A Local Legend


Tropix Beach Bar & Grill is operated by the very same family that brought you The Original Crabby Bill’s. The Crabby Bill’s Family Brands was founded by local legend Crabby Bill Loder. The adventure started in New Jersey where Bill Loder and his wife Dolores were beginning a life and a family together. The pair had been in the seafood business since early after their marriage in 1954 when they sold blue crabs on the side of the road, and also owned a small seafood restaurant together.  With a start like that, you know this family is serious about seafood!

What started as a small operation in Indian Rocks Beach, FL has grown to be the Crabby Bill’s you know today. From several locations, including restaurants in Redington Shores (1975), Madeira Beach, Bay Pines, and Tyrone, and many boats, crab traps and refrigeration trucks later, we set roots in April of 1983 in Indian Rocks Beach. In February of 1987, Crabby Bill’s dream to own a business that could support his family and be passed down to his kids, became a reality. And so, history was made. Crabby Bill’s has continued to grow over the years. What started as a small 800 square foot building on Gulf Blvd now includes several additions to the Crabby Bill Family BrandsCrabby GiftsJake’s Mexican CantinaLuLu’s Oyster Bar and Tap HouseSeabreeze Island Grill, Crabby Bill's Off The Hook, Clearwater Oyster Company, and Tropix Beach Bar & Grill!
