We had eaten here repeatedly during our vacation last year. The stuffed flounder and crab cakes were fresh and flavorful, the lobster rolls (on other peoples plates) looked wonderful. The crab cakes were so great we ordered a few dozen and froze them to take home. What a letdown, no wonder there was no line. We now had plastic cups... More

Our family ordered from the crab shack and we picked up our order and enjoyed dinner at our beach house. Most of us got the lobster bake which was outstanding and came with a 1lb lobster. Great service. We will order dinner from here everytime we're in Brigantine!!!

My wife and I had a very nice lunch at this small, simple shellfish and seafood restaurant that also has a seafood market. Everything is obviously very fresh and our waitress was very attentive and helpful. An enjoyable eating experience to be returned to many times!!!

Great take out restaurant for many kinds of fish dishes. I had a crab sandwich. It was great! Great for families not wanting to go out to a restaurant. Take it and go!

We went mid afternoon for a late lunch and couldn't be happier with the ambiance, pleasant server (Kim), the men behind the seafood counter and the fantastically fresh seafood! We ordered the special of the day which included 2 Maine lobsters that were spectacular, 6 plump/juicy shrimp and 2 ears of corn....all cooked to perfection for $35.00! I would recommend... More

We picked this place because of location to where we were staying. We ordered take out and the food tasted good but it was very greasy.

Everything we ordered was great. I especially loved the crabcakes. We ate there 3 nights out of the 7 we were there. My husband ordered... More
