Crabby carries it's name well. The sign with the old irritated man really fits well because it prepares you for what's to come inside. And what you get is a really crabby waitress that could not care less about customer satisfaction and is acting like emotionless robot. I was there around 5PM, mid week. Empty, 4-5 tables were occupied, with... More

This was our first time to this particular restaurant, as we were squeezed for time we had asked for a rush service. Serenity was extremely helpful and took our order promptly and assured us that the meal will be prepared shortly. Soon after meal was prepared and served, although the restaurant was busy and was getting a lot of patrons... More

Atmosphere was great..clean and friendly. Food was disappointing. Had a big.joe ...burgers were burnt and onion rings did not have a good breading. They discounted 2 bucks off the meal but i wouldnt order their signature again.

Went here after a hockey game on a Saturday night. All appetizers are half price and their jugs of beer were $13! Great prices. Good atmosphere and friendly servers.

Staff on the night I went were slow, not helpful and seemed pre-occupied. There were only 3 other tables near us. I was brought the wrong meal. I did not re-order as it took a bit of time to get the meal in the first place. Cool thing is I have a nut allergy. Guess what, the meal I had... More

My second time at this location. Great food and great selection. Server was friendly and even gave me a discount on our food as my gluten free bun was a tad frozen still in the middle. Wasn't horrible I just ate around it.

I love the steak here. I always order it blue. This place never disappoints. Portions are fair and prices are reasonable. Wings are great too. An overall go-to spot.

The menu has changed and the prices have skyrocketed with small portions and way overpriced for quality. For example: Their bacon burger is 14$ and all you get is mediocre fries and the burger, add 3$ for a soft drink, add tax and you've just spent 20$. I tried to get a small side Caesar and only half the fries... More
