Literally everything cooked at Tony's Crab Shack is fantastic! It's always crowded but well worth the wait time and crowds! It's a MUST DO every time we go to Bandon!!

The clam chowder tastes like it is canned. I ordered the "wild caught" salmon sandwich. I was expecting a salmon patty . It was a flat piece of preformed ??? and tasted terrible. My wife ordered a shrimp/crab sandwich which was very bland and uneventful. The only good side was the coleslaw . Very good.

This is a "fun" place to go. People watching and staff singing & dancing along with loud music and din...keeps you entertained. Oh yes, & they serve food here too; mostly deep fried.

I stopped in for lunch with a friend while we were on a roadtrip. Looking in, it's hard to tell if there's room to sit down as it really does appear to be a shack. Seating is limited, but there's a variety of two person tables, booths, and individual seats along the window. The decor is great! For a little... More

Short and to the point here with this review...don't eat the burgers or the pulled pork sandwich. We made that mistake and they were both awful. The crab sandwich was good but that was it. They give out cans of soda so be aware if you ask for a soda with your meal you get a can. No cup with... More

Not an elegant restaurant,but they serve the best crab cakes I've ever had! They were light and fluffy (yes, really) and not at all greasy. The inside seating is small and there's not much ambience, but the food and friendly staff makes up for all that.

Don't let the "shack" fool you. This is good food and friendly staff. We make the 5 hour drive and stay overnight just to eat here.

We ordered 2 cioppino (tomato base fish stew) crab cakes & 1 Corona the total came to $50 including a $5 tip. 12oz bowl was not enough for the $12.75 price tag, no white fish, to much baby shrimp, 4 cockles w/shells, little crab (no chunks) very plain base. 2 crab cakes $15, good but served w/ tarter sauce, would...

A nice local place for a quick meal. I had the fish and chips which were very good. I would not hesitate to return to this place.

Traveling the coast line and stayed in Bandon one night. Wanted local seafood and stopped by Tony's. We tried a bowl of their clam chowder first and it was terrible. It was white water that they dragged a clam through with some bay leaf. In all of our sampling of chowder this was the worse. Needless to say we did... More
