We went to the "outdoor" deck, which is on the 3rd floor. It is not at all outdoor but just has big windows. We had to stand there with our server for 5 minutes while a couple of older woman in terribly revealing clothing took...at least 30 pictures of themselves hugged up against our table. They ignored our server as she tried to get them to move. When we (My fiancé and I) finally squeezed through there was a man and woman in the way of my seat by the wall with his camera out who stated he was "in line" to take pictures next . The sun was setting and I guess our seat was for some reason the perfect shot of a sunset nobody had ever seen. As we got seated our server, visibly angry, said sorry and then just left. The 2 woman squeezed back next to us while the camera man in line was leaning on the back of my chair. We waited for a couple minutes but the pictures continued while their breasts bounced around inches from our face trying to get the best angle. We finally stood up (physically brushing everyone aside because of so little room) gave our piece of mind and left to find another place to eat. Luckily while passing the 2nd floor on our way out we were met by a nice young man who worked there. Upon telling him how ridiculous our experience was he seated us on his floor and there we had amazing service and great food.More

We visited on a early evening in June. The service was great and my entire family loved their meals. We had the crab & spinach dip, grouper taco’s, coconut combo platter and the tuna bowl. We will definitely visit again if we’re in the area....Oh bonus, the restaurant was very clean. That is sometimes an issue in a beach community with hundreds of sandy patrons visiting daily.More

We are on vacation from Cincinnati, we stayed right down from The Salty Crab North and decided our first night in town to stop in. Eddy was out waiting and holy cow is that dude the best, he literally had us laughing and smiling. It...was one of the most genuine experiences in my life having him as our waiter. Not to mention the food, the best PoBoy I’ve ever had in my life and phenomenal pizza! Would give Eddy and The Salty Crab a even higher rating if I could!More

Casual restaurant with great live musician. Volume was just right for listening and hearing table conversation. Friendly and attentive service and quick service from the bar. Great meal of fresh salad, perfectly cooked steak, loaded fries and delicious Bairdi crab with drawn butter and lemon....Good place to people watch too through the open overhead doors.More

I didn’t see anyone dressed like that when we were there in May. Everyone had shirts & shorts or jeans on. But it was great! We really enjoyed the service & the food.
