Our first visit to Crabby Bill's certainly won't be our last! We had a great server, Dalia, who went the extra mile for us even walking us around the building to where the live music bar is. The food was delicious -- my wife had the grouper and I had the clam strips. The sides were really delicious and we... More

This bar is good for anyone. Has live music daily and food is fairly good. Very lively place and gets very busy. They are open from 7am for breakfast.

I think CC is the best waitress there. Great breakfast at an affordable price. Lots of choices. Cool indoor / outdoor beach atmosphere.

We come here twice a year. It used to be my favorite place for fried oysters. Not anymore. The seasoning was sparse, they just didn't taste the same. They were also dripping in oil. They had been put on the plate right out of the fryer. Don't know if I'll be back next time we're down here.

Seems like a lot of locals, food was good, try the onion rings. The place was good but didn't feel like I needed to go back a second time. Service was very good.

I live here on IRB and have, at one time or another, frequented every establishment in town, for dinner and for drinks. Crabby's IRB is always the best, in large part due to Kaitlin, who is always friendly, funny, and fast. Sometimes my drink beats me to the order counter, just because she saw me walking up. She's definitely the... More
