“No crabs to eat here!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Contrary to its name, it does not serve crab, tho it has a good "fishing bar" and very nice outdoor dining. Food is mediocre, but it caters to a marina and charter boat clientele mostly. Good place to find out where they are biting.

“Best onion rings ever”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Perch and walleye very good. Onion rings excellent! Service was good. Someone smoking electronic cigarette - not sure what the law is on this

“Nice view of the water”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Good service and good food. We both had perch sandwiches which were plentiful and just right on the breading.

“Appetizers”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We we're on our annual fishing trip last week, and stopped in for a few beers and appetizers. We sat on the deck next to the water and had a few buckets of beer. The waitress was friendly and even brought out some checks mix. A few of us had appetizers that we're good. If your looking for dinner go elsewhere.

“Good place to eat outdoors right on the water”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We come camping at East Harbor State Park every summer and always eat one meal at Crabby Joe's. Best thing about this restaurant is its location; we love sitting outside on the deck and watching the boats come and go. Service has never been bad for us, though this visit when we requested something outside the hostess hemmed and hawed about how she just seated somebody else out there and she didn't want to overwhelm the waitress... After we explained we weren't in any rush she reluctantly seated us outside. Kind of odd, especially considering it wasn't that crowded out there. Our waitress was great, didn't seem to be having any problem keeping up with her tables. Food is decent but nothing that will knock your socks off. We had fish sandwiches - one perch and one walleye. We'll definitely return next time we're in town.
