Thete is no better or fresher fish then they serve at the Crab and Seafood Shack. The atmosphere is fun and the owner takes his fish seriously. Everyone there is friendly and the owner is wonderful to talk to. You have to get to this place.

This place has the freshest seafood I have ever eaten. The portions are huge, fresh and outstandingly delicious. The owner makes sure you are totally satisfied. The chowder was great. We ate there several times, and everyone walked away with smiles on our faces.

Based on the reviews from Trip Advisor, my family and I decided to give the shack a try. I have to say, we were skeptical at first. We drove by a few days before and decided against it, as we were looking for more of an upscale experience (which is nearly impossible to find in Wildwood). By the end of... More

My husband and went to dinner here because of the rave reviews. I have to say the owner is a doll and very accomodating and wants his customers to be happy and satisified. I just cannot get over the fact that you eat on paper plates and take out containers. It started out as a take out establishment but since... More

We had the broiled flounder and scallops - so fresh and delicious. My husband honestly says that the scallops were perfectly done and very tasteful - some of the best he's ever had. Food came out quickly and looked wonderful. We also had the pleasure of meeting Joe, the owner. He explained how he made his delicious crab cakes. We... More

As I approached the location I saw multiple people filing out with bags in their hand. I walked in and saw a very busy restaurant with 10 tables. The portions were hardy, the fish fresh, and the wait staff was very helpful and friendly. Once our appetizer, mussels were served the owner, Joe came to our table when he saw... More

Having grown up down the shore and always having fresh caught seafood to eat, my family and I can tell the difference. We decided to check out this place while on vacation last week and BOY!! Owner Joe was very personable and takes old fashioned pride in his menu. We pretty much ran the gambit on the limited menu. We... More

My husband and I received a recommendation to eat here. We WERE NOT disappointed. The owner came to every table twice to be sure that all his customer's were satisfied. We had the fried one pound seafood combination and the crab chowder. FANTASTIC! When we are in Wildwood next summer we will be eating there more than once. Very happy... More
