If you like seafood especially crab,lobster and other shell fish do not leave Teignmouth without eating at this restaurant. The food is delicious and the staff obviously really enjoy their job, this really made a good evening into a memorable one. One tip however, make a reservation as soon as you arrive for your stay as it's incredibly popular.

We were lucky enough to get a table for lunch in the fantastic Crab Shack. It was simply outstanding from start to finish (2.5 hours later!). We recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly 5*

Wonderful food, superb staff and a great atmosphere. I have travelled extensively around our world often to places where seafood is considered the best. Not any more - The Crab Shack gets that accolade. Oh and full of real customers not foodies.

Staff fantastic, very friendly, food delicious. Definitely a must if you like crab and lobster. We had the platter which was quite the show stopper.

We have been holidaying in France since the 1970's, mainly for the seafood and wine. This year we decided to save on the driving and stay in Devon, (we live near Aberdeen). We found the Crab Shack on the web and couldn't wait to try it. We had a reservation for an evening meal and decided on the Platter for... More

We have dined at this restaurant twice now, and on both occasions it has met our now high expectations. The most visit with our extended family, and again nothing was too much trouble for the helpful staff. We have another reservation this week, and yet another next month. You do need to book in advance. Its that popular. They also... More

We had an early evening meal at the Crab Shack with four friends while on holiday at the end of June, one of the hottest evenings of summer; and lunch later in the same week. The Crab Shack is tiny, and unpretentious, very much a well turned out shack, but delightful. Their fish is as fresh as it is possible... More

This really is an excellent place for freshly caught fish beautifully prepared. Failed on our first attempt to eat here due to heavy reservations, so made sure to book a week in advance. My crab sandwich was absolutely delicious and made a very satisfying lunch. My family were very complimentary of both food and service and we certainly intend to... More

What an absolutely delightful restaurant this is. Service couldn't have been better or friendlier and as for the food wow! We'd booked a table inside as we had my daughter and her 8 week old baby with us in a buggy and we had plenty of room even though the inside is pretty small. There were tables outside which looked...

My friend and I had fortunately made a lunch time reservation a week before going to Teignmouth. This is a very popular place so if you want to dine here then make sure you book well in advance. The previous day we had a sandwich from their Deli nearby which was fabulous and filled with fresh white crab meat. The... More
