South Beach Seafood Festival: In The Kitchen with The Lobster Shack and MayITakeABite

Enjoy This In The Kitchen Guest Article By MayITakeABite, Who Got Ready For The South Beach Seafood Festival With Chris, the Owner of The Lobster Shack and CJ’s Crab Shack

Hey South Beach Seafood Festival Lovers! May from MayITakeABite here, AKA #Avocadogirl.

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Chris, the owner of The Lobster Shack, and I’m ready to give you the inside scoop of what his new restaurant is bringing to the sand on Saturday, October 20th!

The Lobster Shack is located right on South Point Drive –a very convenient location if you’re headed towards the beach.

They currently serve 8 different lobster rolls that hold SO MUCH meat. I tried their South Beach Lobster roll, Chris’ favorite, and it was out-of-this-world! On top of 4 ½ ounces of delicious lobster meat, they serve it with bacon, avocado (my favorite), and a jalapeno cole slaw!

Uffff, heavenly! Besides lobster rolls, they also offer oysters, stone crabs, seared tuna, a variety of tacos and soups, and of course, more lobster!

Chris’ family has been in the seafood business since 1921, when his grandparents arrived from Greece. His grandfather arrived in Yorktown, and immediately invented their famous “deviled crab”; a crab cake, baked and served in its original shell.

That family love for seafood has been passed down generation-to-generation and it runs through their veins. So much so, Chris opened up his first business with his cousin in 2007, called CJ’s Crab Shack – also located on South Beach!

CJ’s Crab Shack has been participating in the South Beach Seafood Festival every year! Now, they’re bringing their second concept out for seafoodies to enjoy on Saturday, October 20th.

After 11 successful years with CJ’s, Chris wanted to venture out and open up his own Lobster Roll spot. He envisioned a casual place where anyone can go enjoy a delicious lobster roll for a reasonable price. In early 2018, they opened The Lobster Shack and they’re excited to make their festival debut at the South Beach Seafood Festival!

The Lobster Shack + South Beach Seafood Festival

As I asked Chris what guests can expect on the sand, he smiled and said “Lobster rolls baby!”

It really can’t get any better than that! Besides their incredible lobster rolls, the Lobster shack will also be showcasing grilled oysters, and tuna tartare.

Don’t be surprised if they come up with other amazing options, as these guys put together some pretty impressive stuff. I can’t wait to visit their pop up cafe in a few short weeks! In the meantime, be sure to stop by any time you’re on Miami Beach.
