“Best seafood in The Wildwoods !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Owned by a retired cop and run by mostly family. Fantastic seafood for very reasonable prices. The place was a pizza joint in the past, so no atmosphere, but food more than makes up for it. Only drawback is very limited seating. A real jem!

“A breath of fresh sea air”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We were looking for a place to have dinner and noted the many good reviews for the Crab and Seafood Shack on Trip Advisor. When we arrived it looked more like a little pizzeria then a seafood restaurant, but were we in for a pleasant surprise. The fish was fresh and tasty and the owner and waitress were such a pleasure to talk with. Yes the feel is that of a take-out place, but it is obvious that the word has gotten out and people enjoy eating in their small dining area. It was obvious to us that the owner cares deeply about the quality and freshness of his product and we wish this place the very best. We will certainly be going back.

“seafood, fresh, simple, delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

The no-frills decor belies the mouth-watering, delicious feast you are about to enjoy. The service was fast and friendly. Every dish on the menu is a winner. The broiled combo platter was fresh, simply-prepared and delicious, as was the chowder. If you love seafood, you will not be disappointed!

“"Seafood and Great Service!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We went to the Crab and Seafood Shack the last weekend of September based on reviews we read. We purchased crabs, the Homemade Crab Chowder, Steamed Shrimp and Shrimp and Linguine in a white garlic wine sauce. The food was excellent - definitely worth going back for. The owners were nice and so helpful offering advice on what to choose. We decided to take out but there is limited seat-in availability as well. Sadly, they were closing for the season the day we visited. They will re-open in May. Next time - and there definitely will be a next time - we will try the Lobster Roll.

“Excellent Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Four of us decided to venture to The Crab and Seafood Shack. Honestly, we were not sure what to expect, especially when we walked in and realized this was more of a take out restaurant than an eat in. However- they do have a couple tables!! We were originally were going to put two tables together, but a party was just getting up to leave. Each of us got something different. At our table we had one Broiled Patter, One Fried Platter, One Pescatore Linguini and One Fried Scallops and Crab Cake. Each and every one of us was super satisfied and full. The owner is super nice. Had a brief conversation about how he gets the fish/seafood fresh every day. You just cannot beat it.
