This place is awesome! The food is always good. Our usual is the broiled seafood combo. The crab chowder is amazing! And the clams are delicious. The only reason I am not giving an excellent review is because we were over charged.

Went to this little place based on reviews we saw. The food was delicious!! It seems to be more of a take out place, but there are a few tables in case you want to dine in, which we did. Joe the owner seated us and talked to us for awhile. It's not advertised, but you can byob. The menu... More

We came by at around 5:30 per the advice of the nice woman who answered the phone. The staff accomodated our 6 person party by moving tables together and quickly took care of our orders. The place is casual and the seating is comfortable, but it´s not fancy. When they bring you plasticware in a basket, don´t be alarmed! When... More

Our family of 9 visited for dinner. Had a great meal and service. The owner takes great pride in his establishment and visited or table a few times to ensure we were well taken care of. Spend a day at the beach, do a quick change/shower and stop in for a casual yet delicious seafood dinner...it's BYOB too!

The food is outstanding!! It's a small place that doesn't look like much when you pull up. Go in and eat, we were not disappointed!!! The owner is a terrific guy who takes pride in his food, all the recipes are his..

Try to get a restaurant to cook and clean crabs on the Fourth of July...they came through with flying colors...no problem...garlic crabs with a sauce rolls were meant to dip in...and they provided the rolls too. The traditional old bay crabs were to die for. Large crabs perfectly cooked and a wonderful owner who was willing to accommodate a take... More

The Crab & Seafood Shack is located in Wildwood, NJ on the corner of Park & Burk. We called ahead (they don't take reservations) and we were told to come at a specific time, and if so we would be seated quickly. We arrived at the exact time suggested, but instead waited almost an hour to be seated, outside in... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, hopefully we, as a business, will improve because of it. The time you are referring to was Saturday of the 4th of July week=end, we were very busy and unfortunatly did not offer the best customer service as you put it. We dot not accept reservations because of people not showing... More

I had a delicious seafood meal that was fresh and excellently cooked. This had been my second time visiting in two years, and again I was not dissatisfied with the meal or the service. The crab chowder is amazing- I love the New England style the best. It was tasty without being overly salty as it can be at times... More

My friend and I ate at the Crab and Seafood Shack on Friday July 3rd. We got there a little after it opened and there were already two tables filled. We wanted seafood so I did a quick Google Review search and this place popped up. I always go to places based on reviews and the Crab and Seafood Shack... More
