My mom and I were staying at a local hotel and stopped by Crabbys for our evening meal. I’m a server, so I’m a hard critic. Tonight we had Dakota and he did an AMAZING job! It was a hot day and we had two...refreshing waters in front of us the second we sat down without even having to ask. He asked if the fans were okay or if he wanted him to move them towards us or away from us. He dropped off the coconut shrimp and told us he’d be back over in case we needed more dipping sauce and what do you know, we ran out and within a few seconds he was back with more! What impressed me more is after our meals came he did a check back after we tried our food to make sure everything came out good! Which is something every waiter should do but not many take the time. Our drinks were filled without even having to ask which is bonus points. He was very friendly and had great, positive energy! Today is our last day of vacation and that was our last dinner, thank you Dakota for making it such a great experience! ❤️More

Jordon was an excellent bartender! Their Thunder Juice drink is incredible, especially on a hot day. Their grouper tacos were great! The usual good views of the beach and great atmosphere. Their Crab Cake Benedict breakfast with bacon was excellent. John was a great waiter...and very friendly! One of my go to places for 15 plus years and gets better every time!More

This is a chill place, coming from LA our beach restaurants all feel like they sold out, this place though, its got the classic beach cantina feels. Service was excellent, our waitress Boots was super nice, very perky attitude, and a looker. Her recommendations were...on point, the banter was delightful, and the service was quick. One second she took our orders and then bam our drinks were there, then you blink and bam she's back with our food, gave me I dream of genie vibes. The food is great, lots of seafood choices: ahi tuna was nice, the ez peel shrimp was bomb, and never tried gator bites but pretty damn good. The drinks were cool, lots of fun cocktails like the bompop and rum runner, by the way, you can get 32oz buckets of drink, needless to say, you're gonna have a fun time. Would definitely come again.More

Went to grab a bite at this place and enjoy the view in a chill, unstuffy restaurant. Our waitress Boots was adorable and charming and made our visit so memorable. She was attentive and always ready when we needed to order more things and even...with our requests for extra condiments and sides, she never showed impatience and remained pleasant the entire time! The restaurant is like so many others you find along that strip, but we'll definitely come back on our next vacation because of the excellent service!More

So I visited with my family a short while ago, and we had the pleasure of having Boots as our server (not sure if that's her actual name or not). The service was top tier! Consistently checked in on us, but not in a weird...pushy way. Pleasant personality, and she went above and beyond making my kids feel comfortable. The food and atmosphere were both great, but the service really pushed it to a whole new level. We will be back!More

We ate at Crabby's Beachwalk Bar & Grill 3 times during are week long stay at Clearwater Beach. It was the best breakfast on the beach! We also did the Crabby's bar crawl which was an event in itself! What brought it all together was...John T. He just may have been the best server I have ever encountered. He is the type of guy that when you leave your table you will have laughter in the air and a smile on your face, no matter the mood you were in when you sat down. His dedication to his job in this day and age still gives us hope that John T. is not a dying breed.More

After spending a hot day at Clearwater Beach my family and I wanted to experience a Floridian beach front seafood restaurant. We were seated right away and soon met our server, Boots (nickname given by her father). She was very attentive, nothing seemed too much...trouble for her, very sociable and did everything with a smile which greatly enhanced our experience. The food overall was great, my Dad was a little unhappy about the small size of the oysters considering the price which we thought was expensive. I personally loved the Mahi Mahi fish caribbean style, Mum also loved the crab cake and we all shared a large serving of shrimp (appetizer) which went down well with everybody. The 'Florida Sunset' cocktail was refreshing especially on a hot day, we had a few of these. The key lime pie was also good. The worst part in this restaurant was the restroom, although I didn't use the facilities myself, both male and female family members all commented on the state of cleanliness in the toilets, maybe staff could make regular checks to ensure the restrooms are maintained to a higher standard, matching the great food and service. Would still visit again if in the area.More
