Apparently this is one of the highest rated places in Vero, so my girlfriend and I had high expectations when we arrived here only to find a gross little shack nestled in a shopping plaza and almost out of view from the road. When we walked in, there was only one employee visible, not even a manager. She sat us in between other people and gave us tiny water cups, as if we asked for samples of water. She gave us the flimsy menus which were small and plain; not much for the eye. We then proceeded to order an appetizer and entree and she rolled her eyes at us when we asked for Maryland crab after she announced they were out of blue crab for the day. We were unbelievably shocked at her attitude as we are not big crab experts. The crab was alright, the seasoning was a bit much but altogether not too important. The crab cake appetizer she brought to us 15 minutes after eating and did not even take the app off the bill. We could not believe our eyes at the bill and left the disgusting shack in a bitter rage. Needless to say, Captain D's would have served as a better alternative.....

Second time there was last night. We are from out of town, but my family has fallen in love with this place. The owner and staff makes you feel right at home. Then there is the food. I can sum it up in one word: phenomenal. Simply the best crab and shrimp I have ever had, period. I hope to enjoy this place when we visit again as it is truly a Vero Beach gem.

Absolutely the best seafood I’ve ever had! The butter seasoning was amazing! Audi and the rest of the staff were delightful. Definitely worth experiencing. You won’t be disappointed.

A group of 6 was jumped in front of our group of 4, and we were told we would be seated in just a second. 20ish minutes later we were finally seated. 4 meals all came out at separate times, first person in our group was done eating by the time the last meal came. Food was great, and has been every time I've visited, but the service left something to be desired this time around. We'll visit again before we leave, and I hope to be able to leave a 5 star review then! Update: dropped another star. Went back on a Tuesday at 1130 for lunch. Less then ten people in the building, only two in our party. Our second meal came out over 25 minutes after the first one. Crab cakes seemingly all bread. Sad, I really liked this place. Won't be back. Heard there is a new one up in Sebastian, may have to give that a shot next time down.

I love their blue snack pack. It comes with 3 blue crabs, sausage, potatoes, and shrimp. ALL of which are packed with rich flavors. Crab Stop is a pretty popular restaraunt in this area and is almost always packed with hungry seafood lovers. I usually order my food "to go" and have a little picnic by the river to avoid the large crowd.

Delicious are not enough words. We absolutely loved it. We will be back probably monthly if time allows. Everything was fresh. My only suggestion is to add more corn and less potato. Fantastic! ! A must!

Best crabs we've had south of Maryland! Warm and friendly place-owner and staff are terrific. Don't let the modest appearance fool you-this is one of the best restaurants in Florida. Prices are moderate but value is exceptional.
