We finally succeeded, in our third attempt, in experiencing the Outback Crab Shack; on our first two attempts (which admittedly were tried on weekends) we could not get near the place. Do not be fooled by either the unassuming exterior, nor the interior, which has a decided "bar-feel" to it. There is a reason for the popularity of this place.... More

Went here for the first time and will definitely be going back. Kept hearing about it from friends and glad I finally experienced it. Come hungry because portions are very generous. I can usually eat a good sized meal but was unable to finish the single serving fried combo. Fresh seafood lightly battered. My friend had the vegetable boil and... More

A little out of the way and fish camp decor but you can overlook all that for the excellent food, the friendly staff, the large portions and a great price. A wide variety of food to choose from but I recommend the fish. Best Blackened Grouper I've had. Great food and wonderful friendly service does not have to be server... More

Low country boil Alaskan Snow Crabs...best in Florida. Casual dinning...great food off the beaten path in North Florida. They have a wide variety of seafood and "Swamp" food...but again, the Snow Crabs are awesome! They are huge like King Crab legs but reasonably priced. Added plus, the beer is COLD!

Arrive at the Dock area in your boat or drive via car and sit where you can see turtles alligators and birds of all sorts (sit on the patio and enjoy the music at nights) or sit inside but absolutely order the low country boil! Bring friends as it is a feast! Fabulous food! Service is decent most of the... More

Tried one last time only because we were invited to a birthday celebration there. 10 years ago this place was fantastic but we noticed it going downhill over the years and now it's not even passable. Ordered a bucket of clams and they came out cold and bland. Ordered a 1/2 dozen blue crabs and they weren't worth the effort... More

Fantastic atmosphere, really good food. The shrimp skewers are amazing. We'll go again the next time we're in St. Augustine.

PROS: -Great environment CONS: -Food was poor. Overcooked, but served cold. -Service was poor. -Prices are high Don't waste you time on this place. I can tell they do not really care very much. One look in the kitchen and you will not want to eat here.

Our first time at the Outback Crab Shack. Huge portions and very delicious. No A/C but it was very comfortable with the fans going. I saw that they had water hooked up to the fans so that if it got too hot, they could create a mist effect. Our waitress was fun and very attentive to our needs. We can't... More
