Popular Menu Items

The menu at The Boiling Crab is pretty simple. They tend to stick to what they know best: boiled shellfish and fried seafood. If you are planning on trying the boil, first you will choose among the many seafood selections, then pick your favorite flavor combination, and finally choose your heat level. Be careful, XXX is REALLY hot!

Below are some the most popular items from the menu:

Mussels or Clam

If you love your shellfish, definitely get a 1-pound bag of the boiled clams or mussels. Cooked to perfection every time and prepared in your favorite seasoning blend. You can choose between the spicy Rajun Cajun, the savory Garlic Sauce, or a traditional lemon pepper. If you can’t decide, go for “The Whole Sha-Bang!® which is a blend of all three. A pound of mussels is $9.00, and clams are $10.00.

Fried Shrimp Basket

If you are looking to spare yourself the mess of a boil but still appreciate tasty food from the sea, consider some of the excellent fried options at The Boiling Crab. The fried shrimp basket is a great choice and it comes with a stack of piping hot Cajun fries so you don’t have to miss out on the great Cajun spices with this choice. A heaping portion for $11.00.

Fried Calamari

If you have never tried squid before, this is your chance. Flash fried to perfection for tender and crispy calamari, you can’t go wrong with this feast. Try it with a slice of lemon or lime. It comes with Cajun fries for $10.00.

Hot Wings

If you or a friend in your group doesn’t like seafood, or if you are just a big wing fan, be sure to check these crisp and juicy wings. They come in Cajun if you like a little spice, or lemon pepper if you are looking for something milder to offset a spicy boil. 8 wings for $8.00.


We recommend this accompaniment for your boil feast. It will help balance out the spicy flavors if you get the Cajun blend on your seafood. The cup size is a very generous portion. You can have it with or without rice for $6.00.

Cajun Fries

Another great side, especially if you like a little heat, is a pile of Cajun fries. You will love the special spice blend these taters are tossed in! $3.50.
