Met up with a friend who recommended Crab Catchers. I'm glad we went. The food was great, and the atmosphere was even greater! We sat at the bar, and it was like we were with old friends. The drinks were excellent and strong - well worth the money. The food was tops! I had all you can eat crab legs.... More

We ate ("dined" is too fancy a word) here on a Sunday night. As we walked up to the entrance, we almost turned around and left because of the sketchy appearance of the place but decided to press on and give it a try since it had such great online reviews. If you visit here, be prepared to sit in... More

Crab Catchers is a good restaurant on the water in Little River. We have dined here 3 times over the last 3 months. The food was fantastic and the portions were huge. Seafood caught that morning is served there in the afternoon. Their "all you can eat" specials are exactly that (they will bring all you can eat for a... More

This formerly little known restaurant has been a favorite for many years. We love to sit on the deck and watch the waterway or the salt march. In other visits it had superbly cooked seafood. Perhaps popularity has tainted it. Hopefully, the cook just had a bad 2 days. The fried oysters were slightly overdone on one trip and the... More

Local hangout with many daily specials. We were directed here by a local. The clam chowder had celery and herbs. Gumbo hearty flavors. Seafood platter grouper, shrimp- true Calabash light batter, crab cake, deviled crab and add scallops $8 and a separate dinner of oysters, which were excellent, and we have everything covered, spendy but we had enough take away...

Been to Crab Catchers 3 times this year with my daughter visiting from RI and she raved about the hominess and the great food. Then we visited with my son from Spartanburg & his Girlfriend and my granddaughter and they also raved about the food. The steamed crab legs which we had this time were so good we ordered another...

Crab Catchers is in a great location overlooking the waterway. They have in or outside dining which gives you an excellent view of the water and the boats going by. While enjoying the view, you can also enjoy the great food and excellent service.

We went here for lunch last week. My wife had the soft shell crab sandwich and I had the crab cake sandwich special which included fries and a drink. Both were very good. Outdoor seating is a plus. Reasonably priced.

This is one of our favorite spots. A fun place to eat and be served outside in the bright sunshine. My husband's choice place to have oysters when we arrive in South Carolina. I enjoy the fried shrimp. I was however disappointed with the cole slaw. It seems they added pickle to it and that is not to my liking.... More
