A popular eating place for the locals. Very casual and the place is a quasi hole in the wall establishment but the food was great and reasonable. The seafood poboy sandwiches could not hold any more sea food.

Crabby Jack's was recommended by someone local. Good thing because otherwise we might not have noticed it, and if we had noticed it might have gone by its "unpretentious" (to be nice about it) exterior. Interior is brighter and upbeat but simple. My shrimp and oyster po'boy was excellent, the remoulade sauce with another person's shrimp seemed to me a... More

Stopped by because I have been wanting fried chicken for the past few days. Was heavily considering Popeye's. Friends and family steered me to Crabby Jack's. Crowded and full of locals picking up lunch usually means a good meal. It was. Just good. Maybe I like my spice than the next local but everything seemed bland except for the jalapeño... More

Crabby Jack's has a very plain exterior, but the cozy interior has very interesting artwork, all about. You have to order at the counter. We ordered fried seafood plates- Catfish & Shrimp and Catfish. Both had large portions and were accompanied by nice side salads. We found the food to be good, overall, and we recommend this place.

I was visiting a friend who lives in NOLA, and of course the tradition is to have a Po-boy he promised me that this place is the best in town for a Po-boy. Well, I wasn't disapointed. We had the catfish po-boy, red beans and rice, macaroni and cheese and of course Barq's rootbeer. This is really the best Po-boy... More

Went here on a friends referral. It was all locals eating here. Ordered fried chicken , gumbo, dirty rice. Was informed we would have to wait 20 minutes for chicken. It was piping hot and delicious. Could be a bit more seasoned but was fresh and tasty. Gumbo was good and flavorful. Service staff were all very friendly. Will go... More

Crabby Jacks on Jefferson Hwy. features a very unique seating arrangement. You have to enjoy eating together with strange people, who will become like part of your family during the eating experience. Which proves great food and good music could tame the anxiety of a hungry crowd. OR something like that, oh, just have a beer! The creole style prepared... More

We were searching for the best po boy in town and think we found it here! The first time we came here we were a little worried that it would be like a Cajun McDonalds, but we were pleasantly surprised. Anything on the menu is delicious!!
