What to Expect
The Crab Barrack is arguably the fastest growing seafood joint in the Magic City.
If you are looking for mouthwatering Low Country seafood, this is your place. Favorites on the menu include “Get Your Hands Dirty” seasonal Blue Crab, snow crab legs, mussels, lobster, shrimp and clams — all served with corn, potatoes & sausage.
They also have a wide variety of fried baskets and sides.
5th Location in Birmingham
The new location at Five Points West is the fifth The Crab Barrak location in the Birmingham area. This past July, The Crab Barrack opened its 4th establishment at Five Points South in the former Brennan’s Irish Pub (1108 20th Street South, Birmingham 35205). The other three sites are at:
- 9417 Parkway East, Birmingham 35215
- 7861 Crestwood Blvd. Birmingham 35210
- 103 Bessemer Super Highway, Midfield 35228
Bham Now visited the Crossplex location this past Labor Day weekend.
It is next to J Wings with plenty of parking. Their manager, Kevin, told Bham Now that the fish will be fresh and perfectly seasoned.
We asked Birmingham City Councilor Carol Clarke about the newest addition to the neighborhood.
“I welcome the addition of another casual dining option in Five Points West/Crossplex to serve area residents, business owners, and visitors. I also expect to be a frequent customer.”
