Now Open!

Sebastian’s Southern Crab at 843 N 98th street is now open Thursdays to Sundays from 11am to 9pm. We were kept waiting by a number of setbacks out of the control of the establishment’s owners, who used that time to ensure a perfected menu and a meal you won’t forget. The menu features a myriad of well-seasoned seafood platters, as well as a variety of fried chicken dishes, and indulgent desserts. Enjoy a hot seafood boil, shrimp and grits, or sweet potato maple cheesecake, and forget for just a minute that you’re entering the cold season in a landlocked state. Follow along on Facebook for more pesce pics, fried fish photos, and sugary shots.
