Nice place out on the pier. We enjoyed reading all the signs on the pier walking out. Outside atmosphere even though you are inside.. Crabcakes and shrimp were excellent.

We went for lunch and was hoping for good seafood. The shrimp didn't disappoint and the hush puppies were yum. Brendan, our waiter, was super friendly and did a great job. We would definitely go back!

The shrimp is wonderful. Just get that. Portions are big. Drinks are EXPENSIVE. In fact, so is the food. It was good, but not good enough to spend the money there again.

Crabby Joe's is located out on a pier. If you are lucky, you'll have a seat by a window. We weren't lucky, but that was just by chance. A group walked in right in front of us and got the last table at a window....I splurged and had the crab legs. It was a generous portion. Another friend had the fish reuben and a third had a burger. We all enjoyed our meal. Richard B was our server. He was attentive and efficient. This is a nice place to have a late lunch. It started to fill up as it became closer to dinner time. We'll be back again.More

Good food, will go again! We arrived about 20 minutes before posted closing time and thought we would be turned away but were not. The staff was kind and courteous and we got our food quickly. It was yummy and plan on going back when...we're in the area again.More

Pretty cool atmosphere, the food was good and a decent portion. I would recommend getting there early in the evening. Seems to get pretty busy.

We discovered Crabby Joe’s when we last visited DBS four years ago so we were glad to see that it’s still thriving. We had steamed shrimp with a special spice blend (delicious!), corn on the cob, and Cole slaw (meh) and fried shrimp, hush puppies,...and rice pilaf because they were out of fries and sweet potato fries. We were seated on the deck in a semi-outdoor area that is right over the ocean so the view is unbeatable. The food and service are great. My only current concern is that seating is close, the bar and restaurant are full, and no one is masked. Probably a good idea to get your order to go and eat somewhere else.More

The location is great, the food was very underwhelming, our waitress acted like we were a burden. We had calamari and buffalo shrimp to start. Calamari was fine, shrimp was just soggy. My husband and I had Mahi, yellow rice, sweet potato fries, and hush...puppies. Everything was ok - edible but overcooked, kinda bland. My son had the flounder, it was also fine but just not great. Our waitress acted disinterested the entire time we were there. Our bill was $100 for 3 of us at lunchtime, not a big deal for the area but we were not impressed for the food and service. We wanted to give a new place a try but will stick with our go-to's for awhile.More

The view and location was amazing. Food was only so-so. I paid $18 for a chicken breast with hardly any flavor with some mango salsa on the side which was billed as “tropical chicken”.

Was very warm that day, and lots of people inside. We ended up sitting on high stools that were difficult for our older friends to get up into. The food wasnt anything out of the ordinary, and they certainly have a menu of fried everything....I tried the pasta but wasnt impressed...not hot...and nothing ohhh about it. Our group of 4 said it was ok but something we probably wont return to.More
