My family of 5 decided to stop by the Crabshack on our vacation in brigantine beach. Don't let the outside fool you! It looks small but the food is fantastic. I couldn't believe EVERYTHING was wild caught. Do you know how hard it is to find seafood that isn't farm raised? The waitress with the dark hair made our experience... More

My family and I have been coming here for ten years and it is delightful every single time! The seafood is sold at a great reasonable price along with it being fresh with no preservatives or ever being frozen! It is also BYOB and the service is very fast and AMAZING! When eating here you really feel like you are... More

Casual seafood restaurant adjacent to seafood market. Clams with linguini came with a half dozen good sized steamers and a tons of clam chunks. Very large, satisfying meal. Sauce was good, though Laguna's was tastier.

While we were disappointed that they were out of their crab cakes, we ordered a Lobster Roll. It was a huge portion, enough for dinner plus a leftover lunch. There were large chunks of lobster with good seasoning. Cole slaw was very good, fries were hot and crisp. The seating area of this restaurant is very very small. Even though... More

This place is great! I go here a least once a week for the fresh seafood. The staff is wonderful and I must say the cook, Henry Wing is one of the finest cooks. The food is always prepared perfectly! The waitress I often get is Mellisa and she is just awesome . She is quick and efficient with her... More

I absolutely do NOT recommend this restaurant. First I ordered Caesar Salad for $4.99 and it came with romaine lettuce on a plate with a poor quality Caesar dressing on the side, Some of the lettuce was brown on the edges. I had the fried oysters which has to be frozen. The oysters were tiny and were loaded with breading... More

This Place is great! We had the crab cake sandwich and fish & chips. It was delicious. The crab cake was one of the best we ever had, and the fish was super fresh! The owner was incredibly nice; he opened the restaurant for us even though it was still closed when we arrived. We can highly recommend it and... More

We couldn't get enough of the crab shack! Two years in a row vacationing in Brigantine I found the crab shack provided the best seafood we ever had in all of our travels over the years. It was so good we even called Pete the owner on numerous occasions to prepare our seafood ahead of time. Service was fantastic and... More

Ordered platters. Portions were nice. Food was not seasoned well. Very bland, and I don't usually like a lot of salt, so for me to say it was bland says something. Even if I had read the reviews before hand, their kudos would have made me more disappointed. I would give another try though because everyone is so nice, and... More
