Visited with my husband on Saturday for lunch and once again it was totally outstanding. We share scallops to begin with along with garlic bread which is to die for . I then had monkfish with a slightly curried cous cous with chickpeas- fantastic . My husband had octopus with a bean salad which he assured me was brilliant. We... More

We had not booked a table, so sat at the bar, which was actually fab because we had one of the best informal lunches of all time. My partner and I ate mussels, crab claws, frites and a bottle of Muscadet. It really ended up being rather special and the staff were so friendly. I will definitely be returning with... More

First, the staff could not have been friendlier or more attentive. Great service. Second, the oysters were delicious and so briskly fresh. Amazing. Unfortunately, the rest of the meal was so so. Maybe I didnt order the right dishes. The scallops and anchovies were just ok as were the crab claws. Regardless, their service and oysters were quite excellent.

Something a bit different for the seafood lover, with a nice range of menu, including crab. I have been here half a dozen times and never had a bad meal, only downside is that the place is a bit small and can feel cramped, and can get very warm in the summer, or very cold if you have a table...

First time I've been here since it opened, for some reason we always ended up elsewhere, probably due to how busy you were! What can I say, since the tones of Bowie hit our ears on entering and the smell of Queenies getting fried we knew it'd be a treat. We had mussels and squid to start then sole and... More

We went to the Crabshakk as a group of 9 for a pre concert meal. We had read the reviews and as we are all seafood lovers we were not disappointed. The main menu is great but when the specials board was brought out it took it to another level Highlights- Monkfish cheek scampi, the crab claws, Charred octopus and... More

Buzzing atmosphere; well-prepared fresh seafood. Plenty of choices from the printed & specials menus. Crowded as this is a small establishment, but attentive service from pleasant staff.

All in all food was delicious, however very pricey for the portion size you get! Scallops and lobster were excellent. Cannot fault staff.
