We ventured out to Tybee Island on a dark and stormy night - so dark and stormy, we saw funnel clouds forming, but we had heard so much about The Crab Shack that we were determined to go and darn Mother Nature! It started to pour, and the only problem I had with the place was the lack of shelter from the rain, but it's only water, right?
Our party was more than happy we braved the torrential downpour! The food is abundant and delicious! Fine dining at it's best, your menu also serves as your placemat. If there's two or more of you, get the sampler platter. It's huge. Three of us ate the sampler platter labeled for two and we still had a ton of food leftover. The platter includes steamed shrimp, mussels, and crawfish, boiled potatoes, corn on the cob, delicious sausages, and King crab legs. The others in our party that did not partake in the platter opted for the crab cakes, which were equally delicious.
Their New England style clam chowder was also good, but not so special that it deserves a special mention, but there you go, I mentioned it.
Feel free to get your hands dirty and make a mess at your table - there's a hole in the middle of each table which contains a garbage bin below it - easy to dump you shells and juice-soaked paper napkins.
Servers were more than friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and casual - lazy day at the beach type stuff.
Look for the friendly stray cat that's made it's home there. It goes around from table to table scoffing food from the guests.
Look for a business card for The Crab Shack at the concierge desk of your local hotel. It usually offers some sort of freebie (like a free margarita), but look for restrictions (weekdays only, that sort of thing).

They feature only broiled or steamed seafood and offer a sampler Platter for two for $35 which is more than enough for two people. It has King Crab legs, Dungeoness Crab Claws, Steamed shrimp, Mussels, Crawfish, potatoes, Extra Sweet Corn on the Cob and sausages. The seafood was the best flavored I have had in a long time. The have other steamed dishes available but the sampler platter is their most popular - the same sampler for one is $22.
The waitstaff are very friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend this restaurant for those who want to feel free to get your hands dirty as you eat some really good seafood and drink some excellent beer. Its perfect after a long day at the beach.
