Our restaurant features panoramic views of the marina and lake from both our indoor and outdoor dining areas. Our specialty is seafood but amazing land lover favorites aren't left off of our menu! You'll enjoy an all day happy hour, local live music on the weekends, and a pet friendly deck. We are just a couple short miles off 192 which lends to our unique and relaxed atmosphere.

Surprised with the pleasant service and varied menu at reasonable prices. Nice to sit outside with views of the marina and lake.

“Great Seafood in St Cloud”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

I travel to St Cloud to visit friends at least twice a year ...Even if it is a short visit i try to eat at Crabby Bills at least twice...it is located out of the way at waters edge on a rather large lake at the edge of town..you can be seated inside with large windows or on the outside deck area..Always a Great View..The menu has a great selection with a varied selection of seafoods.Many types of fish to choose from..i almost always try something different..Daily specials include different combinations also.Service is always great but this time our waiter was above that..[Josh]..I'll be back for sure on our next trip..

“Excellent food - Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

This location is off the beaten path from Orlando. We tried new food - for us - blue crab, and found it enjoyable. The food was delivered hot - there was plenty of it, and our server treated us well. The restaurant is on a lake and harbor that provides a nice place to walk off a great meal. Come early as parking is somewhat limited in the area.

“Sticky, dirty table. Plastic coated menu stuck to the table.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Out of Jumbo Caribbean Lobster Tail. Out of Coconut Shrimp Dinner. Out of Soft Shell Blue Crab. Out of management with an ability to plan.

The Atlantic Sea Scallops were small and very few were served. The Southern String Beans came with a broth flavored with vinegar, onion, and bacon, but they looked and tasted as if they came straight from a can. Might they have been overcooked on purpose to acquire that unmistakeable texture and flavor?

The shrimp that came with the Cabby's Broiled Seafood Combination were tasty and just right.

Blue Moon on tap.

Will I return? No, I'll probably dine where the food is better, and the tables are clean.

Will I recommend it? No.

Dan S, General Manager at Crabby Bill's - St. Cloud, responded to this review, March 21, 2013
Thank you so much for your recent review of our Restaurant. We like to think we are great at what we do, however when we get reviews like this it shows us how far we have to go. I am Dan Snyder General Manager of Crabby Bills St. Cloud. I personally apologize for this visit. We clearly have lots to address. Your perspective is pricelss as we simply become complacient, as much as we hate to admit it. Your review helps to bring things back into perspective. All the opportunities you outlined for us are simple fixes, it never should have ended up the way it did. I invite you back, incognito, and you will see the progress we are making here daily which will include the things you pointed out. I hope you ask for me before you leave and share your second experience. I look forward to hearing how great it is and thanking you for your feedback that helped us get there. Tahnk you again, I look forward to seeing you soon!!!
