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!
