Description: The Crab Shack isn't just a restaurant, it's a destination! We seat more than 700 guests and offer both indoor and outdoor dining options. Both dining rooms and our outdoor dining deck offer picturesque views of Chimney Creek. Both the young and young-at-heart will enjoy our interactive, educational "Gator Lagoon" which is home to 78 baby alligators; our aviary which is home to more than a dozen rescued exotic birds, and our "Gift Shack". The Crab Shack offers traditional Low Country fare, including fresh streamed and boiled seafood and slow-cooked BBQ. We also have a kid's menu available with shrimp, mac 'n' cheese, hot dogs, and pizza. The Crab Shack is and always has been a family owned business, and recently began shipping our entrees in easy-to-cook meal kits through LoCo To Go. Stop by and experience all we have to offer for yourself!

The Crab Shack is a must stop if you visit Savannah or Tybee Island. The food, atmosphere, and waitress Ana are the BEST!!! The freshest and just right seasoned seafood, perfect bar-b-que, best mixed-drinks, great outdoor patio dining, and outstanding service by Ana was the best way to spend the afternoon. We enjoyed seeing the alligators too! Lady in the Pink Dress : )

Took my family here for dinner during our vacation to Tybee. What a great time, family of 7 waited about 30 minutes like we were told… normally that’s not to fun with 5 kids BUT this place had a gator pond where we could feed the gators, a wild bird rescue that was up close and personal and overall just great views and fun environment. Once we got sat, after rounding everyone up, the service was perfect and food was delicious! Our waitress, Ana, was phenomenal and the coconut cream pie for dessert was the best I’ve ever had! 5 stars, A plus! Definitely put this on your agenda when your in Tybee!

Nothing on the menu is local caught. We had the captains platter. The shrimp and crawfish were small and overcooked. The crab and mussels were good. The potatoes, sausage, and corn were not memorable. The wait staff was great. Not what I expected.

We are terribly sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal, as we always wish for our guests to have an exceptional experience. While we do offer locally caught blue crab and stone crab, we are only able to offer it when our local crabbers are able to provide it. Please do always ask for a manager if ever there is anything that does not meet your expectations so we can take immediate corrective action. We would like some more information about your visit if you could please contact us at kim@thecrabshack.com.

We had a wonderful relaxing afternoon lunch here. What a great atmosphere! Beautiful location on the water with a cool breeze coming across. The food was delicious and the place itself is so cool. We had Ana as our waitress and she was so friendly and awesome. I would def recommend making the trip here it was great!

Ana was our server. She was very attentive and able to answer any questions to make sure you get your preferred meal! The deviled crab was excellent as was the key lime pie. Would recommend for a sea food lover.
