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.

We'd like you to spoil Dad on Father's Day. That means giving him whatever he wants, including our Cajun Garlic Noodles with Shrimp and Sausage. No, just shrimp is not enough. And, obviously, just sausage is not enough either. Heck, if he also wants to add clams and mussels, too, we can do that. 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. :-).

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.
Christmas is finally upon us and we realize that many of you would love for us to help you with your gathering. No need to worry. We go you. We are open on Christmas Eve from noon till 6pm and on Christmas Day from noon till 10pm so that you get your Cajun seafood fix whether you'd like to dine in or take home. We have live crawfish so bring the whole fam bam and/or all your friends and feast with us. We also wouldn't mind if you brought us a gift, too ;-). Merry Christmas, everyone!
For this Thanksgiving, we are thankful that Louisiana Crawfish is already back in stock! Come on in for some seafood which also includes shrimp, clams, mussels, lobster tails, and/or crab legs. And to make things even more interesting this year, we've decided to open on Thanksgiving Day! From noon till 6pm. Come on and get some live crawfish for Thanksgiving, something you can truly be thankful for.
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!
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.
Do you like legs? We thought so. Don't these King Crab Legs look sexy and delicious? You can get them by the pound or get our Crab Legs Combo which includes a pound of King Crab Legs and a pound of Snow Crab Legs. Yep, legs for days. We'll even give you some scissors to help you take off the shells. Once you get to the meat of the legs, dip them in the Cajun sauce and enjoy. Yeah, that's way better than just dipping them in butter. Yeah, we're a little biased.
It's never too soon... for a Corona beer. Yes, starting September 8, 2020, the Fire Crab is now open for limited dine-in capabilities. Thank you, everyone, for being patient and understanding through this difficult time. ❤️ We are fully stocked of all your seafood favorites. Call us at (714) 638-8080 for all to-go orders.
Have you tried our ultimate Oyster Shooters? If not, you should! We take a fresh oyster from whatever we have in stock, shuck the crap out of it, top it with masago, green onions, ponzu, a secret sauce, and a quail egg. It comes with a shot of sake. It's your choice whether to take the shot before or after but you should really take it with the oyster shooter. It's the best oyster shooter around! And you know, you can't order just one.
We are open for pick-up and delivery up to 10 miles away! We understand the current situation and prefer safety and health above all else for everyone. So from now until when this whole Corona situation is over, we will be offering free local delivery within 5 miles on all orders over $50. For deliveries less than $50 within 5 miles, there is a $4.99 delivery fee. For all other deliveries up to 10 miles away, there will be a $9.99 fee. Call us at (714) 638-8080. Please be safe and kind and we'll see everyone again soon enough.
You can pretty much get anything off of our menu to go! We'll pack it up real nice for you. Like the pictured Cajun Garlic Noodles with Shrimp and Mussels. Or even Clams and Sausages! We understand that sometimes you can't make it into our restaurant so we want to make it as convenient and just as good as if you were at our restaurant. Maybe you have kids you have to watch. Maybe you don't like to eat with your hands in public. We don't care. If you want it to go, we'll give it to you to go! And there's no additional charge for to go orders.
We showcased our Fish & Chips before so now it's time for us to talk about our Shrimp & Chips. We butterfly cut our shrimps, lightly bread and batter them and then deep-fry them to perfection. We serve them up with some chips (fries) but you can always upgrade those to cajun fries or sweet potato fries for only another dollar. It's definitely something that can be shared because it's entirely a finger food. Anybody at your table with fingers can eat it. If they don't have fingers, then that means more for you. It's a great appetizer as you await your cajun seafood combo.
Originally, Fish & Chips is a British dish. They called their fries, "chips." Well, we've taken this British classic and added a Cajun twist to it, and then threw in a little Southern California flavor to make it all our own. Now you can get the Fish and Chips as it is, with our regular fries, or you can get them with any of our 6 other types of fries, including our oh-so-popular sweet potato fries. We pride ourselves on giving you options and having 7 different types of fries (or chips) is a pretty good sign of that.
Where else can you get fresh oysters to go in Orange County? We shuck them for you, make sure they're fresh, and then pack them up nicely and neatly on a bed of ice. It's a great deal, considering we check every single oyster to make sure they're not dead and stinky. You will always get the best oysters from us as they are shipped in quite a few times every week. And to top it all off, we always have at least 4 varieties in stock all the time. Next time you have a craving, give us a call and we'll prepare it for you for pick up.
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 Live Crawfish and Peeled Shrimp as in the picture. 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.
We have 3 different types of baked oysters to choose from. There's Dynamite, Peanuts & Chives, and Ying-Yang. As you can see from the picture, Ying-Yang consists of 2 different colored masagos (roes) on a baked oyster, red and black. Every order comes with 3 freshly-shucked oysters and they're only made when you order them. If you like seafood, then this is the dish for you. It's fish eggs on top of an oyster. That's seafood on top of seafood. Yumminess on top of yumminess. Just another one of our awesome seafood appetizers you gotta try out soon!
We couldn't really call ourselves a cajun restaurant if we didn't have Cajun Wings, now could we? We have crafted our very own unique blend of cajun spices that you will surely appreciate with every bite of our Cajun Wings. You can order them in a 5 or 10 count and you have other wing flavors to choose from, like Honey BBQ, Lemon Pepper, and Fish Sauce. Honey BBQ has obviously a sweeter taste to it and the Fish Sauce has a sweet and savory taste to it. Lemon Pepper tastes like lemon and pepper, haha. All 4 have unique tastes of their own and none of them are ever a bad choice!
Get a combo of combos! You can order as many as you want and you can combine them however you wish! It's all about options at the Fire Crab! So if you want various combos to have various seafoods and have a different sauce type and/or spiciness level for each, feel free to order to your heart's content. There's no limit! Seafood choices include crawfish, shrimp, clams, mussels, or crab legs. We can accommodate large parties.
We don't have to sell you everything on or in a shell. We also have our very, very popular deep fried oysters. Nothing to peel. Nothing to suck. Heck, you'll barely get your hands dirty. We batter up a dozen freshly shucked oysters, deep fry them to perfection, and then serve them to you fresh. You won't be disappointed with this appetizer at all. Our current oysters in stock are Blue Point from New York, Calm Cove from Washington, Kumiai from Baja California, Kumamoto from Washington, and Shigoku from Washington. Yep, 5 varieties to choose from right now.
It's getting hot in Orange County! Well, it's always been hot in our kitchen. Get any of our steaming bucket deals and you'll see what we mean. Once we bring your seafood out, the steam is so hot, those bad boys can't wait for you to take them out of their shells. And if you want hot as in spicy, yeah, we go that, too. Just ask. We like a good burn every now and then, too. Our Fire Sauce is just a combination of all of our various flavored sauces. Pick your favorite one and let us know how hot you want it. We can make it as hot as you want it.
We always strive to provide awesome appetizers while you await your Cajun Seafood Combos so here's another one you might not have tried yet: Dynamite Bread. We take 5 slices of baguette bread, smother our spread of bell pepper, shrimp, cheese, and other secret ingredients on one side of each of them, and then toast them to perfection. You will get a nice, gooey bite with every bite! And if your seafood combo comes out before you finish them, you can also dip them into your seafood combo sauce for even more flavor. That's a lot to handle. Hope your taste buds are up to the challenge!
