We are a small family owned and operated restaurant and pride ourselves on making everything from scratch. We make sure to spend extra time and quality care to guarantee that we cook out of love and are eager to serve it.
We have always had the love for food and what is better than sharing great food with the ones you love, your family. We hope that you enjoy our food and the experience at our restaurant as we share a part of our family tradition with you.
My parents were the first generation of our family to reside in the United States and started their lives in the US with literally nothing but a few sets of clothes and $20. Working 60-80 hours a week to make ends meet, my parents usually left the cooking to my older cousin and I. We cooked and cared for our 4 younger siblings.
This is when my love for food started to develop as we explored different flavors and ingredients.
In 2012, my wife and I started a small cafe in Southeast Arlington. While running the business, my wife was pregnant and always had a craving for crawfish and crab legs. That when the different seafood concoctions began.
I never had the intention of starting a seafood restaurant, but I started to find that friends and family grew addicted to the flavors they were experiencing. I then added it to our menu at our small cafe.
A seafood lover and long patron of the cafe had visions of developing a restaurant and approached me with his ideas. The Crab Station was then born to share the great food and dining experience with the world.
The 2 have become great business partners, friends, and like family.
