Crabby Joe's is usually really good! But for some reason this location is very slow and whenever I order something, anything really.....there is something wrong with it. For example: I ordered the new buttermilk crispy chicken sandwich and they forgot to put the sauce on it. So without sauce it was quiet dry. Or another visit I ordered a regular... More

My family roots led me back to Ingersoll. My last dinner in town was in mid '80s. Crabby Joes has replaced an old family favourite, many years gone by. And it is not a change for the better. C.J.'s is primarily bar food, and does not pretend to be any thing more. We were seated promptly at 2.00 pm and... More

I recently went to Crabbys and was delighted to see the `lighter fare` menu. I ordered the lettuce wraps. The flavour of the chicken, vegetable filling was excellent, but the lettuce that came with it was so wet that we had to order extra napkins to absorb the extra water! I was there with a close friend, and we laughed... More

The bar service is never very good. You will wait and wait and wait for bar service. Restaurant service is good though. The food is typical pre-fab, heat 'n' eat, type stuff. I would avoid the ribs though.

We recently moved to Ingersoll and thought we should eat locally. We had never been to a Crabby Joe's before. We were seated quickly and placed our orders. After waiting for 45 mins we were brought our main dish. During the wait we saw the manager standing in the kitchen with the waitstaff. They were all talking and checking their... More

My husband and I didn't feel like cooking so we decided to spoil ourselves and go out for dinner instead. When we got here at 6pm the parking lot and restaurant were empty..that should've been our warning sign. The food was absolutely terrible. We ordered spinach and artichoke dip for a starter and the pita bread that was served with... More

Basicaly the same everytime, nothing new. Also nothing great or new to keep coming back to either. The staff, well so so actually. Really I'm beginning to see a trend of higher prices and nothing else really changing but my bill.

We stopped here to have before checking in at the Elm Hurst Inn. The service was good, the food was ok - they were a little skimpy on the french fries. The bathroom was very small and dirty. On the bar side there was still peanut shells on the floor from the night before.
