A Trip to Bikini Bottom

A Trip to Bikini Bottom

Hubs and I went for a boat ride yesterday. We started from the small town of Greenbackville, Virgina, near the Maryland/Virginia border on the Eastern Shore. We motored around Chincoteague Bay for a couple of hours and once the boat was safely back on the trailer, we headed to the local eatery, which was conveniently located right next to the boat ramp.


Now, the sign is a little weathered and from the outside, the place doesn’t look like much. But The Crusty Crab Seafood Shack is a real treat.

The inside is decorated with an eclectic mixture of SpongeBob paraphernalia, pirate decor, and beautifully painted sea life.


There is a small dining area when you walk in, but just beyond that on the far end of the building is a larger, screened in  porch set up with tables and chairs. Lighting is provided by lamps made from peck baskets, a cool breeze is stirred up by some ceiling fans, and seashell wind chimes hang from the ceiling.


The view is amazing.

A visit to the one-toilet, unisex bathroom is, oddly enough, pretty entertaining. There is a LOT to look at in there. After a minute of taking it all, you turn to lift the lid on the toilet, and you see this:


As you are doing your business, take a look up. A shelf of coconut heads is staring down at you.


Then look even farther up, at the ceiling.


The back of the door is similarly decorated.


There’s a lot of poop humor in the bathroom.


But back to the dining room.  Each table has a basket with condiments and utensils.


Malt vinegar may seem like a strange thing to put on every table, but it’s the perfect complement to the boardwalk style fries. Mine came with the Crabby Patty, a grilled chicken breast (or burger, if you prefer) smothered in creamy crab dip and topped with cheddar cheese.


It was delicious! And look at the amount of food. Can you believe it was just $9.99?

Then, after our meal, we were treated to an amazing sunset over the bay.

This little seafood shack is local gem. Stop by if you’re ever in the area.

The Crusty Crab Seafood Shack is located at 2118 Harbor Drive in Greenbackville VA. Telephone  757-824-5437.  Due to limited seating, reservations are recommended for dinner, especially on the weekend.
