In fairness, we were promptly seated and the service was good. The problem was the food. We were charged around $35 per person for what could be described as a mediocre meal. The highlights were the pitcher of beer and the french fries that came with my Maryland-style crabcakes. If a clean dining room is also important to you, this... More

A majority of the dishes are fried. Orders come with cole slaw (heavy on mayo) and fries (stringy and greasy). Service is good, not much of a wait. Located next to a busy "highway."

This is a local St. Pete classic dive bar frequented by tourists and regulars. Rode past many times when I lived here and glad I gave it a try while back on business in the area. Not a fancy craft beer pub by any means: all taps were national standards; a no-frills drinking place. Yes the crabs are the food... More

After dropping in for a quick dinner after a late flight, we just wanted good food. The food was good but the service wasn't so much.

I really enjoyed my smoked mullet and def will be going back for more. But, for heaven's sake, PLEASE put some pillows or something soft on the hard benches. They are a nightmare with someone with back issues.

Great place for reasonably priced crab legs. There may be a wait being it's not the largest establishment but you will get friendly service and a great meal. There is a full bar so be sure to hydrate. This is a family favorite that we frequent.

Have been to St. Petersburg a few times, and we always go to the crab shack when we are there. They have some of the best seafood I have ever had. I had a platter with crab legs, white fish, and scallops. Wonderful dinner. Can't wait until my next visit.
