High priced, so-so quality, slow service in a noisy bar setting. Salads made with older greens...few dressing choices....chicken over cooked, not a value. Fish and chips better quality but french fries were old, dry, cold, and past their prime. Cole slaw was a highlight of...the meals. Each of 4 had a beer or mixed drink for $134 plus tip. Many seafood places will show better quality for this price point. Tin roof in dining causrd a noise problem and made it has to converse. Lovely and helpful server. Last on my go back list! Sorry!More

This place is awesome. To fully appreciate the experience take the time to read the "menu/newspaper". The staff was great and the food was very well prepared. It was an excellent dinner. We will definitely be back here.

We have been in Lewes/Rehoboth area for a few days this has been by far the best place we have eaten. 4 of us ordered the Admiral’s Feast and everything was excellent! Crab Legs and Shrimp were great and there house seasoning was good as...well. Highly recommend if looking for seafood in the area.More

Party of 5 for dinner. Great draft beer and good prices. Crabby stories were a fun read on the menu too. Appetizers we had crab balls and corn balls. Both came with their special seaman sauce. Like the corn balls better than crab. Two rock...fish sandwiches, one fish and chips, one NY Strip steak and one shrimp salad sandwich. Good food, service was attentive and beer was cold.More

We went to this restaurant after a long rainy day shopping at the outlets and were desperately hungry. We were sat right away. Old bay popcorn immediately serviced. Our appetizer of crab pretzel came quickly and was good. I had Maryland crab soup which was...very good along with hush puppies, also very good. My husband had the rockfish stuffed with crab cake which he also enjoyed. Restaurant was good, I’m not sure why there are bad reviews of this place. My husbands loved the snarky t-shirts and the clear appreciation to all first responders, he couldn’t resist buying one. We would come here again.More

On my way out of Rehoboth we stop at an interesting Restaurant, Crabby Dick’s. Looks small outside but the dinning area is actually large. Both my wife and I ordered the Blackened Rockfish. When the dish arrived I was a little disappointed at the serving...size. It was a small portion. It was also way over seasoned. I did order a Beer but needed to ask for water. After I scraped most of the seasoning off It was still over bearing. The vegetables were great! Our server was new and when we asked about the Rockfish she said she had not tried it. When we arrived the system was also down so we had to pay cash because no one wants to give a written copy of your credit card. I do give the rest rooms my highest compliment as there were four individual rooms and they were modern and spotless. I really wanted to get one of those $17 Tee Shirts they sell because they were unique. I look around and saw that other customers meals looked great. I saw appetizers and buckets of seafood to include crab legs. Wished I ordered that instead! I will give the Crabby Dick’s another go later this year. Our server was Laura. She was very nice. We still gave a 20 percent tip.More

My family and I were excited to visit this restaurant on our family getaway. I’m disappointed that I have to write a bad review because our server was very friendly (that’s the only positive). My husband and I ordered the steampots…there was absolutely no seasoning...whatsoever.Everything was completely bland. Our crab legs were not fresh at all. We took the crab legs in a box, once we got back to our hotel we noticed a really bad “fishy” smell and tossed the crab legs in the trash. My children had the crab and shrimp Alfredo and they said that their food had “no taste.” The mixed drinks were like mock tails, I seriously doubt that there was any alcohol at all. We spent $173 excluding a tip and we expected to at least get what we paid for. To add insult to injury, my husband and I woke up the next day feeling like we had a stomach bug. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.More

Friendly staff, manager (I think) checked on us several times, as well as the waitress. Large quantity of food. The crab balls were delicious! I also ordered the bbq chicken sandwich, which had a LOT of bbq sauce on it (sweet bbq sauce). It was...too much sauce for my preference, but that's not their fault. I also think if it was on a harder roll it would have been better, it got a little mushy with all the sauce. In the future I will ask for less if possible. My husband had the fried oyster po boy and he said it was delicious.More

Four friends going to dinner and excited all day looking forward to great seafood. The service and wait staff all very nice and attentive. We waited one hour and was not busy maybe staffing issues. Many full sections completely empty and still waiting one hour....All four of us hated each of the four different entries. I got the major dick seafood combo with mussels, 6 clams, 12 shrimp and one crab leg cluster. 0 flavor and no seasoning. The mussels and shrimp rubbery, overcooked and dried out. I am big seafood lover and most combos come with a white wine, garlic butter sauce with lemon. There was no sauce of any kind. It was a waste for the price. One friend got the steamed mussels, all dry and no sauce/broth. Rubbery mussels. We asked for bread, even to pay for it and none was bought. My other two friends - one got pasta and was over saturated in cream sauce. My third friend got the fish that over cooked, dry and over saturated in cream sauce. Our thoughts of having a good evening was changed into a bad overall dining experience. First time anywhere that I had seafood so bad.More

This was our first visit and we'll definitely go back. Our Server, Ryan asked if we wanted popcorn when he took our order, and if we wanted Old Bay with it. We said yes. What a nice touch! Beautifully popped popcorn, delicious and loved the...Old Bay sprinkled over it. He even offered us a second portion, but we didn't want to stuff on popcorn and not be able to eat our lunch. I ordered a Crab Pretzel. It was a nice size soft pretzel, with crab dip on top and melted cheese on top. Very good. It could have been a little hotter, but then I like all my food to be very hot. Served with a creamy mustard dip. Really enjoyed it. My husband ordered a Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwich with chips. It was huge and loaded with nice size pieces of chicken and cheese. He said it was the best Chicken Cheesesteak he's ever had anywhere, and he's had quite a few of them. He would suggest they cut it in half, before serving, as it is such a big sandwich. The chips were excellent- tasted homemade. Do prefer them hot, though, if there is a way to warm them up before they are served. We really enjoyed the food here. Ryan was very friendly and helpful. All the staff were very pleasant. The restaurant was clean and the bathrooms looked like they has recently been re-done.More

How does this restaurant stay in business? 4 people ate dinner. 3 entrees were bad and one was okay. Decent service and great location but that's not enough to offset bad lukewarm food. The owner's also own Cooter Browns in downtown Rehoboth. They are on...a downhill slide.More

Tourist trap. Prices are attractive but don't be fooled. When we arrived in Friday at 5pm and the parking lot was empty we should have known. The crab soup was not good at all however, the crabcake itself was OK, nothing was appealing but what...we ate here. We have been here once before in the last 10 years and we thought we would try it again. We will not do that again. Our waitress was so very slow. It was awful, we just wanted to leave.More

This was my first time here for dinner. Reservations are not accepted here. It is first come, first serve. I called before we left our nearby hotel. The hostess said there was no wait for a party of two so we drove there immediately. We...requested outside seating, when we arrived. We were seated immediately outside. Our server, Hailey apologized for being short of staff. Hailey was very friendly. I started with and enjoyed my Bullet Manhattan. I tried their cup of cream of crab soup for $6.95, which was very heavy, but, was tasty. I also enjoyed my crab & shrimp also in heavy crab sauce over pasta with two pieces of toasted garlic bread for $21.95. Our total bill was $70 less gratuities. I will continue to return here for cream of crab soup and other seafood.More

We had visited Crabby Dick’s during the off season and we loved it! We could not wait to return which happened to be during the summer. It was ridiculously busy and the store had slim pickings since most of the inventory seemed to have been...bought. However the food was still delicious and despite probably being tired and over worked, the staff were friendly and helpful. We look forward to being back again.More

From Crabby Dick's you continue south on Rt. 1 and it takes you to the Maryland line which is the beginning of Ocean City.
