RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2016 via mobile

I've been to the Crab Shack a few times now, and I thought I should finally do a review. It's been a perfect experience every time--from the food to the service--and it's just one of the coolest places you can go for dinner. Take time to visit to feed the gators, and get the Captain Crab's Sampler Platter. You won't... More

It was a fun place to visit with good food and excellent service by Joey. You can watch the pelicans over the water or visit the alligators and exotic birds.

We stopped here at the recommendation of our hotel concierge and manager and we are so thrilled we listened! What a great place, from the atmosphere to the service and the food, you can't go wrong here! We had the Sampler Platter For 2, which included snow crab, stone crab, shrimp, crawfish, sausage, potatoes, and corn. A ton of food... More

We picked the Crab Shack based on a photo I saw of the giant crab at the entrance. It looked like fun and didn't disappoint. Food was good, service was good but the big draw is the setting. My only regret was that we couldn't sit outside due to the unusually cold weather that day. Kids will love the gators!

Our family made the roughly 30 minutes scenic drive from Savannah for lunch, and we were glad we did. The menu was full of options, all of which we enjoyed, particularly the crab stew, low country boil, and bbq pork sandwiches. We sat outside on the deck (it was a bit cool but sunny & a nice view of the... More

Description
The Crab Shack isn't just a restaurant, it's a destination! We seat more than 700 guests and offer both indoor and outdoor dining options. Both dining rooms and our outdoor dining deck offer picturesque views of Chimney Creek. Both the young and young-at-heart will enjoy our interactive, educational "Gator Lagoon" which is home to 78 baby alligators; our aviary which is home to more than a dozen rescued exotic birds, and our "Gift Shack". The Crab Shack offers traditional Low Country fare, including fresh streamed and boiled seafood and slow-cooked BBQ. We also have a kid's menu available with burgers, hot dogs, and pizza. The Crab Shack is and always has been a family owned business, and recently began shipping our entrees in ready-to-be-cooked kits through LoCo To Go. Stop by and experience all we have to offer for yourself!
