A small, very casual restaurant with an outstanding menu. The seafood specials are outstanding. Live music on certain nights adds to the fun of dinner with good friends. It is one of our regular favorites.

A little hole in the wall that we absolutely love. Oyster shooters are the best! Would recommend this restaurant to any seafood lover but would rather keep it a secret among locals!!!

The food was great. Just over look the building and parking. I will be going back for sure! The atmosphere is relaxing and not stuffy.

If you're looking for great seafood, look no further than Gettin' Crabby. Although not fancy by any means, it does have it's own charm in that it looks like 'old Florida'. It's the kind of place my family would've gone in the old days during a Florida vacation. White paper on the tables, plastic sea creatures hanging on the walls,... More

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.
