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, water views and an extensive menu consisting of casual, satisfying seafood and other fare. Start with the half dozen top neck clams on the half shell. For a hot appetizer go for the sautéed Maryland crab cake. Main courses to consider include rainbow trout and stuffed filet of sole with lobster sauce.
