Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 September 2017

Crab Shack is a little gem that serves up real quality Seafood from a little, unpretentious storefront. Don,t be fooled, its the best Seafood around, especially the take out counter, Freshest Fish, Real Jumbo Shrimp and Colossal Crab Meat, yummy. not the cheap stuff you get at the Acme, real quality stuff that is worth the price. the attached restaurant is tiny and nondescript, but the grub is tasty. Try the bisque, you'll thank me.

Four of us went today for lunch. The service was very slow which was frustrating, but what was worse was the halibut, corn and french fry meal which was tasteless. My daughter liked her dungeoness crab legs and hush puppies. I just don't think the meal was worth the price and the atmosphere left a lot to be desired.

I'm surprised about the mixed reviews for this restaurant. I went to with my wife and three kids. We ordered oysters, clams, ribs, and chicken. The chicken was crunchy and juicy, the ribs were amazing, and the seafood is to die for. The waiters were friendly and prices are reasonable. Definitely recommend.

If in Brigantine NJ detour to this Seafood Market and Restaurant as you will leave your seafood fix contented and intact.My first visit here was on a cold April several years ago and had a lasting impression ever since as the menu has changed since then but only to add in more menu options therefore reinforcing the menu.As the years have passed we proudly take our place in line as it does get quite busy during peak summer season and have ordered around the menu several times from the crab stuffed Flounder to the Lobster rolls and crab cakes which will make the State of Maryland a runner up for their crab fare.Should it be obvious and a good thing that everyone in town is here or is it just a small town with a limited amount of eateries,no its because everyone is correct about this magnificent seafood diamond its one that you do not want to miss and make sure to look at the Family Plans on the menu priced right and more than enough goodness.
