Crabby carries it's name well. The sign with the old irritated man really fits well because it prepares you for what's to come inside. And what you get is a really crabby waitress that could not care less about customer satisfaction and is acting like...More

Atmosphere was great..clean and friendly. Food was disappointing. Had a big.joe ...burgers were burnt and onion rings did not have a good breading. They discounted 2 bucks off the meal but i wouldnt order their signature again.

Went here after a hockey game on a Saturday night. All appetizers are half price and their jugs of beer were $13! Great prices. Good atmosphere and friendly servers.

My second time at this location. Great food and great selection. Server was friendly and even gave me a discount on our food as my gluten free bun was a tad frozen still in the middle. Wasn't horrible I just ate around it.

I love the steak here. I always order it blue. This place never disappoints. Portions are fair and prices are reasonable. Wings are great too. An overall go-to spot.

The menu has changed and the prices have skyrocketed with small portions and way overpriced for quality. For example: Their bacon burger is 14$ and all you get is mediocre fries and the burger, add 3$ for a soft drink, add tax and you've just...More

A little confused. The pictures posted are not of the Crabby Joes in Brantford. And one of the comments states that they stayed at the Hampton Inn and walked across the parking lot to the restuarant. It's not the Hampton Inn, it's Days Inn. Just thought I'd let you know.
