This is a hidden gem. They have great crabs, and great service. The service is so good you almost get tired of them asking are you ok or if you need anything, ha! All you can eat crabs for $34 is a steal, w/ unlimited hush puppies and fries. I will certainly return.

We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon for an early dinner. This is a casual place with booths and a nautical theme. The rock fish platter was very good. However, early evening on a Sunday they were out of coleslaw and sweet tea. The food was very good, the service was quick and the staff was friendly. We would definitely... More

Grinder's seafood has very good crabs. My family and I visited the aerea and found Grinder's for lunch, it wasn't very crouded. The blue crabs and boiled shrimp were great. The place is very friendly and clean, There wern't any cars in parking lot but don't let that fool you. They do a lot of take out.

There are only a couple places I go for crabs, and Grinders is one of them! I have eaten in as well as take out. Both experiences have been great! Lovely, homey feel and the food is delicious! Nothing scenic, but there are other places for that if that is what you are looking for.

After a day of fossil hunting in the local area we (5 of us) decided to go for crabs at Grinder's. This was my 1st time visiting this restaurant. We all thought the service was very good - waitress was attentive and saw that our drinks were always full. Crabs were well seasoned, hot and tasty! I had the potato... More
