Worth the trip. More than enough to eat. Looks a bit scary from the outside, but inside, it's a great place.

Any time I want great fresh seafood we go to Crab Shack Restaurant, my daughter love their fresh oysters and I love the whole fried Chilean Sea Bass and seafood platter.

We had a group of 7 but they were very accommodating, we were able to visit with family, lots of choices for all and the food was very good. The combo platter with catfish needed to have a note that it is a full fish (not de-boned), otherwise, crab legs and stuffed shrimp were very good. Maryland crab cake was... More

We have been coming here every year since our children were little. We still make the trip over on vacation every year with our children, now all grown. Great food and fast, friendly service consistently year after year. Thanks for the memories!

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
