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. Cheesy 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 steamed shrimp, crawfish, mussels, clams and Lowcountry boil. The seafood station is brimming with the bounty of sea, including snow crab legs, calamari, fried flounder, stuffed scallops, mahi mahi, and the fried fish of the day. Get your fill on sides with corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and mac & cheese among others.  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 tenders, 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.
