We re-visited this rebranded establishment having previously reviewed it as Castle on the Green. It is under the same ownership. The food choice is heavily towards fish which isn't actually a problem to us but we would like the choice. The ambiance,inane jokes on the walls and the fact that all serving staff wear t-shirts with an "8" on the back (The first Crab Shack opened in 2008) didn't enamour us to the re-branding. The food we had was well cooked but some flavours are missing.

The view of the castle from this restaurant is amazing at night. The menu has changed since the change of name (it used to be called Castle Green) but it is still good and we came here twice during our holiday. The service was friendly and we really enjoyed our meals.

Arrived about 20 mins before closing, however banner outside says different opening times !

Nearly did not order as waitress was so rude. We are closing order now ! Location great. Food, good but overpriced.

Shame, but guess its the end of the season and waitress was fed up with visitors.

We enjoyed 3 evening meals here in a week, all enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the castle and Grouville Bay. The food and service were exemplary - great variety, well cooked and quickly served. Throughly recommended.

Sat on the balcony overlooking the bay and had a most splendid meal of oysters, lobster and wine. Fine dining as it should be and in a lovely setting. Not the cheapest but certainly worth every penny!
