Crab Shack Recommendation

We are staying in Delray Beach and looking for a rustic crab shack (like Monty's).

        The name fits the rec request perfectly!

      2. Here is an updated link to Riggin's. I love the place, it's like stepping back in time!

        Another option would be J&J at

        I don't think either is like Monty's but both are good!

          Your reco's are usually spot on, LiveRock.

          But anyone looking for a "Rustic Crab Shack" who then walked into J&J, would surely think they'd been given the wrong address!

          It's good, fresh seafood indeed.

          But I think you will agree, it is most definitely neither rustic nor a crab shack.

            The OP mentioned Monty's which is not even close to a "Rustic Crab Shack" in my mind. I figured I'd give him a couple of options.
