    I was looking forward to dinner here as I've enjoyed previous visits. Last night was different. I was afraid they would be busy but we were seated right away and there were plenty of empty seats on Saturday before mother's day. Our server was very friendly but she constantly forgot items in our order. It took 10 minutes before we received our sides. When she brought the orders to the table she seemed confused on who order what items although we were only a party of 3. Additionally, the food was sub-par. There regularly good she-crab soup tasted like it came out of a jar. Even the French fries had an odd smokey smell and taste. My order of oysters and shrimp included what may have been 1/2 cup of oysters. My bowl of coleslaw was larger than my entire main entrΓ©e. I've always loved this place and was so disappointed. I'm sure the pandemic has had a impact. I'll have to wait some time for them to bounce back before I try again.

    Great food. Great atmosphere. My mom and I sat outside. The view and light breeze off the water was wonderful and relaxing. Mom had a crabcakes sandwich and Cole slaw, I had the fried talipa sandwich and fries. Both of our meals were great. We were there at lunch time, and people were trickling in. The order came quick. I would recommend The Crab Shack for a nice relaxing lunch.

    This place was great! Clean, friendly staff, and awesome food! The views on the water were spectacular especially at night!!! The really amazing part is there was a lot of really great food and it was shockingly very reasonable!!! I loved it. I am already making plans to go back ASAP!!! And I'm a very picky eater. The only thing I was a bit upset about is that they did not offer sweetened tea...other than that, it was wonderful all around!!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Good choice of menu options for the family the shrimp jammers and the crab dip were fantastic. The shack burger was pretty good had decent amount of crab on it. I would recommend this to everyone. The views are nice especially around sunset. They have a bridge you can go out on and fish for $10 a person.
