Great location, great views, huge patio, beautiful interior seating as well. Professional waitstaff. Superb service. Great selection at bar. We chose a live lobster and large crab claws. Wow!!! Excellent. I don't know what else to say. This is a must if you are a fan of crab and lobster.

We just finished a jungle tour and decided to get a bite to eat. I was hungry for crab legs so this sounded perfect. Sadly they didn't serve crab legs. So we decided to just relax outside and eat an appetizer and my husband had some beer. The appetizer we had was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely... More

We went to Crab Shack for dinner on our last night in Cancun. It was amazing. The service was awesome, we felt very taken care of. I got a stuffed fish fillet, it was a heavy dish but sooooo delicious. Prices were very reasonable and the view was gorgeous. Ended the meal with a cappuccino and a beautiful view of... More

The food tasted delicious. Although there wasn't much. I was told it was $39 for a crab dinner. It was $202. Not happy about that. Service and ambiance was nice.

Good food and reasonably priced. I had the grouper, stuffed with shrimp and crab meat - with this amazing sauce. That along with the Crab House Rice and grilled vegetables definitely hit the spot. The highlight of our night was being able to throw rolls to the crocodile that lives below the pier. Fortunately they gave us extra, because those... More

We had a group dinner at the Crab House. They set us up on their dock, with a beautiful table set up to see the sunset over the bay. A wonderful assortment of appetizers were served along with drinks before we were seated. The meal included a very generous salad, followed by the most tender and well-prepared beef tenderloin one...

We had dinner here at the recommendation of our concierge and we were not disappointed. We did not have the special seafood platter for 2 because it was just too much food for us but would recommend it for hearty appetites. We had their signature fish filet with a Caesar salad that melted in our mouths as well as the... More
