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

Look, this is not fine dining. I go in waltz myself up a steep flight of stairs and lo and d behold its a rooftop bar, nothing fancy but one of the best views to have a couple brews and maybe a grouper sandwich. The staff has always been friendly, talkative without being a pain and with the view I... More

Got here and there was a long wait but realized we could walk upstairs to the outdoor seating and there was no wait and a way better view! We got to sit outside at a picnic table and watch the ocean. My burger was great too.

BUT....we didn't get our yearly picture this year!!! We were too early!! Now we know for next year that the photographer comes in a little later than... More

Went here on a Tuesday night around 7pm and had to wait over 45 minutes for a table only to be served chicken that was still pink. Conch fritters were tasty, shrimp was alright, and fish tacos had rancid cheese on them. Poor experience this time around.

We ate at Crabby Bills and took advantage of their early bird special. We got the blackened Mahi-Mahi. The $10.99 dinner came with 2 sides. The Mahi was excellent and the garlic mashed potatoes I got were very good as well. The green beans were ok, but everything else great! We also got a crab dip appetizer which was amazing.

Our food came out room temperature. My broiled seafood was lukewarm. I asked the waitress for some melted butter...fifteen minutes later she was still cutting it up with another table. My daughter had to ask another waitress for it. NOT worth $135!!!!!!!
