Located at 4218 W Wendover Ave in Greensboro, NC 27409, The Juicy Crab store #50 is excited to welcome the public to its grand opening at noon on November 7th. Check out their full menu here. Phone number is (336) 285-6299.
My husband and I attended their media night to sample some of their cajun inspired seafood and enjoyed the fried calamari as an appetizer. It comes with marinara dipping sauce and it came out piping hot, which is always a good thing to know it's fresh!
For the seafood boil (lowcountry boil), I got the 1/2 pound of shrimp and snow crab cluster, which came with corn on the cob and potatoes. I loved the crab and shrimp - both were flavored well and I just love that satisfying feeling of cracking open the crab leg at just the right spot to get ALL the meat out. My husband tried the spicy sausage and crawfish which he couldn't even finish because it was such a generous portion. The seafood comes out in steamer bags individual to each person, and you untie them and then put the contents on your plate (or eat straight from the bag). All the juices and spices are in the bag and they give you a bucket to put all your shells and trash in as you eat.
You can customize the seasoning and spice level on your seafood as well - I opted for lemon pepper while my husband got the Old Bay and we both requested the medium spice level which we thought was just right. We both like spicy food and it had a decent kick to it, but wasn't over the top.
They provide you with plastic gloves, a bib and wet wipes, all of which we made good use of because it gets quite messy. Don't be afraid to put them on as everyone uses them here and the table has a plastic liner as well so it makes for easy cleanup.
The restaurant has a fun nautical theme with upbeat music and a roomy interior consisting of both booths and tables.
There's plenty of parking for the restaurant and it's an easy to access area off Wendover right by David's Bridal and Staples.
Come check them out starting November 7th and enjoy some delicious seafood (they also have chicken wings and chicken tenders if seafood isn't your thing)! Until November 29th, they also have a birthday deal going on, so all you November birthday people might want to look into that if you're looking for somewhere to celebrate. Glad to see this addition to Greensboro. You can read about the history of how The Juicy Crab began here.
