Delicious

Food: 4 Selection: 4 Service: 4 Cost: 3 Aesthetics: 4 Overall: 4 The food here is delicious. It is a little pricy but worth it. The outside of the building looks a little sketchy but becomes top notch once inside.

We love eating at Crabby's! We have never had a bad experience or less than wonderful food. From the blackened salmon oscar to the steak, it is always amazing. Don't leave without ordering the bread pudding - order it with your meal, as they bake it fresh for you, and it takes about 20 minutes.

I really expected more from this place. I ordered the sea bass and it was flavorless. My mushrooms and asparagus were so charred that's all I could taste, bleh. My mashed potatoes were killer though. The crime brûlée was terrible. I don't think it set properly, it was lumpy instead of creamy like it's supposed to be. It was pretty... More

Being this far inland, still in the Midwest, I lower my expectations when it comes to seafood. But a look at Crabby's menu online convinced me to give it a shot. The restaurant is near downtown Joplin in an unassuming building. I actually drove past it. It's pretty low - key. The interior is DARK, especially when entering on a... More

We love Crabby's. We have a simple - yet incredibly delicious and favorite order. Their seafood chowder is divine. Paired with a nice salad and an order of portabella fries and we're set. We always see friends there or make friends with the people at the next table. The service is exceptional.

On a cold snowy evening in February my friends and I went looking for a great meal and were warmly greeted at Crabby's in Joplin! What a delight!! Attentive service for our group of 7, we were seated immediately and our service began with a smile and a drink order. Wonderful list of wines, great appetizers, and we each loved... More

This is my first time to the joplin crabbys. I have been to the one in bentonville a couple times. Unfortunately I do not make it here enough to try something different so all I know is the blackened salmon Oscar. I think today's may be the best of the three visits. I couldn't stop eating until it was gone... More

We went there mid week. You have to look close to find them while driving. While full we were seated promptly. Our server was informative and attentive. I thought there prices were fair and their portions adequate. Be sure and get desert. We had the chocolate and peanut one. It takes 15 minutes extra but is worth the wait.

I've been to Crabby's numerous times and I've had excellent meals there and I've had horrible meals there. Unfortunately you never know which it will be. I've heard this from a lot of different people so I know it's not just me. There have been times where the sea bass was the delicious and other times where it had an... More
