The ads in the travelers guides called the Crabby Pig fine dinning. Perhaps my defininition of fine dinning is out moded, but I hadn't realized that picnic tables and paper napkins are now considered fine. It is more of a stylized beach shack place than a fancy restaurant.
The wait staff was helpful with the older patrons and offered to let them enter by the exit rather than have them walk around the building to the front door. They did this for the locals and for the tourists. That the locals frequent this restaurant speaks to the quality of the food.
The baby back ribs were outstanding! The ribs were meaty, smoked until the meat fell off the bone and the sauce is homemade. They were the best ribs I've had in years. The broiled crab cakes had very little filler and were served with two sauces. The French fries were worthy of being served in a Belgian friture.
Overall, the food was great at a fair price.

My family and I stopped here on our way through town. Very nice location, reasonably priced, and the food was great!
