I can tell you that I was not impressed with the service or the management. We went with 15 folks for a noon-time party. We arrived at 1230pm and we ordered food that took 2 hours to get to us. The server dropped the 2nd tray and half of us had to wait another 45 min for our food. When it arrived, one of the ladies did not get her food and had to wait another 15 min. When the bills came, some people had them reduced while others did not. The lady that waited the longest was threatened with a call to the police if she did not pay full price. We finally got out of there at 430pm. We were not impressed and will not return.
New owners! Pet friendly! Great cooks, servers and owners! Love the juicy, flavorful burgers, huge clam strips, sweet coleslaw, fresh shrimp and awesome views! The bands are fair, really just a nice touch to the atmosphere. I'm so happy they re-opened, it was such a huge shame to lose this place a couple years ago. The old owners were less than friendly, I don't miss them! Blessings!
My husband and I really enjoyed the Crab Shack! My favorite thing about this place is the atmosphere! It's like being in the Caribbean! The colors and music make you feel like you're on vacation. The service is fantastic and the food is great! All around great place to relax and enjoy the view!! We will visit often!!!

Very casual tiki bar that still has a family friendly atmosphere.
Relax by the water under the stars, have a few beers, enjoy some great music, and eat. Our Friday night wait for a table for two at 8pm was 45 minutes. It was during our wait that I started wishing I had brought some mosquitto spray. Once seated it took over 15 minutes before anyone showed up to take our drink order. But, since a great blues and oldies band was playing we didn't mind. The prices were reasonable and the serving sizes average. The large menu seemed like it would please everyone with choices from burgers, salads, and wraps to salmon, oysters, shrimp, and chicken. My husband had the scallops and buffalo shrimp and raved about both. My grilled shrimp and onion rings were cooked perfectly.
It was a pretty hot summer night so the outdoor scenery had me using a paper plate as a fan. They did have ceiling fans, but we weren't feeling the breeze.
While the heat and poor service were a downer, all the positives more than made up for it. The band was great, I can't say enough about them. If you want to talk and chat then maybe this isn't the place for you as the music was on the loud side. Lots of people were dancing and a few sing alongs took place. Everyone was just really friendly. The tiki bar atmosphere and decorations set the tone for a relaxing night. We are looking forward to taking our out of town guests to this little jem. We both agreed that we'd warn them before hand that the service might be lacking. Still, we have already decided that we'll be back... long wait and all. It was a great end to a long and stressful week.
