I have been visiting Crabby Bobs for years. Their seafood is always fresh, nice and fairly priced. Lots of selection and they will do special orders for anyone. Just great.

The crabs are live and you pick what size you want to either take with you or have cooked for you. If they cook it, you get garlic butter to go with it. It was delicious! You can eat it right there, which is dockside.

Thanks for writing 😁 The steep steps tells me you came at low tide! It happens twice a day where the ramp goes up and then goes down. All depends on how big the moon is😁 big moon= big tides= steep ramps at low tide....More

Stopped in for a dozen oysters in the shell to take back to our hotel suite deck. They were chosen with care by a (not at all crabby) staff person for on-the-half-shell enjoyment. I shucked them easily and found each and every one to be...More
