Went here on a Friday lunch, not many other diners. The restaurant has a casual feel which we like. All three of us had fish and chips which we all thought was excellent. Service was cool but efficient. Would definitely return.

We loved our dining experience at the crabshack. We went there expecting a vast crab menu and this would be our reason for giving 4 stars. The food was as fresh as can be but not a great choice of crab. Nice views too

Crab Shack is definitely a great place for friends or family friendly meal. The menu is good, the food is good and the service is ok. I didn't rate it 5 stars because I think it could do with a refurbishing, better service & overall...More

Ridiculously early. Think old people's home, like to shift everyone out by 9pm so don't bother booking after 8.

You can book online or ring... however as it's extremely popular on certain nights.... there is no guarantee of a table when you walk in if you don't book... book to avoid disappointment
