Good Seafood

We have been going to Sunset Beach for years, but just ate at Crabby Oddwaters for the first time. Now I wish we had gone here sooner. Good, fresh seafood and you don't have to have it fried if you don't want to. The butter mixture that they serve with the hushpuppies cannot be beaten!! We went... read more

Recommended by a friend but when we arrived I thought "No Way!" It looks like its about to be condemned or something. We seriously almost left -SO GLAD WE DIDNT! A lady was leaving so we asked her and she raved about it so we went in. Inside we were greeted by super friendly staff. The decor was not modern... More

Went to Crabby's after not being there for many years. Wanted to see what our second experience would be like. We are locals so there are many seafood restaurant choices available. This ranks as average---nothing disappointing but just average.

We were u down from the north to look at property and found this little gem near Sunset Beach. Nice location on the Intercoastal, decor is homey. Food was well prepared and plentiful with hush puppies you'll adore. Wife had blue crabs, a dozen, with corn, potatoes and sausage, a feast. Comes in a huge casserole. Shrimp and fried oysters...

This is a favorite restaurant in our family. We love to get the steam pots! We went this evening, and had great service. Lauren was our waitress, and was attentive and our food came pretty quick. The hush puppies, served while you're waiting, were delicious. The hamburger (from the kids menu) was ok... but I opted to go for the... More

My family loves to eat here when we are at Sunset Beach. The stream pot is a good value and enough food for two. I love the shrimp burger as it tastes very close to bang bang shrimp. I order it without the roll so I get the full favor of the shrimp. Service is hit or miss depending on... More

The four of us ordered two appetizers of Oysters Rockefeller. It was their special that night. Twenty minuets later only one order... More

Let me start by saying I have never posted a review about anything. Movie, restaurant or hotel... Upon arrival the host/waitress/bartender seated us and said they were out of oysters. Ok it happens. When she left I noticed other patrons looked a little impatient and unhappy. But we had already comitted. Ordered calamari, a bucket of seafood and shrimp for... More
