I ordered the crab platter and for $30 I got snow crab, rock crab and a few blue crab. The dish came with two sides and all of it was delish. The pave can get pretty packed but it seemed like all the the people popped in to eat and get going so no one waited long. The staff is... More

We were just arriving to the area i decided the try out The Crab Shack, decent ratings on Yelp and Zomato. The outside is sorta dive bar-esque, the interior is a wonderful hodge podge of decor and floor heights...watch your step! The food was amazing! From the gatotr bites to the flavorful blue crab cakes. The new england clam chowder... More

From the street this place looks like a pass by. But as soon as you hit the door you can feel the atmosphere. The food was fantastic and plentiful. We ordered a buffalo shrimp appetizer which was ok but not great. But for lunch I ordered the "World's Largest Fish Sandwich" and it lived up to it's name. The fish... More

Now, this is simply a gorgeous place with its own charm (even though too casual for me...)! The service has a local twist - very friendly and well-paced, very attentive, almost like your best buddies are serving you food taking care of your every need! Loved it! At least 5 different types of crabs served! Wine amazingly priced ($25-35 for... More

The Crab Shack is a great “Casual, No Frills Dining Experience” and is located just across the Tampa Bridge in St Petersburg. Casual it is and the seafood dining is out of this world!! It was three years ago that I last ate at the Crab Shack and little has changed except now the food is even better than back... More

Tue and Thu all you can eat snow crab legs. The place is rustic meaning wood benches and table and some chairs not fancy at all but clean. Staff was nice. Crabs were excellent. Cole slaw not so good in my opinion, a little sour did not eat it. Will recommend to my friends I am visiting from Texas and... More

The only place that I can get fried grouper cheeks & there is an elderly woman that makes the Best potato salad! The service is always great unless you get the waitress that doesn't smile. The owner is very nice & sometimes you may see a Tampa Bay Buccaneer in there!
