Went there March 16 2016. This is now a Mexican Restaurant. Waitress was a new hire so she didn't know where the Cripple Crab went. Did not eat there so can't rate the new restaurant.

This restaurant seems to be closed down. We were traveling back from a trip to Florida and have stayed in Hardeeville since it is about half way home. Was really looking forward to having supper. We had eaten here before and it was very good.

This place looked promising from the outside. What really encouraged me to go in (besides there being very few dining spots to choose from in the area) were the two nicely dressed older folks who walked out, presumably after finishing their meal. I assumed that they had years to practice good taste and I wanted to share the benefits of... More

My husband and I went for a "local"/ "mom and pop" kinda feel for the evening and thought we would try the restaurant advertised as a steak and seafood place. Which is true I guess, they do offer the NY Strip. That's all.. I do want to start with the positives about our meal...Their sweet tea was good. ok, so... More

When Passing through Hardeeville, S.C., I came across the Cripple Crab. Although I had just missed their daily lunch buffet, I ordered their Crab Cakes which were very Good! The Server suggested the Brunswick Stew. A Great Suggestion! Warm, Spicy and Refreshing. Service was Excellent. Atmosphere is nothing fancy. Come here to eat! Next time I'm in the area, I'll...

$17 for 8 fried shrimp and 2 small sides. Crab bites were good, again pricy. Shrimp po-boy had the fried shrimp with the tails left on. Won't be back until they get their act together. Were out of ribs, steaks and hush puppies the night we were there.

Ate here or attempted to eat here this evening. My brother and his wife have eaten here in the past and were raving about the place. We were seated promptly and waited on right away. The waitress was somewhat knowledgeable about items on the menu. Being staunch New Englanders, we asked about the Clam Chowder and were told it had... More

The menu is limited to begin with, but they were out of ribs- their main meat! Granted we were there at 8:30 and they close at 9, but hard to believe they ran out! Mac and cheese was dry and chicken breast was very small but tasty.
