A friend suggested this place for lunch recently and it's now my favorite spot for when I'm in Joplin. I had the seafood lunch special which was excellent and service was very good too. Want to come back sometime in the evening for dinner.

We visit Crabby's yearly on our way to tablerock lake. Normally the service is equal to the quality of the food (which is great!) but not this time. They were terribly understaffed as the salads, and entrees took forever. Their bread pudding is great but it takes 15 minutes to prepare so plan ahead.

I've only been here but both times the food was excellent and the service was just about the best I've had anywhere. And the bread pudding is a must order. I'd go just for the bread pudding. It's that good.

Heard about Crabby's from friends in Tulsa. This Restraunt has great seafood and burgers. The seafood soup was also very good and we split a bowl. Shrimp Po Boy sandwich was very good also. Great service. They do take reservations for dinner.

Crabby's atmosphere is relaxing yet upscale. The food is so very good from the excellent seafood chowder to the wonderful specialty dishes to the fish and chips! I recommend the Autumn Harvest Salad, too!

My husband and I shared dinner together at Crabby's and WOW is all I can say. We're from the Bella Vista area and I work here in Joplin so it gave us the opportunity to try this restaurant.

We ordered the snow crab and the grilled vegetables. The veggies were awesome! However, the temperature of the crab was very inconsistent. One end of the crab legs was hot, the other end was cold. The carbonation was off on the sodas - tasted horrible. We did not have a reservation and were seated in an overflow room in the... More

On our way to Oklahoma and looking for a place for dinner. Wife found Crabby's on local review. We were a little skeptical when we pulled into the parking lot. However, we entered and found a very nice dining atmosphere. Menu was very nice, wait staff was attentive. Nice and clean. I had the jumbo shrimp and talapia and my... More

I'm a huge fan of seafood, but good seafood in southwest Missouri is hard to come by. We started with the portobello fries, which were killer. My husband had the scallops and I had snow crab. The best we've had in years. Will be returning!
