Celebrated my Birthday at The Crab Shack and it was delicious! Alaskan King crab legs and snow crab legs were the best I've ever had! Our waitress, Ida, was amazing! Ask for her! 👍

This place is great! You can get a fantastic dinner and feeds some gators. Eating inside is just being surrounded by screens. It's still basically an open air restaurant. The service is fantastic and I would definitely recommend the crawfish.More

Description
The Crab Shack isn't just a restaurant, it's a destination! We seat more than 700 guests and offer both indoor and outdoor dining options. Both dining rooms and our outdoor dining deck offer picturesque views of Chimney Creek. Both the young and young-at-heart will enjoy our interactive, educational "Gator Lagoon" which is home to 78 baby alligators; our aviary which is home to more than a dozen rescued exotic birds, and our "Gift Shack". The Crab Shack offers traditional Low Country fare, including fresh streamed and boiled seafood and slow-cooked BBQ. We also have a kid's menu available with burgers, hot dogs, and pizza. The Crab Shack is and always has been a family owned business, and recently began shipping our entrees in ready-to-be-cooked kits through LoCo To Go. Stop by and experience all we have to offer for yourself!
