Great recommendation about dining at our Harbour Town location! Same great menu, lots of familiar faces and a family-friendly environment. Thank you for the review!

I loved this place, the food is great. The interior is so nautical and little bit rustic, really felt "at home" here. Right on the water, would definately come back. My sisters and Mom and I loved it.

Checked the website and menu and headed to Crazy Crab. Whoops. They've had a fire and are closed, undergoing renovation. Maybe notice on the website would help.

Outstanding Food, Atmosphere and Service! Our waiter Scott was as good as they get. Fast, friendly and efficient! We've been coming to Hilton Head since 1976 and since Crazy Crab opened it has been one of our favorites.

Description
The Crazy Crab provides a spectacular waterfront dining experience overlooking beautiful Jarvis Creek. Our menu is derived from Low Country recipes, and each entree is individually prepared to order. Our Alaskan Snow Crab Legs are the best on the island - winning local awards for multiple years. We provide entertainment for the whole family with an onsite playground, the largest salt water fish tank on Hilton Head, live music and crab races during the summer, and a perfect view of breathtaking Low Country sunsets. We have both indoor and outdoor seating on our expansive deck and are pet friendly. The Crazy Crab at Jarvis Creek is perfect for your rehearsal dinner or private party. During non-peak times of the year, a part of the restaurant can be curtained-off for your private event, seating up to 80 individuals. The covered outside deck area can seat almost 100 guests with an outdoor bar area and options for private oyster roasts or Low Country boils. Come visit us and see why we have been a local favorite for over 30 years!
