Service is always great and we love to sit out on the deck during the summer time! Daily specials are AMAZING and affordable for the whole family to go out.

Quirky atmosphere, friendly staff. Went for lunch, service was good. Food was OK. Don't think I would recommend driving a long ways to get there, but if you're in the vicinity it's worth the stop.

Took my Dad out to lunch today. First time at Crabby Dick's. They had their shrimp special. Dad( who is 99) loves shrimp. The soup was very disappointing. We had the steamed, coconut and fried shrimp all you can eat plate. The shrimp were tasteless. We would never ask for more since what we had was so bad. Would never... More

First off let me say that our server DANYEL was on point all during our stay. We had a party of 19 adults and 4 children and we were celebrating a birthday. We all had her take our orders and drinks and even apps. and when things starting being ready she was back with not just 2 or 3 orders... More

First... I'd lived in DE from 1971 thru 2004. Been in Wisconsin since. Visiting east coast on the occasion of my 50 year class reunion (in PA). Visited a buddy I knew from DuPont... he'd lived in an OLD house about a half mile up Clinton St (bird house is replica of real house) for several months. The weird thing...... More

On the way in the hostess showed us the bathroom...weird. I'm thinking she did that because we were never going to see a waiter to ask where it was. We were seated in rolling chairs at a table for two. It was very difficult to get into our seats due to the extreme closeness of the other tables. I'm short... More

We went to the main entrance to try to get an inside table since the nights have been getting cool lately. We waited at the hostess stand with a gentleman who was holding a bag of take... More
