Hi team. Thank you so much for hosting our birthday party tonight and for accommodating all of our special requests. We are absolutely delighted with everything. The food was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The only things I would suggest is closer attention to customer needs as we had to try and attract attention of staff to get drinks etc. I do appreciate you were busy and staff are only human. You might want to consider an online booking system. I would also suggest you reconsider your policy and practices around requesting and holding credit card details as your system is not secure and that is not good banking or privacy practice. In the main we had a fantastic time! Please pass on our thanks to the team and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Our large group of elderly and myself loved our meal immensely. We had all heard about The Crab Shack and now we know where you are and what great meals you have. Food was tasty and such a wide choice. need to come back to have what others at the table ordered. All the staff were friendly and helpful, even if they were not our server, they still spent the time to answer and were polite and friendly. We will be back. Thank you.

The quality and taste of the food has definitely decreased since I dined here last and unfortunately the prices have increased. Crab Shack used to be top notch but what we got was pretty lack lustre (eg the tacos were incredibly stingy and almost only half-filled with a very small portion of filling - terrible, considering you charge $9-12 for each taco). Disappointing.

Great casual dining in an almost East coast style, like Rhode Island & Mass.

Everyone in the team enjoyed there meal, fresh and tasty. The service was excellent for a busy lunch time. Bit too noisy for conversation but that is expected with high ceilings and an open kitchen. Thanks again.
