Excellent food and staff. I'd definitely recommend a stop by in the place. Chances are if you're anywhere in Wildwood, you're not far from this place.

WAIT A MINUTE??!!! There is something OTHER than deep fried and cheese steaks in Wildwood???? Talk about awesome. After a few days down the shore, many of us are in dire need of a decent meal. The food here was fantastic and my only regret was that we only went once during our trip. We had a bigger party, 5... More

Nothing fancy here, just the freshest and best seafood available. Everyday they walk next door to the local seafood market and select the finest ingredients. We had the crab chowder and then split a seafood platter. There was ample food for both of us. This place is mostly a takeout joint with a few tables. The food is served in... More

Wow. My husband and I ordered the lobster roll and six crabs. The food was truely amazing. Our only regret was that we didn't return for an encore before we left to return to the west coast. We cannot wait to return. Also, the staff was very nice and the owner was kind to approach each table to say hello... More

I had visited the Crab & Seafood Shack last year on vacation and just had to go back this year. The food was just as wonderful. The fish is so fresh and you have to love the "to go" atmosphere. The owner is the most friendly guy and he comes around to make sure you are enjoying your meal. I... More

After hearing how great the lobster roll was, my friend and I made a trip to the Shack before visiting the Doo Wop Museum in Wildwood. While waiting on a bench outside for a table, we met some people from Montreal who were also going to the Museum. We ordered the lobster rolls, but even though I'm not a great... More

I found this place was rated very high on tripadvisor so when I visited Wildwood, I stopped in for and early dinner with 2 friends. We were the first patrons of the night and the restaurant just opened. This is a small, no frills restaurant so don't expect anything big & gaudy. The owner met us and actually joked around... More

This place has very little atmosphere. They could do with an upgrade on the decor but that's not what I was there for. The food was amazing. The lobster roll was lighter and more delicious than any I've ever had. The dill really perked it up and kept the mayo from being too heavy. The owners obviously care very deeply... More

Had no idea what we would find on our first trip to this area, but were very pleased with the casual atmosphere and freshest seafood we have ever had on the east coast! Owner visited our table and even asked if the music was too loud, which it was a little, and he promptly reduced to a more comfortable level.... More
