    We had the hot crab and artichoke dip, oysters, and the Double D crab sandwiches. They were all awesome. That crab sandwich is worth the trip back here. O M G!!!!

    I'm going to have to hop on the hate train here. This crab shack pumps out some really mediocre seafood -- over-cooked fish. You can do much better in the Charleston area.

    Sit at the outdoor counter & watch the world stroll by. Be sure the cook the hush puppies long enough. Ours were a bit doughy.

    Nasty, cold, and disappointing. Don't get stuck in this tourist trap. Don't know why you would continue to serve cold food after everyone around us was complaining.

    Service was very personable, and their crab dip with individually wrapped club crackers is SO worth it. Sit outside for some great people watching.

    Sit outside. Order something messy. Throw the spent shells and other refuse into the hole in the middle of the table. Great experience and good food.
