Dinner before the storm

Very fast service and very helpful servers. The interior will not blow you away but who cares when you can get steamed oysters - buy one get one buckets! Oh and I really enjoyed my buffalo shrimp appetizer.the only reason I did not rate at a 5 is its very dark in the interior seating area.

Love Crab Catchers. You can eat inside or outside by the water. Not a fancy place, but, a great place to get some delicious local seafood. Love taking a seat by the water and having some oysters or crabs. Staff is friendly too. Been here so many times I can't count.

This is my second trip to Crab Catchers. This time I tried the all you can eat steamed shrimp. The first serving was at least a pound of huge shrimp seasoned with Old Bay. On the side were hush puppies, cole slaw and steamed vegetables. The second shrimp serving was as big as the first...... Our waitress was very attentive... More

We had no real high expectations walking in. This looks like the kind of place locals would hang out, with a hand written white board outside listing non-printed menu items, a low ceiling inside, and 60's era chairs and tables. The menus are nondescript, just the basic seafood. The first hint that we might have stumbled into something good was... More

Foods so-so, and greasy, as is the decor. Not a favorite u bless you've fished or worked in the yard all day and want to go somewhere when not at your best. May appeal to some I guess. Not me, tho.

We actually came to the area intending to go to a different restaurant but they were closed for the season so we walked down the road and ended up here. The place was PACKED so we figured they must be alright. Well, we were right! We ordered several appetizers and cocktails and everything came out fast enough, considering how busy... More

Went to Crab Catchers this past Sunday 11/29/15, very disappointing. Myself and one other guess ordered sandwiches with fresh homemade chips, Not!! Received store bought Ruffles instead. The sandwich was also on a small store bought bun that looked like Sunbeam brand or something similar. Asked the wait person about this and the explanation was that they were so busy... More

We visited with friends who really love this place. The food options for our diet requirements were limited to side dishes and were not very good. We ate at the bar on the deck by the river - great location. Service was excellent.

I have never felt so taken advantage of as I did at this restaurant. I ordered a grouper sandwich for lunch. The grouper was very good I will have to say but not $21.00 good. I ordered sweet tea, grouper sandwich, which was served on a hamburger bun, and upgraded to french fries instead of their homemade chips. When I... More
