Daniel and I decided to go on our honeymoon to our favorite vacation spot, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. We are spending a full week here so we decided to explore more restaurants on the island this time than we have before. The first write up is on The Crazy Crab located on Jarvis Creek. There are two Crazy Crabs on this island; one in Sea Pines that you have to pay $6 to get a parking pass for and one where parking is free. Low and behold the one with free parking had better yelp reviews so that’s where we went!
We decided to get two meals on the menu that both of us wanted so we could share them. This is are normal routine in a restuarant! The first meal we picked was the surf and turf with an 11oz steak and a fresh Maine lobster tail. The meal came with a baked potatoe on the side and also their vegetable of the day which was green beans. Daniel said the lobster tail was the best prepared lobster he has had in a restuarant which I would have to agree. The ONLY problem we had with this meal was the temperature of the steak was well rather than the medium we requested. The steak itself was still tasty with the seasoning The Crazy Crab used and the onion crisps were a very nice touch. The green beans were delicious and the baked potatoe was good.
The second meal we picked was the Lowcountry Boil Shrimp half pound. This meal came with corn on the cob, full boiled potatoes, Cajun seasoned sausage and of course shrimp! I was not a huge fan of the sausage, however; as the days go on you’ll all find out I am never a big fan of sausage unless it’s covered in maple syrup next to my eggs ;). Daniel said the sausage was good despite me thinking otherwise. The potatoes were boiled perfectly! You could cut through them with a fork. I added a little butter and pepper which made them perfect! The corn on the corn was soft and sweet. The shrimp ARE shelled so be prepared to get your hands messy. The shrimp were really good. I just would have liked them better if they would have seasoned them a little more to add some more flavor.
Overall the meal was wonderful regardless of how picky Daniel and I are with our food. Everything was fresh and tasted good. We would definitely go back again.
And just look at that view! We also had a wonderful waitress,Linda, who was helpful with any questions we had and just all around pleasant. If you and your family are ever on Hilton Head Island, I would definitely recommend going to The Crazy Crab on Jarvis Creek. Also, if you’re one of those people that like to get shirts where every you go (like me) they have a wide selection of children and adult sized shirts to pick from as well as plush toys for your little ones!
