If you are visiting the area, you must try I got your crabs. A huge selection of seafood. Also great kids menu. The tacos are excellent!

Thank you so much for taking time to leave a review for us! I especially love that you highlighted our children's menu. It's something that's often overlooked but is so special to us. Being a family restaurant, we wanted to make sure that kids have healthy choices. Did you know that your choice of side, including several veggie options, is... More

Excellent crabs! When we first called to order the crabs, we were surprised to hear that they were no longer able to take any orders for steamed crabs that day and offered to take our order for the next day. We're really glad we did! We were offered two sizes, #1's and jumbos. We ordered #1's and were very pleased!... More

We're so happy to hear that you were able to get the blue crabs you were after! Unfortunately, we do sometimes run out of blue crabs but that's just the nature of the business. On your next trip to town, give us a call the day before and we're happy to reserve your crabs ahead of time. Hope this helps... More

Pretty awesome place to eat...best clam strips I've ever had and the crab was very tasty! The only downside of this was the price. But still worth it!!

Thank you for the review! While fresh, local seafood doesn't make for a cheap food, we definitely do our best to keep our prices lower than our competitors. We'll keep the crabs and clam strips waiting. See you again soon! More

A small place set up for crab and oyster eaters only. All others should stay out! Great crab legs and oysters. $8 for 12 raw, $10 for fried. I had the oysters fried. Wonderful. Three types of crab legs. All were very good. A must stop for every OBX visit.

The food here was fabulous. The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. One word of warning- it is an extremely small restaurant with only 2 booths, 1 table and bar seating for about 15.

On the advice of Trip Advisor, we went to I Got your crabs for dinner, and they nailed it! The crabs were perfectly cooked which my wife enthusiastically enjoyed.

Thank you for the kind review! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your crabs. As you know, we offer two sizes: medium (which we recommend to anyone who doesn't mind picking) and large (which we recommend to those who prefer filling up more quickly). While the latter comes at a premium, I am certain you'll enjoy them on your... More

Friendly staff. Taught us how to eat steamed oysters- yum! I've had hush puppies many times before, but never with a browned butter/brown sugar dipping sauce!!! Excellent! We got steamed scallops- perfect. Catfish sandwich- ehh.
