The Angry Crab Shack began in Mesa, AZ in November 2013 as the brainchild of former NFL player and longtime restaurant owner Ron Lou who saw a need for a fun, affordable, high quality seafood restaurant and set out to fill that void. Using his 35+ years’ experience purchasing and serving live seafood, he began offering a wide variety of seafood options in a “boil bag” as well as other seafood and non-seafood offerings. Before long, the “Angry Crab Shack” was a sensation. Seafood lovers from near and far found their way to a local Angry Crab Shack to experience our outstanding food, personalized service, and genuine hospitality.

Angry Crab Shack currently has seven locations in the valley including Mesa, Ahwatukee, Phoenix, Goodyear, Peoria and Tucson.

This latest location will be located inside of Happy Valley Town Center at 2501 W. Happy Valley Rd (the previous site of Applebees), and have their liquor license currently pending.
