The Wait for “The Best Tail in Town” is Over!

The best seafood restaurant in San Marcos is open for business!  Ready for some Dirty Fun?  Grab a crowd and head on in!

It’s as easy as one, two, three…

Step 1: Choose your catch! Our raw oysters on the half-shell make for a great start. For your seafood boil, choose from delicious Dungeness crab, king crab legs, snow crab legs, shrimp, lobster, clams, mussels and crawfish.

Step 2: Choose your flavor! Select Rajun Cajun (our original seasoning), Garlic Sauce, Lemon Pepper – or get a mix of all three with our most popular flavor, The Whole Sha-Bang!®

Step 3: Choose your spice! You can go from plain and simple to “I can’t feel my mouth hot!”
If you’re in the mood for something crispy and crunchy, we have a wide selection: fried soft-shell crab, fried catfish, fried oysters, fried shrimp, hot wings, and more.

Don’t forget the sides! Complete your seafood feast with gumbo, potatoes, corn on the cob, sausage, and more. For all of you French fry fans, we have Cajun fries, sweet potato fries, lemon pepper fries, and the fan-favorite CRABBER FRIES that come topped with lump crab meat and a craveable sauce!

So join us at The Boiling Crab San Marcos where you can roll up your sleeves, don a TBC bib, and get down with our fresh seafood, bold flavors, and the “best tail in town”!
