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...

My dinner was a great pleasure. Ate by myself at the bar. The salad was good and the seared scallops were some of the best I have eaten. Service was professional and friendly. Would definitively return.

Let me preface my review with, "I left this place feeling 'Crabby.'" While the food was decent, the service was horrible. I will not go back.

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.

Bad food worse service Everytime we needed refills my husband had to walk our empty glasses to the bar, seafood chowder...was very disappointing. When we expressed our disappointment with our food, the server offered absolutely no concern. However to express our experience with her meant having to track her down, she was very inattentive. Which is sad since we were... More

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!

Thank octoberhart
