Crabshakk

Crabshakk Review

This place is anything but a shack. The intimate dining room has heavy wooden tables and chairs and a bar so shiny and inviting that it seems to almost insist you have a drink. The lamps are like half-moons, and the ceiling is elegantly ornate. Mirrors make the place feel bigger, though it's fine the way it is. The food comes from the sea—oysters, lobster, and squid—and you can have your choice served iced, grilled, roasted, or battered. The fish sandwich and crab cakes (no fillers, just the real stuff) are favorites on the lunch menu. In the evening, mussels and scallops draw the eye. Only local and sustainably sourced Scottish seafood is featured. The buzz of conversation and the perfectly modulated music creates the right atmosphere.
