The Crab Shack is perfect for anyone that loves large portions of seafood and dislikes pretentiousness. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is casual, and the service is great. I recommend the crab legs; they are yummy and fun to play with.

Got my fill of shrimp, oysters, and clams. Served with corn on the cob and red potatoes. These were the largest shrimp I have ever seen. Delicious!!! Key lime pie was to die for. Also have delicious non seafood selections available.
