Ordered the pickle chips as an appetizer. The batter stayed on which is sometimes a huge problem. Also had the clam strips and fries. They were good but disappointed in the amount of clam strips. Service was good. Staff was friendly. They practiced safety protocols...for social distancing.More

Small corner restaurant with incredible clam chowder. The pan fried oysters were also incredible; very succulent and flavorful.

Residents of nearby HillCrest Inn receive a discount for dine in or take out. We ordered (the oyster basket - full is 12 and half is 6 oysters) oysters, kid Mac 'N Cheese (which was delicious) a lemonade (fresh squeezed) and fish tacos; My wife...said the tacos were good but needed more spice. All in all a very pleasant dining experience. Happy with the food/serviceMore

I cannot tolerate the preservant on salad that comes in bags. The Crabby Oyster makes their own, and it is a generous salad. AND they hand-dip their own fish for frying. NUM!

We came to Crabby's as the second spot on a taste test. FAR exceeded the first stop (Tom's) and Beverly provided great service. We got freshly dipped and fried fish & chips with coleslaw. The Fish and Chips were excellent. Recommended this over the 'other'...place we taste tested.More

My sister and I didn't know where to eat, but we wanted a good seafood meal. So we stopped in at the Crabby Oyster. W♡W, What a meal we had. We ordered several options bc we were undecided. The halibut fish & chips came with...cole slaw. We give the fish & chips ☆☆☆☆☆ We also ordered fried oysters, & onion rings. ☆☆☆☆☆ But, wait there's more... :) We also wanted to try their popular clam chowder. So we ordered 2 cups. ☆☆☆☆☆ Absolutely NO REGRETS!!! Lol, then we ordered their fresh clams 'steam pot. YUMMY!!! And lastly we ordered but didn't eat or taste was their crab louie salad. It looked good& it was loaded with fresh crab meat ☆☆☆☆☆ The real stuff. Please don't judge us, we didn't eat everything. We just wanted to try everything. I hope you do too. You won't regret it.More
