Went to the crab shack with a couple of friends to celebrate a belated birthday, we arrived early but the staff laid the table very quickly for us, the meals we choose were all very tasty, the staff were very attentive, the wine flowed, the sun shone on the twinkling sea, we finished our day sat almost on the beach,...

...excellently produced, wonderfully presented and eloquently served seafood. Within a chilled out, relaxed atmosphere a mere skimming stone away from the waters edge. Thank you for such a memorable feast.... we'll be back

This little restaurant on the beach serving Crab caught on their own boat is one of our favourite eating places. I hate sharing it with you because we really want to protect it for our own enjoyment , but Amanda and the team deserve to have the establishment become the success it has because of all their hard work over...

I am not a seafood fan, or so I thought until I visited the Crab Shack. I though I would be brave and order something I would not even consider normally. Excellent advice from the staff meant that I ordered a spider crab salad as it was sweeter than normal crab. I was prepared to struggle through it but it... More

We came across this place by accident after visiting another restaurant in Teignmouth. Being sort of local (Torquay) we were surprised at how such a popular restaurant could have escaped our attention (we eat out quite a bit). We were able to book an outside table on a Friday evening in July and were extremely pleased when we got there... More

This restaurant is simply the best in fresh crab as well as seafood and fresh fish. Hard to get a reservation so we managed to get a table after the lunchtime rush at 3pm and we were pleased we waited!

The Crab Shack is situated on the back beach at Teignmouth with stunning views of the Teign estuary. On the night we went the tide was in and the sun was shining, it was a beautiful evening. The staff were very welcoming and the food was something that any Michelin chef would be proud of. I had a pint of... More

Visited Teingmouth recently and found the jewel of Devon. The food was so fresh the local fisherman bought it in off his boat. Some long haired local in shorts and T-shirt, just as you picture a fisherman in your head. After being lucky to get a table we ordered the sea food platter( do not have breakfast if your going...
