IT's SHAKING TIME!

 
 
 
Shaking Red.png

Shaking up fresh New England shellfish with bold Cajun flavors, inspired by the communal crab boils of New Orleans.

A meal at Shaking Crab is nothing but an adventure! Glove up, bib up, and get ready to dive into a bag full of succulent seafood and extras, all swimming in a delicious garlic butter sauce, influenced by the Gulf Coast and created to your liking.  Each location melds the unique Shaking Crab culture with the local vibes. 

Prepare to get messy!!

Shaking Crab opened it's first location in Newton, MA in December 2015. Since then, Shaking Crab has expanded to three more locations, both in the Boston and New York City areas, and there's no sign of stopping!
