Went there on a Sunday night and it was empty. It was a rainy night and truthfully the whole street was empty. It is a very casual restaurant, the service was great and so was the food. I felt their prices were very fair. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and at first thought it tasted weird, but then that... More

The food was incredible, authentic and wholesome, the setting inspiring and the service awesome.The setting was as though we were on a boat.There was more than one piece of cutlery that we used,especially for children.

The Crabshack is open year round. The service is very good and they will do their best to accomodate any of your wishes. They serve the freshest fish and seafood, prepared in a simple and delectable way. I especially enjoy their pasta with white clam sauce. Their prices are good and the service is very good. We are never disappointed.

We ate here for the first time and were pleasantly surprised with the high quality and taste of our selections. My wife had broiled flounder and I had broiled scrod. We both had house salads and mixed vegetables . The mixed vegetables were cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and yellow squash. The food was prepared and served in a reasonable time and... More

My Daughter suggested this place as we had dined at Rachel's the night before. Again, the food and service was excellent. We had a pleasant dinner with my daughter and son in law. I had the soft-shell crab and it was perfect, not overdone nor undercooked. We had stopped here once before, right after Hurricane Sandy and somehow they had... More

We had a groupon for this restaurant and after reading the reviews, I was not expecting much. It was mid-week and we were a group of 4. We all enjoyed our meals. Service was a little slow, but I would eat here again. Maybe it's best to come in season.

The food is always good, fresh and prepared to your order. One of the long established restaurants on the Nautical Mile , it's well known for it's fresh seafood. I loved my cold lobster platter while my friend had fried clams which were wonderful. My other 2 favorites are their lobster roll and mussels, always perfect !!

Our waitress, Kerry, was super friendly, with a great, dry sense of humor. For that alone, plus the fact that I know this restaurant suffered terribly from Superstorm Sandy, I wished I could have given more "stars" to this review, but the food was just too lacking in quality to do so. Although thick and warming on a chilly early... More
