The Crab Shack
At the Crab Shack, they’ve selected several standard platters that prove to be favorites or you can mix and match your own crustacean selections. Order blue crabs by the dozen, snow crabs or shrimp by the pound, oysters by the bucket, and pick and shell everything yourself. Nothing is... fried, all food is steamed, boiled, or raw, which brings out the very best taste in seafood. Accompanied by lemon wedges, melted butter, and cocktail sauce, there’s nothing better. A hole in the center of the table provides trash disposal and your own individual roll of paper towels is at the ready. Many small sinks are scattered about the place for times when your hands go beyond the paper towels. A recent addition to The Crab Shack is The Gator Lagoon. This is a 25,000 gallon tropical lagoon surrounded by lush tropical foliage. The lagoon is home to gurgling waterfalls, a working replica of the Tybee Lighthouse and 78 live alligators. The exhibit allows guests an opportunity for safe interaction with the gators, by feeding special gator treats affixed to the end of a cane pole to the reptiles. Specially trained attendants are ready to answer questions and offer interesting gator facts. There is outdoor seating under giant oak trees beside the gator lagoon where you can watch the gators swim or sun themselves while you dine al fresco. The Crab Shack offers a continual party atmosphere but in a laid back manner, with plenty of outdoor seating along the creek bank under Spanish moss draped oaks trimmed with twinkling white lights. Fans stir a breeze when none is present-but if there is any breeze around it seeks out the bend of Chimney Creek, where the Crab Shack is situated. For less than perfect weather, of if there’s a chill in the air, giant blowers send air (or heat) into the Party Shack and the main dining room which offer almost as much ambience but with protection from the elements. With a seating capacity of over 500 and 3 full bars, reservations are not required or accepted May 1 through Labor Day. It’s strictly first-come, first-served. There’s plenty of free parking on the four acre plot that is lovingly called Crab Universe by the locals.Read More >
