Miserable from the moment we were crammed into our RESERVED table. They crammed the 6 of us into a table that was about 5' long by 30" wide. We had reservations but were placed in the bar area in the far back corner, under a freezing vent. We made our displeasure with the cramped table known first with the only... More

While it may look like a questionable old building, the inside tells a different story. The atmosphere was modern and relaxing. The food was excellent. It was definitely on the fancier side but not fancy enough to scare away a girl who loves her steaks and potatoes. The appetizers were delicious and unique. The salad was average but the salad...

This is a place that we go for special meals. Their food is fantastic, whether you eat seafood or not. You can get a great steak just as you can get crab or other tasty sea treats. You would never know from the outside of the restaurant how classy of a joint this is. We also like that it doubles... More

We are local and have enjoyed Crabby's more times than I can count. We always celebrate our anniversary there. We prefer lunch time as the prices are lower and the meal is just right. We have taken friends and family there and everyone has always enjoyed their food. The ahi tuna appetizer is great, as is the calamari or the... More

Last week, I decided to stop by and ordered a" to go": the salmon asparagus salad for me, and the Crabby's burger for my son. I love this salad: perfect portion, salmon was perfectly cooked and I love the dressing. My son loves the burger all the way with cheddar cheese and fries. This was a great treat to reward... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Joplin. Great for lunch and/or dinner. I am making reservations for this coming Thursday for our 29th wedding anniversary. From looking at other reviews it seems to be a hot spot for anniversaries. Our food has always been excellent especially the sea food. We look forward to Thursday.

Have eaten here often, generally very good . . . when kitchen staff is operating with their regulars. Have been here a couple of times when the regular kitchen people were not there--then out of common things like french fries and things that were to be crispy were soggy. But when the A-team in on duty, all is good. Maybe... More

This was an anniversary dinner out. We picked Crabby's because we have had great experiences previously. Maybe we picked the wrong night. (1) We called and made reservations for dinner. When we got there, the hostess tried to seat us in the bar area. We moved. (2) A friend had ordered a bottle of wine for us to enjoy. Before... More

Our first visit to Crabby's was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our kids from Dallas made the reservations and planned a little dessert special surprise(individual little chocolate cakes) by the Crabby's staff. We all rated our entrees 5 stars including our 6 year old granddaughter who had a special pasta and shrimp dish fixed just for her. Our meals... More

For being in a small, landlocked town, Crabby's is more like a coastal hideaway. The menu is representative of a range of tastes. From classic pub fare (fish and chips) to Mediterranean choices (Moroccan spiced mahi mahi), there is a dish to suit every seafood lover's taste. There are even choices for those who don't like seafood (pork chops, beef... More
