We had our dogs with us and we decided on sitting on the restaurant's front porch. The wait staff was attentive even though we were "off the beaten path" from the rest of the restaurant. We were impressed with the food and the quality of service. Prices are a little high but not unreasonable.

You can sum this place up as "pretty good." The food, atmosphere, and service was all pretty good-- not terrible but not astounding either.

Our food was served cold. I think because it was reheated. Our daughter made a spill and we were on our own to clean it our selves while the staff watched from a safe distance. we used all the napkins on the table and they never offered me another soda. Our server never told us his name.

Came to the crab shack for the first time, on a Saturday night. We were greeted by the very pleasant hostess, Brittany. She was super friendly and helpful. Place was busy but didn't feel like it at the table. Louis was our server and was bursting with personality, which added to our already awesome experience. He answered all of our questions with great knowledge of the menu and suggested an amazing dessert. ( go for the red velvet cheesecake!). Throughout the meal, we noticed that the staff was always moving and productive. Louis was busy yet still very attentive and Brittany was busting her butt cleaning tables! Always great to have such a great experience when in the biz :) we are locals and will deffinantly be back and recommend! Well done Crab Shack!
