It is a little restaurant with a sea food! In the centre, good service, menu with fresh fish and sea food, prepared on a simple way and on time. Very good value for money

As you've probably read on other reviews, you need a reservation or you have to get to Crabshakk early. We had no problem getting a table a little after five. We shared a bunch of appetizers and a dessert. The queenies in lobster butter were...More

You could try the crab claws and if she doesn't get on with them...polish them off yourself. They're fab!
