New owners, new attitude... New owners are doing a good job turning this place around. Allison from Mother's is working the bar go in and bend an elbow with her and see for yourself ;-)
Great Clam Chowder. It doesn't look like it would be the most appetizing place to eat from the outside, but looks are deceiving. They have great clam chowder and offer a clam bake (at least 2 people have to order it though). The clam bake is good depending on when in the season you order it. You should always order it around the time when the Alaskan King Crab is in season, because that is the best part of the clam bake. The first time I ordered it, it was fantastic. The second time, there were a lot fewer crab legs, and seemed a bit overcooked. But you can never go wrong with their clam chowder - enough for a whole meal.
The Worst Restaurant Experience Ever. Friday night - Twenty minutes to receive draft beer with restaurant at 35% capacitiy, food order arrived 1 hour 10 mins after ordered, food quality - THE WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD. Service poor, bad attitude from wait staff and junior management. No upper management on site to express complaints. Don't waste your money or time.
This place rocks!!!. I went there on saterday night it was so fun. I was with a couple of friends and we all had a good time. The food was great and they had a full bar. We sat down at a table and the waitress greeted us and took our orders. We got our drink in the matter of 2 mins and the food came out in 15 mins. The food was great i have the clam chowder and steak tacos. (TACOS ARE HUGE AND VERY GOOD) I will highly recommended this place to anyone!!! Great people, funny bartenders, nice cooks its all good. Every one should go there at lease once!!
Avoid at nights, food might be good.
Horrible experience at night !
It is the last place to close on Main St and therefore it attracts the sketchiest fake drunks that are to be found in Huntington Beach. Fights are common both inside and outside and it is a part of Crabby's experience. Bouncers are rude but quick at ending brawls brewing in every corner of this dark and seedy room. It is a tough job but they seem to enjoy it in their own way. Namely, they never smile. One of them looks as if he had just stepped off the set of a gangsta rap video. Tattoos, fake chains and expressionless faces immune to any form of emotion. Who are these people trying to fool? What are they trying to prove?
Fakeness galore ... It invades everything. Be careful !
The owners would be well advised to close a little sooner and let the above mentioned crowd disperse but I have a feeling that they value money more than reputation.
Best Bar and Food in Huntignton Beach. This place has alot of good food in it. Everytime I go there i always have a great time. I think that they have a good menu and everthing on the menu is good. You guys should go there.
Horrible Customer Service. My friends went to Crabby's the other night for the first time. The place was just ok but it was the bartender customer service that really put me off. I asked for a drink and a water for the dd and was told by the bartender and I quote "I'm not serving you water, I don't make any money off water." I informed him that the water was for our dd and still no response. I eventually had a plastic cup filled with water from a pitcher that had been sitting on the bar for a while slung at me. Needless to say I didn't take the water (god only knows how long it had been sitting out like that) and my friends and I left shortly there after. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
