Wild Crab brings southern flavor to Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Cajun flavors are about to turn up the heat in southwest Fort Wayne. Wild Crab, a new restaurant to the community, will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24 at 6282 W. Jefferson Blvd.

Wild Crab is a Cajun-inspired seafood restaurant, specializing in seafood boils that can be customized for every taste. Guests can start by choosing their favorite catch: crab or crab legs, lobster tail, crawfish, clams, mussels, shrimp, or scallops; adding sauce; and selecting a spice level from plain to fire. Po’ boys, fry baskets, and desserts are available, as are lunch specials. Wild Crab is family-friendly, with a kids’ menu for children ages 10 and under.

The restaurant is the brainchild of Amber Wu, who first experienced the Cajun seafood boil concept while on vacation in Florida.

“I loved the taste and the concept so much, I decided to learn how to open a Cajun restaurant of my own,” Wu said. “Our team is very excited to bring our unique flavors to Fort Wayne. We promise a meal to remember.”

The Fort Wayne location is Wild Crab’s second; the first store opened last year in South Bend. The new location brings about 20 new jobs to the community, and Wu hopes to add more stores in coming years.

Wild Crab’s ribbon-cutting ceremony is open to the public.
