New Cajun Seafood Restaurant is Coming Soon to Latham
There's a new seafood place coming to Route 7 in Latham.
The location that used to be a Ruby Tuesday's at 675 Troy-Schenectady Road now has a big banner covering the Ruby Tuesday's logo that reads, "The Mighty Crab Coming Soon"
The Ruby Tuesday's location closed in September 2019 and has sat vacant since the closing. According to the article in the Times Union, the new location might be associated with two locations on Long Island.
The Mighty Crab was started in Jackson, MS, and encourages you to “Get Your Hands Dirty” and indeed that is the best way to enjoy The Mighty Crab’s fresh seafood. Choose among King Crab legs, blue crabs, Snow crabs, and even colossal Dungeness crabs purchased daily for freshness and flavor.
When you look at the menu for The MIghty Crab it looks like most "Crab Shack" type places, with two main differences. One, it focuses on cajun style seafood. Second, everything is priced by the pound.
Looking at the menu, ordering looks easy. Simply choose your favorite seafood and choose your preparation from Cajun-style, lemon pepper, garlic, and butter, or the “Juicy Special.” You can also choose the level of spiciness from not spicy to medium, hot, and extra for an extra kick. All seafood dinners come with corn on the cob and potato. The seafood is priced by the pound, starting at just $11 per pound.
You can even make your own seafood combo with a minimum of a half-pound of any two items along with corn and potato.
I love seafood and especially cajun style so I'm looking forward to The Mighty Crab opening up soon.
