“A Gem !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We dined here for the first time last week, we were lucky as we handn't booked but there was a cancellation so we were able to be seated !What a marvellous little place .Ruth and the young waiter were charming and greeted us at the door and took our coats. The atmosphere was lovely and nibbles were brought straightaway whilst we perused the menu.We both chose dressed crab which was excellent ,the establishment has their own fishing vessel so you can be sure the seafood is very fresh ,it was fantastic,we shall definitely be going back each time we visit the area.

“Sun, seafood and superb service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Visited for lunch on a rare sunny day in March, we sat outside on the decked terrace and indulged in the back beach atmosphere. The menu was varied and we both enjoyed the crab soup and sandwich combo, accompanied by a chilled bottle of Sauvignon. The staff were welcoming, attentive, charming and although busy took time to share a conversation. The food was fresh, delicious, well presented and certainly recommended. Inside the restaurant is tastefully quirky not letting you forget that you are by the sea-side, take time to 'soak up the atmosphere' of the Crab Shack and if like us you visit when the sun is shining sit outside, its a great site for 'people watching', what better way to spend an afternoon.

“SEAFOOD AT ITS BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

A friend invited me to the Crab Shack as she knows I love seafood, and I ate oysters au natural to begin with - fabulous. I was informed by the staff that they fish every morning when open Nr Alderney so their fish is always fresh.

I had been looking for oysters for a while as so many places no longer serve them. They were fantastic!

Then on to the mussels, another treat. It was difficult to choose as the Menu offered such a super variety.

The wine too was perfect.

Only thing - it was chilly!

Lately I tried to book for February but they are closed until March, no doubt due to the winter weather. I look forward to them re-opening and will be down swiftly to sample more of their enticing offerings.
