The restaurant is a carryout shop although there are some picnic tables out front. We had fried fish, fried oysters, crab soup, and cucumber salad. Everything was freshly made and tasted great The people were very nice, There were several people outside enjoying crabs. Good...alternative to the expensive seafood restarants in Kent Narrows.More

Recommended by a friend. He wasn't wrong. Nice little crab shack. Good crabcakes, good fish & chips, good softshell crabs. It was good overall and inexpensive too. There are tables with umbrellas outside where you can sit, but it can be hot if there isn't...a breeze. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something quick and inexpensive.More

Disappointed.. Ordered two crab cake platters with lettuce and tomatoes.. none of it was fresh French fries were cold and soggy. There was very little crab in the crab soup.. more like vegetable soup. Unlikely that we will go back

We stopped in for a lunch here and were glad we did. I do suggest you call in your order ahead of time because we did end up waiting a half hour for our food and they were out of a few things on their...menu. That said, all the food we had was really tasty and the portions were huge and the prices were low. As far as shrimp shacks go it was perfect.More

Went here last month and here we are back again. It's that good. A beautiful day for a short 45 minute drive to Stevensville Crab Shack for us from Columbia, MD. It's well worth the trip. Vegetable crab soup is delicious. Crabs are large, heavy...and meaty. This time I had 2 dozen oysters which was a real treat for me. Had the local oysters but they also had blue point oysters from New England. Wife and I were stuffed when we left so I had to bring home a slice of Smith Island Cake to have later. They close for the season on November 14 buy I may try to get back one more time next week. I just love this little place. Very friendly and accommodating owners. Nothing fancy is an understatement but oh so good.More

Not bad. Stopped for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Friendly service. Outdoor picnic tables. Quick delivery of food. Crab cake sandwich was ok, but don’t be expecting lump or jumbo lump crab. This is lower budget. French fries were fresh cut, but limp and greasy....Good coleslaw. It would not be hard to make this a better place. Just needs to step things up a little bit.More

Don’t let the look fool you - this is the best seafood in the area! Affordable and fresh as can be. The place was packed at 3pm on a Thursday (but there’s plenty of outdoor seating). Crab cakes are a can’t-miss! Open during Covid -...staff is wearing masks & making sure only a handful of people are inside ordering at a time.More

I have been stopping at the Stevensville Crab Shack for about 15+ years. Bob & Cheri are wonderful people providing really good food. I am not from the area as I live just north of Philadelphia, PA. Most of visits were from previous business trips...to the Virginia, DC and Maryland areas. I wanted to get some good crabs from the Chesapeake Bay so I drove 2 hours from my home to the crab shack. Bob remembered me from my past visits as it had been a while since I was last there. Bob steamed me up some crabs to take home and I was not disappointed. Best Crabs Ever!!! I will continue to drive 2 hours to the Stevensville Crab Shack because they provide quality food and service. By the way anyone stopping here should try the crab cake platter. This is one of my favorites.More

Unfortunately no. We have a very small outside area, but you could always pick up crabs and go to another venue. I hope this helped. If there is anything we can do to help you with your party feel free to call us. Thank... More
