A Gulf Coast favorite will celebrate four decades at Indian Rocks Beach this weekend.

The Original Crabby Bill's at 401 Gulf Blvd. hosts a range of activities and specials to honor its 40th year as one of Pinellas County's most prominent seafood restaurants.

A few of this weekend’s festivities include a 1980s-themed bar crawl on Friday, April 28, alongside oyster specials, costume contests, drink specials, games and giveaways all weekend-long.

Crabby Bill's also hosts a slew of live bands and musicians from Friday-Sunday.

“On April 28, 1983, we first opened Crabby Bills—my parents Dolores and Bill have created a family business that’s lasted four decades,” Matt Loder Sr.—Crabby Bills’ second generation owner—recently wrote on Facebook. “Brothers and sisters and many others who became part of our Crabby Bills family have made something special. Today, our Crabby Bills family continues the tradition my parents began so long ago.”

Alongside its weekend full of festivities, Crabby Bill’s will continue to offer its daily menu of baked oysters, crab and shellfish platters, blackened grouper sandwiches and fish tacos.

Crabby Bill’s second location on St. Pete Beach will not be participating in this weekend's promotions.
