Crab House Serves Up Barbecue, Soul Food And Southern Hospitality
By Sheridan Norfolk
So truth be told I had no idea what restaurant I wanted to write about today. I mean, I had my old faithfuls but I wanted to share something new, exciting and fresh. Of course I couldn’t figure out what that could be, so I took a lunch break. Food has a way of getting my mind stimulated and back in order. During my lunch break my co-worker Sydney insisted that we go to this place called the Crab House located in the inner city of Detroit on West 7 Mile Road and Evergreen.
Walking in I quickly noticed how nice and intimate the dining area was. The customer service was wonderful. I was greeted right as I walked through the door. Shortly after I took a seat, the owner walked in I got the chance to talk to him a little bit about his business. Eric, the owner of the Crab House, has been in business for five years. He was inspired to open up his restaurant to bring a new flavor, good customer service as well as a family environment to the city in which he is from. Eric’s goal was to leave a positive mark and footprint on the city of Detroit. Hearing all of the negative talk he decided to do something about it. Given the option to open up his business anywhere he chose the city of Detroit. To change the negative talk and replace it with positive actions. He’s using great hospitality, adopting schools, donating school supplies and giving back to the less fortunate.
Eric stated that all of their dishes are popular, from the Alfredo to the ribs down to the crab legs. Sydney’s favorite dish is the crab legs and shrimp dinner, which includes garlic potatoes, corn on the cob, and deviled eggs all drenched in delicious garlic butter. I decided to try the fried chicken and a side of fries covered in seasoning. I washed it down with a large cup of Kool-Aid. The service was great and the food was even better. Prepared to perfection and with love, you can’t go wrong. Mmm mmm GOOD!
