Houston Press' Description

The restaurant is on the second story of the Stingaree Marina in the little town of Crystal Beach on Bolivar Peninsula. They serve all kinds of fresh Gulf seafood, but their claim to fame is barbecued crabs. Barbecued crabs were first made famous by a place in Sabine Pass called Granger's (later a place called Sartin's took over the tradition), but they have since moved inland to Nederland. Today, Stingaree is the best of the barbecued-crab joints left on Bolivar. These crabs are boiled, dipped in seasoning and then finished in the broiler. Come at sunset for a spectacular view.

    Burgers, shrimp baskets and Sting-a-ritas with live music downstairs, if you don't want to wait to sit down upstairs.

  • Erin P. on 04/06/11

    Oysters jubilee!!

  • Selena S. on 11/10/12

    Worth the drive! Crab balls are great and so is the bread pudding. Everything is fresh and yummy.

  • Kristan on 11/09/12

    Crab balls and Gumbo- so so delicious!

    This Crystal Beach institution is all about fresh, local seafood. If you're lucky enough to be here during winter, Oysters Jubilee is worth every penny. Oysters are ACYE on Sundays, too (in season)
