5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

I had some lobster and mac at a local seafood festival prepared by Crabby Chris. Delicious! My plan is the visit the New Smyrna beach store too.

“Just plain wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We happened upon Crabby Chris's this afternoon and are really glad we did. Very friendly counter service and quick preparation - brought to our picnic table with a smile and Bob Marley wailin' in the background. I had the Cajun pasta while my wife had the crab and shrimp salad roll (served on lettuce instead of the offered hoagie bun). Both were delicious! Just the right amount of spice, loads of flavorful chicken and fresh tomatoes, onions and mushrooms on my penne and plentiful shrimp and crab in a rich sauce for Maggie. Sides of warm black beans and yellow rice were also tasty. We've got the next five months in New Smyrna and we have every intention of working our way through the entire menu!

“Fresh and Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

How lucky are we to have Crabby Chris Crab Shack right here in New Smyrna Beach - just two blocks north of Canal Street on US1. Love, love their shrimp tacos which are loaded with large Florida shrimp and the Caribbean crab cake sandwich which comes with cabbage slaw, grilled pineapple and a sweet chili Thai sauce. Each comes with pita chips (to die for) and are reasonably priced. There are many other sandwiches on the menu for the non-seafood lover so no worries when you bring friends or family. The Crabby Chris team is always friendly and aim to please. Locals love this place and you will too!

“Delicious food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We read a review in a local newspaper on our visit to Daytona Beach in October. We visited there and we were not disappointed. On our first visit my husband had pork tacos and I had a crab cake sandwich and fried pickles. We both fell in love!! On our second visit my husband again had pork tacos and I had lobster and shrimp tacos. Delicious!! Will definitely come back and will tell all my friends.
