Creative Contractors, Inc. (CCI) recently completed the new Crabby’s Dockside restaurant at Clearwater Beach, Florida. The restaurant broke ground on June 16, 2016 with the demolition of an existing two-story restaurant. CCI then began the construction of the new 10,000-square-foot, three-story restaurant.
The first floor features an open-bar concept, with outside seating on the open patio. It includes one of the three fullservice bars, and has a seating capacity of 113. The bar face is covered with porcelain wood-like tile, with quartz countertops. The second floor is an enclosed dining space, surrounded by expansive windows on all sides that provide an open view. This is also where the kitchen is housed, with dual lines and a service elevator for ease in serving food to the 1st and 3rd floors. It incorporates another full-service bar finished with the same porcelain wood-look tile, which is also on the floor throughout the dining area. The third floor is completely open air, and provides amazing views of the beach as well as the intracoastal waterway. The third level has beautiful cedar wood ceilings throughout, including the canopy at the main entrance.
It has the largest full-service bar of all the floors, and is finished with a quartz countertop and glass mosaic tile on the face of the bar – to mimic the colors of the Gulf of Mexico. The restaurant officially opened on March 24, 2017, just in time to service the peak demands of the spring break crowd.
