The food was so fresh and satisfying. The kids found food to eat too. Small seating and bit of a line but that just shows it's popularity. Would definitely eat here again.

We love Tony's Crab Shack and eat here every chance we get! There are so many delicious fresh seafood choices (plus hot dogs for picky kids) and the atmosphere is friendly, chaotic and beachy. This isn't tourist food (though it is tourist prices). A must!

I feel that this place needs to have more people fixing the food, because orders appeared to be rushed and not properly prepared. Granted there were people out the door, you placed your order and then they brought it to you, but they didn't seem...More

Easy place to get a lunch other than busy. Good simple food, I enjoyed a crab salad. Popular with tourists but with the location and the good food I can see why. I would eat here again for lunch.

Great fresh steamed crab, fish tacos are killer and the best lobster roll I have eaten on the west coast. Small walk up and order with tables inside and out. A small place and anything but fancy with always a line worth standing in. Simple...More

Love the fresh crab even though it's not particularly inexpensive. So fresh. Not like what you buy on the stores.

Quaint, Fresh, Historic Tony's Crab Shack is the best of the best. Don't miss this one. You can actually get fish NOT deep-fried if you chose. Why? Because it's freshly-caught off the Oregon Coast with nothing to hide. A really great lunch spot to enjoy...More

Small restaurant. Arrive early for lunch or you won't get a seat. Indoor seating is almost non existent. If your a large group over 6 it's near impossible to get a seat. Crab, seafood are awesome. We give 4 star and not five because they...More

We finally got a chance to eat here. Typically too busy so we move on. Now we know why. All our meals were top notch. Wonderfully fresh fish tacos.

Wow this place is great! We ate here twice and would've more if we didn't have to leave town! We tried our luck at crabbing off the docks and had we been successful enough they would clean and cook for very cheap. We had a...More

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.

I would like to know if the crabbing at the pier is good in December, using your tips of course?

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.
