Good food and service. Not crowded due to storms the day we visited and fewer boats in the marina due to continuing hurricane rebuilding.

The food was really good or so we thought. 2 of our group ended up sick. My husband ordered me a drink which he ended up having to tell her how to make. The waitress was loud and squeaky. Actually gave me chills when she talked. Like Fran from the Nanny. Oh there's more... got our food wrong. When it... More

Stopped for a mid-afternoon snack of oysters on the half shell and they were delicious. Thanks to Debra for being such a great server.

We went to Crazy Crab Sunday evening for our last meal on HHI. I wish we would have went elsewhere. We asked to be seated outside on the patio. The view was great although it was windy and going to storm. We waited almost 15 minutes for our waitress to even acknowledge us being there. They were not busy so... More

It's easy to see why the Crazy Crab is a favorite in Hilton Head. It has an extensive menu, ample parking, excellent service, and a lively atmosphere, which was enhanced because the Kentucky Derby was running while we were there. There is seating indoors and out on the deck which overlooks one of the creeks and harbors on Hilton Head.... More

Our table had fried fish and crab legs. Fish was a large portion but not quite done enough for me. Crab legs (both the adult and kids portions) was more than one person could eat. They bring hushpuppies and rolls to the table. Sweet tea was good.

We were recommended here for seafood on our vacation to Hilton Head - my wife ordered the fried scallop dinner & I ordered the fried clams (we usually do this and then split 50/50 so we both have clams & scallops). We come from New England and are used to good seafood, but this was the best we have ever... More

My daughter, future daughter-in-law, granddaughter and myself recently visited our favorite island. We are all seafood fans. We decided on Crazy Crab for dinner, due to previous visits. The crab legs were delicious and a more than average size serving. The fried platter was also enjoyed. Our waiter, Scott was excellent. He was prompt, friendly, and on point meeting our... More

The Crazy Crab provides a spectacular waterfront dining experience overlooking beautiful Jarvis Creek. Our menu is derived from Low Country recipes, and each entree is individually prepared to order. Our Alaskan Snow Crab Legs are the best on the island - winning local awards for multiple years. We provide entertainment for the whole family with an onsite playground, the largest salt water fish tank on Hilton Head, live music and crab races during the summer, and a perfect view of breathtaking Low Country sunsets. We have both indoor and outdoor seating on our expansive deck and are pet friendly. The Crazy Crab at Jarvis Creek is perfect for your rehearsal dinner or private party. During non-peak times of the year, a part of the restaurant can be curtained-off for your private event, seating up to 80 individuals. The covered outside deck area can seat almost 100 guests with an outdoor bar area and options for private oyster roasts or Low Country boils. Come visit us and see why we have been a local favorite for over 30 years!
