Description: The Crazy Crab provides a spectacular waterfront dining experience overlooking beautiful Jarvis Creek. Our menu is derived from Low Country recipes, and each entree is individually prepared to order. Our Alaskan Snow Crab Legs are the best on the island - winning local awards for multiple years. We provide entertainment for the whole family with an onsite playground, the largest salt water fish tank on Hilton Head, live music and crab races during the summer, and a perfect view of breathtaking Low Country sunsets. We have both indoor and outdoor seating on our expansive deck and are pet friendly. The Crazy Crab at Jarvis Creek is perfect for your rehearsal dinner or private party. During non-peak times of the year, a part of the restaurant can be curtained-off for your private event, seating up to 80 individuals. The covered outside deck area can seat almost 100 guests with an outdoor bar area and options for private oyster roasts or Low Country boils. Come visit us and see why we have been a local favorite for over 30 years!

loved the food ,friendly service. it's a large family style restaurant with great views. We love going to Hilton Head spring time and always stop in for lunch or dinner at the crazy crab as we come on the island.

Needs updating, thorough cleaning and maybe a new Chef!! The smell from the moment you walk in makes you wonder if it's clean! We've patronized Crazy Crab every year for many years but we won't be back!! The clam chowder was served luke warm and didn't taste good. The 'drink special' Bloody Mary tasted like an order of cocktail sauce mixed with vodka. The blackened mahi mahi tasted good, but the hush puppies and the rest of the order was only palatable. But there are MUCH better restaurants on Hilton Head Island.

My wife and I shared a grilled platter. Good fish, great slaw. Waiter disappeared for long periods of time and they were not that busy.

We stopped here to have lunch - but it was not our first choice for lunch. Our first choice was not open. We all had decent meals and the service was OK. I am not certain I would rush back to the place but the meal was enjoyable, the place was clean and pleasant and the food was worth the 3 stars.

Let me keep it simple, the food was good; typical fresh seafood as expected. Crab legs were fresh, but the mahi mahi wasn't so much. Crabcakes were decent but not as spectacular as Phillips. Cost of food was as expected for seafood restaurant. One thing I wanna say, the restaurant was smelly.
