The Crab Station, a laid-back destination for all things seafood, has officially opened its doors in Deep Ellum.

The restaurant quietly made its debut at 2813 Commerce Street, taking over the space formerly occupied by Planet Sub, according to a Facebook post. As Eater reported back in March, this outpost makes for eight locations for the Crab Station, with future restaurants outside of DFW in the works.

Everything from crawfish and shrimp to lobster and whole octopus is on the menu at the Crab Station, all boiled and tossed in a blend of spicy seasonings. Fried catfish and shrimp are also on the menu, along with “sacks,” or bulk orders of crawfish, shrimp, and crab that can feed a crowd. Cajun staples like crab gumbo, etouffee, and jambalaya round out the options.

Now in its “soft opening” phase, the Crab Station is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
