3 years ago we ate here, and loved it. Service was a bit slow, but the food was good and we were not in a hurry. So we planned on going back again the next year while on vacation. Saw a sign on the door...More

The food and service were so bad at Crabbys that me and the wife now refer to having a bowel movement as taking a crabby. Eat here at your own risk.

It's a barely piratey, pirate theme restaurant serving average-quality steaks at twice the price-- and you have to cook it yourself on a hot rock that spits grease all over your clothes. If you can get a $20 discount coupon it's probably worth it because...More

Terrible. We waited over an hour, still no food, just an excuse from our waiter "we have a party of 50 so our kitchen is backed up". Really? The restaurant was not full by any means, party of 50 or not, that should not have...More

Crabby' had excellent food, although don't expect a huge plate of it. It is more of a fine dining restaurant with smaller portions. The entrees are served on hot lava rocks, which are half cooked when they come to your table-you complete the cooking! Pretty...More
