We'd like you to spoil Dad on Father's Day. That means giving him whatever he wants and treating him like the pimp that he is. Get him a whole spread of his favorite seafood. Get him some beer. It's his day! Let's spoil him! We are large-party-friendly so bring all your dad's kids, too. Even the ones you despise. :-).

It's Mother's Day weekend when we finally show our appreciation for all the sacrifice, dedication, and love our Moms have for us. If Mom wants to suck on some Crawfish heads today, let her! Give her what she wants! She doesn't have to cook today and she shouldn't have to clean up after you today, either. Get multiple combos and make everyone happy! But especially, Mom. Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
While you're waiting for one of our Cajun Seafood Combos, get our awesome Fried Calamari as an appetizer to start. You won't regret it as we use our very own special combination of spices and batter and then fry these bad boys to perfection. You will be sorry if you never get to try our calamari. Good thing we're a forgiving restaurant. Come on in and get it today and all will be forgiven. Comes with lemon wedges and our very own dipping sauce. Use both or use none. It doesn't matter. You'll love it.
We know not everyone observes lent but for those of you who do, be aware that the Fire Crab's menu is most definitely lent-friendly. With the exception of sausages and our chicken wings, just about everything else on our menu is Vatican-approved for lent. So swing on by for meatless Fridays or if you gave up meat for lent, swing on by any time. And for those of you who don't observe lent, well, just come on by. We don't discriminate and think you're going to hell because you don't observe lent.
Valentine's Day is on a Monday this year and we want to help you get in the mood with oysters all day long. That's right. February 14th. It's all the makings of a romantic Valentine's Day for us.

They said it couldn't be done. Well, we did it. It's mid-November and we have Live Louisiana Crawfish once again! While everyone around town is serving frozen crawfish, we somehow magically are able to get fresh shipments of live crawfish! Seriously, no joke. This was extremely hard for us to obtain and we do it all for you! Come on by as soon as you can and take advantage of our fresh stocked, live crawfish. If you have to wait till the weekend, then so be it. But we can't guarantee that we'll still have them.
It's officially over. The crawfish drought for the year is over. Yes, you may come in and order pounds and pounds of live Louisiana crawfish once again. Don't come in all at once. Otherwise, we might run out again, hehe. Just kidding. We have plenty! You can also get shrimp, clams, and mussels as well. Cause, you know, you should always mix it up once in a while. Don't forget that we have an incredible menu of other, awesome Cajun grub that you can also order. Come have your next gathering at the Fire Crab! We'd love to see ya!
Current live oysters in stock: Kumiai, Bald Point, Fanny Bay, and Kumamoto. We always have a fresh variety of oysters every week so it might be hard to decide which oysters you want. That's why you can always get the oyster sampler. It has 4 different types of oyster so you can always try a little bit of everything. Prices vary, according to the type of oysters we have on hand. After you get the sampler, you can then pick your favorite and then get a dozen of those!
There's nothing scary about our Fire Sauce! The only thing you need to be scared of is how hot do you want it? Do you like it when it burns? We do. Coming in and going out. And that's scary! But it tastes so good. You can add our Fire Sauce to any seafood combination such as our Live Crawfish that is currently coming from California. We have it for this weekend but it can run out at any time. You can also order some bread to go with your combo so that you can soak up all that Fire Sauce goodness to the very last drop.
Can you believe it's already September? Time is flying right by. We're fast approaching our 7 year anniversary! What should we do? Let us know! In the mean time, do as this picture says. Don't labor this weekend, especially when it comes time to decide on where to go for lunch or dinner. We still have live crawfish so come on in this weekend and get them while we still got them. And, of course, you'll have to labor a little bit over peeling the crawfish but it's so well worth it. It won't feel like work at all.
By now, many of our customers know exactly what they like in their seafood combination. Whether it be just live crawfish, or a pound of shrimp, clams, and/or mussels, they know exactly what they want. The nice thing about our eating arrangement is that it is meant to be shared. So you can pick whatever combo you want for yourself and then your friends can do the same and then when the food all comes out, you can have a little bit of everything. Who knows? Maybe you'll end up liking someone else's combo and then making it your own in the future. We love it when you share.
Swing on by for your very own customized Cajun Seafood Combo: Choices include live crawfish, shrimp, peeled shrimp, clams, or mussels. In this picture, you can see a combination of live crawfish, shrimp, peeled shrimp, and clams. It's up to you and your group's preferences. Some people like regular shrimp and others like peeled shrimp. Sometimes, you need to get them together to really see which one you prefer. It's nice to be able to switch back and forth.
We have developed a special blend of spices and batter for our fried calamari that you're sure to love! Easily one of our most popular appetizers, it's a great way to start out your seafood feast with us. We also have spicy garlic edamame, dynamite bread, deep fried oysters, and three different types of wings (cajun, honey bbq, fish sauce). You should probably try them all out to see what you like best but we're pretty sure you'll love everything.
Do you feel like having oysters all weekend? We do! We have such a large shipment of oysters recently, we dare you to try to eat our whole inventory. We currently have 4 varieties in stock: Kumamoto, Kumiai, Bald Point, and Fanny Bay. Each one is available in half dozen orders though if you know what you like, we recommend you get an entire dozen. You can always opt for the sampler which gives you a few of each and you can also get Oyster Shooters. Yes, they are the best aphrodisiacs around town.
If you're planning on having a get together this weekend, remember that we have everything on our menu ready for your next party! Just call us up and order it. It'll be ready for you within a few minutes. We hope everyone has a fun filled and safe independence holiday! We'll be open from noon till 6pm for dine-in or for to-go orders. Seafood choices include crawfish, shrimp, clams, mussels, crab legs, and lobster tails. We also have plenty of appetizers to choose from as well as the best Cajun Garlic Noodles in town.
A couple of weeks ago, we posted about our Garlic Butter Sauce but it was a picture of mussels and clams. This week, we're posting about our Garlic Butter Sauce again but are using a picture of crawfish instead. Looks pretty good, doesn't it? Yep, that's why we had to post it. So we have Garlic Butter, Cajun, Lemon Pepper, and our house sauce, Fire Sauce. Now go try all of them!
Ask and you shall receive! We, at the Fire Crab, try our best to do what we need to keep our customers happy. Well, many of you have told us that the bread we offer is awesome for dipping in our Cajun sauce but that you would like to upgrade the bread to Garlic Bread. So bam! There you go. You now have the option of getting Garlic Bread with your Cajun Seafood Combos. Wow! That's a lot of flavor and now, you can really sop up all the sauce after you eat up all that seafood.
Time for some Baked Oysters topped with a spicy mayo spread and multicolored masago! We call them our Ying-Yang Baked Oysters because after you eat them, they'll make you shake it like a salt shaker. They're simply some freshly shucked oysters, topped with our spicy mayo spread and masago and then baked to perfection. Yummy indeed! And perfectly complimentary to our Cajun Seafood Combos.
If you need a little something to help warm you up from the inside before you have one of our awesome Cajun seafood combos, get a Gumbo! It'll surely warm you up and it's quite hearty, too! It's made in-house and has all kinds of awesome ingredients, like shrimp, shredded chicken, andouille sausage, okra, and green peppers. Every spoon is full of flavor and some kind of meat. Come on in and get it now!
Yes, we have Crawfish Fried Rice. No, you don't have to peel the crawfish that's in the fried rice. We actually cook shelled crawfish tails in our fried rice along with an assortment of veggies and sausage. Definitely hits the spot, especially if you're looking for something a little bit more filling. Our Crawfish Fried Rice is definitely a fusion of Asian and Cajun, otherwise known as Cajun Asian style. This is also a nice dish to have for those who don't want to get their hands dirty with one of our seafood combos and it's most definitely a great dish for kids.
That's right. You read that right. We've got them for days. Why? Because we get new shipments all the time. And our selection is always different. Currently, we have 4 types: Kumamoto, Calm Cove, Fanny Bay, and Pickering Pass. We shuck them fresh to order and we check every single one we serve is fresh and ready for consumption. If you don't know which oyster to get, you can always get a sampler. A dozen sampler will get you 3 of each kind. Find out which is the best, and get another dozen of that one. So simple.
It's about that time when the Louisiana Crawfish season is coming to an end. Happens every year, yet, people are still surprised when it happens. So this post is to let you know that if you enjoy live Louisiana Crawfish, you better come on in soon. Incoming shipments are starting to get less and less. Once we do, will will shift over to the California Crawfish, which will be in season for a few months.
In efforts to broaden our menu, we have Jalapeño Poppers as an appetizer! We like to give you a lot of options when it comes to appetizers so we invite you to try these bad boys out. They're not very complicated items as they are just jalapeños filled with cream cheese, battered, and then fried. They are a great item to get while you take advantage of our Cajun Seafood Combo.
