About Us

Views of the New York Harbor from Brooklyn Crab’s upper deck.

Owners of the reputable Alma Restaurant on Columbia St. in Brooklyn, New York built Brooklyn Crab, completing it in June 2012. An homage to Maryland style crab shacks, built on two decks overlooking the New York harbor, it’s a hub of year-round fun, games, and food. This time around these two visionaries whistle entirely to their own tune with a vibe that reflects their own passions; fishing, family and seafood.

Brooklyn Crab, offers the freshest, and most sustainable whenever possible, seafood fare from all the way up the Atlantic coast and down to the Gulf of Mexico. Menu items are prepared in both traditional – regionally grounded, and inventive ways. In addition to an extensive raw bar, Brooklyn Crab also serves salads, soups, and sandwiches to please both crustacean and carnivore palates.

Please see our menu, reservations and events pages for further info on those topics. A few answers to FAQ’s below:
