This is an interesting place. A few things will stand out if you visit. As others have said, it is a smaller local seafood eatery, complete with a very involved owner. For most people, that is a plus. The food was good, fresh, prepared to order and again, the owner is ever present to pay attention to the quality of... More

The food is superb. Classic beach fair. Have the steamed clams, you will not regret it. The fried calamari was great, not sure what spice mixture he puts on there, but is really good. NOT fine dining so please don't expect it.

Come here if you enjoy delicious seafood and don't want a stuffy place with white tablecloths. This family-run restaurant serves dinners in take-out styrofoam containers. It could be served on paper plates because you won't have anything left to take home. Crab chowder is fantastic. My family loved it! We don't miss it when we vacation in the crest.

We eat at or from the Crab and Seafood shack on a regular basis. We find the food to always be fresh, not frozen and moderately priced. My husband prefers the Seafood Combo and I prefer the Fried Shrimp. the husband and wife owners work their own business and make sure you are happy with food and service. Not a... More

When I noticed trip advisor had the crab and seafood shack as a top restaurant, it peeked my interest. I'm glad I don't put much faith in a rare negative review. I'm even happier that I decided to try it out because I wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was even better. The owner was working in... More

This is the second time my family and I visited the Crab and Seafood Shack. We found it last year from TripAdvisor and we're so glad we did! The wait is not that long for such excellent food. I ordered the broiled shrimp and scallops with baked potato and cole slaw The seafood was amazing and the cole slaw was... More

I was a bit shocked when I first saw the price tag for the ambiance of the restaurant, but it was worth it. We got the little necks clams that were awesome. We ordered 12, just to try, but we should have ordered 50! The Pescatone & linguine in a white wine sauce is fabulous! Please, do not leave the... More

The food brings you here not the ambiance. Crab chowder is incredible! Everything was excellent down to the corn with the jersey shore combo! Go and enjoy!

I don't know what's ticked off those other 2 reviewers from 2 days ago, probably competition spies?? I came here for the first time tonight I've been coming to Wildwood almost every year for many years and tried this Seafood restaurant for the first time tonight. The other reviewer said the Fried Flounder was too small? No, I received 2... More
