Snow Crab Legs
Snow crab, shrimp, crawfish, clams
Alaskan King Crab Legs
Cajun corn and shrimp basket was amazing. All the sangrias hit the spot.
I had my reservations about the place, but as soon as we stepped in the door the customer service and hospitality was top tier. It’s a little pricey but completely worth it. I will recommend the shaking crab to everyone. Thanks for the great experience.
Service was amazing. Definitely going back
We were late for our reservation and the staff was very accommodating! Will definitely be visiting again
The seafood taste fresh but the sauce. But the servers were overall nice and had amazing energy
I was expecting a little better portions for some of the pricing. Enjoyed the music and staff more than food.
Food excellent. Alcohol drink was weak.
Customer service very nice. Once brought to attention regarding the drink! I was ask did I want a shot on the house! That was awesome. I would most definitely referred my friends to eat at shaking Crab.
It was my 1st time here, I wanted seafood so bad and it’s like the universe knew cause this restaurant popped up… and it was amazing;-) the drinks, food and the price (a lil pricey) but ohhh so good
I loved it food was good service was excellent 👌😋 this was not my first time going and everytime I go I love it. Drinks are amazing as well. The different sauces are also Amazon. Furthermore everything is clean
Food was good and the service was great. Would recommend to everyone. Food and drinks are awesome
Very good the waiter made sure my husband and I had everything we needed. We can’t wait to go back.
Love this restaurant. Great service. Great food. My husband and I go every time
It would be nice if the music is not too loud so that we can have a better conversation with our friends on the table ,
Great birthday dinner for a friend
Food and drinks were amazing and I didn't have to wait hours for the food , it was a 10 mins wait🥰🥰🥰 Loved it , Loved it. Will go back soon 💖
I ordered for me and my daughter and the waitress put our food together. Not sure why. When I told her she quickly fixed it but then charge me for the mistake that they made. I gladly paid and even tipped 20 dollars but it would’ve been nice to have them take their mistake off of the bill.
good music, straight r&b. good food. good prices and portions.
Loved being able to sample flavor options ...it’s a quaint space perfect for first date too.
LOVEEEE THIS PLACE! The service, food REAL GOOD and Price NICEEE! MUST HAVE the crab legs! Will be back again and again :)
The food was tasty
Perfect service. Will visit again soon. The food was delicious 😋
Food was great but service was lacking. Once food was bought to the table the waiter, although he was obviously busy, didn’t come around anymore. My cup sat empty without water for more than 20 minutes and that’s pretty crazy when one considers that I was eating salty foods. They would do much better with some additional hands.
This eatery had turned out to be a favorite lunch spot. I love the food and servers are friendly. The music is just what I like not too loud so you can talk and loud enough to pat your feet.
Just enjoyed our friendship lunch.
The food was great and the service was even better. Our server gave excellent customer service. I was very pleased and will return again.
The boil and lobster cheesy fries were so good! Really enjoyed the drinks as well. Rum punch and Hennessy punch were delicious. Our server was on point.
i loved it. the workers carried such good energy and handled the food with love. i ordered the cajun king crabs and they were *chefs kiss*. definitely going back
I go to the same location on Broadway. The servers are friendly & engaging. The food takes about twenty minutes to half an hour. The food is consistent, fresh, & made to perfection. The drinks are blended well. I usually get a fishbowl.
Food and service were very good. It was very loud on our floor but I wouldn’t blame the restaurant for that more on the customers
Went with a friend after work. It was a first for the both of us and we both enjoyed it. We shared one of their special combos and couldn’t even finish it. Very filling. And the drinks were good as well. I had a Long Island and she had some kind of punch bowl with candy in it. The staff was very friendly and their Covid precautions were top notch. Great time.
This place have the worst service ..the owners and management should be ashamed of themselves at this establishment..the bathroom toilets were completely clogged and over flowing ...my teenage daughters weren’t able to use the bathrooms at all and when I tried to tell management the ignored the sewer water tracking it through the kitchen and dining area...I will never again go to this place ..the food was really cold and they serve hotdogs and pass them off as sausage ...horrible horrible
The service was decent, greeting by the manager/hostess was prompt. Waitress was kind and all covid measures were in place.
The problem was the food and the bathroom area downstairs.
The food, portions were extremely small compared to other crab boil spots throughout the city and out of state. We ordered the king crab and snow crab. The King crab, two legs that were no where near the size to be called "King Crab". It looked like one of the hind legs of a baby King Crab. That was $58 for two miniature legs. Then the Snow Crab, this also looked like baby snow crab legs... We also ordered garlic noodles at the end, there was literally no seasoning, just hint of garlic. The noodles looked like a cross between lomain and linguine noodles.
Now to the bathroom downstairs, the floor was completely wet and it did not look clean. The women's bathroom was out of order so everyone had to use the men's room... While we were down there one of the kitchen staff cooks used the bathroom with their gloves on. Didn't wash their hands and went right back to the kitchen... This means he used the bathroom with he same gloves he had on to cook in the kitchen! Seeing this after we ate our meal was absolutely appalling.
The place has a B rating from City inspection, not sure of that rating alone is up to par. Will not be going there again.
It was my son’s birthday , the experience and ambiance was all good .
I had a seat right by the door and it was quiet. Great date, great food!
Staff was friendly and welcoming. Waiters was attentive and accommodating.
The food was very delicious and the service was fantastic!
I missed the shaking crab the most during quarantine process so happy to see service is still amazing and food as well see you guys again soon
Ordered the prix-fixe which seemed like good value for food! The food was pretty good, appetizers were okay but still enjoyed them. The beignets were delicious. Drinks were great too. Overall good service and place wasn't crowded at all. Felt spacious and comfortable for indoor dining.
The covid procedures are pretty good.
Finally ordered our food with one server. We got the first round of food. Then a second server comes to ask if we had placed our order. Uh.... ok... so the manager comes, and he “went to check on the food” and said sorry and that the drinks are on him. We only had 2 beers.... food finally came. We had order the priciest bundle in their valentines menu. The lobster was a baby lobster. We had no potatoes as stated in the menu.
I think our 1st experience back in a restaurant could of been better. We won’t be coming back to this location.
