Crab Shell Restaurant Review

: If you've been to Malibu, Santa Monica or Balboa Island, you'll recognize the scene here: a fun and festive, kick-back kind of place with an energetic waitstaff, great water views and an extensive menu consisting of casual, satisfying seafood and other fare. The traditional lobster roll without mayonnaise is a welcome alternative to the usual mayonnaise saturated variety. The lobster meat takes center stage. Try the crab shells, a combination of shrimp, lobster, crab meat and scallops served with shell pasta in a cream-based sauce for a comprehensive sampling of all the seafood on offer.
