My family and I were passing through town and spotted on the corner Linda's Crab Shack..so, glad we did. They have the BEST FRIED GROUPER, and amazing home-made devil crabs, packed full of crab meat. The steamed garlic shrimp are nice size and full of flavor as well. We will definitely go back to Linda's when in town again..

Walking around downtown, Plant City, you do not have many options to eat. Two of the restaurants we went to were closed for summer. We came across this place and even though it looked like a dive, we have traveled enough that sometimes the dives have the best food. Well we were not disappointed. Does it need updating, maybe but... More

Linda's Crab Shack has been around for a very long time. The food is priced well for what you get. However, they were out of a lot of the market priced items that we were interested. Not sure how much was fresh vs frozen, but the food was good. The price made up for the other issues.

I've came to linda's for years. I dine in and I also call ahead for the best devil crabs. The owner is always there working, and everyone is very friendly. They make their own devil crabs and they do not skimp on the meat. Only downside is I get a shell once in awhile. I'm just picky bout those kinda... More

Party of ten, called ahead so we were seated right away. Crab cake for appetizer worked out great. Most of menu is deep fried. The place is a good local spot needs to be updated badly!

I've been coming here since I can remember. The food is great and the waiters are friendly. The prices are cheap and I always enjoy coming here.

I love Linda's deviled crabs. Yes, they have a wonderful thick breading with crunchy fried coating and crabmeat centers, just like they are supposed to. I love the crunchy exterior and the moistness of the breading surrounding the crab centers. All you need is a little crystal hot sauce and you have tasted a local favorite. They offer a deviled...

We had fried grouper and deviled crab. The former was great - light flavorful breading and not fishy at all. The latter was terrible - thick doughy coating and they looked like small footballs. What made it bad was that the waitress recommended the deviled crab! We ordered corn fritters for an appetizer which were 12 small yummy fried nuggets... More
