Everything from shrimp, lobster, clams, mussels, oysters, octopus, soft shell crab, frog legs, real Florida gator tail, and of course fresh caught Gulf grouper; we have something for everyone. Inside and outside dining available, full liquor bars, live music nightly, and much more. Hospitality is our blood and we are excited to have you and your family at our table soon.

    We were a party of 8, on a Friday night. Our service was outstanding. Our food was very good. They were out of the scallops that I chose. But the fried shrimp substitute was excellent. The food arrived all together and without a long wait. Every one of us felt it was a good experience.

    The food is really good and the wait staff friendly. We got there 1/2 hr before the end of happy hour and the waitress kept the drinks coming. The gator bites and smoked fish spread were absolutely fabulous. The only issue we had was the reservation through Open Table is only for indoor seating and we would rather of had outdoor with live music. But indoor was good especially with a 4 month old!

    The food tasted like it came out of a grocery store freezer. Our server was brusque, not friendly. She got our order wrong, giving us coleslaw instead of fries, and brought the fries when the sandwich was done. She charged us for the other couples meal and vice versa. We will not return.

    Very dissapointed. I have been coming here since 1985. We were seated behind bar and the patrons were having a great time but ruining it for those trying to dine. I should have asked to be moved. Food was ok but not the usual great. Took a longer than normal time and I almost wonder if it sat under lamp, my fish was soggy. I will be better at letting folks know if this happens again. Hope this is not going to be the new normal. Ate here 8 times last year.

    We were excited to reserve a table at Crabby Bill’s at IRB for our final meal after an extended stay in the Gulf Beaches area. Amber, our server was efficient, competent and friendly. The manager was visible and engaging with customers. Our food was delicious. We had stone crab and the seafood platter. Typically fried food can feel heavy. That is not the case with the seafood platter. It is very light and almost Calabash tasting. Portions are bang on and everything was cooked to perfection. We chose fries and slaw as our sides because the slaw is amazing. We also had the peanut butter pie for dessert and a frozen Piña Colada. This visit is consistent with past experiences. There is a reason why Crabby Bill’s IRB location has thousands of positive reviews. If you’re in the area, you’d be remiss not to try it. There is more than seafood for those who enjoy other menu offerings.

    Food was a total disappointment. In 20+ years of eating steamed snow crab legs I’ve never experienced water pouring out when you pick them up or the shells flexible when breaking them. Dozen raw oysters were pitiful, they were so small/flat/thin that they didn’t cover 1/2 of a saltine cracker. Almost missed one because the oyster looked just like what’s left connecting on the shell. Kid’s favorite food is Mac & cheese and kids wouldn’t touch what was served to them. Won’t be back to what had been a multi generation Family favorite after two disappointing experiences.

    We enjoyed the ambiance, service and food. Initially thought the menu was more bar-food like, but they had other great options as well. Portions are very large. Chris took excellent care of us and his recommendations were great. Try the onion rings, crab bake appetizer (can’t remember exact name) and the salmon. We will definitely come back when in the area again. Make sure you request outdoor seating if that is what you want….

    Went for AYCE crab ($65)…the reorders were not timely or meaningful (one cluster per reorder)…also it felt as though the crab was sitting in water (water logged) before serving…crab came out shaved vs as chunks. Crab was over done and very watery…made cracking annoying and frustrating. This crab lover would not go back.
