About Giant Crab

This place truly stands out among the many eateries on Restaurant Row; maybe it’s the large replicas of a ship and a lighthouse in front of the building, or perhaps it’s the actual “giant crab” that straddles the doors to this establishment. Tacky decor aside, this is the place for seafood – and lots of it.

Giant Crab Food

This place is all about the buffet – a 170-item embarrassment of riches that serves as the centerpiece of the large, open dining area and features several stations. The Steam and Raw Bar is a great place to get started with peel-and-eat shrimp, steamed oysters and crawfish, and, of course, crab legs. The seafood station also has a huge spread of fried oysters, shrimp, flounder, scallops, and fresh catch of the day, plus fried chicken, ribs, and other entrees for those looking for “land food.” A carving station, soup, salad and dessert bar, and even a hibachi grill ensure there’s plenty of variety to choose from, and the kids have their own station serving burgers, pizza, chicken nuggets, and other favorites. You won’t leave hungry.

Giant Crab Atmosphere

The nautical-themed decor is dominant throughout the restaurant, although the Pirate’s Island Tavern provides adults with a nice escape from the buffet scene. Like most buffets, the dining area is bustling with diners going to and from the food stations. Giant Crab manages to maintain a mood that is more fun than most all-you-cant-eat feed troughs.

  • Get your Crabs at Crabby Mikes!

    We have made it an annual tradition to eat as often as possible at Crabby Mikes while we spend 6 weeks here in the winter. Awesome selection, well prepared and fresh food every time. Service is so welcoming we feel like family there!
