Nauti Cajun Crab
Nauti Cajun Crab is all about serving up the freshest seafood in a fun atmosphere! 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.

Had an amazing time with great food and even conversations
We had reserved outdoor dining but when we arrived there were no tables available, why reserve? Food was good, shared bucket for3-4 people, certainly plenty to eat. Noise level was pretty loud, mostly due to music. I would go again.
Service was great atmosphere great Food very tasteful especially the fried calamari Money was well worth it
Waiter, Vinnie was inattentive and didn’t bother to come and do a midpoint check in, regardless how busy it got or short staffed it may have been. Manager came to the table and looked at our meal which wasn’t mostly eaten and said, “oh, you looked like you enjoyed your meal”. I replied yes, but then kindly complained about our lack of attentiveness from our waiter which he then explained about being short staffed. Well, if you’re short staffed then we should have seen the manager more on the floor helping out but he wasn’t. So how short staffed were you? Then it appears our meal was over-priced. We chose the feast for two, but may have been charged for the feast for 4, since after all, we wouldn’t have known because it was “market price”. Very disappointed in the service, but the food was good. Would have to think twice if ever going back due to lack of service. Even after all of that, I still tipped my server for my portion, but my friend whom I split the bill with, did not.
Great atmosphere and delicious food each time I've visited! I'll be back again!
2nd time dining here. Usually order for pick up. But it was 3 adults and 3 children. I was displeased with the service. It was a busy Saturday evening and not only did our waiter take forever to finally come to us, he was like that the ENTIRE night. While all other servers were moving quickly and tending to their tables, ours was moving as slow as a turtle. He came once and “decided to just check on us” as he says. We had to get a toss bucket ourself from another table because we were tired of waiting on him. A $300 bill later we realize tip was already included and therefore, probably why he didn’t care to wait on us. We watched many tables come after us and leave before us. I had to flag him down for the bill. Then flag him down again just to come get it. By then it was already 9pm and clearing out so he wasn’t that busy. He would come from outside and not even look our way. I was displeased to say the least and will probably just continue to order for pick up only.
We ordered bucket for 2. Added clams and muscles. Everything was delicious and fresh. Shrimp taco appetizer was outstanding. Great price.
Food was amazing- lot of fun to crack your own crabs enjoy a variety of other seafood. Great experience!
Ate here back in March we loved it. My son loved it so much he wanted to have his 12th birthday at Nauti. Literally talked about it every week lol. So we had his birthday dinner last night 7/24, and he said it was the best birthday ever! My mother in law and mom were both very impressed with everything! My son said it was the best birthday ever! Looking forward to returning again soon.
Great place to eat with family an friends the food if fantastic
Had a great time. Reservations were for 5:30pm on a Friday. I got there a few minutes early and was seated right away. The other person in my party was running late but it wasn’t an issue. The food was great. Our waiter Steve was exceptional. We opted to sit outside and it was such a cool vibe. I’ll definitely be back. The only downside is open table said I didn’t meet my reservation when I in fact did make my reservation.
Food was good. I had one if the seafood boil bags the first time I went. It was amazeballs. This time I did the garlic butter wings but the garlic tasted burnt. We also had the Dungeness crab and garlic noodles. Some of the crabs were dry. But every thing else was amazing.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent! They have some nice seating areas, but where we were sitting was out in the open. It is near the entrance, which is a bit distracting. The outside seating looks great. Would definitely try that next time. Overall, I will definitely be going back AND recommending it to other people!
The waiter who take care us excellent guy.
Best seafood boil.
Seafood didn’t seem fresh at all. Service was very sllw
Always great seafood and they have the best garlic noodles .
My party of four really enjoyed ourselves. Loved the food loved the ambience.
Very slow service; we have to let the busboys know that we were waiting for our server.
Food was good. Service was fair. Our server was doing double duty as hostess and sever. I will definitely return.
Great food! The service was excellent. The recommendations our server made were on point!

This was a birthday celebration for my husband, which no one made at Nauti Cajun mentioned. The food we good. Our experience was ok.
Always great food and great service. I've been coming to Nauti Cajun Crab for a long time now and their food is the best
Birthday celebration. Was in the mood for crabs and heard this is the spot for crabs. We got the sea festival and it was a seafood paradise. The honey buffalo wings were surprising very good. Definitely recommend.
The service was phenomenal. I couldn't believe there were 2 people serving the whole restaurant and the waiting for food was fast. Great job! I will be back.
Mild is not mild it has a spice to it. When they were shocking oysters they broke some of the shell inside of it
Food was amazing, def worth the money and not too expensive. I left feeling full and satisfied.
Pleasant experience food was same as most of these crab boil places . The shrimp tacos were delicious.
Service was fast prompt and on point
