The Crab Shack

$$$$

40 Estill Hammock Rd, Tybee Island
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Originally a laid-back fish camp on the water, a couple from Atlanta purchased the property in 1983 and made it what it is today: The Original Crab Shack. Tables sit underneath a gnarled tree, providing some much-needed shade to enjoy super fresh local seafood like deviled crab and stew, Lowcountry boil, and boiled peel-and-eat shrimp. And if you time things right, you might run into an aspiring pirate, in town for an annual Buccaneer Ball that’s been in a bunch of TV shows and movies. The restaurant also carries Leopold’s ice cream and key lime pie.
