Straight out of the water, the Crab Stop did not disappoint! The Snow Crab appetizer and the Blue Crab Combo with huge jumbo shrimp were simply... delicious. Add a local IPA and the meal was 5 star! Mary made us feel right at home and we will be back.read more

Gem of a spot. I ordered the snow special which was very filling. I personally prefer a little heavier seasoning, but quite enjoyable. The view on... the deck is really nice and the breeze was too. If recommend stopping here for seafood.read more

I am so disappointed last year I gave them 5 star's. This year you all drop the ball I spent over $90.00 for hollow blue crabs. The meat that was... in them tasted old and mushy for a two person platter they gave three corns. And I drove a half hour for this very sad. I ate hear a year ago and it was great what happened!? On the plus side the staff was nice. But I can't give you more then 2 stars because this was a take out order and last year we are in.read more

Their crab legs are AMAZING! The seasoning was perfect! Our whole experience was wonderful: we relaxed with a beer while looking at the dolphins play... in the river. When we were ready, our server, Mary, put in our order and it was out to us in 10 minutes. What a fabulous way to start the week!read more

Mary G. Was not our waitress, however she greeted us at the door and was very welcoming and personable. She continued to be very attentive and seemed... to genuinely love her job. We will definitely be visiting again. Alex, our server did an amazing job as well! He also was very attentive, but not overbearing. He was observant and always right there when we needed him. The staff and food were tremendous and I would recommend this place to anyone.read more

First time going to The Crab Stop today. Service was terrible and place was dirty. We had to wait forever to be seated. I don't mind waiting but We... saw several people come in after us and were seated before us. Once we finally got seated we had to wait forever for drinks. I ordered a draft beer which wasn't even real cold. We got the shrimp special and it wasn't great at all. I've definitely had better for cheaper than it's price of $17.00. The waiter/ bartender never even checked on us until much after we got our food. We were only eating our food because we were starving. My bowl was actually cracked and missing half of one side.. i can't believe they would even serve someone in a bowl that looks like this. I didn't take a picture but half of my bowl was missing on one side. When our waiter/bartender asked how our food was i told him that my half full beer was never really cold and the food wasn'tgreat.. He never offered to bring another drink or another entree. We complained and no one seemed to even care. We complained to another staff member and she said she would tell the manager. We waited once again forever and nothing. We said forget and paid the bill and wrote a note explaining why we left no tip and would never be back.read more

First of all I should say this is not my first time at Crab Stop. I had a party of six last night. As usual they were able to accommodate us... quickly. We were take care of by Mary. If you ever go to the Sebastian location ask to be seated in her section. She’s the best. Bright . cheery , funny and always has a smile on her face Service is always excellent when she takes care of your table. Food is always delicious. And it’s always nice when Ellis stops by your table . All the waitresses, and waiters are good and service is always on point.read more

I try this restaurant based on the reviews and it lived up to its reputation. The food was good service was a little slow but I put that down to post... Covid19 opening. The owner came out introduce himself and was very attentive to our table. I would definitely go back. I had the snow crab snack pack and it was more than enough to fill me up and had leftovers.read more

Just left this place, it was one of the worst dining experience I think I have had in over 20 years! My husband and I were out celebrating our... anniversary and stopped at the Crab Stop for appetizers and beer. We sat in a lovely spot outside by Sebastian River and put our order in for a beer and appetizer each. The place wasn't very crowded but it took over 30minutes for our food to come out. My husband ordered a dozen jumbo shrimp and I ordered Conch fritters. We got 6 medium sized shrimp and 'Conch fritters" that were 90% breadding with a hint of conch taste. After waiting so long, we did not want to wait any longer for the other 6 shrimp (which was on the bill) so we asked for a revised bill for the half dozen shrimp. We were told that it would "take a few minutes" to revise our bill and then we're pretty much ignored by our waitress, who abandoned her face mask. After waiting another 20 minutes, we figured out the bill ourselves from the menu and left the money and horrible conch fritters on the table (never did anything like that before). It kind of ruined our whole anniversary experience! Terrible service, terrible food! Avoid this place, there are so many other wonderful restaurants to go to in lovely Sebastian FL.read more

Wow, wow, WOW. Crab stop has the best food ever. Whenever we visit Sebastian, we have to make a trip to crab stop. I think it’s one of the best... meals we’ve ever had in our lives. The crab, potatoes, shrimp, and corn on the cob is to die for. Their secret seasoning is delicious. We had Tammy as our waitress and she was so kind and hospitable. Love this place!!read more

Had the pleasure of having lunch there today. From the moment we stepped in and throughout our lunch, the staff was friendly and very helpful (ask... for Mary, she's the best!). Then there's the view....right on the water! Our dinners were very tasty and the seafood was cooked to perfection. We plan on coming back next week and look forward to sampling more of the menu. High recommend this establishment.read more

This is the Best Seafood around. Family owned and run, they use a secret blend of spices in the drawn butter to make the crab legs, shrimp and all... taste perfect.-- and I mean perfect! The view is superb. Be on the lookout for special combo buckets for Valentine's day and date nights. They cook seafood right so it tastes great. I also love the rum bucket, not too sweet, just right. I drive from Melbourne regularly to have date night here (30 miles one way) .read more

One of my favorite stops in Sebastian. Friendly and fast service. All meals come with a beautiful secluded view of the Indian River Lagoon. They... offer a large selection of fried and non fried seafoods. I like to order the fish dip and the garden salad. You can often see dolphins, pelicans, and boats right from your seat with an ice cold beverage in hand.read more

What a fun environment. Enjoy sweeping views of the Indian River, and a festive atmosphere. The food was amazing. Try the Lobster Bites, Bisque,... Caribbean Seafood Rice, a variety of steamed crab and other tempting offerings. Ellis has created a sweet spot, You'll dance all the way home after sitting down to one of his tables for a meal.read more
