Lewey's Crab House/Soul Food Cafe

A couple of coworkers of mine decided to try out Lewey's Crab House last week. As soon as I heard about it, I invited myself! I have been wanting to try it for a while, so I couldn't pass up the (non)invitation! Lewey's is a take out place, but they do offer delivery. We opted for delivery since no one wanted to give up part of their lunch to drive down there :)
I got the Garlic Shrimp Combo, and it came with corn, potatoes, sausage, and a hard boiled egg. I was shocked (in a good way) with how much food you get! I had tons of shrimp and lots of sides. All of the items in the box are seasoned and taste wonderful. Due to the delivery, the food was a little cold, but that is an easy fix. I'm sure that it would have been just fine if we went there and ordered instead.



Here are my coworker's orders:

Smothered Pork Chops w/ collard greens and Mac & Cheese served with rice and cornbread

Baked chicken w/ lima beans and mixed veggies served with rice and cornbread

Fried Whiting w/ collard greens and Mac & Cheese served with rice and cornbread

Large Crab Combo w/shrimp, potatoes, corn, and sausage
 
 Verdict - Delicious! Everyone else seemed to be pleased with their food and it all looked really good. I would really like to try the crabs, but there is no way that I can get them at work. I am accident prone and you know I would have crab all over me by the time I am done. We almost had a crab accident when my coworker David cracked a crab and we thought it hit Karen. Even though that would have been hilarious for us, she would have been mad :) If you live work in the area, give Lewey's a try. They are a great value and the food is great!

  1. Coworker David here, Jill is spot on the food had great flavor and for the amount of food they give for the price is crazy. The garlic crab combo was great! I can't wait to try something else I was like a kid in a candy store looking at everyone else food. I will do pickup next time. Both of the employees I dealt with very friendly and had great manners.
