I have eaten at Crabby Oddwaters at least half a dozen times. It has always been a good experience. The seafood is fresh and well prepared. Dinner starts with a basket of hushpuppies. They are addictive, but pace yourself because the dinner portions are large!...More

Stop telling people over the phone that there is no wait and then tell them it's 30 minutes. We called from the parking lot so it was only 2 minutes. We will never go there again!
