Between its delicious flavors, the healthier protein option it presents and the fun eating experience it provides, there are many reasons the seafood boil trend is booming.
At Angry Crab Shack, our Asian Cajun seafood boil is our flagship menu offering. Not only does it leave our guests with a tasty meal, but it also gives them a dining experience they won’t soon forget.
While many seafood boil restaurants have started cropping up across the U.S. in recent years, Angry Crab Shack was ahead of the curve. We’ve been serving delicious, Louisiana-style seafood boils to satisfied guests since 2013, and this restaurant trend – and Angry Crab Shack – show no signs of slowing down.

The traditional Louisiana backyard seafood boil is no longer just for local family and friends. Regardless of location, seafood boils are in demand.
