You must go inside to order then they bring it out when cooked. Fresh off the boats, not some cheap farmed fish. If you want cheap, order a McDonalds fish sandwich. You want a real Florida experience this is the place you want to be....It's the best fish restaurant in the state. I'm a native who can fish and cook. I've eaten seafood all over the state. I love the specials, it's a great way to try different fish. The cracked conch and conch fritters are awesome! I've NEVER gotten a bad meal here! We're local and eat here all the time. It's our favorite restaurant! It's where we go when my husband "cooks". By the way you clean off your own table.More

While the seafood was delicious, I would not recommend doing a carry-out as we did because the sandwiches were cold even though we reside across the street from the restaurant. The fries were cold and not crisp. Also, I was not informed about the service...charge.More

Stopped for lunch today. We both had the catch of the day fish sandwich, grilled. It was prepared very well and came with very good crispy French fries. We both had a side of coleslaw which was also good. However, my wife ordered a root...beer float that was a huge disappointment. The guy who made it told us that he used Breyer’s ice cream but it could not have been. The substance that they called ice cream never melted even though she waited until the end of the meal to drink it. It looked more like mini marshmallows , gooey and lumpy. Would not advise anyone to order this drink from here.More

I have been eating there for app 4 years and I go back at least twice a week when I can. I have eaten at all of the seafood restaurants around they are ok but I like fresh an they deliver100% of the time. If...you want to know how FRESH cooked seafood taste then go to Crab E Bills. They have great ambience (but not fancy👍🏻) if you like nautical it’s all about fishing an each time I go there I see something different. Prices are based on FRESH an “cooks” that know how to cook fresh seafood. Again they are not fancy but “Everyone” that works there have always been the best an they strive to be better. For people that say it’s pricey well your most likely eating frozen that’s why it cheaper.More

Came here for lunch and was not disappointed. Sat outside and watched pelicans while waiting. Shrimps and grilled flounder were excellent, as were the sweet potato fries. Tried a couple of local beers with lunch. Worth going back.

Amazing smoked fish dip. Delicious blackened fish tacos sweet potato fries and coleslaw. Or try the fresh mahi Reuben but only if you're hungry, because it's huge. Overlooking the water in a casual setting come as you are! First time there but not the last.

I am writing on Crabby Bills Seafood Shop. Last year I came in to buy clams and was shorted 3 and today I returned and purchased two dozen and received 22. I live 30 minutes away so returning is not a simple fix. They also...turned off their food today. Counting to 24 is not hard.More

Tripadvisor suggested we eat here and that was a great choice. A seafood restaurant and retail market to purchase a great selection of fresh and frozen and prepared items as well as t shirts , etc. There is a window to order and you are...given a number for your table. The trays are delivered to you inside or out. We choose to eat outside. My only problem is all that paper and plastic waste that arrive with your beautifully prepared dishes. We had the clam chowder, grouper with shrimp and a fried oyster basket. All perfection. I am looking forwared to regular dishes and silverware.More

Lovely little spot. Great outdoor seating. All fish sold in the market is caught by spear(s). The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. You can walk along the seaside

Thank you for your review!!! We take great pride in being able to say "FRESH AND LOCAL" in regard to our seafood. It just can't get any fresher, unless, of course, you've caught it yourself!

The staff was friendly, the food was good and still hot upon returning home. Portion was a little small, however if I had eaten in I would have mentioned that to the server. We would go back for sure.
