Was tired of eating in restaurants on our road trip and so was happy to stop by here for Take Out clam chowder. Local owner is super friendly. Killed me not to stay for the fresh crab. I could smell the garlic butter!

Soup [clam chowder] & salad was rather ordinary but the crab cake was fabulous. Prices seem a little expensive. Staff were friendly.

Saw great reviews about Tony's Crab Shack so thought we would try it. When we pulled up I couldn't help the emphasis on "shack"... this place is literally a shack on a "boardwalk" area in Bandon. The menu is super simple and very reasonably priced....More

Owner Tony Roszkowski started in 1989 cooking crab outside the tackle shop he'd just bought and the business grew from there. Over the years, the menu evolved from cold crab cocktail and oysters to Bandon's famous crab sandwich, grilled halibut, smoked salmon alfredo, cioppino, fish...More

I always love going to Tony's for chowder. Seating is limited but there is an outdoor covered area and oyster Bar when the weather is good.

Trust me on the Lobster roll. Best thing I've eaten in 5 years. Neat location in a harbor in Bandon. I would drive 6 hours back here again only for the purpose of getting another lobster roll.

There are always people on the pier catching their own crabs, Tony's will cook them for you if you bring the crabs to them.

We were there in June and their were crab pots everywhere in the harbor even though winter is typical crabbing season. Because the crabbing is doing so well even out of season I would say that December has the ability to be... More

The bay is not the main view here... The view is the street that takes ya to the south Jetty. Foot traffic to and from business in the area. NOT MUCH TO SEE other than people when this area is busy. Quiet otherwise.
