now and I can definitely say things have done nothing but improve over the years. They seemed to have revamped the staff because the servers were not only knowledgeable and enjoyable to speak with, but they were much faster than in recent years. We continue to go back because of how great the food is but definitely applaud their new look and service! I reccommend Crabbys to anyone seeking good food and a friendly atmosphere.

Well we entered the restaurant and the bar tender was fixing himself in the mirror. We got seated with in 10 mins and waited 25 mins before they brang out any of our food. When we got our food they forgot my husbands meal, and to top it off they served me a salad that had rotten tomatoes on it. So when the waiter came back I told him to please take my salad and New England clam Chowder back and to take it off of the bill and the best part is it was served in a PLASTIC bowl with plastic utensils...I laughed!!! Now look, I am not trying to be picky but, I have eaten at 5 stars, 4 stars and 3 star restaurants. This was horrible. I would not even send my worst enemy here. I beg you please do not eat at the place it was terrible. Price wise it is not worth it either. Has for a rating I would give it a "0"

My wife and I moved here a month ago and finally decided to check it out. The atmosphere was great, the waitress was pleasant, however we have never been more disguted be a plate of food in our entir lives. We ate some of our bucket of seafood and when we got to the oysters, well lets just say we were about to puke. Inside our oysters was something that looked like mildew and black slime. The worst part was that it smelled like sewer. We showed the waitress and she agreed. She took it down the the cook our someone and all that was offered was a new order or a piece of pie. Niether one of us wanted to eat after that experience and the smell stayed in my nose for quite a while. I cant believe they didnt even offer to comp some of the bill. We will never eat there again and we will definately warn our friends.

Not impressed. The place is up for sale according to their website and the ho-hum, hey I'm for sale so why try attitude really showed through. Seating took a while for a table of 2, but that was forgivable this busy time of year. The real kicker was the fact that the kitchen lost our ticket and had to restart our order. When our order finally did arrive, the quality of the food was not great for the price. Felt that the price justified better quality. The waitress was affable and was trying hard despite the kitchen's gaffe, but unfortunately the service alone will not convince me to return.
