Description: The Crab Shack isn't just a restaurant, it's a destination! We seat more than 700 guests and offer both indoor and outdoor dining options. Both dining rooms and our outdoor dining deck offer picturesque views of Chimney Creek. Both the young and young-at-heart will enjoy our interactive, educational "Gator Lagoon" which is home to 78 baby alligators; our aviary which is home to more than a dozen rescued exotic birds, and our "Gift Shack". The Crab Shack offers traditional Low Country fare, including fresh streamed and boiled seafood and slow-cooked BBQ. We also have a kid's menu available with burgers, hot dogs, and pizza. The Crab Shack is and always has been a family owned business, and recently began shipping our entrees in ready-to-be-cooked kits through LoCo To Go. Stop by and experience all we have to offer for yourself!

Great Food and excellent service, friendly serving staff, many seating options and significant parking available. The seafood platter for two is a great option for a couple.

This place is so popular that you might want to try for a week night. It is popular for a reason. Tasty and fresh sea food in a great location.

We were there last night with my 5 year old son, and let me tell you... Jessica was amazing at keeping him engaged! The crab shack is a great restaurant, most of the times that we have come here its always busy so i think sometimes service is a bit rush, which i understand!! But she was phenomenal, very friendly, took her time to chat, and was great with my son!!! Another great reason to come back!!

Thank Veroholland

Crab shack still good after all these years. But ya gotta love seafood. The meal is as good as the server, and Jessica was on her game. She had attention to detail and a great big smile. She is former Navy and I always say vets make great employees.
We had the huge seafood platter and it was good and fun to dine on with other friends. They are surprised by the neat gator pond. Can't go wrong here for a fun evening.

Thank Jimmy D
