Average service with very good food. I had the Cajun Creole Chowder which was excellent. We had Grouper sandwich and SHrimps. Both were very good. Place has an old Vibe about it.

Visited crab shack after flight to Tampa and drive to Sarasota. Very fresh fish, no frills, kind of a very cool local place. A little hard to find from airport but I would definitely visit again
