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!

“Yummm!!!!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

We decided to go here based on the online menu & were not disappointed. They start you out with bread & hushpuppies, with your choice of regular of house made honey butter that was delicious. We followed this up with the calamari, that was so fresh & cooked just right. The marinara dipping sauce was a great compliment to the dish. One of our party had oysters Rockefeller as her entree. 6 large oysters, topped with spinach & cheese, she described these as very good. I had the stuffed flounder, also fresh caught, & stuffed with a crab & shrimp filling topped with lobster sauce. It was delicious. I definitely recommend checking this place out

“Nothing Crazy about the Crazy Crab”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Crazy Crab is always a great place to eat for the food and the amenities there. The views are spectacular and our server named Beth was absolutely one of the best that we have ever had. I would highly recommend the restaurant for it's food, hospitality and charm of the low country.

“Lunch on the Porch”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

The Crazy Crab has become a tradition: first lunch & last lunch on the Island. The porch is a great place for bird watching, having a spicy Bloody Mary to kick off vacation & an unhurried lunch. Servers are cheerful & efficient, and dogs are welcome on the porch. Food is not fancy, but is reliably good & fresh. Grouper sandwich is a favorite, as are the fried shrimp & oysters!

“Relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Good, but priced a bit high. Nice views. Good service. The cats roaming through the outdoor dining area was concerning and distracting to our children.
