Though the place looks quite simple (as everything else in the area) the food is really amazing. We stayed for couple of days and had a dinner and lunch next day at this place. The food was really good. The shack crab salad with mango dressing is now my favorite.

Had early dinner. Yummy baskets of fried shrimp, flounder, soft crabs ( and other stuff). Served with delicious hush puppies, French fries, cole slaw. Had 3 soft shells in my basket, and they were gutted of that yellow stuff that I dislike. Perfectly fried!! Refill on soda and ice tea. Also had nice beer selection. Will return.

This was probably the first trip we have ever taken where we relied on on-line reviews to decide every main meal. The Crab Shack had excellent reviews and when we arrived it was obvious why. Our waiter, Johnny, was friendly, knew his stuff and did an excellent job. The food was outstanding and everyone there deserves a big "Thank you" for this excellent experience. The clam chowder was the best we had ever had and that is saying something. It's not fancy but it's great.

I wasn't sure if this was just another fried shrimp/crab joint, so I was pleasantly surprised to find many choices of seafood and fish prepared broiled and blackened. I had soft crabs, blackened and they were wonderful. It's fun, you can sit out on the deck or inside the building for the screen building. Would love to return

A real good lunch with award winning clam chowder and good soft crab. Great stuff! Indoor and outdoor seating.
