We literally made a u-turn and stopped at this roadside Crab Shop. Very clean, neat, fresh crab. There were people coming in and out for fresh crab. Sandwich we ordered was delicious. A must stop even if you are going the wrong way. .. make a u-turn.

We visit Easton/St. Michael frequently and are happy to finally find a nice fish market. Friendly service, clean store and great tasting crabs, shrimps and corn. We got the #2 male. They were sweet and meaty. Call ahead so you don't have to wait. You won't miss the bright yellow building. The hours were slightly different than advertised so call... More

When I told me boss I was going to the Eastern Shore of Maryland he insisted that I stop at the Crab Shack on my way back. He said it's a little shack but with the bright yellow color of the restaurant, it was impossible to miss. The service was extremely friendly and the the prices were good too. My... More

Saw their sign for 2 dozen males for $40, so picked some up steamed on the way back home for 1:45 trip to eat them at home. Quick service, I think there were more than 2 dozen crabs, too. Clerk said they might run a little light, but we felt that they were fine, & tasty.

They have good crabs and quick service. If you are traveling on Rt 50 and don't want to exit off your path then check out the Crab Shack, it's a quick in and out. Just one or two small tables, it's the kind of place you pop in and get your crabs to go. The steamed shrimp was delicious.

I love this place....The seasoning is to die for. Sometimes the crabs are not very full or large for number 1's, but again the seasoning is sooooo good. We got a half of bushel last Friday and enjoyed the crabs. Crabs were on the smaller side, but full and sweet. The owner is very friendly and so are his help.... More

We popped in for some gorgeous blue crabs on our way back to NY… Many people ask: "How do you know how to eat MD crabs if you're from up north?" Well, we get them up here too- perhaps not in such great abundance though! I love them, and they remind me of my Dad coming back with crabs after... More

I called the Crab Shack and asked them to ship a bushel of crabs out to Vail, Co. They all were good size #1's and delicious ! My guests and I 'pretended' we were sitting by the Bay on a sunny afternoon ( in the mountains ) The crabs and service were great.
