They were CLOSED! They took reservations but weren't open. Several people came up to the door. Closed. No note or notice.

I dont know if this was Open Table's fault or the fault of Shaking Crab, but... I made reservations on New Years Eve for 6:45 pm. Shaking Crab was one of the few places that had any availability in the area on this night and we were excited to eat there. When we arrived, the place was CLOSED! How was I able to make a reservation for a restaurant that wasn't even open? This was upsetting as now we had to scramble to find another dinner place on one of the busiest nights of the year.

We made a reservation that was confirmed - but the restaurant never opened up. No message and no one answering the phone. Very disappointed

Unfortunately have to give this experience a 1 star, as the experience didn't happen. I made a reservation for 4:45pm, in case they were busy as it was a holiday week. When we showed up for the reservation we were surprised to find the restaurant was not open and all the lights were off, even though the website, hours posted in the door, and Open Table said they opened at 4pm. I completely we understand we are still in the middle of a global pandemic but do wish there was some type of notice the restuarant was closed prior to being able to make the reservation and show up at the restaurant to locked doors. Perhaps your best option is to call prior to making the reservation online to ensure they are open.

Shaking Crab has gone downhill each time we try it. We tried it in Boston Amazing!! Newton location worse. So we thought we would try the new location in Foxboro as a double date.

1.) They took at-least 15-20 minutes with our drinks and the place is small!

2.) They didn't have few beers on the menu because they didn’t have the tap installed..but didn't have it crossed out.

3.) They again didn't have a lot of the food / sides on the menu. Was so disappointing!

I pre read a review and agree this location opened up earlier than they should've.

For a seafood place you need to make sure you have what your selling on the menu. Was so disappointing probably our last time trying Shaking Crab since each time the experience get worse every time.

Was almost embarrassed we brought a couple we like on a double date here.

Please try harder for future customers!
