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.

I don't know what all of the negative reviews are about but I guess some people you just can't make happy! We have never had a bad experience here and have been coming back for years! This last time we had the nachos which were very creative and tasted great! I had the seafood risotto and it was awesome! The... More

This place has been a favorite of mine since they first opened. I was really disappointed when they were closed and tickled to hear they were reopening. A friend and I stopped in for dinner on a weeknight at about 7:00. They were surprisingly unbusy. We were seated right away but we had a long wait for the server to... More

My husband and I ate a Crabbys last night and were extremely disappointed and left not wanting to go back. We had a reservation at 7:30 and were able to be seated immediately when we arrived at 7:15. Our table was all ready for us...one of only two positives for the night. We didn't get our meal until 8:35!!! Everyone... More

I used to love Crabby's, so I was very excited that they were reopening. A friend and I decided to treat ourselves to a girls' night out, and we chose Crabby's as our dinner venue. I should have known as soon as we walked in the door that it would not be up to the standards I had known and... More

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
