Host was a jerk. He thought he was funny but very few enjoyed his humor. Drug out the crab races for two hours Because of his routine, you did not find out the admirable thing until the end -- that half the money went to charity for veterans. I would have put in more money in the beginning if I... More

Tim and his one liners are always entertaining. Starting from when you want to purchase your crab through the end. He can sometimes get a little crass, but overall the adult show is highly entertaining. At least do this once while visiting Sanibel/Captiva. Skip eating at the Crow's Nest~drinks and snacks would be fine.

This is silly, great fun! One of the reasons we made sure our stay included a Thursday. Something that should take 5 minutes ends up taking almost 2 hours! Plus half the pot goes to United Way.

We stopped here on a whim after eating dinner at Doc Fords and it was the highlight of our evening. You will laugh till your sides hurt and will talk about this for days...Everyone is fair game to the race announcer so don't be shocked when you get called out in the crowd and picked on. Its hilarious. The race... More

If your looking to for a fun night out with lots of laughs and entertainment then go to the crab race. Tim is awesome and funny. It's also awesome that Tim donates 1/2 of the pot to charity. Oooorahh. This is a must try!!

Top night out. Kids racing at 6pm on Mondays and Thursdays. Arrive early to get a table for dinner then watch it he crab racing. They do an adult version at 9pm. The guy who runs it is bonkers so makes it great fun, so let's not as you can appreciate his NY humour!!! Whole family had a great time.
