Crazy Crab, which just opened about two months ago in Fairfax, specializes in fresh seafood, including everything from snow crab to sea scallops to fried catfish. Customize your choices with a variety of seasonings, such as Cajun, Garlic Butter, Lemon Pepper, or Crazy Special (a mix of all three flavors.) Crazy Crab’s owners, Ashley and Tony Jiang, focus on bold, unique flavors — instead of using Old Bay, they combine Chinese and Cajun, but also Indian and Thai, with cilantro, parsley, garlic, lime, and basil. Opt for the All-You-Can-Eat option, which is $39.95 per person and includes endless seafood options served family style.
Crazy Crab is a casual, friendly spot with a seafood-themed dining room complete with anchors, fishing nets, and oversized crabs adorning the walls. The tables are covered with paper, and plastic gloves and towelettes are provided – eating local seafood is all about getting messy. Visit Crazy Crab Sunday through Thursday 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
