Crab Cellar's Unlimited Lobster Experience

The next iteration in Chicago’s premiere unlimited seafood experience is here! Starting January 2022, Crab Cellar welcomes you to enjoy an all-new menu every Thursday, Friday and Saturday that features endless Steamed Maine Lobster, Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail with homemade cocktail sauce and Maryland-style Blue Crab Dip starting at $105 per person, plus tax. Guests will also enjoy unlimited side dishes like Mac & Cheese and French Fries. Enjoy this newest offering in the cozy dining room at Crab Cellar that is located within sister restaurant Quality Crab & Oyster Bah in Lincoln Park.

Reservations are required and can be made for parties of 2-4 people via Tock. Crab Cellar is open Friday - Saturday from 3:30 PM - 8:30 PM and Sunday 4:00 PM - 8:30 PM. The unlimited seafood experience is available for dine-in only.

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. Still need a crab fix? Head to our sister restaurant, Quality Crab & Oyster Bah.
