awesome crab and then some!

Quaint seafood restaurant hidden in plain sight! A Very small local favorite. I have had every option on the appetizer list, and most of the dinner selections. The soft shell crab, Captains platter, and the scallops are my favorites...but that changes after every "new" selection! Their oysters are... read more

At first I thought this was a fun name for a seafood restaurant, but Gettin' Crabby, is literally a place to go if you're looking to eat crabs at a very casual setting. There is a smell of boiled seafood, kinda like that Old Bay season mixed with fish smell. Again - it's great if your looking to dig into... More

We had a really good meal, Enjoyed everything except the service. We felt really rushed, waiter kept telling us you only have such and such time I have a reservation coming in. We were in and out of there very quickly. We wanted to be able to relax and have a few drinks. Pretty expensive for not much time allotted... More

I have lived in the area for years and driven by but never tried it until last week. Was very pleasantly surprised. Fresh sautéed fish with a crab lemon butter sauce. Simple and delicious. Not fancy not even a good date spot but really enjoyed this no frills restaurant and will be back soon.

We love eating here, it's a local fish house, but also has an awesome steak dinner/or sandwich. It has a guy playing the guitar and cozy bars. Limited parking, so they have a free valet.

I love sitting back at the bar....atmosphere is great. My favorites are the bacon wrapped scallops and the crab bisque/chowder. My wife also had the smoked fish dip and it was excellent. Sitting in the back at the bar is good because it is not as loud. Service is above average.

Gettin Crabby takes reservations for parties of 4 or more so be sure to call! There are limited tables and busy at dinner. We were a party of 6 and were seated immediately. There were lots of specials which our waitress explained. We each had a different entree which were all excellent. We had wine and beer and wonderful dessert!... More

Found this gem while in the area last week and so glad we did! Went on a Friday night and they were pretty busy. Had to wait 45 mins for a table but so glad we did! Make a reservation if you don't want to have to wait. They serve beer and wine so no trouble passing the time with... More

Parking is tough and we couldn't get a table and had to eat at the bar, but the food was excellent! They had entertainment the night we went which was also very good. Would definitely go again.
