Driving to the end of the road to get delicious steamed clams, fried seafood and crab quiche. Quaint and quiet bayside restaurant. Good food and large shareable portions with many options. Liked the bisque. The onion rings were greasy in one order but perfect in the next. Good hush puppies too. Dinged them a star for less stellar service (friendly... More

Great food . Great views and great service. We have ate there twice and both times it was equally as great...one of our favorite places to eat when we want a long drive ( we live about a hour away) buy it is always worth it.

This restaurant doesn't take reservations and depending on the night and the season, you may have to wait a while. This restaurant is worth it, Although I'm a local and really appreciate the quality of seafood they provide, I have to say, I've eaten in good restaurants the world over and this restaurant in probably never going to be evaluated...

We invited friends to dine with us for dinner at the Crazy Crab. I had no idea how much fun and how delicious the meals would be. It is in a great location and I liked it the minute we walked in. We were seated right away and when I looked at the menu it had my all time favorite... More

With grandparents, parents and young children this cute old fashioned restaurant was a perfect outing in Reedville. I had blackened Mahi-mahi that came with an outstanding pickled salsa, excellent and fried green tomatoes, awesome. Others had shrimp, cheeseburgers, crab cakes and all of us were very happy with our lunch. The staff was very friendly to our loud and active... More

Great food, nice service, lovely community! We sat out on the patio when it was raining. They have heaters, and a view of the boats and water.

My only complaint is they allow smoking at their outdoor seating area. Other then that, the staff, the food, the friendly family atmosphere was awesome! Their crab dip is amazing, which usually I say my family makes the best, I think this is the best recipe I have ever had, would love to know how they make it :). The... More

If you want to be nearly surrounded by water while dining on seafood, this is the place. On an unbearably hot July day, I had to forgo the outside table I would normally have chosen, for a window seat in AC. I still had a wide and lovely view of the river. The food complimented the setting. Oven baked "Skipjack"... More

We took a group of 14 here for a birthday dinner. Our service was very attentive, our food was all cooked just right, and they sang Happy Birthday for us and helped us serve the cake we brought with us. Since they have been open, this has been consistent with each visit. Great place to have dinner or lunch when... More

This small restaurant in Reedville has it all. It has atmosphere: water and it has boats. What more would you want? It has a choice of seating (inside or out) and the soups are to die for. Also on the menu are calamari, fried oysters, shrimp, clams, steak, barbeque, pasta, sandwiches and pb and j. I seem to always gravitate... More
