Unrivaled Tybee Ambience by Bud R. at InsiderPages
The Crab Shack has quickly transitioned from a local hangout to major tourist attraction. It has an alligator pond, and you may purchase gator food to keep the kids busy if you have to wait for a table. Most dining is outside, among the live oaks, with thousands of tiny lights overhead, and actual fire pits of burning logs on chilly nights. The food quality is generally excellent, but on occasion, the side dishes might be cooler than you hope. They serve several varieties of crab, oysters, and barbeque, but specialize in Ophelia, and Low Country Boil dishes. A full bar is also available, with excellent mixed drinks. What makes this place unique is the look and feel of the vast outside dining area. In cold or inclement weather, the inside area is used, and is a bit breezy since the open sides are covered with heavy plastic tarps as needed. The gift shop is populated with several parrots who will keep you entertained while you browse. You can learn more at their website: www.thecrabshack.com.
