This restaurant doesn't take reservations and depending on the night and the season, you may have to wait a while. This restaurant is worth it, Although I'm a local and really appreciate the quality of seafood they provide, I have to say, I've eaten in...More

Great food, nice service, lovely community! We sat out on the patio when it was raining. They have heaters, and a view of the boats and water.

I wore a review for The Crazy Crab. I loved everything but accidentally put my drink as a rum punch but it was a RUM RUNNER and one of the best I've ever tasted. Can I edit it?

I'm interested in accessing the restaurant by water. Is there boat docking while you dine?
