We really didn't care for our meals. The crab boil was just random boiled things in a bowl with NO seasoning, very bland. The undercooked Crab cakes had no flavor, they were dark and fishy. The hush puppies were flavorless greasy balls. The spinach salad...with fresh and delicious strawberries was very good. Why is this place packed? We at least expected a beautiful sunset view, but because of all the shrubbery by the marsh, you really don't get to see the sunset except peeking through some trees.More

We arrived at about 5:30 and were seated quickly, had a great meal (all 3 of us) , and were well attended to. Our server Scott came by numerous times to check on us and made sure everything was to our liking. Thanks again Scott!

The view of the harbor,lighthouse, and sunset made for a lovely setting, however the food was a disappointment. The Shrimp boil was flavorless and appeared to have been all prepared separately and then placed on a plate. The first plate had ice cold potatoes. Service...was mediocre and the rolls we saw being served never arrived. The grouper had a fishy taste that ruined the experience. The waitstaff was minimal for the number of tables which makes quality service a challenge. The location was great for those who stay within walking distance.More

Three of us went in different dining directions: I had the broiled scallops (which were offered fried but waitress consented to my request. My husband and our guest started with she crab soup, which was very good, then transitioned to fried flounder which was overly...breaded and tasteless. For the price, there are other many restaurants in the area.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Crazy Crab! They brought hush puppies out, and they were delicious! We enjoyed a Key Lime Pie first, yes dessert always first, and it was great. Our appetizer was the bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp and so yummy. My...husband and I shared the Captains Platter, pictured, and loved it! Our daughter enjoyed good ole Mac and cheese. I do recommend this restaurant.More

We returned to Crazy Crab on our last night in HH. It was great. Although busy, our table was ready when we arrived. We had an excellent server who kept us in drinks and food throughout. Both had steamed buckets. The crab legs and shrimp...were excellent.....perfectly seasoned and cooked. We finished with peanut butter pie and left full. We highly recommend.More

Yes. There is a large lot but you may have to drive around a bit to find a slot. The place was crazy busy when we were there. Definitely go with a reservation.
