The other two reviews I've read are so miss leading. Almost criminal! I I think the food and people who work at the Mad Crab are excellent .I've lived on Whidbey Island for 29 years and have eaten in all the restaurants around here. I've eaten at the Mad Crab many times and each time it was better than the last. Most weekends there's great live music downstairs in the bar. For my money the Mad Crab is a wonderful place to enjoy great food, great music, and a great night out with family or friends while over looking Coupeville Bay. I give four stars to the Mad Crap. So there!.
