Dining Discovery: Craw Station
Neighbor to 88 Manor Market and Great Wall Restaurant, southern-style seafood restaurant Craw Station really stands out. Known for its shellfish boils and decadent desserts, this small restaurant attracts diners from all walks of life.
Craw Station’s bold menu is well-received in this Washington Manor neighborhood. The main dishes feature crawfish, lobster, Dungeness crab, shrimp, clams, and mussels, and can be prepared simply boiled, lemon pepper, garlic butter, or house Cajun. The boils can be adjusted to your preference, from non-spicy to dynamite. Diners can also choose add-ons for the boils, such as corn on the cob, sausage, and potatoes.
While you wait for your shellfish boil, you can enjoy some of the many appetizers on the menu. Cajun fried catfish, gumbo, okra soup, and oysters on the half-shell are stand-out dishes. If you wish to take a detour from the seafood immersion, try the Cajun spicy chicken wings, or the fried chicken and waffle special.
Complement your meal with some flavorful side orders, such as the brown butter garlic noodles, fried okra, Cajun or sweet potato fries, and if after all of that you still have an appetite, endulge in some fluffy beignets or decadent deep-fried Oreo cookies.
People with a hankering for some authentic, southern-style seafood travel significant stretches to try Craw Station. Luckily for San Leandrans with similar appetites, they don’t have to go very far!
