Really good food, especially the seafood and excellent service.
Great food, great service and great tunes! in a cozy setting. Went here for Valentines and it was a really positive experience for us. The early bird was super value with great size portions. We will definitely be back, thanks guys!
I absolutely love crabby joes, the food is amazing, lots of local sea food, everything is made to order and fresh. The fillet steak is my favourite with chips and onion rings. The staff are the friendliest people ever and are so helpful . I highly recommend this place.
I went to CJ's with high expectations & excitement as I had heard fantastic things about the place. Sadly, the food really let the place down. The staff were friendly and helpful but looked a little frazzled, as having worked for many years in the industry it comes down to poor organisation. The food was poor, an example of this being, we ordered crab claws and as we were by the harbour and many fish shops, you would think you would be served the meatiest and tastiest but sadly out came small claws with little meat on them and absolutely swimming in butter. The chips were dry. The chorizo & prawns were inedible and the starter portion of calamari was huge (not a major complaint but it was supposed to be a starter and therefore a lot went to waste). We ordered 2 gls of the house white wine and out came something the colour and flavour of honey, thankfully the staff kindly replaced it for 2 different gls's but it was a higher price (I know wine is preferential so I won't entirely blame them but a more generic, light and fresh white might be more appropriate?). I don't feel great leaving a bad review but I am of the belief that without knowing your faults, how can you improve. I didn't have the guts to say it to the staff while there and I wish I had, but I do hope that maybe from reading this there could be some improvements made.
Great Food and Service, restaurant was quite busy at the time we arrived so the table we were put on was a bit of a tight squeeze, but another table was freed up and the waiter quickly moved us without even being asked which was great. Food was brilliant and great value.
Overall food was lovely. Staff were friendly. Asked waiter for a drink, never got it but was charged for it as a take away. Waitress asked if we wanted to see dessert menus, we said yes but she never brought them over.
Good food good value worth checking he journey!
Very good size portions. Wine list was a little limited but we did find something interesting.
The staff were very attentive overall a lovely evening.
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.
The food was gorgeous , the staff were very friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble
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
We had a really fabulous fish dinner, looking out on the harbour , with the best of service.
Nothing fussy , pleasant friendly staff, great fish. Stephanie
The food is excellent. I would highly recommend for anyone who likes fish. Also the perfect place to bring someone who is somewhat on the fence regarding, cause after Crabby Joes they'll realize they actually love it
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.
Ate here on a Friday evening- place was busy & lively. Staff great with the children & everyone loved the food. We will be back
We booked and had our table ready on arrival. The kids wanted to see the fish tanks, and although late in the evening we were escorted back to have a look.
The service was very professional and the kids were looked after really well!
Food was excellent!
It was a nice experience dining at crabby jo's i felt welcomed i will always tell my friends to visit the place
Really good food. Very fresh seafood choices.
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!
