With so many great seafood restaurants in the area, it is a shame this place is so bad. I honestly don’t know how you can ruin clam chowder but it was the worst tasting clam chowder I’ve ever experienced. Very bland and tasteless. My 10...More

While staying at Oceanside Beachfront RV Park, we had the pleasure of eating at the Crab Shack at the front of the RV park. They are only open Friday - Sunday. We loved the fish and chips and the shrimp cocktails.
