They lost their license to serve alcohol and the seats and part of the walls are filled with graffiti. Wouldn't want your young child to read what is written. The food was ok.

In the dish that I order there were two different types of crab when was snow crab the other was Dungeness. The snow crab was obviously not fresh it had a smell to it that was not fresh it was extremely salty and it tastes like they use sugar to make the crab seem like it was naturally sweet but that did not work the corn and the potatoes had been in the liquid so long and had soaked up the sauce. I did tell the waitress that it was very salty, she said she would tell the cooks. That did nothing for my confidence in returning ever again. This was my second time I was giving them the benefit of the doubt. What really bothers me on top of that if I paid $10 for the Groupon wound up paying another $16 and I only got one dish.

GREATLY enjoyed the Crab Boat I think it was - crab, shrimp, delish corn on the cob and sausage/potato in a bag of really tasty spices Totally worth the trip out there! But you may not think it when you initially walk in and find pretty much every piece of furniture (booths/tables) with writinglike Sharpie writingeverywhere!

It will be great if there are more waitresses. There was only one on a busy day. She did great, but must be exhausted running around.

From Our Editors

At Crabaholic, the fanciest article of clothing you're likely to see is a plastic lobster bib. Don't be fooled by this, or the paper-topped tables; lurking beneath Crabaholic's down-home atmosphere is a host of intricately flavored sealife.

Whether the chefs are filling their boiling pots with lobster, crawfish, oysters, escargot, or any of four breeds of crab, they lock in the flavors of the bayou with liberal doses of cajun spice tailored to each diner's preferred heat level and seasoning. Crabaholic does not limit itself to cajun flavors, either. The dungeness crab might just as easily surprise the palate with a glaze of tamarind or Singapore sauce. Likewise, the restaurant stocks wines, sakes, and Korean soju along with a full complement of domestic and international beers. Adding to the experience of piling up empty half-shells and hollow claws are the undersea murals along the walls and ceiling, complete with surf paraphernalia and life preservers for diners who are a little too hands-on about selecting their lobster.
