We love seafood - Especially Crab! The Crab Shack takes mostly walk in parties, but also has limited "soft reservations". A soft reservation can be made up to 3 months in advance and will ensure you are seated within about 5-15 minutes of your scheduled time.
Parking is fierce!
As a New England girl, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this an 8. :). And they had real full belly fried clams!
Not quite a New England crab shack, but for Rochester, its hard to beat.
Dave is the best waiter! Tip big!
The avocado fish tacos are excellent!
So yummy- but I wish they gave you a nice bonus for checking in!
Great bisque with shot of Sherry.
Changed menus! No more buckets/pails! Help! Change it back!
Delicious clam chowder
Okay so its not authentic New England seafood (take it from me I am from Masachusetts) but all in all it was pretty good
Looks nice but by far the worst food I have had in rochester
Steam pot #2 - clams didn't have much flavor but the crab legs were great! And the fried pickles are super tasty. Great service ( ask for Tony )
Go 15 - 20 minutes early if u have a reservation..They take a while to seat u regardless
Treat yourself to the Crab Lobster Bisque - don't fool around or second guess it. Treat yourself. (We just got a sample and basically licked it clean)
Go to Joe's Crab Shack if you really want crabs in this part of the world. This place is schizophrenic about what it wants to be.... And the food was hit and miss.
The applesauce is apple pie without the crust!
Food is excellent, we had 6 people in our party. Lobster pot pie was great, bisque with sherry was off the chain ( means really good), crab legs were good and lobster was excellent.
Lobster roll is amazing.
Don't miss the bisque. Outrageously good.
Food was a bit pricey but the service is great!
The best fresh, delicious, and healthy seafood. You will want to come back for more!
Haddock french was just ok. Homemade linguini was a little more than al dente, part of the haddock was undercooked but the waiter was great!
Awesome so far.just got done with our bbq bacon wrapped scallops.unbelievable.soo good.they come with a bacin ranch dip also
Portions are huge, but who doesn't love leftovers?!
Fra Diavlo is my new favorite , thanks to our waiter Barry for suggesting it.
Don't go by the menu on 4square. I don't know where it's from. I'm an employee and I stand by our work. Come see us!!
Great food and great fun!!
The crab lobster bisque & lobster roll brought me back to Cape Cod.... Delish!!!! :)
Sabrina was great!!! $10 crab pot was just enough. Will def come back
Buffalo crab dip :)
Clam chowder was hearty and delicious! Seafood paella, spicy but good. Fried calamari was ok. Free lemon sorbet helped cool down the tongue.
Try the seafood bisque. It is amazing.
Try the Dungeness Crab - Awesome! (via @Foodspotting)
They have a check in special, and a sticker on the lobster tank, but they have NO IDEA what Foursquare is or whether or not you "should" get a free dessert!
never disappointed here!!
Call ahead or you'll be waiting 60-90 minutes
Try the lobster & crab mac & cheese. You won't regret it!
Fire! Fire! S'mores are soooo fun!!
