Crabby Patty’s is a laid-back seafood restaurant that will charm visitors of all ages with its casual menu and fun coastal décor. The interior is decked out with surfboards, pirates, and even a giant crab, with vibrant coastal colors throughout, and walls of beachy signs and artworks. This scene sets the stage for the menu, which is loaded with an assortment of seafood, and classic post-beach favorites. Visitors can chow down on a variety of appetizers, (like fried pickles – a southern favorite), sandwiches, burgers, and Latin-inspired surf favorites like fish tacos. Seafood lovers will be equally pleased with the options, which include local staples like shrimp and scallops, as well as more unusual delicacies such as fried calamari and softshell crabs. Steamed seafood platters are also available for hearty appetites, and salads and soups are on the menu as well for lighter fare. With an effortlessly fun environment, Crabby Patty’s will be a favorite destination for kids, thanks to the abundance of crustaceans both inside and out – in fact, the outdoor smiling crab is a favorite spot for visitors to take photos.

Known as a great destination for a quick lunch, laid-back dinner, or Happy Hour break from the beach, this Havelock favorite is a must for “kids” of all ages.
