Best food in the area (seafood or otherwise). Great location - sits on the Intracoastal Waterway with wonderful views. Staff is always friendly and owner will always take the time to speak with the patrons.

Always fresh seafood. The grouper ,crab and flounder are outstanding. Nice quaint place on the water. Crabby{Happy} Hour 4-6 with food specials. Also discount for seniors on food. The grouper sandwich is my favorite.

Love, love, love Crab Catchers. Been coming here for years. They have great food and a lively atmosphere on the deck. Try the local oysters or soft shelled crab in season. Another appetizer we like, fish bites, are always fresh, usually caught that day. You...More
