I'm a local who first ate at Crabby Bill's over 30 years ago, when there were 3 tables. Now there's an inside dining room plus an outside one with live music. It's one of those places you revisit once or twice a year. It's sort of just there. Tonight, my husband and I attended a high school football game for... More

I had crab cakes. My companion had one of the large everything buckets (shrimp, mussels, crab legs, potato, clams, etc.). Both were delectable. Thoroughly enjoyed!

We stayed less than a mile down the road and ended up eating here 4 times during our week-long vacation! The oysters are great and we took advantage of the peel and eat special on Wednesdays. We had breakfast one morning and loved all of our meals. Shauna, Stacy, and the rest of the staff were awesome!
