The Crab Shack on Gandy isn't fine dining, but it's some of the finest seafood you can get in the Tampa Bay area. Let's be clear that by "fine" I mean fresh and awesome. You're not going to find plates stacked high with microgreens or decorated with sauce. What you will find is amazing seafood spread (eat it with the saltines, so good), fresh blue crabs (give yourself at least an hour to go at these babies), and fresh, salty oysters. It's been the same for the past couple of decades and it's packed every weekend for a reason. Dress down and be ready to get messy if you want to work for your crab and shrimp.

I have been going to this NEW place since it opened. If you like GREAT Music Entertainment and GOOD food then this is it. They have GREAT bartenders ( Bridget & Megan ). Plenty of Craft beers on tap. My favorite is Jai Alai. Also the food is a mix of southern fare with a Distinctively Elegant Flare. To put it simple its just a AWESOME place to be when not working!
Forever this has been the best for fresh shrimp dinners anywhere in St Pete. Family owned, and the owner regularly stops at tables and checks how things are. Wednesday night's all you can eat shrimp is awesome, not frozen like Red Lobster, but fresh shrimp. Thank you for being there year after year with great food at a great price.
