The outside of Gettin' Crabby doesn't look like much. It is in an old Florida fishing village. The old building adds to the charm. The seafood is fresh and prepared to perfection. My favorites are Cracked Conch and Fried Shrimp. Their fish is excellent also. The service was excellent. There isn't a lot of parking.

Kind of pricey. Good selection of seafood. We and the fried oyster appetizer which was good and catch of the day sandwich. Good but not a big serving and you get your choice of one side. Happy hour is 3-6pm and it's a $1 off apps, draft beer and wine. Very casual. Small inside. Very little parking. Good selection of... More

This place is a small dive bar restaurant. But, the food is to die for!. I had the fried oysters that I could not finish because of the amount. My wife had the crab cake and had little fillers and a lot of crab. Go very hungry or just get the appetizers. Great service in a cozy place..

It was my first time to Crabby's. Food is fantastic and the service is great. How it hasn't been featured as one of the best seafood 'dives' in Florida is beyond me. I had some of the best fried oysters ever, and the Key Lime pie was heavenly. We will be back.

The good: This joint offered some of the freshest fish I've ever had. It was well prepared, tasty and the service was very attentive... but that's where the good ended. If that's all you're looking for, well you've found your place. The building this restaurant is located in is a D-U-M-P, as is the oh-so-small parking lot. I'm guessing that's... More

Great Key West style operation sliding toward the sand bar. Sanitation, maintenance and service continue to go out with the tide Food palatable to good but environment sketchy Please save this ship from drifting upon the shoals

Along with my wife and another couple we stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. Had the bar in the back to ourselves. We each started with one of their craft beers they have on tap, they have a half dozen or so to choose from. We then ordered a couple appetizers, the Royal Red shrimp, and the cracked conch, the...

Went in to place a take out order for one.Sat at the bar, which had a great selection of draft beers. The staff was very helpful in deciding what to order and the wait was minimal. I had the special with chunked crab atop a fabulous white fish. Their cucumber salad with tomatoes was out of this world. Will go... More
