It seems there’s a new crab joint opening up every other week. The crab is either angry, boiling, juicy, or some other mouth watering adjective. In this case, the crab was JUICY!
I totally happened upon this place by accident. I happened to be going to the office supply store to grab a few items. In the corner of my mind, I spotted the joint. I made a mental note to go back and check it out. It just so happened that I went back the same day.
When I got there, I did notice that it was pretty empty inside. There were maybe only 4 tables that had customers. That wasn’t going to stop me. I was going to do my best to see what the place was about. I perused the menu and landed on lemon pepper wings, king crab, shrimp, and snow crab – all pictured below.
You know, here’s my take – and I hope this doesn’t sound harsh. All of these places are all the same. There’s nothing amazing about a new crab joint that the previous crab joints haven’t already done. It’s crab, in a plastic bag, loaded with seasonings, and it’s messy. I mean, the food was good. It wasn’t amazing or mind blowing, but it was standard fare. It was good.
This really doesn’t have much to do with this establishment, per se. I mean, the service was good. The atmosphere was nice. My server was a doll. It’s just, well, how many ways can you jazz up the whole “seasoned crab in a bag” schtick? Perhaps I should have thought about that before going to the joint, too. It’s like, you can’t go to a place like McDonald’s looking for a salt and pepper crusted rib eye steak with garlicky chimichurri. It sorta won’t happen. Does that make sense?
Maybe I’m digressing. Anyway, the food was good. The atmosphere was good. Just don’t go expecting anything to be mind-blowingly different from your standard crab-in-a-bag fare. That’s all.
