We were in town again Friday night and had another great experience at Crabby Joe's! The T-Bone steak promo is awesome! Who is Grady? Great combo. Keep up the good work!

Gross food,poor service and poor owner who doesn't seem to care....No wonder it is slowly going out of business. I don't know what ever happened to respect for customers but this place certainly doesn't have it..
