Perfect for lunch on the beautiful stretch of beach at St Brelade's bay. Crab tacos are gorgeous, filled full of crab. Really big portions. Lovely to sit on the benches outside overlooking the beach.

Well we were lucky! Great weather- we were able to sit outside and watch the world go by. Amazing seafood platter washed down with crisp cold rose. Perfect!

Excellent meal of high standard. Must book ahead as very busy but not noisy even at busy times. Service was excellent and we had table in window so great view of sea also.

Had lunch but struggled for a light snack (wanted toastie or alike for example). Cost £40 for chips, an average burger, a few small cocktail sausages and green garlic bread. Great view though!

Crab shack could not be in a more perfect position right on the beach and the food itself was every bit as good as the view! Nice quirky clean restaurant with friendly staff.

Generous portions of very fresh and tasty shellfish and seafood. Welcoming staff, wonderful views. If outside watch out for predatory seagulls as entertainment! They'll pinch anything unattended! Don't miss this place.

I visited here with my wife for dinner, it wasn't our first choice of venue to be honest, I'm therefore going to force myself to be objective about our experience here. Without a doubt, the view of St. Brelade's Bay from The Crab Shack is...More

Didn’t see any dogs inside but the beach is full of dog walkers socialising and that’s not just the owners x great expense of sand and sooo pretty

Ridiculously early. Think old people's home, like to shift everyone out by 9pm so don't bother booking after 8.

You can book online or ring... however as it's extremely popular on certain nights.... there is no guarantee of a table when you walk in if you don't book... book to avoid disappointment
