“Met my expectation and even better.”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

I did not expect that it would be fancy. So I wasn't surprised when I found it as a shack. It's Crab Shack! Of course.

Food was amazing. I had the full crab. They gave me the crab cracker kit and even a wooden hammer. Lol fantastic.

I loved the Jersey royal potatoes that came with my crab dishes. Super lovely. Mustard/mayonnaise was amazing.

I had the banana sundae for dessert, it was massive and good. I was just very full. My boyfriend had the sticky toffee pudding and it looked very good.

Waiter who took our order was super friendly, he was laughing when I ordered the full crab and made sure that I had cracked crabs before. The waitress who took care of us afterward was very nice too.

Overall, I had a very good experience. Not to forget the view was just amazing as we were basically just 2 meters away from the beach :-)

“Bistro atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Right on the seafront. Very good for fish. Nice laid-back place with fresh fish and shellfish in particular at decent prices.

This was not a good start to our stay in St Brelades. Food was of a poor quality. May just have been a bad day.

“Good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Quick meal outside. Food was good, really enjoyed it, staff were very friendly and helpful.

If you are eating outside, check the heat lamp works above your table - ours didn't and it dropped chilly as the sun went down.

Very reasonably priced.

“Better than the Gorey branch”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Came here with a large group of work colleagues. Service was good, the crab taco was lovely but a bit lacking in spice. Chips were delicious though. The location is superb.
