If you're looking for fast food and fast service, or your idea of good seafood includes batter and oil, keep looking! If you're looking for good low country boil seafood and a lai...

Everything is Wonderful here 8/5/2011

If you want great food and a fun, casual atmosphere, this is it! I have been visiting Savannah / Tybee Island for years, and have never tried The Crab Shack because I foolishly thought it was ""touristy."" My husband and I spent our anniversary in Savannah this past weekend, and decided to go try their crab legs. We are so glad we did! Everything about this place is fun, relaxed, and epitomizes the laid-back Tybee lifestyle. The food is fresh, crazy good, and piled high. Grab a t-shirt, shorts and flip flops, and go join in the fun! more

Yummy food! =) 7/21/2011

We ate here twice in the week we stayed on Tybee Island. Both times were very good. Me and a friend ordered the Captain Crab's Sampler for three and we substituted sausage in place of the potatoes and corn - we finished it off completly. Perfectly seasoned mussells, snow crab, crawfish, shrimp and crab claws. We had good service both times too. We enjoyed eating out under the trees and loved that we could just toss our empty shells into the trash basket in the middle of the table. more

LOVED THE CRAB LEGS!!! =) 7/18/2011

On our first night of vacation to Tybee Island, my husband and I tried the Crab Shack. We ordered the Low Country Boil for one. It was plenty of food! The crab legs were my favorite, but my husband enjoyed the mussels the best. We will be back! more

awsome!!! 7/13/2011

We ate outside on the deck with views of the water (not ocean). They served the food on styrofoam plates and there were trashcans in the middle of the tables, but food was good. Very good value, especially for seafood. Great place to eat! more

Great food! 7/8/2011

This was my husband & I's second trip to Crab Shack. We knew our girls (12,9,4) would get a kick out of feeding the alligators so we took them here the evening we arrived on the island. We got a table outside rather than in the screened in restaurant area. Great view of the marsh but the cats were annoying. They are owned by the restaurant & there are signs not to feed them but I'm not a cat person so it was weird. We ordered the Shack Sampler for 2 (similar to Low Country Boil but also has crab legs & crawfish) and it easily fed all 5 of us! A good time was had by all! more

We had so much fun at this restaurant!! 7/6/2011

Its a huge place, you will never wait for a table their seating area seems to go on forever. The food may seem a bit pricey but we managed to spend $30 on 2 people which isn't bad for all the experience. The crab stew is out of this world!! There is an alligator lagoon with a webcam, we live out of state and were able to tell my family to go to and view the webcam and they could see us which was a real treat for my mom! We took so many pictures with the statues around the lagoon and bought souviners, it was so much fun!!! more

Great Clams! 7/1/2011

Ate here on vacation. Atmosphere is really unique with gators, cats, and outdoor seating. Everyone in my party was impressed with their food. I highly recommend the baby clam appetizer! I will definitely be returning to the Crab Shack the next time I'm at Tybee! more

Owner Message

  • 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 burgers, hot dogs, and pizza. The Crab Shack is and always has been a family owned business, and recently began shipping our entrees in ready-to-be-cooked kits through LoCo To Go. Stop by and experience all we have to offer for yourself!


  • The Scene
    Located on Chimney Creek, just off the main drag linking Savannah and Tybee Island, the Crab Shack has all the makings of a tourist trap. Fortunately, you won't mind being roped...
