Went here for dinner our first night in eastport. Place is nothing fancy and it did seem like lots of locals. Place was not very crowded and there were 2 servers on, so expected decent service. Food was ok, lobster roll was a bit watery and the bun wasn't grilled and the lobster didn't taste that fresh. Burgers were just... More

Crab cakes and scallops were delicious. Locals eat here as well as tourists. Down home type restaurant, nothing fancy. Also has a small bar area. Reasonably priced

Local place to hang out for a meal, meet the locals and enjoy a drink. Good service and friendly people tend to hang out at this conveniently located spot in Eastport. Maine. There is a deck to enjoy as well as inside bar area and resturant.

Enjoyed a great lunch at the Happy Crab. Service was quick and attentive, meal was delicious, recommendation for beer was excellent! The dining room is cute, clean and comfortable, located downtown. I've heard that the evening bar crowd can be quiet energetic - it appeared that the bar area would be accommodating to a large crowd.

Took my mother and father for lunch. As with a lot of older people they eat there big meal at noon, I was glad for that. I had the seafood linguine and my wife had the lobster roll. The linguine was loaded with lobster, scallops and shrimp and the sauce was very creamy. The lobster roll was much large than... More

The tiny town of Eastport is off the beaten path. Take 190 off HWy. 1 in eastern Maine. You will pass a Native American reservation ( Passamaquoddy) before you hit this tiny coastal town. During the month of May, 2014 they have a deal at the Happy Crab: buy one entree at regular price and get the second 50% off.... More

The Happy Crab produced a great meal at a reasonable price! The food was great and ample. This was just a nice place to eat. Couldn't have been more pleased. My wife and I ate only two of the meals but each was great. Very pleasant.

I was visiting family who live in Eastport and are known in the "Crab". Whether this produced fast service, I couldn't say, but the service was friendly and very fast. The food was first rate, I had the seafood pasta at one meal and it had a fair amount of seafood in it (lobster, crab, shrimp and scallops). The lobster... More
