If you are more interested in tasty seafood that looking smart then this is the place for you. Delicious crab with Louisiana sides - but don't go for anything spicier than medium! Plastic bib and gloves were essential.

The shrimp&crayfish in a bag concept is popping up all over now, but it is nice to see that the drunken crab has some dishes that set it apart. The seafood is great, we tried a lot of it! The soft shell crab is definitely worth getting. Real quality, big crabs and great flavor. Our only complaint is that the waiter disappeared and we had to hunt him down for the check. We found him chatting up a waitress. He lost a nice tip.

I would not visit this place again. It is more of a have a beer and a messy snack. Practically everything is fried. No plates, just baskets and plastic utensils. The shrimp looked good, but served not only with shells on, I don't mind dealing with those, but the heads on which adds to the cost as they are served by the pound. They are served in a plastiic bag with plastic gloves and a plastic bib. Have fun with that.If you are looking to have some beers, no liquor here, and some snack style foods this is your place.
