If the food weren't so darn good, this upstairs restaurant would still be worth a visit just to read the story of how it got its "damp and crawly name" (a story told in one easy-to-remember sentence of barely more than 400 words). This is a handsome restaurant with an enclosed deck overlooking a Mary's Creek with views of the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a beautiful stained-glass mural of a beach scene beside the front door. The tables have holes in the center where you can pitch your shucked shells, and the ambiance and cuisine are high quality. Fresh local seafood of all types is the focus, some very interesting appetizers, wonderful nightly specials and tasty grilled foods, including soft-shell crabs. Delicious soups, such as she-crab, shrimp bisque and clam chowder, are available. Land food is offered as well. Entrees are served with fresh seasonal vegetables, a choice of rice or the potato of the day and sweet hush puppies. Full bar service is available, as are daily drink specials. Crabby Oddwaters is above Bill's Seafood on the mainland side near the new bridge and is open daily for dinner at 5 PM April through September. Call for off-season hours.
