“Fantastic food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal for four. The service wears first class, attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Food was excellent, high quality and cooked to perfection.

“A SEAFOOD GEM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Decided to visit the crab shack after a long period of time but had to reserve well in advance owing to the size of the building (as the name implies) As fish lovers we appreciated what was on the menu.......but went for the vegetarian option.....the food and service was very good and the price reasonable for the location

“Anniversary Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary on 13th July at the Crab Shack. The food was delicious, the service and friendly attitude of the staff great. There was a shortage of Oysters, but the chef added extras to the platters. We were given two sticks of rock and pink champagne from the staff in view of our special day, which was simply lovely.

“Sea food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Along with the Owl and the Pussycat one of Teignmouths 2 finest dining experiences. As the name suggests the crab is fresh from their own boat . You cannot get better seafood than this. Oh and the rum, figs and cream desert: wow!
