Seafood

We now accepting reservation for outdoor and indoor dining.

We take great pride in providing a friendly and vibrant atmosphere for our guests to enjoy our delicious seafood, live crawfish, crispy wings and our popular seafood fried rice and garlic noodles. We take the "traditional Creole seafood boil" to the next level. We boil our crawfish and seafood with classic Louisiana style spices along with our own secret blend of spices then top it off with your choice of one of our mouth-watering flavors. After establishing a popular seafood boil in New Jersey since 2016, we are excited to bring our concept to Metuchen with even better seasonings and guest experience.

We've been to other crab boil restaurants in New Jersey, but none were as good as this. The selection of seafood to put into the boil was large and had something for every budget. We will definitely be returning. The restaurant is BYOB which I like so I can bring my own wine.

Nauti Cajun Crab was highly rated so I made reservations for an early Mother’s Day dinner with my mom. I must say the entire experience was truly excellent. The food was DELICIOUS and at a decent price point. The service was OUTSTANDING (Vincent was an AWESOME server. Knowledgeable and was able to give us really great recommendations since it was our first time there). There’s a real TEAM feeling there. Each table has their own server but throughout your time at Nauti Cajun Crab, you will witness the other servers coming around to be helpful. It was a nice touch. It’s a BYOB establishment. Definitely try their lemonade and passion fruit drinks….DEE-LISH! Not too tart, not too sweet….just right! My only suggestion is please make reservations. We had dinner around 4pm and the crowd followed. We had to squeeze ourselves out the door. Definitely WORTH it! Definitely going back!

Prices are higher than other Cajun style seafood places in the area/NYC. But the main reason for it not getting 5 stars was the 20 minute wait, with an open table reservation. It was my first time not having a table when booking with this app, at any restaurant.

The restaurant itself was a little loud, but that's just my personal opinion. The service was subpar. Staff may need a re-training, it was almost awkward to speak with our waiter or the hostess. I believe I only saw my waiter 3 times total, if that. But again the food was really. The restaurant itself was very nice. The open concept did make it loud, I'm not a fan of that, but that should not dissuade you from trying it. Yes the staff was a bit rough, but it could have been the members I was dealing with.

It seems the best food choices are the complete dinners that start at $95.00. While there were other choices, they weren't exciting and the salmon I ordered was over cooked and dried out and I didn't care for the ginger sauce. The garlic noodles were good, as we the crab fries and calamari. Be forewarned, the spicy sauces are very spicy--you might prefer the mild sauces.

My husband and I decided to book a reservation to try this place out based on the online reviews. Once we got there and were seated and downloaded the menu, we were amazed at how pricey the food was. But we decided to give it a try. We ordered the crispy wings with garlic butter and a seafood dish for $219 for 2 people, also made with garlic butter sauce. I must say, the wings were really a perfect crisp. But there was absolutely no seasoning to those wings whatsoever. Very, very, very bland. And the garlic and butter did not help. No flavor. Then, for the enormous seafood boil, It definitely was a lot that you received for the price. Unfortunately, it was not tasty at all. I cook a lot of food with garlic and butter. And it makes the food. But, their version of garlic and butter was not in the least bit tasty. We ended up taking a lot of the food home. Our kids tried it, and it was a no for them, too. And we are seafood fanatic in our home. This place is a no-go for my family. At the end of the night, we wasted $289.00 on food that was not tasty at all. Our waiter was great, though. And the music was awesome with the visuals.

We enjoyed the Sea Festival 3-4 people with clams and shrimp as the additional seafood items. It’s BYOB so we brought a bottle of white wine to accompany this delicious meal. The proprietor took time to visit our table and speak with us at length about his vision, secret process and upcoming delivery options which we can’t wait to take advantage of. We were able to take home leftovers which will be combined with that incredible sauce (Nauti Cajun flavors with Medium spice level) to make a pasta dish at home. We’ll be going back for our birthday in March and look forward to again enjoy wonderful seafood experience at this establishment.

If you have a large party, best to get the back area, so you can get all the room. BYOB and you can bring in cakes for any occasion. Make sure if you have some spice heads in your group, get the Cajun Hot or Extra Spicy!
