Two of us went to eat on a weekday. Not busy at that time. One had fried fish, other had lobster tail dinner. Food was above average, service average, prices were acceptable for amounts of food served.

Great service, great gulf view. Quite an extensive menu. I had grouper every day in St. Pete, can't go wrong with it. However, my son ordered grouper nuggets, and we sent them back, they were fishy tasting. not inexpensive, average for the area. I probably wouldn't go back.

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel in St. Pete. We tried in on a whim and were very surprised with the food and atmosphere. It was very relaxed and exactly what we were looking for. The steak was exceptional! I'm not sure I have tasted one that good anywhere and it was cooked to perfection! Others in... More

Went to Crabby Bill's as it was short walk from our hotel. Very lively joint. Picnic tables in one big room (like a dining hall). Typical beach food-fried, broiled or baked with a few burgers and salads mixed in. Enough variety for everyone to find something. Lots of fish, shrimp and crab options. Gumbo was okay and broiled crab cakes... More

We were reluctant to visit Bill's but it was close to our condo and we were looking for a quick bite to eat. So we meandered over to check it out. After all we could see that the place was busy most nights. The fist thing you notice when you walk in is the stench of fish. It hits you... More

Typical beach restaurant. Big menu with lots of good looking things. Tried the grouper tacos, which my husband said are the best fish tacos he has ever had. I had the seafood broil with scallops, fish, and shrimp. All were very good, well seasoned. Hush puppies were very good. Fries were frozen, coleslaw was ok. Did not care for the... More

Arriving around 6:30 on a Thursday night, we were seated pretty much immediately. It only took a few minutes before we were greeted by Winston, our server, who proceeded to explain a few of the recommended menu selections including drinks. He was very thorough. I probably will always remember his catch phrase, "Where we crab your appetite." We ordered the... More

We had a large group that visited this restaurant while on vacation. We went a little earlier than typical dinner time, because of our group, and are so glad we did. We were able to all sit together, take cheesy pictures with the crab hats on and enjoy each other's company. The food was delicious, the servers were fantastic and... More

Frozen food, talked to a few locals in the area- they all said the same. Crab legs were okay, cold side items. Steak was really fatty. The price made it seem like it would be great but we were greatly let down. Never got a refill for anyone's drink at the table, server was too busy doing everything else and... More
