Went for the first time with my friends. Everything was AMAZING! The ambiance is super cute and the staff is so attentive. Ordering was so quick and easy. Food was delicious. I would highly recommend to support such a wonderful business.
Worth the walk, worth the wait, worth the convincing my friends to come back with me and have some for themselves, worth them approving. Everytime I go to New York I'm finding an excuse to keep coming back here!
Two words: Clobster. Roll. When I tell you that thang was thangin... my word. I've had tons of lobster rolls and crab rolls, but never a combo of the two (crab on one end, lobster on the other)! It was truly incredible.

“A Shrine to The Crustacean” – The New York Times
Growing up in Philadelphia, celebrity stylist Fifi Bell-Clanton had no shortage of options when it came to getting her crab fix. But after moving to Brooklyn, she was dismayed to discover that if she wanted freshly steamed Blue crab, Dungeness crab, or Alaskan Snow crab she had to go to a fish market and cook it herself. She found a kindred spirit in record label exec Gwen Woods, whose father is from the Chesapeake Bay area, so even though neither had run a restaurant before, they teamed up and opened The Crabby Shack in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood in 2014.
The bright and friendly Crabby Shack has since become a cornerstone of the community, serving up super-fresh crab and lobster rolls, spicy steamed shrimp, crab mac & cheese, and a variety of fresh crabs steamed in beer and dunked in their famous seasoned garlic butter. Brooklyn’s best crabs are now shipping nationwide!
