Cold Bear and good fresh Oysters...Friendly place on Gandy, Great early Bird Specials,Good variety and You must have the Fried Oysters. Good Guy named Tyrone is a manager.



The Crab Shack on Gandy isn't ...

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.



A pleasant surprise

This is definitely a "shack" but dispite its outside appearence the food here is exteremly good! The crab cakes are melt in your mouth good! The salads are light and crispy. The stew cabbage is to die for. And this is the only place to go to for fresh, tasty seafood!

Depends on your taste

There's a difference between laid back casual and a dump. This place is a dump. Walk in and be greeted by the dreaded horrid fish smell of aging seafood (or was it the low life patrons at the bar) No, it was the food. Fish dip was the worst I've had and I've tried it everywhere. Grouper sandwiches, what a laugh, oh Frenchy's would be appalled. Beer served in 1970 glasses and not a decent choice to be found. I guess if you're a ""i just got off my boat after fishing off Gandy and drank my last can of budweiser"" this place might be for you, others not so much. Good place to ""trap unsuspecting tourists though.

Honestly, these pasty brown corn meal covered cow pies are the worst by far and that's saying alot when it comes to Florida crab cakes which all Marylanders are forever warned about. This is what happens when you let your guard down for a second. My girlfriend and I left the 'fake frozen cakes"" on the plate where we found'em. The waitress felt she was off the hook because she nad warned us the steamed crabs were lousy. I guess everything is lousy and you're on your own if you go to this dump! DPS
