We are local and have enjoyed Crabby's more times than I can count. We always celebrate our anniversary there. We prefer lunch time as the prices are lower and the meal is just right. We have taken friends and family there and everyone has always enjoyed their food. The ahi tuna appetizer is great, as is the calamari or the new one we tried last visit - the portabella fries. They were delicious. The soups are good and so is the salad, I recommend the house dressing, honey lavender vinegrette. It is wonderful! My husband always upgrades to the autumn harvest salad.
My personal favorite entree is the sesame encrusted yellowfin tuna with asparagus over jasmin rice with mirin butter sauce.
The food is excellent, the presentation is beautiful, and the atmosphere is nice. I'm not a bread pudding kind of gal but I NEVER go to Crabby's without having an order of the bread pudding for dessert! It is one of the best desserts I've ever had. Have never had anyone think it wasn't fantastic.
Chef Damien Tiregol knows his stuff. If you're looking for a great seafood place in the 4-states area, look no further, Crabby's is the place to go. I think it's the best meal in Joplin.
