TJ J., who reviewed the new spot on Feb. 3, noted "Not bad food, but the goofy costumes and affectations of the waitstaff was not my brand. Just looking for tasty food, not some sort of creole experience in North Phoenix."

Yelper Judy N. wrote, "Our server was amazing, she was so attentive and personable. Our food came out in a short amount of time, and it was great and filled with flavor! Will definitely be back."

Angry Crab Shack & BBQ is now open from 11 a.m.–10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Sunday and 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
