Q&A with Gwen & Fifi
Tell us about the inception of the Crabby Shack.FBC: We opened our doors in 2014 as a comforting destination in the city, similar to seafood shacks in Nantucket. This is an oasis created from a place of love and hard work, providing delicious food and great vibes. We know many of our customers by name and they’re like family. Without them, we wouldn’t be here.
What’s your go-to order?FBC: The Dungeness crab-leg platter with corn and potatoes. We serve it with our signature beer sauce and a mix of garlic and spicy butter.
GW: The crab roll tossed in warm garlic butter on a toasted Martin’s bun. Plus, honey butter cornbread—a crowd favorite!
How do you connect to the coast?GW: We love the ocean and are avid beachgoers. Our crab is wild caught, and we understand the importance of keeping our waters free from pollution—not to mention the dangers of overfishing for the ecosystem. We’re mindful of waste and do our best to minimize its effect. Our neighbors repurpose the crab shells for gardening!
