“Favorite seafood place in Wildwood”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We found this restaurant a couple of years ago. It's the only place we go for seafood, while we are in Wildwood, for vacation. The crab chowder is AMAZING! I have only had the white, it's too good to stray from! The lobster rolls are good. Love the fried seafood platter! Joe and his staff are very accomodating! Will go back again next year!

“Great place!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We went there tonight with a party of eight (four adults and four children). We were looking for authentic and unpretencious seafood and got just that at the Crab and Seafood Shack. The kids split two orders of fried flounder while the adults had lobster rolls and clams. The owner Joe and the entire staff were very friendly and helpful. You can BYOB also! We will definitely be back before we head home.

“Fresh Food & Friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Very friendly staff. Go for the broiled seafood platter! No liquor license, but BYOB. It is not on the main drag which is nice. We went at 6pm & were able to be seated without a problem. Was filling up as we left - closer to 7 pm enjoy!

We had a delicious meal at the Crab and Seafood Shack. The owner came and checked on our table. The food was great. The menu had a wide variety of seafood options. Great experience. I would definitely go back.

“Hands down...best crab chowder I've ever had!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We went here on our last dinner out on our vacation. It was the seafood I was looking for. Unlike the rest of the restaurants in wildwood this place is not a tourist trap. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. The owner made the rounds to each table to check in. The waitress was friendly and attentive. They catered to my sisters gluten allergy. Small place to sit down in, but worth the wait. You can take out as well. I had the lobster roll. Cold lobster, no mayo, but had a dill dressing on a garlic bread roll. Different and delicious. Crab chowder was available cream based or tomato based. Both were delicious. Broiled sea scallops were local and worth a try.
