It's a unique experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for some fun. It's entertaining, and while my crab didn't win it was great fun watching everyone cheer on their own crab.

We entered three crabs in the race, but didn't win. The real fun comes when the guy running the races does his thing! He can be slightly insulting, but it's all in good fun.... You can't be sensitive, but take it for what it is-- good natured ribbing! My wife and I were singled out many times, but the guy... More

You cannot the hordes that turn out for this....lots of kids and parents at the early show and couples for the later show. I, unfortunately, have heard the spiel many times while I am trying to have dinner at the Crow's Nest. I guess people like it, but I think the guy is a little rough so if you are... More

Mr. Tim has a sharp mind and an equally sharp tongue. You have to be prepared to be insulted,squirted with water and made fun of, which is all part of the fun. The early races are great for kids and the later ones are adults only.

NASCRAB is an entertaining hour or so of laughs! My 10 year old son had a fantastic time! You choose your "racer".............a hermit crab...........and it competes in a series of "races" to the finish line. It's a comedy routine...........one of those silly island things that's fun to try. Have dinner in the restaurant while you're at 'Tween Waters...........delicious food! But... More

Poor food, poor service. The actual crab event was dragged out. We took our two young daughters. They couldn't hardly see, and at times the man hosting the crab races was mean to people.

Something different to do while waiting for the sunset. Limited menu, but the beer is cold. Two shows, one for the kids ( before sunset) and a later one for adults. Adult show can get a little crude.
