Anything but crabby😊

Our part of 24 from NY never misses a night at Crabby Mike's during Spring break. Jon, our waiter, does an excellent job providing for our group of all ages. The crab legs are the best anywhere and the buffet is amazing. See you next year Jon!

The food is great. We travled from CT and when we saw the sign we had to go and enjoy the "all you can eat crab legs". My waiter was Paul Collen and he was great. Made sure we were good at all times. I really enjoyed it and will be back soon. Thank you all!!!!!

Just ate at Crabby Mike's in Surfside for my first time. Was brought there by friends who have eaten there a few times. Our server was Brittany. she was absolutely outstanding. My water glass was always full and there were always clean plates and empty "trash" baskets (for shells, etc) and I could never catch her at it. It was... More

Was not that thrilled with crablegs but the service was very friendly. A bit pricey for what it was. The crab was way overcooked, salad bar was adequate.

This place was really great. Even though they were very busy, we got seated quickly and we're on to the food. Everything we had was very good. Crab legs were excellent and they kept it well stocked. Our waiter was great. Would definitely go back!

I'll start this review by saying I don't like seafood but I felt after looking at their menu that there would be lots of other things to eat. There was lots of other stuff but most of it didn't look so good. I found the quality of the food cheap. For the price we paid I expected something fresh and... More

We've been here twice and return is doubtful. I feel the food is good, but value is not there. I do enjoy crab and do not have as often as I would like. I am not a big eater like my husband is. For the price, it wouldn't break the place to include soft drinks. Really, a glass of Pepsi... More

Hi Stealerlady, I am glad you liked the food quality and the selection however, I am very sorry you do not feel you received what you paid for. We are definitely not the cheapest buffet in the area and honestly, we do not want to be the cheapest. We use top quality products and have trained Chefs that prepare it... More

I am not usually a fan of buffets however Crabby Mike's exceeded my expectations greatly. The selection of food was highly extensive and unusually (purely in my opinion) tasted extremely fresh instead of some buffets where you can tell the food has been laying out for hours. The food tasted great and the service was efficient and courteous. Interior decor... More
