I was visiting family in Wisconsin and so a Friday Fish Fry was an absolute requirement. We had a party of over a dozen, but Crabby Dave's was very accommodating and our table was ready right on time. We started with some orders of the deep-fried Cheese Curds, a Wisconsin specialty. They were out of this world excellent, nice and... More

This restaurant was nice and friendly servers and food was prepared fresh. No need to wait a long time or to be seated the times I had visited the establishment.

Best BAKED FRENCH ONION SOUP in Marshfield. Love Christine, Such a wonderful waitress, she's gotten to know us personally over the years. Love Ariel, her laugh could knock you out of your seat. They know my order (and my son's) before we even sit down. So welcoming, WHY WOULDN'T you want to come back?!? ;)

The Reuben Hamburger and the Italian Chicken Sandwich were supreme! My husband and I were very pleased. The French Fries were perfect. The Brown Cow cheesecake, however, was to die for....better than Cheesecake Factory back home in Ohio.

The first thing I noticed was the server's lack of a welcoming smile or greeting. The taste of the food was average, and not at all hot. Even the soup and fried pickles were barely warm.

Friday Fish Fry in Wisconsin is a long standing tradition. Fish offered is breaded or not. Friends & family enjoyed the fish while I had a great salad. Fresh greens & meat in salad. Right sized portions. Great value! Friendly waitresses. Full bar. Very accommodating of groups! (Sept 2015 had a group of 12/ June 2016 group of 7)

Food quality is excellent, tasty nice sized portions. However, the dining area is adjacent to the bar which on a weekend night is very noisy. Also, some of the wait staff is very loud, but fun loving. You have to be in the right mood to enjoy this atmosphere. But keep in mind that the food is great, especially the... More

We had a late morning appointment in Marshfield and wanted to go for lunch before driving home. I had researched online for restaurants in Marshfield and Crabby Dave's came up as one with good reviews. The inside is drab and nothing special so we were surprised that the food was made fresh and to order. The onion soup was fabulous.... More

The ladies and I went for lunch after work, around 12:30pm. It wasn't very busy, we sat down right away. A very nice server, told us the specials. We all had the Chicken BLT Salad. It was very good. We will go back again.

Excellent salads for the cost. We always call ahead and the food is ready when we get there. Excellent service.
