The staff helped with my daughter's 16th birthday on Sunday the 15th and were a ton of help. Great food and service. Been enjoying OV for over 20 years and they had it on tap! Score!!

Hadn't been to Crabby Joe's in a while so decided to visit on Mother's Day. Still lots of selection on the menu and everything ordered came hot and delicious. Can't get enough of that skillet garlic bread. Service was okay but could be more attentive.

We went to Crabby Joe's early on a Sunday afternoon to have a meal with extended family. We were absolutely shocked to walk in and see peanuts and peanut shells all over the floor. With two members of the family having severe peanut allergies we could not safely eat at this restaurant. We were stunned that in 2016 there are... More

We drove 30 minutes to get there and after our previous experiance at this restaurant, you think we should have learned to stay away.. But we all were hungry. We arrived about 9:30 pm Wednesday...

I went one night with my boyfriend. I had pasta with asparagus, the pasta wasn't cooked so they took it back and did not recook the pasta, they just threw the whole meal back on the burner. It was awful and extremely underwhelming. My boyfriend had Pad Thai and the serving was so small for the price, we have had... More

My husband and I went for a work lunch @ 11am. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our drink orders were taken and delivered, and then order our lunch. Our food was brought out promptly and was warm and delicious.. I got back to work early... We will be going back

We were greeted be the hostess. She had a sleeveless blouse on and had tatoos all over her arms. Disgusting. They should be covered. I don't want to look at that while I'm eating. The food was very good and the service was great.

On Tuesday's after 4pm wings are $6.99 and come with fries. They come in many different flavours and fill up most adults and kids. The soda can be expensive, so we just have water.
