Both came with this sauce that was icing on the cake. That was really all it tasted like and the crackers it came with. I think those were good choices. I have been to the Crab Shack before a few times and so I decided to go with what I already knew was good. The first night was terribly disappointing.
The Crabby Charlie Sandwich was delicious - the best of many things; crab cake, fried green tomato, pimento cheese and bacon. The crab dip was so creamy and smooth. Overall, the food was delicious and we both ate all of our food. I didn't mind it too much but it could be too dark for some people. He really liked them; I don't eat mushrooms but tasted a little of the stuffing and it was good.
The shrimp and grits was good. Came with 2 sides and we chose creamy cole slaw and red potatoes. We got the crab dip for an appetizer it was okay tasted a like mustard. They also served the crab legs with melted butter. My wife and I got married in charleston and were down there for one week.
I'd call this visit a complete failure if it weren't for that. My last food review stated the food was too bland. Didn't go without seeing him for maybe 5 minutes at a time. The she crab soup was a little salty but adding lemon juice fixed that and it was delicious!!! Could have eaten it for dinner; there was enough for 4-6 so we brought home. I did enjoy the crab dip and pita bread.
We even got a huge order to take back to the house to eat later. The frozen drinks were really good but very sweet. She crab soup is the best. I wish I had gotten more of them but that's okay. The Alaskan Snow Crab clusters tasted incredibly fresh and tender.
Rum Punch was requested which is not on the menu and Halley made sure it was perfect. Also got crab dip free and shared the She-Crab soup. The photos were made into the table. The service was great also. Customer service was spot on though.
The outside sitting area was nice. Crabby and crunchy on the outside. We added a side of collards that were perfectly seasoned with a little kick. Atmosphere was chill, very close to the beach so lots of people in their bathing suits. Had a nicer and friendly waiter.
