Love the crab

The food is reasonably priced, nice taste to it. I had the shrimp wrapped in bacon and love the taste of it.

We were seated out on the patio where it was quite chilly for my two small kids. It took at least 10 minutes for anyone to even greet us and take our drink order, much less get our food order in in a timely fashion - another thing that makes it hard with kids. We had a long wait before... More

I often wonder about the people we see in the area of the Redondo pier. How many of them are tourists and how many are locals? We used to walk down there for Mexican food with a view, hot dogs on a stick or inexpensive fried seafood. There was an Indian restaurant I liked and a fish market I fancied,... More

The waiting staff were barely interested, the food was average and the atmosphere lacking. Would not recommend this with so many other good eateries around.

This is what I would expect from a seaside seafood restaurant. Met Darryl (great server at Joe's) on the pier while he was on his break. He recommended the Baird which turned out to the best crab my friend has had as far as crabs go. Darryl even explained the difference between Baird and King crabs calling it the "Queen... More

The restaurant is located right on the waterfront. Right as you enter, you know it's going to be awesome! The servers are all peppy and pumped up. At certain points thorough our visit, the all gathered in the center and started dancing! This is the best Crab Shack location I have been to. I think this restaurant is a MUST!... More

I visited the location again. My last visit was nearly 3 months ago. My waitress this time around was Amilia. She was kind and attentive. My friend and I had needed extra's and we got what was requested in a short amount of time. When we arrived it seemed to have a new host since it showed he was still... More
