Angry Crab is a unique experience. The food is fantastic. We had the Feast which contained 4.5 lbs of seafood. Crab legs, lobster tails, shrimp and dungess crab. It gets a little messy! The people next to us were smart and came with plastic gloves....More

We ordered the NOLA oysters. They were just okay. Also ordered the crab claws. Mostly shell & very little meat. Overall unimpressed. Just a poor imitation of The Boiler.

Good fun place to go for dinner, food is super fresh and delicious - the lobster tails were my favourite, although everything was really good. A bit of a trek out of the city if you're a tourist but definitely worth it. An Uber from...More

Noisy, casual, high -energy, fun place to dine. Everything is ala-carte; by the pound or the piece. Shellfish comes in the shell which means you have to work for your dinner, but it is well worth it. Most items are reasonable but also some items...More
