“Fresh Seafood - Well Prepared”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Kickin Crab is a clean, upbeat, a little noisy at times, great venue for fresh and well prepared seafood. We tried the fried Oyster appetizer and it was very good, fresh and hot! I had the Cajun Tilapia plate and my wife had the Cajun Trout plate. These were both specials and prepared perfectly. Not dry or raw and well seasoned. Looking at what others were enjoying a lot of Crawfish, Shrimp and Crab legs. They offer several seasonings and levels of spice.

The ambiance is definitely family youth oriented. Paper plates, plastic utensils, butcher paper table covering, and drinks in paper cups scream casual.

Many of the menu items are market price which is clearly posted on chalk boards.
