If you are looking for the best 30A restaurant on the beach, you need to be on the far east side of 30A, between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach.
Hidden behind the gated entrance to High Pointe is a unique but wonderful outside bar/restaurant overlooking the blue aqua waters and fine white sand of the Gulf. Crabby Steve’s is one of only a few 30A Beachfront restaurants all along the 30A corridor.
If the first thing you notice about Crabby Steve’s is the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico, the second thing is the amazing food. Check their “Special” Board for the Local Catch of the Day, along with excellent choices for lunch or dinner. Some of my favorite Daily Specials are Shrimp or Scallop Wraps. The fresh fish offerings, including Tuna, Mahi, Grouper
The standards on the menu (which are far from standard!) include Chicken Caesar Salad, cheeseburgers, Kimchi Reubens, and a full array of great menu items. Children can enjoy chicken fingers and other
What makes Crabby Steve’s “hidden,” is that you can only access the restaurant from the beach in front of High Pointe. That makes Crabby Steve’s exclusive to the beachgoers who get “creative” enough to find High Pointe and then find beach access. The adventure is well worth the effort when you sit down to quench your thirst with a cold cocktail or a refreshing sweet tea, enjoy cuisine even the locals rave about, and bask in the view of the sun setting over the Gulf.
Crabby Steve’s tops the long list of highway 30A restaurants. Their food, drinks, and atmosphere are well worth discovering!!!
