Known as the oldest Crab House in Chicago, King Crab House offers delicious seafood from crab to oysters with deals no other restaurant can beat. As soon as you walk in the door, all that catches your sight is the mountain of oysters and crab legs next to the bar top. King Crab House's seafood chef, Cy Sadaka, got his experience creating mouthwatering dishes by traveling the world and learning the art of seafood. He then went on the open up his own restaurant and has been successful ever since.

Serving the hungry Chicagoans for over 30 years, King Crab House offers specials Monday through Thursday of their quality seafood, such as King Crab and Jumbo Shrimp. Although the daily specials are to die for, the happy hour hits the jackpot with half priced appetizers and a few entrees from 4 to 6 PM, Monday through Friday. That includes Oysters on the half shell that they will shuck in front of you, which is a delicious snack or meal for any occasion. The atmosphere stays cozy with a full-bar and few tables in the front with dining-style seating in the back. King Crab House makes you feel as if you’re on a vacation along the coast, forgetting the busy streets and the windy roads of Chicago.
