We had received multiple recommendations to eat at the Crazy Crab. They were not wrong. All of the meals ere fantastic. The service was fast and polite. We can't wait to eat there again next time in HH.

This was our first time visiting the Crazy Crab here in Hilton Head. Immediately we loved the views and the environment of the place. We sat outside on the deck right by the water. I believe our servers name was Katelyn, she was incredible, so...friendly and provided amazing service. The food was amazing too and provided great value for money. Very happy we chose to eat here and we will definitely be back!More

We went early on a Saturday evening so as not to have to wait for a table. The three teenage hostesses were very grim and unsmiling (no welcome greeting.) I watched them walking guests to the tables and commented they must have all three just...broken up with their boyfriends and were in bad moods. Fortunately our waiter was fantastic, very attentive and friendly. The Oysters Rockefeller was very good. My shrimp was okay but tasted like it came from a freezer box. Drinks and prices were good.More

We have been to HHI at least 10 times and have always had a dinner here. We get reservations. They have outdoor dining and I don't know if you can request this, but we have mostly sat outside. It's a beautiful view of Broad Creek....There was music, but not overwhelming. I had salmon and enjoyed it. My husband and daughter also said their meals were good. The Key LIme Pie was outstanding. The best we had on HHI.More

Our new HHI favorite restaurant. Great menu. Good fried and broiled seafood selection, very fresh. Fast service, hard working servers even though they seemed a little understaffed. Great crab soup, shrimp, bucket of fish dinner, etc. Family, very informal. We made reservations 2 wks ahead,...wait time was 1-3/4 hours w/o a reservation on a Sunday night. Rebuilt beautifully after their fire 2-3 years ago. Careful with the left turn into the restaurant across the highway. Would be impossible w/ Sat afternoon incoming traffic.More

Had dinner at Crazy Crab at Jarvis Creek, after having been to Crazy Crab in Sea Pines several times. We have always been satisfied with the quantity and quality of the food. Unfortunately, this time was an exception. I ordered the "Captain's Platter", which was...one of the most expensive items on the menu at around $35. I generally have ordered the fried seafood platter and have never been disappointed. Well, this platter was a joke. A 3 oz piece of flounder, maybe. 2, yes 2, whole shrimp, 2 scallops and a one bite crab cake! The only item of quantity was the broccoli and carrots. Which were bland. I left hungry, even after extra snacking on the hush puppies. I should have asked about portion size, but I never imagined a "platter" of food would be so skimpy. Not sure if things have changed or not, but I definitely won't risk another disappointment. Our server, Anya, was terrific. I wish the owners would put as much effort into their food that she did as a server.More

Crazy crab has been a long time favorite for my family. I came in around 2 so I figured service would be less then stellar, however this was inexcusable. I ordered a fried seafood platter, and my flounder was completely uncooked. The outside was steaming...hot, and the center was barely even warm. I then noticed that my 2 pieces of shrimp had not been deveined, and the fecal matter was clearly visible. The real kicker however, was when I attempted to leave, after still being required to pay for my meal, and tipping the server, i was chased down on the way to my vehicle. The waitress claimed i did not pay the full amount, and when she walked back into the store the cash was sitting right on the table. Absolutely horrible service, do not waste your time or money.More

The Crazy Crab in Jarvis Creek is head and shoulders nicer than its sister restaurant in Harbour Town. The ambience is really nice (we were seated outside) and the food was very good. We wanted drinks and seafood in a nice location, and that's what...we got.More

Stopped by for lunch and were happy with this place. Seated quickly outside, and the food was served promptly. Wait staff was helpful and friendly. The crab was excellent. Even my son had no trouble with it.

The setting is nice and the service was good but I would describe the food as assembly line seafood. Not bad but nothing that makes your tastebuds go “wow!”
