After hearing mixed reviews about the Crab shack I was keen to finally try it out for myself on Saturday evening. It happened to be pouring with rain, and although they really are just a deck, they had a lovely little fire going and each person at our table got a blanket which was amazing considering how cold it was! Our table started with a few mixed platters that consisted of corn dogs, chili poppers, shrimp popcorn (which was amazing) crumbed prawns and the most delicious chicken wings! We almost couldn't eat our mains we were so full. The starters did take a while to come out, but to make it up to us, the manager bought our whole table a round of shots. These went down well.

For mains we ordered a variety of dishes from combos, to calamari, prawns, ribs, but the winners were definitely the soft shell crabs and the jambalaya! I'd say a lot of the food is deep fried. So if you're getting fried starters, maybe stick to grilled or steamed mains otherwise it's really just too rich and

The popcorn shrimp was recommended and I can see why. Tasty, crunchy, and with that zesty mayo - I didn't want to share my 300g bucket! The poppers on a stick were also nice, especially with the welcome addition of two sauce choices, but the jalapeños themselves were incredibly small beneath the batter. The Bourbon wings were winners, too. Sticky and sinful and sweet. I had a side order of rice which was pretty bland. The side order of chips were great, though. The cocktails were a bit disappointing. I had a Pimms which was very weak and lacking that distinct flavored, but my partner had their bumblebee which was very tasty but sadly very small. All in all, nice vibe and great service. The seafood is very pricey and I wouldn't spend that amount on their mains, but going for a glass of wine and their starters is a must.
