Great fun

Had a lunch here with some family. My nephews were over the moon about eating their food with their hands and no plates or silverware. We had crawfishes, shrimps, snow crab legs, oysters, and Cajun fries. Everything was excellent but he oysters. These didn't taste fresh at all. I had all kinds... read more

I was a little hesitant since there was about a 30 min wait.....but oh was it worth it! The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. We ordered shrimp, oysters, sausage, and Corn on the cob. I had my hand in a cast and the waitress brought me a plastic bag to put over it! We ended up only ordering 6... More

Long, LONG wait but it's worth it. I've been here a few times and love the shrimp and King Crab legs! Always fresh and I always get the whole shabang. It can get a little messy because you peel and eat as you go but they have napkins and bibs for you. I've also tried their oysters, crawfish, and clams... More

The Boiling Crab is my first experience eating cajun seafood in a bag. Its messy and its delicious, and unfortuantely 100's of people agree, because getting a table at ANY of their locations can be hard to to. The average wait is 45 minutes, and i've heard some are as long as 2 hours. Is it worth it? Some say... More

Had dinner here after spending a day Disneyland, and it was well worth the 45 min wait! We had the clams in lemon & pepper sauce, and the King Crab and Blue Crab in the Whole Shebang sauce - super fresh (trust me, we're from HK, so we know our fresh crab) and the sauce really makes the meal! It... More

First time here and had no idea what I had in store. A family member brought us here one day. Two of my kids DO NOT like shrimp, and they had a choice of chicken strips and rice and corn, which was perfect! All I can say is that, the two kids that did not like shrimp, they took over... More

I've been to a similar place in Hawaii called Raging Crab, so I was excited when I heard about this place! We were in town for Disneyland for a weekend and I've mentioned it to my boyfriend MANY times that we had to make a stop. The wait was about 30 minutes at 8:30pm on a Friday night. Worth the...

First of all you can eat with the hand, you dont need forks or knifes. Fair prices, good beers. Ask for a garlic shrimp. The best!!!!!

This was my 2nd visit to The Boiling Crab on Brookhurst. I choose this location cause there's a bakery in the center & The Boiling Crab allows you to bring in a loaf of bread cause they don't offer bread. The food was awesome. I had king crab legs, corn, shrimp, potatoes & sausage all seasoned with the whole shabang... More
