We had great seafood, pulled pork, and service. Good prices, but they kept the AC on too high so bring a sweater and enjoy!
Returned on another area visit. Again a great lunch of local seafood. Once again had "mules delight" which was prepared perfectly. Owner and staff are friendly and go out of there way please. Will return!!
This place was amazing. We had a party of 11, with four being kids. Only half the group were seafood lovers, so this restaurant had something for everyone. The staff was GREAT! One of the waiters even placed a live crab on the table for our kids. If we are ever in the area again, I would defintely go.

We have been coming to the OBX for 22 years now and this is our first time to eat at Fat Crabs. My husband ordered ribs and said they were fair - not much fat but they were dry like they'd been siting out for a while. I ordered fried clams and seafood gumbo. The clams were good but there... More
Scallops and sweet potato fries were good as other reviewers have said. Kids meals were reasonably priced. Great value overall. We had really fast and friendly service (we came after the dinner rush).
