  • Delicious
  • Not a seafood fancy; but their "medium spicy shrimp shabang" absolutely delicious ! Don't miss the tasty cajun fries !
  • Not good for hungr people cause it takes time to remove the shells I LOVE IT
  • Be careful not to get any of the sauce in your eye while you're peeling/nomming! >_<
  • Yummmy loved the king crab legs and the cajun chillli fried
  • Remove your rings and watches, Prepare yourselves for the great delicious mess, totally worth it we got the shrimps and king crab legs with their signature shabang and mild spice .. Unforgettable
  • Go for the Shrimp Whole Shebang with Cajun fries
  • Cajun fries. ALWAYS GET THEM.
  • Wait time on a Saturday night is at least an 1hr 30mins. Come prepared or walk across the street to 7/11 and grab a small snack to tie you down if yiu're starving.
  • This location was much larger and cleaner than the other boiling crab. The spice is hotter than normal, but everything was fresh, tasty, and quick! Nice service too. Will be back!
  • Had the King Crab legs and Potatoes and Corn all in Garlic Butter sauce. It was fantastic. The best meal I have had in years. Would go back again and again.
  • Hands will get super messy but completely worth it. Definitely try the crabs, shrimps, fries & corn. All amazing, complete with attentive and patient service!
  • Even "medium" is very hot hot hot
  • Even "medium" is very hot
  • The whole shabang
  • Don't jump!
  • Terrible seafood! Trying to hide behind spice won't cover up the terrible quality. Pass.
  • Another run of the mill franchise seafood spot...don't waste money or time!!
