Mr. Krabs is sad. He has all the success, but he believes something is missing. So he decides to open up new restaurants. The player has to help SpongeBob serve customers at the Krusty Krab and his other new restaurants.

After the first four restaurants, a fifth restaurant, Le Krab, is opened. King Neptune then gives SpongeBob an extra pair of arms to work twice as much.

In the final scene after beating all the levels, Mr. Krabs happily sits with all the money he made, only to suddenly wake up to the sound of SpongeBob's voice. It is then revealed the whole game was just Mr. Krabs' dream, based on SpongeBob stating they only have one restaurant.


As the player goes through the game, they will have to serve customers in the limited time they have. If the player fails to serve them in this limited time, they will have to leave.


  • Minnow (Incidental 7): Basic customer at the start. Tips well, moderately patient.
  • Cod: Very patient in line and at the table, but doesn't tip well.
  • Anchovy: Tips well, but very impatient.
  • Grouper (Incidental 27): Tips ok; very impatient in line, but takes a long time eating.
  • Sturgeon: Tips well; very patient in line, but becomes impatient when seated.
  • Bubble Bass: The VIP customer; give a star if they leave happy, costs lost of points if left mad.


  • The Krusty Krab
  • Bikini Palace
  • The Dutchman's Inn
  • The Anchors Away
  • Le Krab


  • The Dutchman's Inn looks similar to the Flying Dutchman's ship.
