I like Crabby Joe's mostly because I luv their 'pulled pork sandwich', it's all I've ever eaten there. The staff have always been reasonably efficient and friendly in the 7 or 8 times we've been there, combine that with fair prices ($25 + tip for two people) and you've got a very good lunch experience. Of course without the 'pulled pork' i'd probably just rate it average as the ambience and decor are a bit of a downer. To top it all and keep you coming back, make use of their 'free meal' ticket, 5 meals gets you the sixth free.

We were there for dinner on a Saturday night. We chose this restaurant because it was very close to our hotel-Best Western. We dined in the bar area.
Let me start off by saying the bartender tending us was excellent.
My daughter and I ordered the steak and this may go down as the worse dinner we have ever had. We ordered our steaks medium rare and mine came out 'blue' and I had to send it back. Our baked potato was at least 2 days old if not more!!!! The inside of the baked potato should be lovely white, fluffy and yummy. All three of our potatoes were brown and dried out, the lining inside the skin was actually black. I have never ever has rubbery, shriveled -up , brown asparagus. I am not kidding here, my steak knife could not cut it!! It looked like it was recooked a couple of times.
Shame Shame Shame Crabby Joe's!!

I thought this might be a seafood place, but it is a hodge-podge of many things, none of them done well. My Pad Thai was botched with all sweet and no hot spice to it. When I commented, our friendly waitress brought a side of hot sauce and admitted that the cook made a mistake. My wife's Caesar salad had so much garlic it bit her tongue and her club sandwich was a disappointment. Other guests had burgers with goat cheese that they described as bad. The place is noisy, even when partly full, with loud music PLUS many TVs going. Will not go back

Visited this summer on a trip to the Waterloo area. This was one of the worst dining experiences. Server totally forgot to order my food. Wait staff brought meals for others and then left. Had to flag down the server and ask about my food. Said she would check and then never returned. Flagged down another waiter and asked about food which I then received after my fellow diners plates were already cleared. Okay, I understand that mistakes are sometimes made. But then she brought the bill while I was still eating! No offer of dessert or coffee. No apology. Guess what that means? No return visit!

The wings were good. Typical bar experience. Would be a good place to go watch a game with some friends.
