What’s Krackin’ Southern Seafood

$$$$

This counter-service seafood boil restaurant in Hyde Park has incredible shrimp, crab, and lobster that you can buy by the pound. Your bag comes with your choice of flavorful sauce (our favorite is the Cajun or the very spicy house), seafood, and sides like potatoes and corn. If you want your seafood fried, get one of their baskets (with options like oysters or catfish) or a po’boy. You can eat inside the little storefront, or take your precious bag of shellfish home. Either way, grab some extra napkins and prepare for things to get messy.

We’d ditch all of our family and friends for a bag of seafood at The Angry Crab.
