Was in the mood for seafood so I found this restaurant. Was about to order fish when I saw Scallops on the menu. Not small Bay Scallops, but large Scallops. I ordered them blackened with fries and coleslaw. Turned out to be an excellent choice! The Scallops were perfectly cooked (very tender) and the blackened coating tasted good.

We always enjoy Crab's for a great Friday night dinner. The shrimp bucket is good. Grilled shrimp are very tasty! The oyster Po boy is a treat!! This is a wonderful place for seafood in central Mississippi!

My parents and I met and had a variety of items. The gumbo and crab claws were great starters and we had a combo bucket of crab legs, grilled oysters and oysters Rockefeller. The portions are plenty and the food is great and reasonably priced! We will be going back!

Have been going here for 6+ years. Consistent good quality for the amount of food compared to price. Redfish cakes are awesome & this is the only place we can get king crab around here for a reasonable price. Its frozen, not fresh but good quality. Best boiled shrimp & fresh fish.

Where do I start? We had fried shrimp poboy amd catfish platter. The shrimp were frozen not fresh but frozen and had a very powerful lemon taste/ more like grocery store frozen shrimp. The catfish tasted the same, they were nuggets and breaded way too thick. The ketchup had a weird taste too. Needless to say, I will NEVER go... More

My family travelled to Ridgeland for a quick getaway. We found this little spot to eat. I am so glad we did. The food was very good; well worth the 20-25 minute wait.

Found this little spot and had been craving some boiled crab legs. They were fantastic and filled me up! My boyfriend got boiled shrimp and they were good size as well! The drinks were good as well. Will be returning

We have eaten here many many times over the past three years we have lived in the area. We have never gotten a bad meal, always good service and reasonably to good price on all of our selections. Just last week they had all you can eat grouper, but after one plate I was FULL.

We have dined at Crab's Seafood Shack many times in the last decade and have never had a bad experience. We usually try to sit in the bar area if possible (TVs). The Service is always friendly, but the wait between ordering and getting your meal can seem long at times (hence the TVs) so we always ask for Comeback... More

I have to tell you, this place is my current favorite. Great fresh fish in ample portions at a reasonable price is really hard to find these days. I love the lunch specials Monday thru Friday ESPECIALLY the all you can eat grouper special served with salad, fries, rice and a lemon. It is very reasonably priced and the fish... More
