This place is a small looking "hole in the wall", but when you go inside it's surprisingly large and upscale. The food was fantastic and the service was right there too. We have been here multiple times now and have been overly satisfied each time. This place is always good!

A group of my colleagues ate there for lunch and the service and food was above average and the prices very reasonable. Would recommend if you are in the area.

While visiting Joplin, MO we stopped in at the visitor center for information and asked a local for a restaurant recommendation. The young lady at the center suggested Crabbys seafood, bar and grill. The restaurant is close to the downtown area and the historic district. The atmosphere is great, food was well cooked and the portion was generous, service was... More

It's a lovely place, an upscale bar type. It's not Smokey but I got whiffs of cigarettes every now and then. Staff is very friendly. I had the soup and salad. The seafood chowder left much to be desired, slightly spicy. I got The Autumn salad and oh my goodness by far and without a doubt the best salad I... More

We were in Joplin for a one night stopover during a Rt. 66 road trip. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we when to Crabbys and it was a pleasant surprise. It’s located in a semi-seedy part of town and it’s easy to miss. The exterior is bland and it shares a parking lot with a supermarket but parking is abundant. Once... More

Crabbys has a unique atmosphere that's casual yet sexy. The food is delicious. My favorite is the calarmari-hand breaded at the restaurant. The restaurant servers everything from salads to sandwiches to pasta, steaks and of course seafood. Usually there is a daily special. For dessert the bread pudding is incredible, but must be ordered early as takes awhile. There is... More

My first time in this place while in business trip in Joplin area. The food and atmosphere is first class, as well as service. It is not the best bargain in Joplin as a little pricey but the nice touch is the place is smoking free atmosphere.
