Great BBQ + in Corolla

Great BBQ Sandwiches, Cold Beer, lots of other goodies but to be honest I always get a BBQ with side of beans, never disappointed. They have a lot of steamed seafood too which I hear is excellent. Don't be fooled by the small outside appearance, I have been going there for years!

I was a little nervous when we went in because you seat yourself, get your own drinks from a cooler or fountain, there was plastic silverware and the food was served on plastic plates. I didn't care about any of that after my first bite! Waitress was great about specializing orders (we mixed 2 platters so it was part fried... More

Got creative and complicated my order. The waitress was nice and checked if it could be done. It turned out exactly how I wanted and it was GREAT!

This place is small...but holy cow! was the food amazing! Service was great, fun and friendly...food was simply out of this world for the price! I am not a huge shell fish fan, but when in Rome...I ate every single bite on my plate! Can't wait to go back next year!

This was one of the best crab cakes I've ever eaten. No filler! It's a beach resort town so it's very casual. Laid back...serve yourself drinks and tell them what you had when you pay at the counter. Our entire party enjoyed their meals. The hush puppies are great, too. Very reasonable prices, too.

So good! I had crab legs and they were perfect! The fries were amazing and the fried shrimp that my son ordered was beyond amazing! The shrimp sauce was unique and fantastic as well. I can't say anything bad about our food or service! If we are ever in the area again, I'm sure it will be on our list... More

I didn't dislike anything here! Fabulous food that even the kids said was great! I had crabcakes (the only seafood I will eat) and they were kind enough to keep them on a little longer because I like them crispy. My father said the fish was the best he has ever had. Shrimp, crab legs and bbq pulled chicken was... More

What a great little place. We were looking for a place to take the family for dinner and found Fatcrabs on TA. Everything was great. The BBQ was great and the fish was terrific! The portions could be a little bigger but everything else was really great and the staff was super friendly. We definitely recommend Fatcrab's to everyone.
