Crab Shack is definitely a great place for friends or family friendly meal. The menu is good, the food is good and the service is ok. I didn't rate it 5 stars because I think it could do with a refurbishing, better service & overall more choices of food, recipes. Needs to look and feel cleaner too to be rated... More

Great food. Great service. Great view of the castle. Parking on the street not always easy though! Very reasonably prized. A definite must!

Fun place with lovely food. Very relaxed setting with friendly and helpful staff and a nice view of the beach. Very popular so probably best to book before you go.

What a find, bang on the foreshore and with easy parking. The place is relaxed, friendly and a touch quirky. The menu is exciting and varied. Seafood absolutely the star of the show - Jersey crab taco and fresh oysters simply delicious. Wish we'd found it sooner as would without hesitation return to work through the rest of the menu!

We went here on Christmas Eve for a late lunch. Even though they had already been very busy the staff dealt with all requests promptly and the service was cheery. The food was delicious especially the crab linguine. A perfect beach side cafe/restaurant.

Wine is very nice and very reasonable. Food was delicious. The staff were lovely. But last orders on a Friday night were 8.30! Come on Jersey - I bet you'd get busier if you didn't close so early!
