Made from scratch, our gumbo is made with the love and care you'd expect from a Southern cajun restaurant from New Orleans. One bite of our delicious gumbo and you'll totally forget that we're a seafood & oyster bar in Garden Grove. There's so much goodness in it, we can't list it all for you. Obviously, you can see the shrimp and okra, but we also have shredded meat, sausage, onions, celery, and a few other secret goodies you'll have to come in and find out for yourself. Grab a bowl for yourself because you won't want to share this bowl.
It's finally the summer! Time to show off those mussels! Yes, we mean of the seafood variety :-). We love getting mussels because you can use the shells as a scooper and scoop up all that goodness and shovel it into your mouth. We serve only live, black mussels and not the usual frozen, green mussels that most other places serve. Mussels are definitely underrated but don't forget you can get them along with live crawfish, shrimp, or clams for our Seafood Combo Special. Buy 3 lbs of any of these seafoods and get the 4th pound free. Free pound is the least expensive of the 3 lbs. Eating seafood will definitely get you in shape so you can really show off your muscles.
We recently posted about our Dynamite Bread. Well, if you like that spread on bread, try getting it on fresh oysters! Yep, we have Dynamite Baked Oysters. We take 3 fresh oysters (usually the bigger ones, whatever we have in stock at the time) and shuck them. We, of course, check them for freshness, and then cover it in our Dynamite spread, which is a combination of seafood, cheese, mayo, and some veggies. We bake them until the tops are crusted over and then serve them to you with some lemon wedges. If you love our Dynamite spread and our fresh, raw oysters, you must get this on your next visit.
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! And don't forget, we also have our Buy 3 lbs of seafood, get the 4th lb free deal going on all day, every day, even on Father's Day. We are large-party-friendly so bring all your dad's kids, too. Even the ones you despise. :-).
Our Seafood Combo Special is still going strong, all day, every day! Buy 2 pounds of live crawfish, shrimp, clams, or mussels and get the 3rd pound free. Free pound is always the least expensive seafood chosen. It's such a good deal that you can get multiple seafood combinations and make everyone in your party happy. Some might like a different sauce. Some might like it spicier than others. And still, others might not like the same types of seafood. You get to choose how many 3-lb seafood combinations to get. It'll be tough so try to get as many as you can.
Effective October 25, 2017, this deal has been changed to Buy 3 pounds, get the 4th pound free.
We almost always have at least 4 varieties of raw oysters in stock. Our current inventory includes Calm Coves, Blue Points, Malpeques, and Kumamotos. And, as usual, if you would like to have a sample of each, we can give you a sampler of in increments of half dozens. So you can get 6, 12, 18, etc of the sampler. The same goes for each oyster. You can get them in increments of 6. Mix and match. Pick what you like and then get more of that. We always check each oyster we serve for freshness and every order comes with in-house made horseradish and cocktail sauce.
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!
We get it. Sometimes, you just want some clams. We feel that way every once in a while. There's no peeling. There's no work. Just pick up the shell, scoop some sauce while you're at it, and put it to your mouth, and suck. Simple as that. We like it simple some times. It's just nice that clams is a good scooper for the sauce, too. And with our buy 3 lbs, get the 4th lb free seafood combo special, you can do that every time you come in. And you can get another 4 lbs of the other seafood: live crawfish, shrimp, and/or mussels. Yep, treat yo self. Indulge. Get multiple seafood combos.
We've had this item on the menu for about a year now and it nearly doesn't get the attention that it should. It's our Coconut Shrimp. We love giving you plenty of options as appetizers as you wait for your Cajun Seafood Combo so here's another one to make your decision that much tougher. We use large, tiger prawn shrimps so they're bigger than your average shrimp. We butterfly them, coat them in our coconut batter, and then fry them to perfection. It's accompanied by a delicious, fruity marmalade. Comes 5 to an order and it'll come out to your table fast! Come on in and give it a try. We know it'll become another favorite of yours.
It's Graduation Season and we're starting to get quite a few requests for large parties. Yep, we are capable of handling very large parties. Just give us a call ahead of time and we'll be sure to accommodate. And what better time to come in than while we're having our Seafood Combo Special where you can buy 2 lbs of seafood and get the 3rd lb for FREE!

So whether you're graduating from high school, college, preschool, or any kind of school, just come on in with all of your family and friends. We'll take care of ya. Just be sure not to use your gown to wipe your dirty hands afterwards.
We'll shuck these bad boys up real good for you. If you want a dozen, we'll shuck you a dozen. Just make sure to check our fresh oyster board when you come in because our selections change almost daily! We do always try to have Kumamotos on hand but there are no guarantees. Sometimes, we have an oyster freak come in and eat up our whole supply. It does happen. Luckily, we usually have at least 4 different types of fresh oysters and they're all sure to be yummy. Right now, we have Blue Points, Calm Coves, Eld Inlets, and Kumamotos. Get a dozen or two today! If not, then get a sampler!
We're not sure when or how overhead shots of food became so popular but here's ours of our Calamari. There's definitely a little trick to the shot as you want to have some sunlight coming in from one of the sides to accentuate the food. In any case, you should really come on in and give our Calamari a try if you haven't already done so. It's lightly battered with our own Cajun seasonings and of course, fried to perfection. Many like to eat them as is but we always serve them with a side of our own house cocktail sauce. Always great to get as you're awaiting your Cajun seafood combo.
Yep, in case you missed it, we added Cajun Fish Tacos to our menu about a year ago and everyone loves them! We also have Cajun Shrimp Tacos and they are also awesome, as well. As you can probably tell from the picture, it is loaded up with cabbage, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and dressed with 3 different sauces. Yep, they are extremely flavorful so if you can't handle an immense amount of flavor in one bite, don't get it. We don't advise it for people who like things bland.
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. It's also a good way to suggest trying out our other Seafood Combo boils during our buy 2 lbs, get the 3rd lb special going on all day, every day. So we have Garlic Butter, Cajun, Lemon Pepper, and our house sauce, Fire Sauce. Now go try all of them!
Despite the name, we love our Fish Sauce Wings and many of our regulars love them, too! If you haven't tried them out, you're definitely missing out. While you're waiting for your seafood combo order where when you buy 2 pounds of seafood and get the 3rd free, you can get an order of 5 or 10 delicious Fish Sauce wings. They come out piping hot so be sure to be careful when biting into that first wing. Served with some healthy celery and a side of ranch, though you really don't need it.
We always have at least 4 varieties of raw oysters in stock. This week, we have Blue Point, Eld Inlet, Bald Point, and Kumamotos. We'll do our best to add a new section to the site that will be updated of our current oysters in stock but you can always give the restaurant a call if you truly want the most up to date information about our oyster inventory. We serve them in increments of 6 and always check to see if they're fresh before serving them to you. If you can't decide on what you would like, you can always get our sampler which is a couple of oysters of each. And, you can always pick a certain oyster for an oyster shooter, if you'd like. Yep, you've got plenty of options.
Now that we have this buy 3 lbs, get the 4th lb free deal, you should really try and experiment with some of our other flavors besides the usual Fire Sauce. Our Garlic Butter Sauce is exactly how it sounds: garlicky and buttery. It's especially good if you have kids in the group or some wimpy adults who can't handle the spice. Our other flavors include Lemon Pepper and Cajun. Combining all three flavors (Garlic Butter, Lemon Pepper, Cajun) make up our Fire Sauce. We like getting our combos with clams and mussels because their shells double as scooping utensils so we can drink the sauce, too. Yum.
It's all we've been talking about for the past month or so. Maybe you should really listen up because you never know when we'll decide to end it. And then you'll be all like, "um, what happened to the buy 2 lbs get the 3rd lb deal?" And then, we'll be like, "um, sorry, you didn't act when we told you a gazillion times to come in." Yeah, that's the extent of it. Now, if you don't know, buy 2 lbs of seafood (choices include live crawfish, shrimp, clam, or mussels) and you'll get the 3rd lb free. Yep. Simple as that. Free pound of seafood is the least expensive of the 3 lbs. Additional restrictions and conditions apply. And, it is for a limited time. So come in. NOW!!!!!!

It's been a while since we acknowledged our best appetizer, our Cajun Garlic Fries. Although we have 8 different fries, this one still seems to be the most popular. The other type of fries are Cajun Chili, French, Cajun, Cheddar, Salt & Vinegar, Sour Cream & Onion, and Sweet Potato. Yep, that's quite a few to choose from. If you're unsure of which you would like the most, just get several! Most of them cost only $3.95 each for a basket. That's a great deal.

Our Oyster Tasting Event this fall conveniently lands on a Sunday, when many can take their time and come in whenever they want. Our first Oyster Tasting was on a weeknight so that was a bit difficult for everyone to attend. Some other changes that we have made to our tasting is that we will be serving 2 different oysters at a time so that you may enjoy each type individually. It's $48 for 2 dozen oysters. 6 different varieties means that you will get 4 of each type. And, these are not oysters we typically serve here. Please be sure to follow the link to register as we are starting to run out of space for this event. We will be taking reservations at the top of each hour for the entire day. http://www.thefirecrab.com/oyster-tasting-event-signup
