    The first thing to get at the Kickin' Crab is the shrimp. The high meat-to-effort ratio is the best value for the buck. Read more

    I'm Cajun and my family is from Louisiana. This is neither Cajun nor Creole. However, it's a great place for fresh crab!

    The shrimp here is so good and make sure to get the sausages in your order because they give the food so much flavor.

    Add the lemon to the salt and pepper. Then you dip your seafood in that sauce.
