A good meal

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.

Lived in Plant city area for going on 25 years and Linda's has been a constant for me and my family and if we want good seafood we come here fast friendly and fresh. Not much on atmosphere but the food more than makes up for it.Prices are reasonable to!

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..

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
