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.

We love Crabby's - and I don't even like Seafood! This place is top notch. The atmosphere is superb and we've always had spectacular service. It is upscale but have always felt comfortable wearing whatever attire I have on. A t-shirt isn't going to stop me from eating here!! The service is always phenomenal. The wait staff and bartenders always... More

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
