Crab cakes are great. Hushpuppy stuffed with tons of real crab. There were a lot of locals eating there and they gave us advice on what to order. If you are a princess dont eat there if you like adventure & trying new places. We woyld go back again. Dont miss the slaw!

This was just middle of the road sea food. It was a Friday night, pretty busy. I heard when they were taking orders that they were out of certain items. Was only 7:00 p.m. when we dined. Service was OK, nothing special. Not sure I would eat here again.

Stopped by after reading the previous reviews. I love "Hole in the Wall" restaurants that surprise you with their amazing food. The only surprise I received was a bill for food I couldn't eat. The Crab Shack is bare bones with one server and a TV for background sound. I bravely sat down although the only person in the cafe,... More

Stopped here to eat based on a google search of what was on our way home from Disney back to the Tampa area. It was located right off I-4. Crab cakes, fried shrimp, and scallops were all good. Corn fritters were dynamite! Don't skip those. We will stop here again.

Been coming here for years and never left disappointed. Service always good. Best cleaned, prepped and prepared crab anywhere. The crab shala (Friday and Saturday only) is excellent. My mouth is watering...gotta go!

You have got to try this place. It is reasonably priced, and although it isn't much to look at, it has some great food. Do not leave without trying the deviled crab. It's amazing.

I ordered the garlic crab special. I was very impressed. There are a lot of seafood items to choose from on the menu I can't wait to get back and try the softshell crab sandwich. The restaurant itself is small, and will fill up pretty quick. But the service is spot on.

Service was great but it seemed like everything on the menu was fried. Nothing stood out as different or must be tried.

Lord have mercy if you want some lip smacking delights without a crowd go here. Our best small town secret by far doing it again. This week for Christmas. Friendly clean and highest quality seafood anywhere. Don't miss this place by the railroad museum in downtown Plant City and desert is great. Yummy Yum Yum !
