Nauti Cajun Crab
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.

Nauti Crab is a perfect place to celebrate Christmas Eve with your families and friends. We have a variety of amazing seafood combos.
One of the few restaurants that I’m willing to drive out of my way for. The food is amazing and service is very good.
The garlic noodles have such a strong flavor they were hard to eat. You must really love the taste of raw garlic to truly enjoy them. Felt there could be more sauce in the create your own bucket. The service was very good. Friendly. BYO*
The food is delicious, the service has always been exceptional and the ambiance perfect. Always a good time and party atmosphere !!
The food was great, and the take home will be even better to continue this experience of our 1 year anniversary dating
I used to love this place. It was fresh, value was worth the price. I was very dissatisfied the last 2x I came here. It’s time to find a new spot.
Food was great server was accommodating my kids loved the music and was fun
The food was okay . My issue is they give you the baskets with not much sauce huge uncut potatoes and the corn is not seasoned as well. The Appetizer wings was not cooked well .
incredible first time experience, and it made such an impression upon us we will certainly return to try more of their menu. The selections will satisfy any seafood lover especially those of shellfish and the sauces are incredibly flavorful only adding to the experience. The place itself is clean and inviting with these great nooks in the front windows allowing you to sit apart from the main dining floor and enjoy watching the foot-traffic pass by downtown. We were given praise worthy service by Mark who not only helped us with our selection but with the variety of sauces and heat signatures available for the meal. He was attentive, friendly and extremely helpful in making our first visit to the Nauti Cajun not be our last. Service left an amazing impression on us as did the quality of our meal. The crabs were fresh, they cracked open with ease unlike some other restaurants who sell similar fare. The clams and mussels were full and flavorful with a side of garlic noodles that alone tasted delicious but once soaked in some of the broth put it over the top. Here's hoping the Nauti Cajun continues to build it's fan base and to stand the test of time, for it's in an area where so many restaurants seem to come and go. Take the time to try out a lunch or dinner here soon and share your experience with family and friends, I think they'll be just as impressed.
We had been here a few times. This time it took 20mins for us to get a waiter to our table. My husband had to go, and talk to the manager. If you ask why we didn’t just leave, it’s because the food is so good.
We did a create your own bucket. It was just as good as always. We had crawfish, shrimp with the head, lobster tail, and blue crab. We did the nauti sauce mild, with potatoes, corn, garlic noodles, the andouille sausage. Its byob so don’t forget your wine.
Seafood is fresh. Outside seating is great. Our server Vinny was amazing. Crab fries...are a must!
Great food, fast and friendly service
Very good food, it comes out promptly!! The waiters are very attentive!
The service was exceptional and the food was good.
We ordered the Sea lover combo and it came with an appetizer, garlic noodles, snow and dungeness crab clusters and we selected shrimp and fresh mussels. We got the Nauti Cajun medium sauce. Everything was amazing. Our server and the host were very attentive. Also, the combo came with 2 fresh made lemonade which was tasty and refreshing.
Delicious food and great service. I absolute love the quality and taste of their seafood.
We had the best dinner at this restaurant! We ordered the Feast and it was the best seafood meal we ever had! The flavors were amazing.
It will come as no surprise that Nauti Cajun Crab offers an amazing dining experience. The staff are wonderful, and a perfect complement to the incredible food. Every dish was a hit, portions and timing were perfect.
One of my favorites in the NJ. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
I found this place on google. We have similar Cajun food in Orlando but this one by far is best. The sauce is so good. I will return before my business trip end this week.
Delicious food always. Worth the money every time!!
The seafood was very good. The servings were generous. I liked that had outdoor seating. It was a cool night and they had heaters to keep the guests warm. We definitely would go back.
Our dinning experience was excellent. We hadn't dine out in a while and our friend recommended this restaurant. The food was delicious and service was good even though it was busy night. I highly recommend.
It is too expensive, and almost everything is market price and the owner kept changing price. I had read some reviews that the owner mentioned due to high food cost. I have been to similar type of other restaurant and don't see the daily market price change. My feeling is maybe the management has some difficulty to get qualify food with reasonable price? Lobster's taste is also very disappointed, flavor did not get in and it's chewy. Will not return.
We disagreed with your review completely. We offer high quality at a very fair market price. We do not want to change price and the profit margin is actually less now than before. Crabs legs are now high due to shortage of staff in supply chain and delivery. We don't use smaller crab legs size. Fresh Garlic was 64 per cases just last week and this past weekend it's $140. Supermarkets sell crab legs more expensive than us while we have to cook, serve and provide you with an amazing sauces.
The food was delicious. Service was great. We got to sit in the chairs that hang from the ceiling that i thought were pretty neat. Will definitely be back again!
First time, family loved it! The reviews on how good it was could not have been more true! Great time, great experience!
Definitely the best seafood boil I’ve ever had. Love the service and ambience.
The snow crab clusters were great and so was the lava cake. I would get a different add-on next time, the garlic noodles were meh for $7. I did like being able to customize my seafood bucket, and the price was reasonable for the bucket. The ambiance is nice and sitting by the window people watching was fun.
Fresh seafood and great Cajun taste.
Had a great time here for our family get together. We ordered the ultimate feast and it was the biggest bucket of seafood I’ve ever seen. Amazing experience, great food and great service.
The food was really great and service was nice
Great food and service. Took my wife on a date there last night. I definitely will be back
Sauce is so good and our sever was very nice and friendly.
My friends and I ordered the seafood bucket, honey buffalo wings, seafood rice and crab fries. All were so delicious. It was a fun experience and we will definitely be back.
Brought my wife here for our anniversary and she loved it!
Excellent food and service
Service was horrible!!! I still left a nice tip because that’s the right thing to do but the staff is very young and inexperienced!! I would not recommend dining in.
Second time there .. dinner was great both times will be back again
great service. absence simple. not fancy at all
food great, music great
food was good just my family said it was to much money for what you was served
It was very nice, and we had leftovers with brunch.
