Crafty Crab Restaurant Review Fort Lauderdale





Chris, our server, was excellent as was the food and upon our entering the host greeted and sat us immediately. All in all, except for 2 negatives which I will get to later, a good experience.


Allen had the 6 scallops in garlic butter , which looked and tasted fine and he also had the chicken strips with fries, again giving a positive response while I had the fried shrimp with onion rings and wasn't a bit disappointed with the size of the shrimp, the breading and taste. Allen had a soda while I stuck to water. The check with tax and tip came to $50 which is a bit high for lunch but more and more about par for the course in full service restaurants.


Now to the negatives which may or may not have been noticed by other customers but having been a server for 38 years I pick up on these things.


There was a table across from us that was dirty when we walked in and was still dirty when we left. The floor was strewn with garbage and the table a mess and the baby chair gave me a hint a kid had been there!!


As far as I could tell the servers were responsible for cleaning and resetting their own tables as I had observed Chris doing just that with his tables and he verified it when I asked. The other server was still being seated though they didn't clean their tables never once taking a dish or glass or anything each time they walked back to the kitchen going empty handed in spite of carrying a bar serving tray. I didn't see anyone who might have been a manager so that might be the problem.


Another problem is just a guess on my part. There had been another restaurant there which had been very good--great Prime Rib specials--but the entrance-way to the rear where the parking is can be very quickly passed by unless you know where you are going and don't go on a rainy day as there is no way to let someone off at the front door and you will get wet walking/running/going to restaurant entrance!


Don't know how to solve that problem but the original architect wasn't really thinking right with the design.

So you went to the Crusty Crab -- was Spongebob there? It isn't his job to sweep up, I think that's Squidward's job.
