My wife thought we were in for bar food. Wrong. Our Seafood was perfect. Will definitely eat here again. Wonderful, staff, funny and attentive. Will make it a point to stop in again. Thank you for letting your hospitalized children wait till we got to eat.

All I can say is wow... After a long day of crabbing on the coast guard dock in Winchester Bay, my wife wanted to try the Crabby Cafe for dinner. We had already stopped in a few weeks prior to buy some excellent tuna (which the owner catches and cans himself) so we were eager to see if that quality... More

I have eaten here twice on trips to the Pacific Northwest. This small place is one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at. Ask them what fish is the freshest and how they recommend preparing it. I would go with their recommendation without any hesitation. Don't miss this dining experience if you find yourself in Winchester Bay,... More

While visiting the coast I went to this restaurant and and crab. It was wonderful. It was so good, I went back the next night and had fried oysters. For dessert I had marionberry cobbler with ice cream. It doesn't get any better than that.

Having heard about the Umpqua Triangle oysters, we had to try them. They have them here at the Crabby Cafe. We ordered the appetizer of 6 oysters to share. The oystets were so big, I ate them in three bites each, instead of one. Sat at the counter because all the tables were full. Nice waitress. Good chowder, too, full... More

Thanks for this great review. We order the small oysters at the triangle, but they are still pretty big as you noticed! More

The fish and chips had yukky breading and my hub didn't care for them. My crabcakes were just ok. No nice white chunks of crab like my favorite preparations have. The wait staff couldn't tell me if the wines were from Oregon so I stuck with a beer.

I wanted fresh crab and that's what we got. Service was excellent. This is a tiny family run cafe with good food. I would stop here again.

We had lunch here while visiting the area on a fishing trip. The service and atmosphere were OK--what you would expect for a bayfront seafood place. I ordered the clam chowder which tasted like unseasoned potato soup, The fish and chips were served with limp greasy fries and the fish also lacking in flavor. Would not stop here again.

We were looking for something off the beaten path and on the water to eat. The food was reasonable, the price is a little high. I would say it was a decent place to grab a bite to eat. It seems like there may have been some locals frequenting the establishment.

I try to come here every time I'm over this way. The food quality is always great and the place, to me, is a cool little hole in the wall.
