Crabby Jo's Ratings and Reviews
Booked through opentable on the Crabby Joes website for 9pm. I rang at 9:05 to say we were on the way and was told the kitchen was closed and they don’t work off open table. They also said the website needs to be updated.
Not my problem. Their website is Their problem. I was a regular in Crabby Joes, I won’t be going again. We were left without dinner that. night.
When we arrived, the waitress did not have us in the book! I showed her my email, saying you sent a reminder of our reservation today, she snapped as said "open table" and were shown a table in the middle of the packed resturant. I said we requested a booth seat, that is the only table free. Eventually some people left a booth seat and I got up an asked we would like that seat, she then looked at me and spoke in her native language to another waitress which was the height of rudeness as I had no idea what she was saying. We eventually got the booth table, food was fantastic but the waiter never returned to see was all ok. Shabby and rude service on this occasion. Other occasions I have eaten there never had a problem. Obviously Open Table reservations are not put into the resturant book!! Not good
OK Not the same standard as before .Fish very greasy with cheap batter ,
old chips ,
chowder thickened with flour and very synthetic tasting.
Mussels had that strong wine taste that happens when someone is not sure of themselves.
Manager on duty was great , very welcoming .The lady who served us was great. there are a few from the team who just like to pose and flick their hair ,
There was one young lady who could not meet my gaze , she seemed very upset that she had to clear our plates and change a very salty portion of veg soup for another bowl of chowder.
We Won't be back. Very disappointed over all though.
We were just lookin around on the open table site and found this cool spot, easy to get to, even easier to make reservations with OT. We were greeted at the door with a great smile and warm welcome, seated quickly (get there before 6pm cause it gets busy). The menu has a great list of meats and cheeses along with some great appetizers to start. The salads and entrees have all been thought out with great detail and the Duroc double cut pork chop was juicy and flavorful and cooked to perfection. The sides or "me toos" are all super enticing but we had the Brussel sprouts with bacon and walnuts, if you just had those you would be more than satisfied. Topped it of with a peach cobbler for two and the nights dinner was absolute perfection!
