Don't judge a book by its cover

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

The seafood here is so fantastic. It is always fresh, the sides are delicious. It is one of the best seafood restaurants that I have dined at. Keep up the great meals everyone at Gettin' Crabby.

It is literally a hole in the wall, wedged between a propane store and a gun shop (I think). The first time we went our waitress Meg(?) was very informed, attentive and professional even with a full house. Her recommendations were spot on, I was disappointed there was no blue crab but I truly enjoyed my soft shell crab. My... More

This is another one of those restaurants that you'll never find on your own! It is located on Salerno Road on the south side just before the railroad tracks. There is a gun shop in the front of the bldg and Crabby's is in the back.I love the wait staff. The owner's wife is always there working and she is... More

They have really good sea food but it isn't cheap. I've been here 4 times and the meals are always good. The snapper is the best.

They take reservations for 4 or more. If weekend and less than 4, eat at 5pm. The CA Pinot Noir is a great wine. You may or may not like the atmosphere, but this is the kind of place where it is almost impossible to find anything other than great food. I have never liked any bisque of any flavor,... More

I love the way they serve their smoked fish dip. They have live entertainment often. The prices are very fair.

This is a place you would never know existed! We only found it by word of mouth! Don't expect anything fancy or any frills with your meal, it's just plain great seafood!! The staff is personable and knowledgeable about their fish. I always get the fishermans platter which is amazing, my husband had tried just about everything on the menu... More
