We enjoyed a beautiful evening sitting outside for dinner. This is a fun, casual atmosphere. We shared fish bites, conch fritters and calamari as appetizers. Not heavily fried. We enjoyed the fish tacos. Service was attentive. Will return.

If you are tired of the restaurants on the strip, Crab Catchers is a local seafood restaurant right on the inlet. Great clams, crab cakes, shrimp, you name it.

Kinda sad because they have a great location but they blew it for everything else. We were there on a Monday at 2:00 which probably isn’t the best time to review but it was a bust. Parking is confusing because it’s not in front of...the place but there is a lot nearby. When you walk in, you’re not sure where to go but, once you go thru the door to outside, it’s a nice patio and bar area but it seems like it could be much nicer. We had the grouper special and snapper sandwiches. Both come with chips which looked like handmade but they were stale. The grouper was very good. Snapper was lost in its roll. Waste of time. Cross them off our list.More

We went for lunch and had no complaints. The wife had crab legs and I had a grilled chicken sandwich. Service was prompt and the food was good.

My wife myself and my step son decided let's try crab catchers for dinner. What a great choice we made!!!! We wanted outside seating on the deck so we did have about a 15 to 20 minute wait which was not bad. They have a...bar Outback where you can get a couple drinks and walk a little pier that they have or the fishing boats come in... We started out with an appetizer of conch fritters and crab bites. The crab bites were good but they can't fritters we're little overcooked and I've had better. Our waitress was very friendly and outgoing our food came out prompt and was not disappointed. I highly recommend making this a stop if you're up in the Little River areaMore

We were looking for waterfront dining and this was the spot. The restaurant was around 20 minutes or so north of our resort but we'll worth the drive. The restaurant sits along the intercoastal waterway with it's own parking lot. There are a few inside...tables but the majority is outside. We had no wait at all. Such a fun atmosphere with the sea gulls all around, the boats docked and on water, jet skis up and down. The menu has so many options from gator and blue crab bites, crab legs, and steamers.More

Ate out along the waterside bar. It was threatening heavy downpour but we felt secure under their large overhang. The server was awesome and was working so hard. Seriously the best crab cakes and fried oysters we have ever had! Well worth the soaking we...got! No one left the area when it started pouring. Even when horizontal rains came in under the overhang our server kept serving and we kept eating and visiting. Nothing we had the rest of the week, while delicious, compared to those oysters and crab cakes!More

Waited on by Chelsea B, third day on job, awesome waitress. Everything we asked for, we got. Prompt service, good food, grilled shrimp was great. Hard to find, parking a long way. No wait, went early, 4:30 or so. Still busy, casino ship beside eatery.

We went as a family of 8 for our last night of vacation. We got there around 445 to beat the Friday night dinner rush; we were seated within 10 minutes. Hailey was our waitress, very friendly and orders were correct. We ordered a few...appetizers: gator bites, crab bites, and conch fritters. The gator and crab bites were very good; the conch fritters were more just like balls of stuffing. I got the snow crab legs; they were just ok, they were a bit overcooked and came out of the shell stringy instead of in a lump like usual. Also the seasoning was a bit messy, next time I would order it without the seasoning. The mac and cheese is cheesy and good. My son got the kids fish and it was overcooked and dry. The atmosphere was nice, it was cool to sit out on the water and watch the boats come and go.More

Had the opportunity to visit with my family during vacation. From the onset service was not stellar. Everyone but my wife got their drinks, so I had to get the bartender to get her beer. Then my meal, despite being steamed clams, was not ready...when everyone else’s was done. Told it would be two minutes, but they still had not come even after the rest of the party had finished their lunch. Would not recommend.More

They probably do but they cook in a kitchen where they prepare shellfish/seafood so if you have an allergy to these, you might want to go somewhere else.

I wouldn’t book this place. It has other food but this is first and foremost a seafood restaurant.
