About
A Spectacular Waterfront Dining Experience Overlooking Hilton Head Island's Famous Harbour Town Marina The Crazy Crab menu is derived from Lowcountry recipes, and each entree is individually prepared to order. The Alaskan Snow Crab Legs are the best on the Island - winning local awards for multiple years. There is plenty of family entertainment just outside the front door with the Harbour Town Lighthouse, a massive playground, live music in the summer, and amazing views of Calibogue Sound. The Crazy Crab bar provides a nice cozy atmosphere to relax after a round of golf at one of the prestigious Sea Pines golf courses.

The food was excellent and they were willing to substitute when my husband wanted something other than shrimp in his low country seafood pot. The lobster tails were quite reasonably priced.

After a long walk in the forest preserve we stopped for lunch at Crazy Crab. I had a delicious broiled seafood plate and hubby had Crab cakes. The food is so fresh and perfectly prepared. So good.
