Our favorite spot for fresh, ice cold, plump Apalachicola (Gulf) Oysters is the Crab Shack. The Crab Shack isn't fancy. Located on Gandy Boulevard on the northern fringe of St Pete, it's a come in your shorts, gator-heads-hanging-over-the-bar, kind of place. There's a full bar, but the atmosphere is definitely family friendly. They also have yummy peel-n-eat shrimp, in-season grouper, a spicy gumbo, and deliciously sautéed blue crab claws. For fresh fish in a casual, Florida atmosphere do not miss the Crab Shack.
