“Oysters and Music!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We've never been to this location before, but have already been back since our first visit. Good, friendly service and yummy food. Drinks can be pricey unless you hit happy hour. We came for the oysters which were very reasonably priced, but also enjoyed some delicious fish spread and conch fritters. Great location across the street from the beach (although a bit difficult to get into). Live music on the patio was a great plus and we will be back!

If you love seafood, and you are on a budget, while you are in Clearwater Beach, this is the place to go. Casual food and casual clothing. Good food and good prices.

“Far from what we expected”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

The calm chowder was average,"Fresh Oysters WERE NOT FRESH. The daily special " FRESH GROUPER" was over- grilled ,thin ,dry,and hard. The mashed potatoes were instant potatoes not real potatoes. The steamed broccoli as was watched was actually frozen ,tied in a plastic bag then put in the microwave and heated. As we noticed other meals coming out of the kitchen, almost EVERYTHING came out of the microwave!!!!! NOT MY KIND OF PLACE !!! STAY AWAY!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

“Excellent Food, Service & Ambiance!!!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We were at Clearwater Beach for a visit & decided to go to Crabby Bills for lunch. It was our 1st visit to a Crabby Bills so we had no expectations.

The food came out quick, fresh & properly cooked. My husband (who is a corporate chef) commented how fresh the oysters on the 1/2 shell were & that they were the best he had tasted since he left Louisianna. An additional + was that it was so reasonably priced to top it all off!
Our server Ray was attentive, personable, professional & very effecient.

We were so pleasantly surprised by the "WHOLE" experience that we have already decided the next time we are in Clearwater beach-Crabby Bills will be on the "must do" list! The only difference will be that we will sit on the roof deck & enjoy the ocean view!
