This place is unique and sprawling. They are slammed with business, but can handle a crowd. We didn't have to wait and got a table by the water. It is worth a visit if you are in Savannah.More

We plan on visiting on April 11. Are you before or after Ft. Pulaski coming onto the island? We are trying to decide on lunch or dinner here. We plan to go to Tybee around lunch time and tour the fort.

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!
