You'd think that for a place called "Crabby's" you'd get crab legs at the buffet NOPE don't even think about it. So much false advertising DO NOT GO HERE I repeat DO NOT GO HERE A fillet o fish at McDonalds is better than this crappy "restaurant"

Waited to be seated even though there was not a line, the girls were too busy texting. Then when I did get seated the waiter didn't bring any knives forks, napkins, nothing. After waiting a while I went looking for utensils and found them near the bar, and then I got salt and pepper from another table. I tried the food...disgusting. The cod was chewy and very stale, the chicken made me gag, the freis were ok, the chicken tenders were the only thing half way decent. Will never return, thinking ofreporting them to the health department.

We showed up and were told they no longer had all you can eat. Should have left at that point. But we stayed, very poor service and poor quality food.

Advertisements all over town and even in the restaurant state all you can eat seafood. This is not accurate and according to staff is from last year. The menu was very limited and service was slow. We almost left due to the waiter took so long to bring our drinks. I wish we would have trusted our instinct. The food did not taste fresh; the crab tasted dried out and old, the mussels were chewy and were so nasty they couldn't be swallowed, the chicken was so dry- my 8 year old daughter was complaining for hours afterward. The mixed drinks were very diluted. The only positive note is our family has had something to joke about all week stating-"be good or we're going to Crabby´s!" Also, the food was very over priced.

So, my girlfriend wanted crab, so why not go to a place called "Crabby's?" 2 parking lots for extra parking, I should have known there was a problem when even the main parking lot wasn't even half full. So onto the visit. We are told walking in the door, "no more buffet!" Ok... So... I didn't know there used to be a buffet... But whatever, I should have known that was a signal to leave. We are seated and no silverware or napkins.... Ok so my girlfriend did ask to be seated in a booth and it wasn't prepared... On the the food. Eastern European waitress who struggled with the language but hey, "Welcome to America." Cheap cheesy decore that looked like it might have once been funny. Girlfriend orders crab and I order ribs. My son... A burger medium. Food gets here in like 5 mins and wow how'd they do that? Ribs... Eh.. Cheap, lots of fat and watery BBQ sauce. No Famous Dave's. Crab? Told it was good but how can you screw up dropping crab in boiling water. Burger... Raw... Blood dripping through the bun!!!! So girlfriend tells the waitress and she offers to replace it. My son was disgusted and didn't wanna eat anything else. So here is the absolute best part. Eastern European manager comes over, kinda apologizes and again offers to replace the burger. Girlfriend says he is sickened by it and doesn't want a replacement. "Ok, I cannot replace burger, he ate some..!" Oh yeah he did eat that one bite... "I offer 50%..." Well thank u fine sir, any other restaurant would have comped the 8 dollar burger... Whatever!!! So then the waitress hounds us. My girlfriend hadn't even touched her baked potato and waitress comes to table saying, "ready for check???" Serious??? Okay then miss, why not? Rush us out, I'm sure you have plans that don't involve tourists... Oh wait, the Dells survives because of tourists... Whatever! Unbelievable! Do not waste your time, your money or support such a lousy business. Thank you Trip Advisor! I should have listened!!!!
