Nice & Quaint

I've passed by Gettin Crabby many times as and for what ever reason I just didn't stop in. Now that I have I'm wondering why I didn't before! First of all you do need to make reservations because it is a small place. It is worth going. It is a little pricy depending upon what you order. They only... read more

2 teens shared Crabby Platter, they loved it. If you like crab legs, we recommend it. Captain's Trio- fish, scallops, shrimp-you choose how it's prepared-fantastic. Fresh Mahi Mahi-wanted jerk seasoning but don't like my food so spicy I can't enjoy it, waitress said it can be lightly dusted. It was wonderful! The cilantro rice is amazing! If you like cilantro,... More

First time there & won't be our last. Had heard/read about this place for a while, but never got there until tonight. It's small & gets busy, so either go early, make a reservation, or plan to wait. Hubby had the conch fritters and hog fish special that had lump crab meat on top. He raved how good it all... More

This place has a dive-y atmosphere reminding me of some of the old Keys bars and restaurants. Fish is tasty and ALL SANDWICHES CAN BE MADE INTO SALADS!!! Crab soup is tasty. A tad pricey but delicious. Be careful in the parking lot. Limited space and last visit - severely washed out areas.

This is a first class gourmet establishment. Fresh ingredients expertly prepared. Very friendly atmosphere and great music. Informal, but don't let that fool you. This place is top notch. The Crabby platter for has snow, dungeness, blue, and king crab, OMG; highly recommended. The Cobia and Snapper were amazingly prepared and each exploded with a plethora of flavors! The food...

Hands down some of the best mahi I've ever had. The plantains were superb.The place is very tiny and we had to sit at the bar which isn't comfortable, but they do take reservations.

This place is small but the food is phenomenal. You might have to wait to get a table but it will be worth it.

I was looking for a place for my out of town guests to get good soft shell crabs and checked the reviews and found Gettin' Crabby at the Stern House. We called for a reservation and checked to see if the crabs were available. The place doesn't look like much from the outside and has a very small dining room... More
