For our main course we got the number 3 which comes with clams, shrimp, scallops and snow crab in Crackin sauce medium level spice. The sauce is a perfect balance of butter spice and saltiness. Compared to Flaming Kitchen, I prefer this place because of the bold flavor and service. It's a bit pricey but we are in the desert. Crackin' Crab Claw specializes in Louisiana dishes, specifically Cajun cooking from the southwestern part and Creole cooking from New Orleans. I wish that you automatically get Corn and Potatoes when you order your entree but you have to pay for them separately. Will definitely come again when I'm in Albuquerque next time This place was excellent! It's a bit shotty at times.
I highly recommend this restaurant for both food and service. Never had a problem with service. I got the king crab they were small but they gave me extra legs because of that. The Live Auction takes place during dinner. You order seafood by the pound or order one of the combos, they bring it out in bags and you just go crazy with your hands. Each table gets two bottles of wine with their meal, with more wine and cocktails for sale. Why even be open during lunch with no lunch menu? Owned and operated locally and you can really tell the love that the family has put into their craft.
And 5 if I'd go out of my way to get there for more. I had made a mess and my face was covered in juices. I will most definitely return. We found this place on Yelp, and decided to try it. They also have fried food choices. The French fries are to die for and always come out steaming hot! It was very much like a crab bake at my cousin's in Maryland. Got rice and bread to go with the seafood which balanced out a bit of the saltiness.
Served family-style with a tossed salad and Fort Bragg Bakery bread, the cioppino dinner is popular with locals as well as out-of-towners who have snagged tickets to the Crab Cake Cook-off and Wine Tasting Competition the next day. The family-style, crab-centric dishes paired with wine will be prepared by Sonoma chefs Bryan Jones and Ed Metcalfe. Maybe ask them if you can place flyers in their break rooms. Good food but I can't say if I would be back or not. It is no Bubba Gump shrimp factory but still amazingly good for sea food in the desert.
This was great sea food placed in a clear plastic bag mixed with mouth watering seasoning. I like spicy and medium was a tough one to get all the way through, my lips were on fire! The waitress apologized for the inconvenience. I put on the plastic bib and was overly excited when Viji brought out my bag of seafood and shook up the hot steaming bag of: 1 pound of Crackin' Crawfish 1 pound of clams Corn on com 2 potatoes I got the Crackin' medium spicy. I carb up on rice first to minimize any upset stomach issues later. I was looking for something closer to home.
Overall I feel like I overpaid for the quality and amount of food that was given. He eats or Oysters almost every time we have seafood and he said that these, were by far, the best. Although there are too many local crab feeds to list here, we threw a wide net to offer some tasty choices in a variety of regions and categories, from crab feeds for foodies to crab feeds with a view. I get the bayou sauce every time I go and it always has my tastebuds jumping! We were asked if we wanted refills, said yes, but she came with my check and no refills. I had a excessive amount of eggs in half a pound of my crawfish. I recommend this place especially if you are in the University area! The waitress forgot to bring a drink. It wasn't too spicy but had a little kick at the end.
Ppl who actually comes in first will wait for long period of time and then since they don't have no host, other groups who comes in will get seated first before those who came first. Also, many of you may already know that several of us have tried to put consistency in our reviews by having a common rating system. I recommend getting a side of rice to balance out all the butteriness and saltiness. Q: Where is the Crab Feed? I always go for the family pack with the crackin sauce mild. Oh man I love a good seafood boil! She stayed with me for 10 min. Okay sooo where did this hair come from then?? Buttery Garlic medium is what he suggested.
I was annoyed they had cash only but that's not everyday. Kickin' Crab is a great place to hang out with friends, family, or both! Please visit our before posting! A young gentleman acknowledged me before he went to do something else.
