Oddly the Crab Shack is still holding it's own in Tripadvisor ratings! It was great while it lasted, but is long gone.

This was a nice surprise to have on the Spit. Wasn't busy, but the deals were great. I don't know if they will be open in 2013, but it would be great if they were!

Blue King Crab for $28/lb and Snow for $17/lb, those prices are unbeatable on the spit. Elsewhere you're spending $50+ for Red King. Coconut encrusted Crab Cakes are also quite tasty. The view is quaint and the stools are comfy and the staff is more than gracious. Will be back, again and again and again.

Great crab and great service. I took about an hour an a half to eat it and the worker was really friendly and nice and talked to me the whole time.

This place is misleading. It is located next to Captain Paddies on the spit and is only take out with no inhouse dining. Now why would anyone want to drive all the way out on the spit just for takeout food?
