“Quick bite good for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Good but nothing special. Busy so get their early. Good for the money. Clean and friendly crew. Near a very busy street but that is where most of the traffic there is from. Neighborhood restaurant.

“Fresh fish unusual decor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Had grilled Mahi Mahi which was delicious, fresh but a tad over cooked. Salad was iceberg lettuce and a very good blue cheese dressing. Fish sandwich broiled was fresh and fries were good. We went on a Sunday and it opens at 1. There was a line at the door and the restaurant was full in 30 minutes. One person at our table ordered frog legs and there was a good portion of lightly Coated fried legs. The fish and chips was a large portion and also very good.

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

After boating all day we happened to stumble upon the Crab Shack Restaurant. They have great food! It's not anything fancy (has picnic tables and benches), but it's a great place to take your family and friends. The staff was very pleasant and we really enjoyed our meals. Definitely have to go back!

“Great little rustic touch of Florida with great seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

With a very friendly staff (Thanks, Cammie for your ever present smile & helpfulness), very reasonable prices, and a touch of rustic Florida that draws many locals here, the Crab Shack is our favorite seafood hangout. I LOVE their fried oysters! Some of the recipes, i.e. their clam chowder & the spicy seafood Creole soup are treasured originals for the restaurant that are not shared, but are WONDERFUL! Try it..I think you will like it!

“Great Local Dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I was here on business for two days and actually ate here twice for dinner. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Dana and Tyrone took great care of me and everyone at the bar. I had oysters on the halfshell, alaskan crab legs, buffalo oyters and blue crabs. I was a little rusty on my blue crab opening skills and Tyrone is the pro. I will definitly be back!
