A Local Favorite since 1986

Crabby Oddwaters began decades ago in a tiny building on Mary's Creek, where local fisherman gathered to sell their day's catch. Crabby's has since evolved to into a full-service restaurant and bar, popular with locals and visitors alike, offering fresh seafood caught daily by descendants of those same local fishermen. Be sure to visit Bill's Seafood, located on the first floor, to see what's biting in the Atlantic today.

FocusED On Sustainability

You've heard the phrase "farm to table." We are "ocean to table" and darn proud of it. Crabby's avoids destructive fishing methods to ensure that we aren't damaging habitats or depleting fish species or increasing pollution that damages the habitats of the fish we catch.


Owner Tim Soots purchased Crabby's, along with Bill's Seafood Market (on the ground floor below Crabby's) in 2019. Tim's passion is fresh seafood, so he wasn't satisfied just buying a seafood restaurant and market. To be absolutely sure the seafood on your plate is the freshest around, Tim also owns his own shrimping and fishing boats, which bring most of in the daily catch you see on your table when you visit Crabby's.
