We visited again, this time with our older children and it was a hit! Tuna, oysters, salad, clam strips, Crabby pork chop, and crabby fries all excellent!

good food and service in this quiet little place and it has a beautiful view of the water. In a small town of Greenbackville.

Served mostly fried food. Not very clean inside but has a beautiful view of the bay. The table is very sticky so your elbow will stuck to the table if you leave it there too long.

Ok, we had heard about this from a local. We called Friday and Miss Carol told us no go so we called again on Saturday. Then we were told we could take our chances and that's just what we did. We got a table inside and our server was great. We had read that service could be hit or miss but our lady was great. The environment is as eclectic as described by others but in a home town dive sort of way so that just made it better. The food was over the top great. My husband got blackened fish and I shrimp. We shared the crabby fries (fries with crusty's crab dip and cheese on top). The food was perfectly prepared and there was plenty. The cocktail sauce was made from fresh horseradish perfectly balanced with tomato. The coke slaw not to much wet and again perfectly seasoned. The shrimp were again perfectly prepared. My husband raved about his fish.

We ended with a piece of Miss Carol's warm chocolate and yellow layered cake with coconut icing (like you might get with German chocolate cake but soooo much better. Turns out miss Carol has been making their deserts forever and this was something new she just tried.

It's not fancy, and you may have to wait for a table if you don't make a reservation, but this is a true hidden gem that is becoming well known. Suggest you not miss this if you are in the area.

Stopped by yesterday after a round of golf at the nearby course with 3 of my golf buddies. Have heard about the place for a while but this was my first visit. Although it's a true "seafood shack" type of place, no high end décor, just the basics but the location is right on the water with great views. Prices are more than reasonable and you get a lot for your money. My three friends went for the Manly Burger and I ordered the Crabby Burger. Their burgers were just plain HUGE! Actually each one had two patties that, when combined, were at least 3 inches thick! My burger was only one patty but was topped with a large amount of crab dip and cheese. Quite enough for me that's for sure. Sides were some great fries and a dish of really nice potato salad. As far as the price? All four of us ate these gigantic burgers, sides and drinks and the total came to just a few cents over $51. Interior is definitely "rustic" but no complaints. The A/C had a hard time cooling the place but we are in the middle of a nasty heat wave and it was doing its best and we weren't uncomfortable. Waitress was attentive and polite so no complaints there either. If you're looking for a quirky little place with great food, take the time to find The Crusty Crab!
