Yes. It is a bar and eatery. Yes, at first, near the Dollar General you think "whatever". But you walk in and Crabby's been fishin and your hooked! Great beer selection and a wine list too! Wait staff that is attentive and courteous. And, some great seafood for the price. Try the Ahi tuna salad or the Sea Bass. Or...... More

I think we're in the middle of nowhere, and look what the web drug up ;) My friend & I are on a road trip, neglecting to eat properly until we're too hungry. We like to sit down and enjoy our once a day real meal. At the peak of empty tummies, we walked in to this place. The place... More

The service was terrible! We were there for an hour and a half and I only received one glass of tea. My son never received a drink and I just ended up giving him my water. My husband ordered a beer that never came. The food came out at different times with about 10 minutes between the first plate being... More

Working in a small town two hours away from Joplin. We had a day off so went there for some shopping. Stopped at Crabby's for dinner because we love seafood. Having lived on the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coast we were not expecting this to be a great seafood meal. Wow were we surprised. The atmosphere is great with a... More

My wife and I had heard of this place, and went to give it a try. The layout floor plan of the restaurant is awful. We were seated in a closet, along with 8 other tables. The service, because we were away from the main dining area suffered because of this. Perhaps if we had been seated in the main... More

We had the calamari(which was awesome) and the boursin chicken on risotto, also very good. Clean place, friendly staff, beautiful artwork, this place has a handful of chefs who prepared my order in good time and very artfully presented. This is a good place for drinks and dinner. They do serve nicely behaved children. The artworks are originals, so kindly... More

The food here is the best in Joplin. Whenever I have a guest that wants to eat well, this is where I take them. The location of the building might make you think otherwise. But once you walk inside you are in a world of fine dining and you know it. Great atmosphere and service as well. Highly Recommend.

Hotel front desk recommend Crabby ' s - although chains galore, we prefer to sample local fare. Oh boy, so glad we went with her suggestion. Area looked "iffy" but go in and have an amazing culinary experience! We ordered the blackened salmon & sea scallops served along side mashed potatoes, asparagus & a mixed veggie medley - OMG such...
