Chicago's only all you can eat Alaskan King Crab & Prime Burger Experience.

Located down the stairs at Quality Crab & Oyster Bah in Lincoln Park, Crab Cellar is your destination for delicious food and a great time.

The joint serves steamed Alaskan King Crab Legs and Prime Burgers made with Prime Beef and topped with Roquefort and crispy onions until you say "when" starting at $149.95 per person plus tax (gratuity not included).

Go overboard and add on unlimited Filet Mignon! To pair with Crab Cellar’s upscale version of "Surf & Turf", guests can round out their meals with bottomless sides. Order comfort food sides such as the Mac & Cheese, Boardwalk Fries or Jalapeño Hush Puppies, and they become bottomless for the rest of your experience.

Reservations are required.

Due to the unprecedented scarcity of Alaskan King Crab Legs we have made the difficult decision to pause Crab Cellar's Endless King Crab Experience starting October 1st.

Crab Cellar has always been an unlimited experience because we believe that when it comes to crab, the more the merrier.

Crab Cellar reservations and to-go meals will be on hiatus until we can once again provide you with the ultimate unlimited experience. Stay tuned for the next installment of Crab Cellar coming to you Fall 2022.
