We decided to go back to Crabby Joes for wing night, it's my wifes & my sisters friend favorites. Were not disappointed, excellent food & a very reasonablt price. It can be a little noisy, but most Grills are.

We ate at Crabby Joes tonight with our friends. We ordered two pasta dishes. They were both terrible. The service was good and our kids had fun but the pasta was just not even edible. My friend's pasta was a chicken parmesan. It tasted like...More

Nothing to write home about when dining at Crabby Joe's Tap & Grill. The food is just ok but nothing memorable.

The staff helped with my daughter's 16th birthday on Sunday the 15th and were a ton of help. Great food and service. Been enjoying OV for over 20 years and they had it on tap! Score!!

Hadn't been to Crabby Joe's in a while so decided to visit on Mother's Day. Still lots of selection on the menu and everything ordered came hot and delicious. Can't get enough of that skillet garlic bread. Service was okay but could be more attentive.

I was wondering because Igo there once a month or less . Some one told me the hostesses don't get tipped out? I've seen one particular girl very courteous pleasant runs around to make sure customers are pleased. I'm not sure but could be wrong Is this the only restaurant where hostesses aren't tipped out? I've seen them work their butt off on busy nights. She cleans sets tables & most of all smiles 100% . I must get her name as this girl is so very ambitious & always looks professional.

You should get her name, because she must be new and once she experiences the terrible staff will most likely look for another position elsewhere. This place is a disgrace.
