I ate at Crabby's today with my wife...I ordered a plate of Seafood over pasta with a Scampi sauce, Broiled Scallops, and a Seafood Gumbo. The Bartender was very nice. The Scampi was like a Garlic Flavored Oil Slick with over cooked seafood. The Scallops were over cooked and the Gumbo was ok. We returned the Pasta dish,and ate the Scallops and soup because we were dying of hunger. We were afraid to re-order because "Brian" the cook (Who also doubled as the plummer as he unclogged the ladies room toilet in the middle of his cooking duties)came out to check out who was sending back his food, We didnt want to get "a Brian Oyster" (hock tooey)if you know what I mean. If its Just Crabs you want Go for the All you can eat thing. But any Culinary type food is best left to the real chefs. Also my soup and drink and scallop prices were inflated by and additional dollar on each item...rather than argue we payed and left. $56.00 plus tip for 2 drinks and 2 soups and an over cooked plate of small (quarter sized) scallops....not including our tip. Dont even ask for salad the dont have it....a good seafood lunch with my wife became a dissappointment. I wish I had a better experience to report.
Rustic Spot Off the Beaten Path.
Crabby's has a great minimalistic feel. You can watch the game and soil your paper tablecloth as you make your way through the shore's freshest shellfish. Although they call it Crabby's, the Maryland Blues are a little messy and not worth all the work. In the end, it's best to stay with the King Crab Legs or the Garlic Crabs if you can stand a little oil. If you don't eat seafood, don't bother with the steak...chicken fingers and dirty fries are best. Finally for dessert, don't pass up the strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar, they are the most delectable berries I've ever eaten. Or if you're really feeling indulgent go all out and add a piece of their chocolate peanut butter pie to your order.
