Sea Side Crab House, 6799 Wilson Blvd., #5, Falls Church, VA, 703-241-CRAB (2722) (where Saigon Garden used to be) (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Don Rockwell]
An excellent seafood house in Eden Center. The soft shell crab is some of the best around. The crawfish are served Cajun style, although not as spicy as you would get in southwest Louisiana. It’s small and not a great place to sit and chat inside, but absolutely worth having in the repertoire. Outdoor seating is available. Right now it is my go-to choice for crabs. Make sure you use lots of the lime, salt and pepper sauce they give you.
Just went to this place today, We didn’t really have any expectations we were just happy there was outdoor seating so we could bring our puppy with us…Man were we bowled over! Everything was delicious! The array of sauces and combinations alone were great. The soft shell crab was the best I’ve ever had, The oysters were fresh, and the Vietnamese beef stew was just like how my grandmother used to make. If you get a chance go!
