Amazing crab cakes! Staff is on the ball! 2nd best conch fritters! Crab legs ARE as amazing as they claim! Worth the drive! Don't leave the parking lot and find another spot. This is the one!!!

Love this place! With all the fancy places popping up in downtown, it was wonderful to find this casual gem in downtown Vero. Locals will probably enjoy this place more than the beach crowd. The staff was so nice and friendly. They were very accommodating to some special requests we made as well as helping my disabled mother feel comfortable. The crab cakes prepared in empty crab shells were our favorite item but the hush puppies, conch fritters, king crab, wings and fries were all great too. I'll have to return soon to try more items as it was difficult to pick from all the delicious sounding menu items. I would recommend coming with a small group or your family so you can try some of the table plates with lots of crab combos.

Food was fantastic. The garlic crab was a great portion and delicious. The service was great as well. Waitress was great at explaining all the options. The location is extremely casual and small right next to a mini mart. Parking is limited but food made up for it's shortcomings.

This place was great! Got a combo and split it! Great food! So sad they'd just run out of blue crab but the server was great and we had a great meal anyway! Best crab legs I've had in Florida! I plan to make another trip from Orlando just for this spot!

Came here with a party of 9. They happily accommodated us and service was great. We tried almost everything on the menu, and the snow crab combo was out of this world good. Crab was properly seasoned and cooked, and the potatoes were amazing. The combos/table meals are definitely worth the money and recommended for groups of 3 or more like tasted people. Certainly a gem in the Vero beach area.

We were disappointed two years when our dentist relocated his office to Vero Beach. Then we discovered the Crab Stop and now plan our appointments around lunch there. We are always greeted with a friendly welcome and love the comfortable decor. After 20 years in Louisiana, we hunger for crawfish, and the Crab Stop is the only place that knows how to season and cook them (in season). Off season, we enjoy the shrimp bowl with its well-seasoned boiled shrimp and potatoes, with sausage and a piece of corn on the cob to round out the flavors. It's so good they we haven't even tried the crab.

I had the fried shrimp basket with coleslaw and seasoned potatoes in butter. All three elements of the meal were absolutely done to perfection. The batter is not too heavy on the shrimp nor were the shrimp overcooked. The coleslaw was creamy, sweet and just the way I like it. And don't skip the potatoes! Incredible! Even the condiments, the cocktail and tartar sauce were clearly prepared by someone who know what they are doing in the kitchen. Several people around me had variations of crab bowls and they all looked delicious. Don't let the exterior appearance of this restaurant fool you. The owner is conscientious and a very kind man who walks around checking on the customers. The customer service by the wait staff echoed his example, was on point and rounded out an excellent Saturday lunch. The next time I am I Vero, I will be back for sure.

By far the best seafood I have ever ate. Great staff and a comfortable down home environment. I would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a great seafood feast.

Food is so tasteful, they don't take long to serve you. But they are always turning people around saying they are closed at 9 when the door says 11. If you go here speak to the bald dude best customer service in the place he will make sure you are taken care of. Also these menu prices are old but its an idea of what they have I really enjoyed the food & it was enough to share.
