We chose the Crab and Seafood Shack because our 7-year old granddaughter wanted seafood and because of the great Yelp reviews. Yelpers were right. This place is great. If you're looking for fancy, don't bother. If you want to feel like you're pulling up a chair in Joe's kitchen, this is the place for you. Joe (the owner) is a... More

While this was a good lobster roll I would not go out of my to eat here again. My son had the crab cakes which were a nice size and he said they were really good. The calamari appetizer wasn't bad either.

The food was very good but the price and portion did not equate. Taste was great but once I was able to get a good bite it was gone, they should give more fries or even coleslaw to compensate for the size and price.

Joe, the owner, came out and talked with us. Very cordial and sweet man. Excellent seafood that was (as Joe said) swimming this morning. Must be good, they were out of crabs early on a Saturday evening! Homemade tartar and cocktail sauce. Everything was delish, crab soup was my daughter's and my favorite.

The Crab Shack is a small restaurant with eight tables on the northwest corner of Burk Avenue and Park Boulevard in Wildwood. There is street parking. The scallops, while not large, are fresh and sweet. There is very little seasoning because the scallops do not need any seasonings. The diner can taste the freshness of the scallops. I had nine...

First time here, excellent service. Very cozy and casual. I can see why so many locals go here! Make sure to leave plenty of time in your schedule if you go here as it can get packed, but the employees try to get people in as fast as humanly possible. Manager personally went to each table and asked customers if... More

I ordered a takeout order. The lobster rolls were disappointing, dry and unseasoned. The Scallops were OK and the sides were ordinary. For the price it was disappointing. Got it back to the room and found lots of condiments but no Knives, Forks or napkins! The dining room food is also served in take out containers. For the money I... More

Why waste your $ for over priced food ? When you can have fresh cooked food at a great place and price. Go there, stop reading reviews, You'll be happy, you'll family will be happy. Corey

This is a gem of a seafood place hiding in plain sight. You will be surprised that this quiet little take-out actually boasts of the most sumptous crab soup (get the quart, it's worth it!) and garlic crab in town! The service is friendly and quick; the menu is simple and the price is reasonable. My only gripe is that... More
