Upon arriving the hostess greeted us with her bare belly hanging over her jeans. The prices seemed quite a bit higher since we last visited years ago. The salad was so chopped I had problems getting it on my fork. The lobster bisque had lobster meat in it but also had a strange taste. The linguini... read more

My hubby noticed the Crabshack the last time he shopped for fish at Nautical Mile. The calamari appetizer was hot and fresh. It required a shot of salt and the red sauce was "sweet." We prefer a sauce with "kick." I ordered the crab cakes entree for $19.00. I told my husband that if the Crabshack got the crab cakes... More

We're sorry you didn't enjoy those crab cakes more. We take great pride in our fresh ingredients and our original recipes, and I wish that's the impression you had when you visited. If the crab cakes weren't to your taste, we have plenty of other dishes we'd love to recommend next time around -- I'm sure you'd enjoy them much... More

This is more like a diner masquerading as a seafood restaurant. I had the salmon -- I hate to say this, but I sense it was frozen, not fresh fish. Seasonings on the fish were fine. The corn on the cob was waterlogged -- must've been sitting in a pot for 3 days. Cole slaw is garden variety mass produced... More

Yes, other reviewers are correct about some things. The restaurant itself is small, service is ok, food is ok. But the King crab legs are delicious!!

The place is all remodeled after super storm sandy and is done very well with seating and rest room accommodations. The menus was good and so was the pricing, but the portions were small And the food was ok. The servers were good humored, attentive polite and efficient. There was more than ample parking.
