Great food at a great value. Joe, the owner came out to chat with us. He told us how they got scallops and fish fresh each day. The crab bisque was amazing! It was all crab! We enjoyed all of it and took a quart of soup to go!

We decided to check this place out after reading the reviews. Our experience has been that some of the small, proverbial "hole in the wall" places have the best food. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in because this place was anything but a shack. One of the important things to remember is that this restaurant's primary business is... More

We placed an order for pick up. Food was ready on time. The fried flounder, red crab soup and lobster roll were excellent. The crab cakes were good, but we've had better. $80 for two sandwiches, two platters and a quart of soup.

Ignore any reviews about the atmosphere, there isn't meant to be atmosphere. This place started as take out only, the customers demanded tables. With that being said, it is clean, cozy, and friendly, the owner checks in everyone regularly. This is the best and freshest seafood I have found, we are a seafood family, have enjoyed it from Alaska to... More

Went here from Cape May after we couldn't get in to the Lobster House as the queue was too long. This is a great little casual restaurant with good food. Not at all fancy - but chowder was great. As was the fried squid and everything we ordered was mopped up and finished. Don't expect fancy. Just expect good seafood.... More

Joe's seafood is still the best I have had while staying in Wildwood. We ordered the broiled seafood platter and enjoyed excellent seafood. The Crab and Seafood Shack is predominately a carry out restaurant with 8 tables for those that want to dine in. We make sure to stop here every time we come to Wildwood. Strongly recommend you stop... More

My wife and I found this place on trip advisor and we were glad we stopped in. As soon as you walk in you realize how clean this place is. We ordered a broiled crab cake sandwich a few blue claw crabs and an order of little necks. Everything we ate was delicious and cooked perfectly. We chatted a while... More

We visited the Crab and Seafood Shack in mid June for takeout (seating inside is VERY limited so plan to do take out). We ordered the crab bisque to start with which was out of this world! A delicious combination of flavors left me wanting more. I ordered a combination plate which consisted of broiled shrimp, clams, flounder, and a... More

This place was exactly what you want when your ate the shore! Fresh seafood, friendly service nothing fancy just honest good food. The food is great there is no fancy painting or gas lit lamps. The food is served in to go containers. Some of the best seafood I ever had was served on newspapers. We don't usually go to... More
