Very average. Drinks in plastic containers and food not as good as many cheaper places. Very hard to believe all the rave reviews.

John, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and make us aware of your situation. I apologize for any disappointment during your visit, and want to make things right. We do use plastic cups, particularly in our Loading Dock as we prefer not to have glass outdoors. However, we do have traditional glassware and are more... More

This was our second trip to Crabby Bill's, and I must say the food did not disappoint. Our server, Sandra I think, was attentive and was knowledgeable of the different meal offerings (considering us mid-westerners don't often get the chance to eat fresh seafood! ). I like the traditional no-frills menu. Definitely a must for your next visit.

We ate upstairs outside on the patio and the view was spectacular. If you are looking for adequate food with a sunset view this is the place for you. The food itself is okay the fish was fresh but nothing to write home about. Its your typically seafood place in a tourist beach area.

James, thanks for the nice review, but I believe you have us confused with another location, as we do not have an upstairs patio. We are the Original Crabby Bill's located in Indian Rocks Beach, FL and we would love to have you in for some excellent seafood!

A group of swimming friends come here after a long swim and we are never disappointed! We love sitting outside and CC is typically our waitress. She is awesome and has a great sense of humor. Food, drink, music, and service are #1! A fun and relaxing place to be!

Had the Florida rib-eye which was cooked just the way I like it. Everyone was pleased with their meals, and the portions were large. Drink... More
