Harden's survey result
This “whacky little space” in Finnieston with lots of nooks and crannies, and also perches to eat up at the counter, “consistently delivers fantastic, super-fresh fish and seafood, cooked and served with real passion”. Now in its tenth anniversary year, its legion of fans “absolutely love it” but be warned: it gets “really busy”.
A tiny Finnieston classic offering the “best seafood in the area” in a stylish if cramped setting; the menu covers pretty much everything under the sea (all “fab”) but it’s the daily specials, chalked up on the board, that are “really special – try them!”
“The eponymous crab is superb” (“the crab cakes are real crab cakes”), at this “tiny, noisy, cramped little bar off a busy Glasgow street”; it serves “a limited but excellent selection” of “awesomely good fresh fish” – “I’ve never been disappointed with anything off the tattered menu!”
“Hugely popular” and “exuberantly cheerful” West End spot universal praised for its “soul-restoring” seafood; OK, so it's “not THAT cheap”, but “the quality of the ingredients would preclude that” – and “it's so tiny that you feel quite triumphant getting a table!”
Crabshakk Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Really think this restaurant is resting on its laurels and using the excuse of fresh fish cooked simply to get away with doing very little. Whole crab was good, but served too cold and without bread - small pot of mayonnaise and some leaves were the only additions. Scallops were served in a searing hot skillet and continued cooking for some time - the chef couldn't have known they wouldn't be overcooked by the time we ate them. It was a starter sized meal served as a main course, with no vegetables or sides on the menu to enhance the fish."
