    Every visit to Shaking Crab is great! Good and service are excellent. I’ve been about 3 times before the pandemic and about 3 times during. They are also great for takeout! Love the fried catfish, Cajun fries and of course the boils!

    It was pretty good. Only problem was the server made a mistake a few times on our meal because we were such a large group. But other than that the food and the experience was great

    First time eating at shaking crab and absolutely recommend if you're a sea food lover. It's simple, taste good, and its fun to make the mess. I ordered the "Barlic" flavor with some snow crab legs. I needed a bit of salt for some flavor and the waiter quickly suggested a shake in seasoning and adjusted the flavor slightly. Its was amazing and very attentive.

    Little corner gem in Flushing. The food was sooo finger-licking delicious! I had the snow crab legs/shrimp shake combo with added corn, potatoes & sausage with the Barlic flavor add-in. It was AMAZING! They also make super delicious coleslaw & Asian style collard greens! This place is a must-visit!!

    Best service! Our waiter noticed that I was having a hard time opening the Alaskan King Crab legs, he helped me and my daughter to crack it all open. He was very considerate and helpful. The Seoul sauce was the best. Very flavorful. I will comeback. Maybe they can add a scissors for the customers to use (just like in Korean barbeque places). It would be a lot easier to enjoy the crab legs with it. Thank you Shaking Crab and thanks to our kind waiter.

    Food was good the table setting was tight and was forced to sit near door that was constantly opened and blowing in cold air while a 4 seating table was available throughout my entire dining time there...forcing me to eat my food quickly because the draft hitting my body. 😥 Overall the food was delicious as well as the drinks 👍

    A little hole in the wall restaurant that serves great crab and other shellfish. The medium spice on the snow crab was plenty spicy for me. My son got the spiciest crab which he loved (hot enough to make him perspire) with shrimp and quail eggs on the side. We'll definitely go back.

    The food was okay. But the crab is very salty. We even informed the staff n they said they r aware of it. Strange! So why don’t they improve the taste? The price is not cheap. We didn’t get what we paid for.
