This is one of my wife and my favorite seafood restaurants. On a Friday evening we met her parents and grandmother for dinner since some of us had to work on thanksgiving. There must have been a company Christmas party which Crab Shack had an area roped off for them but they all congregated next to the bar on the same side as our table. More and more kept showing up for that party and literally had people’s backsides within a couple feet of our faces. On top of the party’s noise the music was sky high. Thank god I decided to notify our server about the problem and she made our visit much more comfortable and less noisy by switching us to a table on the other side of the restaurant. The crab dip was awesome and my crab cake sandwich was a little peppery. I usually get a crab leg steamer (which is delicious) but decided to try something different. Our seating close to that standing party could have been easily avoided but kudos to the staff for quickly accommodating our request to move!

The whole experience was great. You can tell that whoever runs the store has put thought into making it an experience for their customers. Food was great, service was wonderful, and most importantly, my girlfriend had a blast on her birthday.

Our first visit. It was HIGHLY recommended by our Daughter. The Seafood was simply outstanding, and the staff were very friendly, helpful and pleasant .
In every way, it puts Red Lobster to shame. My only complaint is that it isn't in Charleston, WV, but some 2-1/2 hours drive away. HIGHLY RECOMENDED

The Crab Shack is pretty good for a seafood restaurant in a land locked state like wV. This is good, casual and dirty eating. Just roll up your sleeves and dig in.

Food was awesome. We had calamari for appetizer and the steamed meals for dinner. My only complaint was the price of the alcohol and most speciality drinks had rum in them. My server was spot on.

I don’t know if it was just cause they were doing a special for fat Tuesday but this was by far the worst crab legs I have ever had. They were way over cooked and tough. Not at all what I was expecting for the cost of the upgrade on the buffet

Food is just okay. Service was just okay. It didn’t seem like there were enough people working. It took a really long time for our food to come out.

They sat us on the patio in chairs that were flimsy and sat way too low for the table. Food was decent, but overpriced. Pasta entree was barely 5 ounce portion, if that. Salted dark chocolate Panna Cotta had a bit too much gelatin and not much dark chocolate flavor. Red velvet souflee was warm, and very flavorful. Crab steamer was ok, snow crab not very meaty. It tasted fresh and had flavor though. Our server was busy, but attentive. Manager visited our table and was very helpful and attentive as well.

There are not many places to get good crab or boils....this place is pretty good. The crab is always cooked well and their shrimp boil is tasty. Although its not to the level of a charleston SC boil, it is pretty good. The waitress was great...very friendly. We were there on a Saturday around 4ish and the place was empty. It is pretty expensive.

We made a reservation for NYE. When we arrived, we were quickly seated. The waiter came by and brought us water while we looked over the menu. We tried to order drinks, but they weren’t serving any of the specialty drinks on the regular menu. We asked if there were any drink specials (we were there during the normal happy hour) and was told no, that they just had the regular menu because it was a holiday. The waiter was annoyed because everything we tried to order (from the regular menu) they couldn’t make at the bar, so we tell him we will just stick with the water for now and keep looking at the menu. The waiter then leaves, and never returns. We waited 15 minutes, and still no waiter. All of the tables around us are ordering and getting food, while we just sit there. The employees are all dressed like hookers. I know it’s NYE, but do you really need to have your boobs hanging out?! We ended up getting up and leaving. We were super disappointed. We had been looking forward to a nice evening out and ended up being leaving.

Had the lobster steam pot, delish, but lobster could have been a bit larger. Hush puppies tasted awesome, could have used some regular butter for them.

Site needs to evaluate their Air Conditioning. The restaurant was too warm for a sit down dinner. Although the servers were very nice, they were a bit slow to provide seating and initial drinks after being seated.

Good food, place looked nice. Drunk people at the bar with the bartender, one guy shouting about losing his weed in a napkin, lady in a red dress rubbing a guys dick at the bar where everyone could see, while hanging out with the bartender.

We arrived daily late and the service was fast and good. Waitress was very attentive and the food came out quickly. Ordered raw oysters since that was the special and they were very nice sized, more so than I expected. The boil was huge, could have easily fed two people. Was expecting it to have more flavor and possibly be spicier but in all it was good.

We are there on a Saturday nt and it was loud due to live entertainment. The band was great however. The food was very good. Not quite as good as Joe's Crab Shack but they do give you a little more for about the same price. I would return

The live music was way too loud for the price and there was a drunk f-bombing in the booth behind us nd we had our young daughter with us. It was all I could do to contain myself and my husband. Other than that.....dinner was great....a Lil too much old bay seasoning but good. My bill was 157 and we gave our waitress 30 tip. All in all....3 to 4 stars....minus noise level and drunk a 4 to 5 for sure.
