We had a short wait at lunchtime. Oysters and grouper were both good! Crab cakes not so good. We will try again.

Summer beach vacations can be a bit crazy. Finding a soothing respite from the sun with a choice to dine inside or out on a wide veranda overlooking a peaceful salt marsh was a winner for us. Fried scallops were buttery delicious. Shrimp and grits?...More

She crab soup wasn't as hot as I'd like, but the flavor was pretty good. Shrimp and grits were just ok and needed quite a bit of salt, which I rarely feel the need to use. Low country boil was the same-no flavor. Fish and...More

Another late night dinner spot, rolled in at 9 and was treated great! Hush puppies were awesome, shrimp was awesome, crab legs were awesome, look forward to coming again! Almost left off the salted caramel cheesecake and chocolate peanut butter pie were phenomenal!

Loud, salty, smelly, overpriced, overrated food. If this is what you are looking for, crazy crab is just the place.

This place gets super crowed in the high season and for good reason. The food and staff are great. We came with a party of 15 and sat in sections of the bar area -- had a great time and one of my favorite places...More

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!
