Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

Backyard crab and crawfish boils are a way of life for those lucky enough to live near the plentiful Gulf. Since forever, we connect with our land and sea to appreciate the delicious bounty available to us. Smashin Crab continues this tradition every day. Walk through the doors and you're greeted with the smells and feel of home! Smashin Crab helps you relive or create memories of Mardi Gras parades and your grandma's gumbo while listening to Second Line Brass Bands and Zydeco tunes. We're bringing the good vibes all day long! Y'all ready for this? Dig right in, we'll take care of the mess!

Amazing new eatery! Shrimp and crawfish basket was wonderful and served hot! Cajun fries very tasty. My husband had grilled redfish which he enjoyed. The key lime pie rivals those of Florida!
