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

We were going to try the Fish House and we were so happy we found the Crab Shack instead. The food was amazing and the atmosphere super relaxing. Roll up your sleeves and have the sampler platter and you won't be disappointed or hungry.

If you go, plan to indulge a little. The menu is a little small and you won't get fried seafood here, but the blue crab and shrimp are fantastic! Also enjoyed the Captain's Sampler another evening. My husband loved the BBQ and there's chicken on the menu, too! If you want really great service ask for Ana! She taught us... More

My daughter suffers from a gluten (celiac), wheat and dairy allergy. After letting Ana the server know, she quickly suggested they steam a few things for her with no seasonings. We so appreciate the special effort and attention to detail to keep her safe! Thanks Ana and to everyone at the Crab Shack!!!

You will not be disappointed at The Crab Shack. The food is awesome. We had lunch one day dinner the next. Sit outside or inside, then feed the alligators. And the table are made with an hole in the middle for your trash. Everything is on paper plates.

This was our last meal in Savannah before heading to the airport for home. Glad we didn't miss this place. It was our favorite place while we were here. Amazing atmosphere, great food and service from our waiter Gino. We stopped for lunch this past weekend and had mussels, and the Captain Crab's Sampler Platter, with crab, mussels, shrimp, crawfish... 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!
