Shaking Crab - NewtonShaking Crab - Newton
50 reviews
$$$$
Seafood | Newton, Boston Suburbs

We love the shellfish served in plastic bags! It’s messy, fun, and fresh! Excellent professional service. No other restaurants provide such a great experience! Watch your teenagers willingly put their devices away for an hour. It’s worth going just to see that happen. My personal favorite is the Alaskan king crab legs. Easy to get the meat out. Cheerfully prepared with absolutely no sauce but scrumptious nonetheless. My only suggestion would be increasing the number of available craft beers or alternately improving the current list. Extremely highly recommended! More

Excellent neighborhood restaurant. Great selection of beers. Food was really very good, not gourmet, but solid pub food. I had an excellent salad, fresh, good size and not (to my liking) overdressed. I also had the sliders, which were excellent. I would highly recommend. More

We celebrated my husband’s birthday here. I let them know it was his birthday when I made reservation. Our meals were really cooked well (steak dinners) and to order. We had a delicious mousse (shared) for dessert. We are seniors who live in the neighborhood. Great to have a place right nearby where we enjoy the food and are treated kindly. What more could you wish for in a neighborhood eatery? This restaurant is popular with families too. More

Steakhouse | Newton, Boston Suburbs

we went on sat night and I was looking forward to the live music, unfortunately there was a bat mitzvah party going on, so there was no band and this party took over half of the main restaurant. The food and service was excellent, but it was hard to make up for the 40s elevator music playing for the bat mitzvah party and the awkwardness of the scene that night. I will definitely return, but this time I'll make sure there isn't another party going on. More
