I visited the Crab Shack earlier in the month for lunch. We were called by in advance of our reservation as there was a cancelation before us and they gave us the option of coming earlier to enjoy a longer lunch. Which we did. Lovely atmosphere and staff know their stuff. The food is simple and delicious. I had mussels... More

Sadly we didn't get to visit Crab Shack as it was fully booked all weekend, day and night. Due to the awful weather the outside wasn't open so we couldn't turn up without booking. We'll be back and have heard nothing but good things! A distinct lack of good seafood in the area so we were desperate to go!

Had a lovely second visit to this top class fish restaurant. All the staff are very friendly and the place has a nice relaxed atmosphere. The food is awesome and the view over the estuary is amazing.

This was an amazing lunch with the family food outstanding service great not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive, the jewel in crown of Teignmouth. Having eaten several times in Wright Bros London which is three times the price and half as good I'd be tempted to do the 360 mile round trip Just go it will be... More

we found this restaurant in Crumbs magazine, knowing my love of sea food my husband suggested a visit, we could't get a table for the day we originally planned, we had no idea it was so popular, luckily they could fit us in today, the Friday. We arrived in a soaking wet teignmouth and walked into the restaurant dripping wet... More

The Crab Shack has become a regular haunt on our trips to South Devon. The food is incredibly fresh and well presented. Make sure you're hungry as the portions as generous. We can highly recommend the local mussels, the lobster and even the fish and chips! It's a seafood lovers dream. Lovely surroundings looking out onto back beach and the... More

This is my third visit and we had an amazing meal. My cousin and I had the whole crab, lovely and fresh, great fries and nice tasty dip, my eldest daughter had whole lemon sole and my youngest daughter had steak (not a seafood lover) all of which was beautifully cooked. If you have enough room for dessert the chocolate... More
