Crab Cellar's Unlimited Lobster Experience

As we sent Crab Cellar out to sea, we started to get shellfish about seeing our guests again. After several schooners and reminiscing on the good ole’ unlimited days, our buoy of hope came to us: Unlimited Steamed Maine Lobster.

Join us below deck this holiday season on Friday and Saturday nights for our newest rendition: Maine Lobster, Prime Burgers & more. If you’ve been to Crab Cellar, well then you will know the drill: we keep serving until you say “when!” Although the food is unlimited, reservations are not. Reservations are available Friday & Saturday nights November 26 - December 30 starting at $95 per person plus tax (gratuity not included).

Wait one second! Where did the crab go?

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 as of October 1st 2021.

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

We look forward to welcoming you to this new lobster holiday experience. Still need a crab fix? Please visit our sister restaurant, Quality Crab & Oyster Bah.
