‘Tis the season for giving, and the crustacean gods have given Shell Shack—and, by extension, you—an early gift this year. Crawfish has already hit Shell Shack restaurants and all stores are stocked and ready to serve. This is about a month early, as crawfish typically doesn’t become available until January, so let’s count our blessings.
Shell Shack’s crawfish will be priced at an affordable $11.99 per pound and can be incorporated into the restaurant’s famous Seafood Boils, which are infused with delicious seasonings, spiced to your preferred heat level and joined by your choice of sausages, potatoes and corn. Or get a plate of crawfish and pair it with a side, like rice, fries, hushpuppies and salads. You can’t go wrong. But to go right, you must first stop into your nearest Shell Shack location.

The days are getting longer, and the weather is getting warmer, but at Shell Shack, late spring and early summer are beloved for another reason: crawfish. The crustaceans are in season and ready to be shucked, slurped and enjoyed with friends, so to celebrate the humble creature, Shell Shack is hosting a crawfish boil at each of its locations.
After a short wait you are approached table-side by a perky member of the waitstaff who scribbles their name on the white butcher paper clad table and asks for your favorite beverage. There is plenty to choose from at Shell Shack, now with locations spread across Dallas and Fort Worth, no doubt with more on the way. We order, we drink. Then the decision time arrives, what to order from this seemingly vast menu.
Without a doubt, crab is to be on the short list of what to order. But it is nearing crawfish season, and even though we are told they are not the largest we will find, those are coming once the weather stabilizes and they are large enough now to enjoy. There are no conspiracies to keep large crawfish from the mitts of Dallasites as your Houston friends might try to tell you. Shell Shack procures the best graded crawfish available. Think mid-March, around St. Pat’s Day for the best crop. Consider that the luck of the Irish. Continue reading →
There is no doubt that the people at Crave enjoy great seafood, and what a marvelous time of year to enjoy delicious creatures from the sea.
