The word 'shack' had me thinking cafe - it was actually a really pleasant surprise. Waiter was really helpful (to the extent that he listened to what we wanted then helped us choose between a variety of different mains). The skate I had was divine and clearly very very fresh. The seafood curry my husband had was full of flavour... More

The reviews looked promising so we gave it a go. We weren't disappointed. The crab is sublime. The crab cakes were just melt in the mouth and my crab taco was lovely. My daughter had fish and chips which she said were delicious. I imagine it gets busy in summer. It overlooks the beach directly. The service was great and... More

On a three day visit to Jersey we were not disappointed by the Crab Shack. Situated in St Brelade's Bay it has great views but the important thing - the food - doesn't disappoint. The four of us chose the fish dishes of course and they were just great. The service was pretty good and all in all our visit... More

Have eaten here many times on visiting Jersey and returned recent for Sunday lunch, which I enjoyed very much. Nice buzzy atmosphere and a good menu, lots of choices (less "fish" based then in previous visits?). Food very good, service also commendable, speedy and friendly. Great table by the window. The views over the bay at St Brelade made for... More

Visited here as a big group and were generally happy with our meal. The food was pretty good for the price and the casual setting was just what we wanted. Considering the place is called Crab Shack there is a distinct lack of crab! I had the crab tacos, which were lovely and I'm sure more crab dishes would also... More

Apart from the fabulous view and the lovely fresh food, how the staff respond to customer needs is excellent. We recently (accidentally) caused a problem for other diners and the staff gave immediate support and reparation. Well done Crab Shack, and sorry again to the four gentlemen who got an unexpected wet lunch....

Lovely looking restaurant in a beautiful bay however food was unfortunately really disappointing. Calamari was basically just over cooked batter that did not taste of any calamari at all - it resembled frozen calamari you can cook in the oven at home. A main sized portion of this with chips cost £18.50. Massively overpriced and very disappointing. Such as shame... More

It was a foggy day but the food was really good. Booked online the day before for lunch so no problem to sit down as I know they get busy and will turn people away. With online booking we were able to book late the night before from our hotel room so no problem really. Oysters were lovely and the... More

After we eat in the oyster Box last night we thought we would try the crab shack. With a G&T and a pint off Mary Ann, we tucked into the fish and chips. Yummy fantastic fish and lovely chips. This place has great atmosphere and the staff are cool and happy. The only one small point would be the salad... More
