Joe, the head chef, is a very personable and sociable individual that cooks his meals fresh with pride. Refuses to use frozen seafood because it takes away the wonderful taste that it should leave in your mouth. I know this because I spent about 15 minutes speaking with him while dining at this venue. If you're in Wildwood, you MUST come here for the amazing food and service!

I am a big fan of traveler reviews..and the reviews for this restaurant were right on target! We headed over to the Crab and Seafood shack one evening based on what I read on trip advisor. It definitely reminded me of a pizza shop, very plain nothing fancy, but we had some of the best seafood we have ever eaten. They only have a handful of tables available for sit down...it seemed that this restaurant is a favorite of the locals for take out..which again tells me they must be doing something right! Everything was fresh, hot and reasonably priced! The staff was wonderful and very friendly! The gentleman that owns the restaurant spoke with us and told us that he gets everything fresh every morning for that day. If you are in Wildwood and love seafood, do not pass this one up!

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!

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.
