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!

We had two lunches here during our weeklong stay on HHI, and both were absolutely wonderful. The crab was great on both visits, but the atmosphere is what really makes the meal. Eat outside. Inside, you're just at another seafood restaurant. Outside, you have a lovely view to enjoy, a kids play area to keep any little ones occupied, a consistent breeze from the ceiling fans...we were so relaxed and happy on their porch, we didn't want to leave. Service was fine. Raw bar oysters were on the small side and the water tastes awful but other than those minor issues, we were very pleased. We'll definitely be back on future trips.

We loved the live music, the hermit crab races, and the playground for the kids! Awesome atmosphere and service! The food is good, albeit, expensive. Well worth it though for the entertainment.

Good ample food well sighted on Jarvis Creek. Can be very busy but there's good parking. Some of the batter can be on the heavy side but the food is of a dependant quality

THere are 2 Crazy Crabs on the island, and the one on the NE end of the island is the one I prefer. It is larger, has better parking, and has a nice outdoor dining area, where you can get a pretty nice view of the salt marsh and a shrimp boat. If you want to avoid crowds, go for lunch, as the evening crows are often very large and has a resultant long wait time. The food is by no means gourmet, but neither are the prices.

We enjoyed great spacious atmosphere out on the deck overlooking the water - great service from our host and exceptional food. The apetizer and the main courses were just fantastic. It was a perfect evening! I ordered the 1 1/4 Lobster with Baked Potato and Asparagus. When the dish was brought out - to my surprise there were 4-5 nice size shrimp along side the lobster....I thought I got the wrong order because the menu did not mention this nor did our host. When I asked - our host confirmed it was my order and said that some dishes come with little surprises. SMILE!!!
