We really enjoyed our meal at the Blue Crab. We had crab legs and scrimp and both were tasty and fresh. Our server was friendly and professional. This is a great replacement for all of those overpriced seafood buffets in the area.

We found the menu choices of the Blue Crab to be excellent. Most impressive was the quality of the fried seafood, not at all greasy and the ingredients fresh. We very much enjoyed the fried oysters. The Low Country Boil for our large group on an earlier visit received high marks for all. We found the service to be very... More

My family of 10 dined at Blue Crab in Pawleys Island on Sunday, July 7. When we arrived the staff was able to accommodate our party very quickly. Waitstaff was attentive and the food was good as ever. Don't miss the pot boiler if you are hungry. Fresh seafood including shrimp, clams, oysters, and crab legs along with red potatoes.... More

The restaurant is very casual which was good for us eating with small kids. They can color on the paper table cloth. There is a playground for the kids to use while waiting for the food which was great. I would say the food was just average. The service was good.
