About The Boiling Crab

The Boiling Crab® is a casual dining restaurant modelled after a traditional Louisiana seafood boil featuring seafood and fish entrees prepared Cajun-style with different proprietary finishing sauces and complementary side dishes, beer and wine and fountain drinks.

The Boiling Crab® restaurants feature an informal dining atmosphere with nautical theme décor. The menu includes one or more varieties of crab, crawfish, lobster, shrimp and raw oysters. Fresh seafood entrees are prepared in giant pots of seasoned broth, made to order and served in bags (to preserve flavor) on paper covered tables.

Traditional utensils are optional, as many consider the art of seafood boil to include peeling and eating seafood with ones hands. The menu also includes fried options such as fried catfish or shrimp with Cajun fries, gumbo and side dishes.

The customer demographic is from infants to seniors with a strong millennial following. There are often long lines at dinnertime waiting to eat at The Boiling Crab® restaurants in the USA. The average single restaurant annual revenues are US$5,900,000.
