A Maryland-style crab house, the only "REAL" crab house in South Jersey! Indoor picnic tables, brown paper and rolls of paper towels on the table! Casual seafood restaurant featuring Jumbo Lobster Tails, Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and fresh Blue Claw Crabs. The "Crab Sampler" is highly recommended, as is the Jersey Shore Clambake in the summer. Steaks and pasta also on the menu. Homemade Seafood Gumbo. Full liquor bar with 7 beers on tap. Try a Crabby Mary, the house signature cocktail!

Great He Crab Chowder!

On the way home from the shore we decide to stop for some chowder. We had been to Crabby's once before but in season. Then it was packed and the wait was very long. This lime, being way off season, there was no wait. We had drinks, a bowl of He Crab and wings while watching a NFL game. Last... read more

Nothing like sitting around a picnic table with friends armed with crab hammers and picking apart all you can eat blue crabs or crab legs. A pitcher of beer tops it off to wash it all down.

If you are sunburned from the shore and heading home, stop on Route 50 and crack some crabs on the informal indoor picnic benches. The she crab food is my favorite. My husband cracks crabs and I peel a half pound of shrimp. I love Little Margie and Roe and all the peeps at Crabby's. It's clean great food. Oh,... More

Sure everyone loves seafood, but the prices here (according to me) are astronomical. We ate there last week and ordered 3 blue claws, seafood platter and fish and chips (horrible). The platter was good but really $40. Too overpriced for me...sorry...would have my business if it was priced right for middle class family to enjoy.

After reading some of these reviews I was looking forward to being abused by my waitress. Unfortunately Karen was very nice and efficient. Our meals came out quickly and they were as good as ever. The he crab soup was sweet and full of meat. My crabs were tasty and, although Karen apologized for the fact that "mediums" were the... More

exceeded our expectations. We've been vacationing in ocean city every year and we always want good seafood. We decided to do a search for crab and crabby so came up. The menu was incredible with so much to choose from. Prices were high but well worth the food and the value!

The bucket of various types of crab legs is awesome. Excellent portions, moderately priced, but worth it. It's old school, so if you're looking for an upscale restaurant then this is not your place. If you want friendly service and excellent seafood then you should definitely check it out.
