Update (Dec.20): I recently learned the Crab Cellar closed on November 20th. I’m so sadden by this news. I had planned to go there again, but because of COVID numbers and the small space of the restaurant, I hadn’t gone back. Check out the review to see the offerings the Crab Cellar provided. I hope Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants will replace it with some good!
All You Can Eat Alaskan King Crab Legs. That right there is enough to get my attention. I’ve seen the Crab Cellar on a few foodie local tv shows as well as on national networks like the Food Network and Travel Channel. Well I finally had a chance to sit down and enjoy the scrumptiousness. The restaurant allows a certain amount of reservations per month. I checked in May and June, but October wasn’t available. I called the restaurant to learn that I had to wait until July for October reservations. Ha! I might have been one of the first reservations as I was ready on July 1st.
To get to the Crab Cellar, you have to enter into the Oyster Bah restaurant and go down the stairs to the “cellar” to reach the Crab Cellar restaurant. The restaurant doesn’t seat a lot of people (approximately 30), which now I understand why it took so long to get a restaurant. I actually liked the intimate setting. Plus I can get dirty comfortably.
Besides all you can eats crab legs, there’s also all you can eat burgers. These aren’t your typical burgers like the fast-food chains. They are made from prime beef topped with Roquefort and crispy onions. You can also order bottomless sides: mac and cheese, fries, jalapeño hush puppies, and broccoli. While making your online reservation, you have the choice to add on all you can eat filet mignon.
Yes, lots of choices and options. You’ll be sure to have a great experience.
