I'm not really a seafood person, but went here for my other half's mum's birthday meal and the cod and chips was the best i've ever had. I would definitely come back and if you like seafood the choice is brilliant.

We found the Crab Shack through an internet search after we decided on seafood for Sunday lunch. After debating whether the 40 mins drive from Exmouth was worth it we decided to book, and after the meal any inclination of doubt had vanished. The food was excellent. Fresh, tasty and great value for seafood. The lobster was presented flawlessly, with... More

This restaurant is small and very welcoming. We have been a few times and will continue to go back. The atmosphere is always friendly and relaxed. I always gave the crab and it is the best. They catch all their own fish/shell fish. I couldn't recommend the crab shack highly enough. Superb place to dine at.

The other half finally got the hint that I wished to be taken out to lunch so he booked this place (quite last minute, I might add) and we came on a Saturday for 12 noon - 2pm sitting. We were almost the first people in the door and despite this the atmosphere was good. I was very excited to... More

Cute place, nice service and very good crabby food. Rich, unctuous crab soup and a delicious take on the traditional croque monsieur made with ....crab! Lovely.

Visited for light lunch/ snack today and shared a crab sandwich which was the best I had ever tasted ! Although it was very busy we were found a seat outside and made very welcome and even offered blankets as it was quite breezy. Lovely staff, delicious food and beautiful setting.
