Shaking Crab
Creole cooking & spicy seafood
Seafood · $
Channeling New Orleans by way of New England, the Creole cuisine at this down-home eatery focuses on boiled seafood like crab, lobster and crawfish, poured into bags and shaken with spices, then complemented with Southern sides, sweet tea and boozy punch bowls for communal sipping; the Cambridge location also has a big draft beer list.

Lobster! Crab! and there's wings on the apps! I've been to places similar, one called Hot n Juicy in DC. Shaking crab is absolutely more affordable and I appreciated the menu a little more. Such a variety in combinations. The flavors are so tasty and juicy. The option to get the head off on the shrimp is worth it! Super worth it. We were so full when we left. I recommend it for my New England seafood lovers. Service was great!

YES THEY HAVE CRABS! AND SO MUCH FLAVOR! If your the kind of person that enjoys the challenge of spices this is the place with great meaty sea food. It can get alittle messy so don’t be shy. This has been the only place where my lobster isn’t just a regular boiled lobster but it has some serious meat inside YUM and all for a great price and pleasant customer service. Just be aware sometimes the waitress or waiter may forget your drink but they are attentive so it’s not bad .

This place was so much fun and absolutely delicious. I had the crawfish&shrimp and lobster boils with two different sauces: Cajun and Gulf. Sauces were amazing! I recommend getting fries to dip in. Seafood was fresh and tasty. They give you a bib and gloves and you get messy so be warned and prepared! Attached is a picture of my drink, it was delicious and so cute! (tequila drink) Definitely recommend this place and will go back soon.
