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

The Crab shack was extremely close to the condo me and husband was staying at, and we thought it would be an interesting place to eat. We were mesmerized by the lights and decor of the restaurant when we drove up. It was beautiful! There was plenty to do while we were waiting on our table. We checked out the... More

We absolutely loved this place! The atmosphere was so much fun. Our waiter was very pleasant and the service was very good. We order the sampler for 2 and it was more than we could eat. The seafood was delicious. The price was great for the amount and quality of the food. The only downfall was the location of the... More

Love the seafood platter. Have been here twice now and it never fails to impressive me. The food and staff are great. This is now on my short list of places to visit each time I'm in Savannah for business! Great job!

Driving up to the restaurant, you see different 'shacks' & each one is different. We walked through a home for cats, alligators, & of great customer service. There are plenty of opportunities to get awesome pictures & to just enjoy yourself. We were greeted with a friendly smile and was kindly seated. Our waitress, Ana, was amazing! She made our... More

I really loved the atmosphere. The food was good not great. The draw back was it wasn't the cleanest place. The tables where dirty and sticky as well as the condiment bottles. So that really turned me off. Plus the waiter ate some of my food which I'm sure he thought was funny but I thought it was rude. I... More

We went to The crab shack for a family lunch. We've been visiting the crab shack for around ten years. It's always delicious and fun. We always have good service but this visit was exceptionally fun. Our servers name was Ana and she was a blast. She was very pleasant, attentive and friendly. Thank you, Ana.

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!
