This is my spot, forget the boiling crab. Since the first time I came here, never went back. The seasonings are amazing, the shrimp is huge, the service is outstanding. Everyone is courteous and helpful. No wait, plenty of seating, prices are great, your loss if you don't try it out.
Cracking Crab will always get 5 stars from me. I love everything about this place. By far, my favorite spot for shrimp and beer. The service is always fast and friendly. I love the upbeat music and dim lighting because it gives you a chill, laid-back feeling. The shrimp itself is very delicious, I would say that it is the best tasting out of the other crab joints. The fries are a must when you come here, can go wrong with some crispy golden fries! Just an FYI - they do charge for extra ranch. Parking is available behind the restaurant. Definitely a 5 star experience every time! Just a tip (that's what she said): By the way - if you go arms deep into that bag of shrimp and you find yourself covered in the sauce there is a sink you can use by the bar to wash it all off. Much easier than going to the bathroom!
Lunch discussions are a pretty big deal at the office and one guy mentioned shrimp. That's all it took for us to make the trek out to the Crab. I ordered the spicy garlic shrimp and he ordered the garlic butter shrimp which we mixed & matched. Damn it was good! This is the type of place where they bring you out a bib and gloves to eat with your hands. Those little suckers were good! The spicy garlic is pretty spicy so if you don't want to go past your garlic threshold, just order the garlic butter and you'll be alright. We also ordered the deep fried lobster with seasoned fries. For $10 you can't get a better deal in town. I recommend ordering this with your shrimp or crab to make your life complete!
