Take a look at what people have been saying about Jersey Crab Shack.

  • After we ate in the Oyster Box the previous night, we thought we would try the Jersey Crab Shack. With a G&T and a pint of Mary Ann, we tucked into the fish and chips. Yummy fantastic fish and lovely chips. This place has a great atmosphere and the staff are cool and happy.

  • As locals whenever our friends visit from the mainland, its a must that they visit the Jersey Crab Shack. A family friendly restaurant serving fresh Jersey seafood as well as popular other foods, situated directly on the sea front in St. Brelade’s Bay, it makes for a lovely dining experience. A view over the whole bay, children catered for. Willing staff , large car park opposite restaurant. Busy atmosphere.

  • Loved this place. Great food and service. Our best meal during a 4 day visit to Jersey. Relaxed atmosphere and very good for gluten free.

  • What a find, bang on the foreshore and with easy parking. The place is relaxed, friendly and a touch quirky. The menu is exciting and varied. Seafood absolutely the star of the show – Jersey crab taco and fresh oysters, simply delicious. Wish we’d found Jersey Crab Shack sooner as would without hesitation return to work through the rest of the menu!

  • Jersey Crab Shack is a fantastic place to enjoy a relaxed meal with a spectacular view across the bay. The food here is great and offers a wide variety all of which taste incredible. My personal recommendation would be the whole Jersey Chancre crab!

  • After a morning stroll around the coast path from Rozel, we stopped at Jersey Crab Shack Gorey for lunch. Mid week and the first ones in. What a treat. Food so fresh and the best crispy squid I’ve ever had. Didn’t stop for pudding, too eager to dip our toes in the receding tide but thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.

  • Wandered down the prom from our hotel in search of an evening meal… Jersey Crab Shack is popular, so worth reserving a table in advance. Cauliflower fritters – a new one to try, delicious. The fresh Jersey crab tacos are also excellent and not too spicy.

     

    Kevin L - TripAdvisor 25 Oct 2016

  • Came across this brilliant restaurant with our friends during our weekend stay, we had the most delicious lunch – fresh oysters, olives, bread and crab linguine to die for, washed down with delicious wine. Could have stayed forever just taking in the beautiful views. Brilliant place.

  • Jersey crab is the best tasting crab I’ve ever had and together with their other seafood delights, Jersey Crab Shack is the place to eat. Right on the beach, service is excellent. Great atmosphere and very friendly servers.

     

    Pamela L - TripAdvisor 15 Sep 2016

  • Such a great place & what a view. We’ve been to Jersey Crab Shack twice now & will continue to visit each time we are in Jersey. Atmosphere very good & food excellent. Also the staff are really nice & so helpful.

  • I didn’t just eat at the Jersey Crab Shack once, but five times in the space of 48 hours and always opted for the crab tacos, curried cauliflower fritters with mango chutney, truffle parmesan-scented chips and a glass of Côtes de Provence. Beach-side heaven.

     

    Amy Hopkinson - Women's Health Magazine 24 Aug 2016

  • Service was excellent, our waitress was great with the kids and really helpful with a few changes we asked for. Food was lovely, very well presented and super tasty – clean plates all round even from the 11 year old who had the adult spare ribs!

     

    nahill17 - TripAdvisor 05 Sep 2016

  • The chef’s passion is evident in all the dishes we tried; freshly prepared, beautiful oysters, crisp battered squid, cooked to perfection, seafood linguine; the best I’ve ever had. The desserts were delicious.

     

    Paul_denbigh - TripAdvisor 24 Aug 2016

  • We have been to the Jersey Crab Shack a few times now and it is always consistently excellent. Very well priced with a good menu. Seafood is fantastic – I had some great oysters on our last visit, my partner had beautifully cooked tempura king prawns in with a sweet chilli dip and my seafood linguine was superb.

     

    Pete D - TripAdvisor 23 Aug 2016

  • Delicious food in wonderful location. Great menu and very nice staff. Will eat there every time we are on the island.

     

    306tony - TripAdvisor 11 Aug 2016

  • Lovely environment, great food and a fair price coupled with good service. We were taken to The Jersey Crab Shack by friends and the whole experience was enjoyable. Would be delighted to go back again.

     

    Dave B - TripAdvisor 03 Aug 2016

  • Great food and great service in a friendly, laid back atmosphere. Seafood linguine highly recommended by my friend. The burger I had was huge – and the chips with it are fabulous. It’s very popular with locals, so book ahead if you can. 5-star!

     

    xydancer - TripAdvisor 03 Aug 2016

  • I rate both the Jersey Crab Shacks – excellent food, reasonably priced, terrific service… the outside tables on the promenade are just the best! Enjoy!

     

    Edward M - TripAdvisor 26 Jul 2016

  • We had the Island seafood platter which was just what we were looking for, beautiful seafood (crabs claws, prawns, gambas, smoked salmon) simply served with glass of chilled rose in a relaxed atmosphere. Great view too!

     

    Anna I - TripAdvisor 24 Jul 2016

  • The service is amazing, could not fault the amazing staff. The food was just to die for. The place itself was so well decorated and fits in well with the theme of the sea and ocean. It was the best restaurant I have been to EVER.

     

    Reece M - TripAdvisor 19 Jul 2016

  • Lovely lunch seated outside with the sight & sounds of the ocean and the sun on our backs. Laid back lunching, attentive staff, beautiful view. Delicious crab (Jersey Chancre). Perfect!

     

    Swmum12 - TripAdvisor 12 Jul 2016

  • Great family restaurant on the beach, food served quickly and friendly staff. Great atmosphere for families, for dates or just a bottle of wine on a summers night.

     

    Karen M - TripAdvisor 07 Jul 2016

  • Great food, great views, great location and great value. Children’s menu very nice and the seafood was fantastic and fresh.

     

    Simon G - TripAdvisor 15 Jun 2016

  • Fab location, fab food, fab restaurant. It gets busy so book! On a beautiful sunny day it was the perfect place for a relaxed family lunch.

     

    Yakkydik - TripAdvisor 06 Jun 2016

  • The Crab Shack menu is quite rightly an ode to the crab – every dish designed to bring out the best in local seafood.

     

    YarisScotland - TripAdvisor 01 Jun 2016

  • I have visited the Crab Shack twice this week for my stay and both times it was fantastic. The crab is fresh and flavoursome, the squash risotto was fantastic and the brûlée was beautiful. Be sure to book, but it’s well worth the reservation!

     

    emsiejj - TripAdvisor 27 May 2016

  • Lunch on the terrace in the sunshine, overlooking the beach. Had an amazing, local, crab salad which was so fresh, it was a wonderful place to be.

     

    jmarmite - TripAdvisor 09 May 2016

  • A favourite haunt whenever we visit Jersey. Stunning views over the Castle and port at Gorey. Tasty food featuring many local island seasonal ingredients, fish and shellfish especially good. Good wine list, good for families too. Small outdoor terrace to soak up the view and sunshine.

     

    JerseyBean007 - TripAdvisor 01 May 2016

  • We were recommended the restaurant by a friend. Booking is highly recommended as this is a very popular restaurant. The food was really good, atmosphere relaxed and views over the bay stunning. Well worth a visit.

     

    JayandRachelB - TripAdvisor 25 Apr 2016

  • Had to visit the Crab Shack after recommendations from a friend who lives in Jersey. Delicious, no need to say more, partner impressed he could get Bass beer! It’s a must visit place!

     

    wendydix - TripAdvisor 25 Apr 2016

  • Every time we come to Jersey we always have lunch at the Crab Shack. The fish is always fresh and excellently cooked. The wine list is good and service is excellent.

     

    condernash - TripAdvisor 24 Apr 2016

  • Good food and relaxed atmosphere – right by the beach. Plenty of opportunity to relax and watch all that’s going on!

     

    scotswhahey57 - TripAdvisor 13 Apr 2016

  • The best casual fish restaurant on the island! A lovely seaview table, best way to enjoy the beach. Quality food at an affordable price.

     

    TravellingTitan - TripAdvisor 03 Apr 2016

  • Delightful setting on the beach and always made very welcome by helpful staff. Great selection of fresh Jersey produce, and a real delight to crack your way through huge freshly caught Chancre crabs or lobster with a nice bottle of something to suit. Always visit every time we visit the island. The Crab Shack is one of the those places that is suitable for a celebratory meal or just to pop in and enjoy good food!

     

    BobG8386 - TripAdvisor 25 Mar 2016

  • One of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had! Very friendly staff, incredible food, brilliant atmosphere, 10/10!

     

    Alex M - TripAdvisor 06 Mar 2016

  • Visiting Jersey for the first time, we went to the Crab Shack in Gorey for a Sunday lunch. We came especially to try the crab linguine and that was such a good choice! It was so tasty. The tiramisu for pudding was very good as well. Great food, with a great view and nice staff!

     

    Odile-Andy - TripAdvisor 01 Mar 2016

  • Lovely easy atmosphere and good food for all ages (ours was 7-85). Fabulous to look out over St. Brelade’s Bay on a sunny but wintry day.

     

    Rosemary N - TripAdvisor 28 Feb 2016

  • Make sure you give this a go… And don’t forget to book! Delicious food in a casual and friendly environment. We went for the crab salad and was not disappointed. Plenty of crab and the combination of lettuce, avocado, seeds and sweetcorn was perfect.

     

    Sarah P - TripAdvisor 21 Feb 2016

  • This restaurant overlooks the beach and is a perfect spot for a relaxed meal whether day or evening. The food is good with an emphasis on seafood.

     

    Cathryn L - TripAdvisor 13 Jan 2016

  • The Crab Shack continues to impress. Great menu, friendly helpful staff and good atmosphere. The restaurant is in a lovely position at the end of the bay, a cheaper option to its sister next door, the Oyster Box.

     

    Jerseylily22 - TripAdvisor 07 Jan 2016

  • I make sure to visit the Crab Shack every time I return to Jersey… consistently good service, tasty food, interesting/varied specials list. Perfect to sit outside and soak up the sun on a warm day.

     

    tlc56789 - TripAdvisor 29 Oct 2015

  • We visit Jersey every year and always make a point of visiting this great venue. Staff are great, food great and wonderful view.

     

    Susan H - TripAdvisor 11 Oct 2015

  • We finished our Jersey holiday with a meal at the crab shack. Food was superb. Service was quick and efficient. Reasonably priced. With the added bonus of great views over the bay. See you next year.

     

    Roberta H - TripAdvisor 09 Sep 2015

  • Sat outside… what a view! Sipping Prosecco, with a great menu, great service, menu for all palates… salads, fish, vegetarian, home made burgers… all wonderful.

     

    nikki a - TripAdvisor 10 Jul 2015

  • Great food, fantastic friendly and attentive service at good prices. Can’t wait until our next visit.

     

    Cohech - TripAdvisor 18 May 2015

  • Have eaten here on more than one occasion. Food is always good and very fresh, service is friendly and the location is great. Tables outside are great on a nice day. Wouldn’t hesitate taking family and friends there. Will be back soon.

     

    dislodgedlemon - TripAdvisor 19 Apr 2015

  • Great place, very cool and laid back we like the style and its approach… another great establishment by JP Restaurants!

     

    Tom29bobby - TripAdvisor 17 Mar 2015

  • We went here twice for lunch over the Christmas period. A very relaxed restaurant where we were made to feel very welcome. A good choice of food for both adults and children. The seafood linguine is highly recommended.

     

    DevonBlueboy - TripAdvisor 29 Dec 2014

  • We were recommended the Crab Shack and we were very impressed. Fresh fish cooked beautifully and quite simply with some Jersey Royals. A seaside café environment with one of the best situations on the sea wall. It is a ‘must’ and they like children!

     

    nmercer - TripAdvisor 26 Oct 2014

  • Great food and atmosphere and very reasonably priced, accomodated a large party very well, easy access and lovely open air feel.

     

    Dawn H - TripAdvisor 06 Aug 2014

  • Food was fresh, well presented and tasty. Staff were attentive and pleasant. View overlooking the beach with the tide coming in ended the evening very well.

     

    DonnieAmsterdam - TripAdvisor 18 Jun 2014

  • My fiancé and I ate here last night and it was fantastic. The staff were all incredibly friendly and the food was delicious. I am gluten intolerant and for the first time in a long time I had an amazing range of options. My fritto misto was cooked beautifully and his tacos looked amazing. Sadly we were too full for pudding but will definitely be back!

     

    Rachael E - TripAdvisor 22 Mar 2014

  • The only reason for not going to the Crab Shack in Gorey is if you can’t get a table. It serves great food (fresh, interesting, top quality ingredients), presented informally but not casually. The restaurant has a nice seaside ambience and the service is friendly and efficient. Whilst eating you also get matchless views of Mont Orgeuil and the bay and all this for prices that are thoroughly reasonable.

     

    JonathanWalkerJersey - TripAdvisor 13 Feb 2014

  • My favourite view… My favourite place to eat.

  • Just love this place – wish it was here in Edinburgh and with the weather.

     

    D.H. Crab Shack Facebook post 01 Oct 2013

  • Superbly sited on the beachfront; sit in a cosy booth or on a bench outside. Accessible modern dishes of prime island produce, with seafood a speciality.

     

    Michelin Guide 2013 01 Jan 2013

  • Laid-back, friendly restaurant with a decked terrace and superb views over the harbour.

     

    Michelin Guide 2013 01 Jan 2013

  • You’re guaranteed a superb meal in relaxed surroundings on the seafront at the Crab Shack. Be sure to book, however, as it’s well known on the island.  It’s the sort of place where you can come in trailing sand from the superb beach just across the road.

     

    Bill Breeze, Telegraph Travel 11 Sep 2011

  • Loved this place! Right on the beach on a sunny day… doesn’t get much better! Excellent service too. Very impressed.

     

    Walshydarling 18 Sep 2013

  • Whilst visiting Jersey I went in alone to the Crab Shack (my husband was at work) – far from being shuffled into a small out of the way table for one, I was put in a table right in the window and then had brilliant service and an absolutely delicious lunch.

     

    Sarah 21 Sep 2013

  • Went here for a birthday lunch on a beautiful summers day, sat outside and enjoyed the amazing view, could have sat here for hours. There were 5 of us and we all ordered different meals all of which were lovely and fresh and very tasty.

     

    Secret luncher 07 Oct 2013

  • We have eaten here twice recently and it is fantastic. The staff are so helpful and accommodating and the food is exceptional! We ate outside and it was a lovely ambience.

     

    Paula 08 Oct 2013

  • Beautiful setting, fantastic food & nice welcoming staff. My advice is a whole crab, large glass of wine & an hour looking out to sea. Perfect.

     

    Elliot B 12 Oct 2013

  • Excellent! We have just come back from a short stay in Jersey. First night was the Oyster Box (very good) and the last night the Crab Shack. It is worthy of note that on the first day we walked along the front and past both restaurants and the Crab Shack was heaving – always a good sign.
