Easy place to get a lunch other than busy. Good simple food, I enjoyed a crab salad. Popular with tourists but with the location and the good food I can see why. I would eat here again for lunch.

Great fresh steamed crab, fish tacos are killer and the best lobster roll I have eaten on the west coast. Small walk up and order with tables inside and out. A small place and anything but fancy with always a line worth standing in. Simple fresh seafood at its best. You cant go wrong here except it closes at 8:00... More

Love the fresh crab even though it's not particularly inexpensive. So fresh. Not like what you buy on the stores.

Quaint, Fresh, Historic Tony's Crab Shack is the best of the best. Don't miss this one. You can actually get fish NOT deep-fried if you chose. Why? Because it's freshly-caught off the Oregon Coast with nothing to hide. A really great lunch spot to enjoy the coast and food for sure!

Small restaurant. Arrive early for lunch or you won't get a seat. Indoor seating is almost non existent. If your a large group over 6 it's near impossible to get a seat. Crab, seafood are awesome. We give 4 star and not five because they need to add some flavor to their crab butter and seating. They close promptly at... More

We finally got a chance to eat here. Typically too busy so we move on. Now we know why. All our meals were top notch. Wonderfully fresh fish tacos.

Wow this place is great! We ate here twice and would've more if we didn't have to leave town! We tried our luck at crabbing off the docks and had we been successful enough they would clean and cook for very cheap. We had a platter of crab and clams, chowder, crab cake, and coleslaw. Everything was so good. It... More

Visited this restaurant twice while camping in Bandon. Great clam chowder the first time and then fish and chips and chowder the second time. Can't wait to visit again!

The crab cakes were great, the Ciopinno, and the grilled cod were simply prepared with little to no salt, so some seasoning was required. They do have S & P and hot sauce at the table. The atmosphere is great and so are the people. Would go again.

A very small, kind of funky little place on the waterfront. You order at the counter and might have to wait in line but the food is worth it. My seafood platter had 3 shrimp, half a Dungeness crab, and 6 clams served with an excellent pasta salad and delicious coleslaw. The dipping sauces were so tasty that I used... More
