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!

Highly recommended by many we made a special trip out to this and weren't disappointed. Excellent fish but not the best wine but good value. Lovely beachside views.

The crab shack is a fantastic place to enjoy a relaxed meal with a spectacular view across the bay. The food here is great and offers a wide variety all of which taste incredible. My personal recommendation would be the whole Jersey Chancre crab !

The food is really good, although the staff could of been a bit more friendly. The view of the bay is amazing and the location is very easy to get to and find. Overall it is a very relaxing place with a good choice on the menu. Excellent value.

We had walked to St. Brelades bay from the centre of St. Helper and the Crab Shack appealed to us as somewhere to reward ourselves with a drink and a bite to eat. It has an enviable location overlooking the beautiful bay. We weren't overly hungry and asked for drinks and a look at the menu. We were graciously accepted... More

Called in for a quick lunch. It was busy which we took to be a good sign. Had a selection of starters that were all pretty average. The hummus was bland, curried cauliflower stodgy and under seasoned, calamari greasy with very bland mayonnaise and battered prawns not much better. They'd have been better off using a tempura type batter as... More

Having previously had a decent lunch at the Gorey Crab Shack we checked out the St Brelade shack. . My 1st course was lamb kofta with hummus & tomato. It was tasteless with no spice, just a hint of coriander. My main was shellfish linguine. It was the most tasteless meal I have ever eaten in Jersey, it was dry... More
