Ronnie is such a great personality to have as your server! Your drinks are never empty, and the hospitality cannot be beat! She has a warm, friendly demeanor, and she makes you feel right at home! Wonderful food, wonderful company!

If you can get a table without having to wait too long this is a fab place to eat. It's very popular but they do their best to get you seated as soon as possible. Lovely friendly staff and we enjoyed the live music there most evenings.

just returned from Indian Rocks Beach and one of the highlights of the trip was a stop at Crabby Bill's Restaurant. Everything on the menu looked great, but we chose the blackened mahi mani sandwich. It was wonderful, the flavor of the fresh fish not overpowered by seasoning. As great as the meal was, our server, Andrew, was the star.... More

Just a few friends riding our bikes down from Island Estates in Clearwater. We stopped for breakfast and I had the most fabulous "Uncle Carl's Real Crab Omelet". Our waitress "CC" was very accommodating and friendly. I will be back to this Original Florida style Crab House.

Great breakfast spot. Crab cakes Benedict was excellent. The southwest omelet also looked amazing. Reasonably priced, divey looking bar restaurant. Worth the stop.

Thank Justin W
