Great service, welcoming, efficient and knowledgable. Pint of prawns substantial, dressed crab tasty (salad could have more to it) crab claws garlicky and yummy. Extensive menu - difficult to choose what to have. Will definitely be back.

A pity that when I visited one could not buy only crab claws, but instead the whole crab, having said that the crab is as fresh as you can get and deliciously preped, I would not say it was particularly cheap though, views are lovelly and service o.k. also a great pub on hand, Hope this has been of some...

Booked here for lunch as a pre anniversary meal. Didn't disappoint. Great starters of Spicy Crevettes and Scallops in Herbs and Pancetta with very tasty breads. Mains of Posh Fish Finger Sandwich (Gurnard Goujons battered) and 1/2 Grilled Lobster were just as good. Great wines and efficient and polite service.

We ate here last year whilst visiting my parents, who live in Teignmouth. Overall, food and service was excellent. My partner absolutely loves crab and shellfish and living in the North West we struggle to get decent, fresh places to eat. We ordered the shellfish platter for two - It was HUGE and, although the price tag was not cheap,... More

My friend and I were lucky to get a table for lunch (we hadn't booked) on the 3rd March. The food was excellent both of us had the crab shack roll which was lobster & crab. We couldn't manage a pudding. Service was excellent and we would definitely go again

Hubby and I went had lunch at The Crab Shack and we were extremely impressed. The two young ladies who welcomed us and served us were so lovely, efficient and couldn't do more to make us feel welcome. The food was superb and the prices were really good for such an exceptionable meal. We will be back.!.

First ever visit to Teignmouth and we had booked for lunch at The Crab Shack. It proved to be a great choice: this is a small restaurant but it provides a big welcome with really friendly staff. Spoiled for choice by the menu with a great specials board also. We both went for the crevettes as a starter; they were... More
