Great ambience, great service, but it was the sea food that knocked it out of the park. So fresh I can't find any fault.

Outstandingly good in every respect. Go here if even vaguely possible. Food, service, ambience, view, ethical policy; it has it all.

Known by locals as the best place for freshly caught gorgeous seafood and it never disappoints. As well as superb food the setting overlooking the estuary and beach is spot on and the staff are friendly and nothing feels rushed.

Traveling down to Devon for the week "The Crab Shack" was one place we just had to visit. So we came down one lunch time to check the place out and booked a table for later that night. The place itself is quite small which in my book a good thing (don't think bigger is better and spoil a cozy... More

When we first saw the name Crab Shack we thought it was a cheerfully simple crab sandwich cafe. We are big fans of crab sandwiches, so that was fine. But we were astonished to find that it's a fine seafood restaurant tucked on the tiny quayside where, even more amazingly, all crabs and so lobsters are caught by the owners... More

We were so looking forward to our lunch at the Crab shack - it was a gift for my husband from me for his birthday; the lobster platter sounded right up our street as my husband used work in the lobster and seafood business in Massachusetts USA and it had been years since we'd had fresh lobster. I will start... More

Amanda S, Owner at Crab Shack on the beach, responded to this review

I am sorry you were disappointed with your meal at the Crab Shack, whilst we cannot please everyone its always a shame when someone reviews us in such a personal manner. I would just like to point out that our oysters are always opened fresh for each platter and never would have been opened for any longer than 5 minutes.... More
