We have come to Crabby Ricks for the last 2 years. Although good in the past, this year was VERY disappointing. As others have said the fish was very over fried on a burned roll. We had to send the first attempt of a fried cod sandwich back because it was just over fried breading on a roll. We really... More

Impulse stop and great decision! Fried clams are huge and juicy; blackened fish sandwich huge and juicy...see a theme here? Rick is fun to talk to and the music was perfect. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

We stopped here for a conch type of fritter. It tasted like pancake batter and instead of being a golden color, it was dark and horrible. I really don't see the attraction of coming to this place except it is very cute and inviting as you ride by. The owner is very friendly and recommended this fritter which he said... More

I was very excited to see this shack open up in our area. We are a shore town but there are actually very few seafood restaurants here. This is one of a kind. It is really just a stand where you can get take out seafood or sit at their outdoor picnic tables and eat there. It has a nice... More

We had a wonderful and inexpensive meal at this true beach shack. The atmosphere is great with caribbean music playing. This place gets better every year. The spicy crab soup and blackened fish sandwich were fantastic. We were able to bring our own wine and were given wine glasses and a wine cooler w/ ice. We lingered with friends and... More

I believe this place it under new ownership, the lobster roll was amazing... so full of real lobster and parts of lobster claws that it was two meals for me. I had the soup due to other recommendations and it was also awesome. The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. The place appeared to be immaculate. I will definitely be... More

Was there yesterday for the first time. Loved it! Going back again today to pick up lunch for my friends and family. The Spicy Crab soup is superb, and the Crab Burger my wife had was made fresh in front of us, and she referenced it as the best crab sandwich she has ever had.
