You're always more than welcome to come on by for an impromptu Oyster Party. We always have at least 4 or 5 varieties of raw oysters in stock every day so come on by and get a dozen or two of our sampler platter. Find out which oysters you enjoy the most and then order another dozen or two of those. You just can't lose. Plus, it's Friday. Time for a good party. Plus, it's lent, and we are definitely lent-friendly, unless, of course, you gave up delicious food for lent. Then, my religious friend, you're screwed. Have a nice weekend, everyone!

Would You Like Crawfish on a Rooftop? With K-Pop?

Crawfish on Rooftop with K-Pop Garden Grove Orange County OC Fire Crab

We've finally found some time to revisit the genius that is our commercial. It's a multiple part commercial inspired by Dr Seuss rhymes. It accomplishes everything we aimed for. It's funny, it's witty, and it reinforces the fact that we have crawfish and can pair it with a number of different seafood options. Here is one of the first rhymes: Would you like crawfish on a rooftop? No, I would like my crawfish while watching some k-pop! Why does this make sense? Because we're located on Garden Grove Boulevard, the heart of the Korean District and lover of k-pop in all its glory. This rhyme can be found in part 1 of our commercial: https://youtu.be/O3wXU4nh2V8
