Summary

“Chaotic” service can add to the “buzzy” sense of “mania” at these fun (and kid-friendly) crab shacks, where the lobster, shrimp and other fare come in “massive portions”; there’s quite a feeling, though, that the less established Covent Garden branch “isn’t a patch on Chelsea”.

Summary

Chelsea’s long-established and “fun” US-style ‘crab shack’ now has a Covent Garden outpost; the new branch has its fans (“like I was back in New Orleans!”), but expansion seems to have strained standards overall – some “awful” meals have been recorded in both locations of late.

Summary

“New Orleans was never closer!”; in the face of all the upstart competition, this ever-“lively” Chelsea surf ’n’ turf shack still offers “excellent ribs and burgers, and other stuff that isn’t too healthy either”, plus the “best-value” lobster in town.
