Dog wearing a lobster bib during dinner at The Crab Shack. Too funny...
Crab Shack Tybee is dog friendly


The Crab Shack's motto is "Where The Elite Eat In Their Bare Feet!" You and your pooch are welcome to sit on the spacious deck overlooking the water, but not in the screened-in dining area. If you like seafood (which should be a prerequisite to coming here), order baby clams, oysters, snow crab, or Louisiana crawfish; if you like a little bit of everything, try Captain Crab's sampler platter or a low country boil with shrimp, potatoes, corn, and sausage.

    Our food and service was fantastic, as well as the atmosphere! Our pup was welcomed and brought a fresh bowl of water along side our own drinks.

    Good food. Had to ask waitress for a bowl of water for our pup. Cats scared our dog more than anything as they would hiss. If you are earthy this place might not be for you as everything is waste and they use styrofoam and disposable utensils for everything.

    Very dog friendly

    Waitress immediatel brought our Pekingese water and paid him the attention he believes he deserves. Food was great as was the service. Had lovely outdoor table overlooking water. Cats did not present any problem.

    Great place

    Buster was well welcomed . The waitress brought him water which he promtly knocked over lol. He sat in a chair beside me and ate chunks of sausage that I handed him . The waitress spoke to him every time she came by . Will definitely be going back .

    Beware of Cats

    The food was good and our dog was welcome but there were cats everywhere! Our dog is not a cat lover so it made for a tense meal.

    I must say the food was great and we had great service, but the staff didn't seem very happy about us having our dog. The waitress never even acknowledged the dog or brought it any water. I will eat here again I just think I will leave my dog at home .

    very friendly! m

    No worriea about having oyr large Alaskan malamute with us. Staff were very friendly and brought her water. She did lunge for their cat but they didnt seem to mind :-) at the emd of our meal (decent food, but all comes on polystyrene plates, bowls and cups which is a bit odd) she started to get a bit vocal and woo wooed a bit, no one batted an eyelid. Really nice view. There are also gators to see here in captivity. Great place for a family or couple or group

    Loved it

    We have eaten here a couple of times. The first time, on our honeymoon. Love the food. Last time we were there, the dolphins were playing out in the water. We didn't have our dog either time, but wouldn't mind taking her there...She would love the kitty cats (really, she thinks she is a cat)

    very unique restaurant, not fancy by any means, we ate out by the water, food was excellent & the staff was exceptional, will return again if our travels bring us that way!!!
