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!

My family loves seafood (I not only don't love it, but don't eat it). That said, my family loves this restaurant. There are limited non seafood options, but my kids and husband love their signature crab and really everything they gopet there. We ended up with a window seat overlooking the marsh so I was happy too! My favorite thing there is the sea salt scrub in the bathroom, it leaves your skin so soft! You can buy some on the way out.

If we lived here it would be worth the drive on a regular basis Food was excellent. Our waiter Scott was as good as we have had any where in the world. Would return with him as waiter in a heartbeat. Hush puppies were great as was the she crab soup and bbq shrimp.

This is another one of those "tourist" restaurants that sells t-shirts and salt-scrub. The food is a bit over-priced and pretty typical of what you can find on the island (Hudsons, etc.). For some reason the wait at these restaurants is long if you get there much after 6:30 - we went at 6:00 and didn't have to wait at all, but by the time we were done we overhead the wait was about an hour, and this was in the middle of the week. The setting is what makes this place special - if the weather is nice ask to be seated on the back porch that overlooks Jarvis Creek - you can see the Carolina Coastal Museum from here too. There's a children's play area outside and wandering cats (very friendly). The outside bar is great - not crowded on the night we were there. Most of the entrees were over $20 except for the 1# shrimp boil - I think it was around $16 and lots of shrimp. Tip: ask for little or no of the seasoning they heavily sprinkle on (Bay's?)

Best seafood restaurant on the island! The food was to die for! I am in love with the hush puppies. Although the food was amazing, the service was the best part. Our server, Beth, was fantastic! She is so friendly. We will definitely be back!

We went here for Dinner and probably should have for lunch instead but overall it was pretty good. I wasn't crazy about the Shrimp gumbo though.
