Reviewed December 30, 2013

Ryan Michaels formerely Crabby's is a quiet local place where the food is good and you can BYO, there is always something for every appetite on the menu whether large or small. Reservations on weekend needed, Good value for money and you can watch boats on the Metedeconk too

“Terrible.”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We had great burgers on a previous visit and decided to return for dinner. The staff was very nice but the food was terrible.
I'm surprised our waitress didn't ask if everything was OK with so much food left on our plates. The two chicken dishes served at our table were so bad they were strange. One could not have been from a chef's recipe and the other was "too spicy". The side dishes weren't any better. We were very disappointed.
PS-The restaurant was fairly empty for a Friday night.

“Great lunch, great first impression.”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time, and we will definitely return!
We came in for a late lunch. I had a grilled fish taco with fries, and Pussycat had the signature burger with fries. Both plates were nicely presented, and our meals were perfectly cooked, and very tasty. I had rice pudding, and she had a devils food chocolate cake.
Desserts, like everything else on the menu, are fresh and made from scratch.
It's BYOB, and the small dry bar behind the dining room looks a bit awkward and they lose atmosphere points for that, but everything else is aces.
I can't wait to go back and try the dinner menu.

“Great BYOB Dinner spot”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Went to Ryan Michaels the other night for dinner. Let me say the food was great, I can't complain about that. They were not crowded, and the service was excellent. My only issue is that the advertized price(s) on the menu are either old, or just plain confusing. For example, the half-rack of rib appetizer is less costly than the dinner half-rack ($15.99 vs $20.99). Each has the exact same description. Then, on my bill, I was charged $17.99 for the appetizer portion? Huh? So while the prices/billing was a bit in error, the food was otherwise deliciious. I can't give them an excellent though because of that. Also, they are located adjacent to a Marina, so you do have to drive down a long driveway to find them. Not difficult, just pay attention and you'll have no troubles.
