When you’re at the beach, finding the perfect place to eat is the key to a great beach day. When you’re sightseeing or playing in the sand and the sea for the day, you eventually need a place to relax and have some great food. Having so much fun in the sun makes you hungry! If you are in the Clearwater Beach area, Crabby’s Dockside is the perfect choice. We recently had the opportunity to visit after our day at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and it was the perfect end to a wonderful day!
This three story restaurant right in the heart of Clearwater Beach is a fun, casual restaurant with delicious food and drink, and a very convenient location. Crabby’s Dockside has amazing views and friendly staff.

When we go out to eat with our family of 7, one of the things that impresses me most as a mom and as a consumer, is the quality and options for the kid’s meals. If a meal includes a drink, and a side, I call that a win. AtCrabby’s Dockside in Clearwater Beach, you get a win with the kid’s meals! The kids all know that if their meal does not include a drink, it’s water all around! So they were very happy to find they could have lemonade after a big day at the aquarium.
The kid’s meals also had very generous portion sizes, which were large enough that my younger kids easily could have shared. The kid’s meal portions were the size of adult meals at many other restaurants! Check out these happy faces!

On the menu, there are a lot of delicious offerings, with great seafood choices. For the vegetarian option, I chose the Alfredo pasta, which was absolutely delicious! As usual, my husband ordered the salmon, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. For an appetizer, we enjoyed the Creamy Crab and Spinach Dip, and when we ran out of chips and still had more dip left, our kind and helpful waitress happily brought lots more. This was a huge hit with the children!

All of our food was delicious and the views were amazing! There is really fun, carefree theming throughout the restaurant. It was a little rainy during our visit, so we did not sit on the third floor which had open air seating and gorgeous views. But we went up to visit and take in the amazing Clearwater Beach vistas!
