“It IS a Shack; great food!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Just west of the Gandy Bridge, a tiny shack, REALLY! Best fried clam strips I've ever had! Coconut shrimp are ok, boiled peel n eat shrimp good, clam chowder varies from so-so to excellent depending on the day; full bar; always crowded; extremely casual. Menu ranges from $7 to $25, most being about $7 for lunch or $15 for supper. Big helpings. Good cole slaw but icky potato salad. Look for daily specials on board. Tuesdays are all you can eat clam strips for good price. Fresh fish, crabs, etc.

“Quick bite good for the money”
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”
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”
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!
