Finally, A Good Place To Get Seafood in Plant City

If you are expecting fine dining, This is not the place. Want good food, this IS the place. We stopped in on Wednesday, after the lunch rush, and found a clean, pleasant surrounding to enjoy some seafood. I had the Crab Cake Sandwich and my wife had the Shrimp and Hushpuppies.

This is by far the worst seafood restaurant we have ever been to. Took over 30 minutes to get our dinner and it tasted like it came from a frozen box from the grocery store. Shrimp and clam strips were cold and hard and the grouper was undercooked.Fast food slow and at a gourmet restaurant price. We will not be... More

We were visiting the museum and this restaurant was across the street. Many people came for lunch and were happily in and out to get back to work. All tables seemed happy with what they were served.

This is not seafood, why would anyone return. Combo platter of fried shrimp and scallops, but I honestly couldn't tell which was what. Over fried, best thing on my plate was the loaded baked potatoe. 20 BUCKS for $5 bucks worth of food. They have camera's to scare of robbery, but I feel like I got robbed now. #NEVERaGAINTerrible

We visited Linda's Crab Shack for the first time today. The Group and Crap Cake was good but not great. The prices were acceptable. The waitress was very good however. It was a long way from home, so we probably will not go back.

Great place to eat, the crab cakes are a favorite. The place is small and not much on atmosphere but the food makes up for it. Its very busy on Bike night and Car show night. My husband and I eat lunch there pretty regularly.

When near Plant City and in the mood for seafood, Linda's is the place I go. Been eating there for years and have never had a single issue. Friendly staff, prompt service and the food is always cooked to perfection. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. If your looking for good seafood, this is the place.

Linda's Crab Shack has been around for many years and I have found that every time I go there they greet me and serve me made to order fresh hot seafood. The deviled crabs are homemade full of meat, the grouper is to die for and the seasoned steam shrimp never dissappoints. Prices are fair too. In my book fresh... More

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..
