TGIF … Thank Goodness It’s Fresh
At the award-winning Giant Crab Seafood Restaurant, quantity takes a back seat to quality. We offer the freshest, best-tasting seafood buffet in town.
From the minute you see The Giant Crab, you know it’s not just another all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Sure, it specializes in serving seafood, but it does so in such tremendous, really, “giant” fashion with an emphasis on freshness. A steadfast and diligent crew keeps the buffet well-stocked and, you guessed it, fresh.
Overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway in the Restaurant Row section of Highway 17, the restaurant resembles an authentic Fisherman’s Wharf Village. One side of the structure features a 40-foot waterfall and a lazy river wraps around the entire village. There is even a 50-foot lighthouse reminiscent of those still standing in Nova Scotia. The real eye-catcher, however, is the big, fat giant crab perched just above the entrance. He’s affectionately referred to as “Tommy.” He leads the way to the overwhelming feast that waits inside!
The Giant Crab boasts, I dare say, a “gigantic” array of as much seafood as you can imagine and is simply the ultimate choice in tasty buffet dining. It’s spectacular, to say the least, and will cause seafood lovers to moan with delight. In addition to broiled, fried and baked seafoods, mouthwatering dishes like Crab Imperial, stuffed mushrooms, Oysters Rockefeller, seafood strudel are found on the, I can’t help it …. “colossal” buffet. There’s also a Steam Bar that offers a “boat-load” variety of steamed and cooked shellfish including peel-and-eat shrimp, steamed oysters, mussels, clams and those much-loved crablegs.
And, if your hungry-man appetite doesn’t call for seafood, that’s not a problem! Stop at the seemingly “never-ending” carving station for juicy prime rib, cooked melt-in-your-mouth tender and delicious Virginia Ham, roast beef, barbecued beef ribs and delectable Feta Chicken. Along with pasta that’s made to order and naturally, there are plenty of fresh vegetables to compliment it all. Oh, there is still more … an extensive variety of savory homemade soups, outrageous salads, freshly baked bread and a magnificent dessert bar laden with scrumptious cakes, cobblers, fresh fruit (in season), ice cream and even our award winning Kataifi.
The younger maties of the family will love the Kids Corner, a buffet filled with the foods kids love. Hamburgers, pizza, chicken fingers, corn dogs, hot dogs and french fries all are there! Also, be sure to visit the Pirate’s Island Tavern where you will find lots of cold, frosty beverages to cool you off after a day of fun in the sun.
By the way, don’t miss the Giant Crab gift shop on your way out. You can take home your own big, fat giant crab on a t-shirt, cap or souvenir glass. There are hundreds of souvenir and gift items to choose from. Take home that special souvenir to remember your visit to the Giant Crab!
