Great take-out

I have been looking for a good Lobster roll so this is why I went here. Success! Excellent lobster roll perfectly seasoned and not made with mayo. But the actual roll was disappointing- I think it was a hot dog roll. I thought the portion size was good. $17 for takeout roll seemed pricey. I noticed... read more

Crabs and shrimp to go, very good and fair pricing. We went there and ordered. They cleaned them and they were tasty. A little smaller that expected but good.

Seafood combination platter was excellent: fresh, well prepared and ready for takeout when promised. Prices were reasonable. I'll definitely return on my next visit to WW

We usually order from Ricks, but wanted to try this place out. The only negative is they ran out of crabs by 4pm. We ordered the clams and flounder. Both were very good. The customer service was also good. The owner was very nice. A great alternative to Ricks.

Very nice place. You will find that seafood shack a bit small, there is maybe 10 tables, but the food is delicious. Dont leave if you didnot try the Crabs cake, soup and lobster roll ! Plan a jogging session after, there is lot of oil and frying. Joe was taking care of the guest. You feel that they want... More

The food is very fresh and that is exactly what you want when you come to the shore. We had the flounder broiled with a baked potato, delicious crab chowder, a couple of fried combo orders with tasty cole slaw and corn on the cob on the side. All four of us were happy and full because the portions were... More

After visiting Wildwood a few times we were looking for something new. We visited this gem of a place on a warm Saturday night in August. Takeout was offered but we decided to wait for a table because we wanted to eat the food as soon as it was ready. The restaurant is small and has the feel of a... More

My wife and I took advantage of a beautiful day to take the Sightseer Dolphin Cruise last week. In reading about the cruise, we saw that the Crab and Seafood Shack was also getting high marks on Trip Advisor. We read many of the reviews, mostly praising the food and a few dissatisfied with the waiting time. Our experience was... More

We hit C&S every time we are in Wildwood! Family owned and run business, customer friendly, great staff! Fresh and Delicious Seafood! Don't forget the Crab Chowder, it's the best!
