WILLIAMSBURG-King Crab Juicy Seafood on Richmond Road in Williamsburg appears to have closed after less than a year in operation.
King Crab Juicy Seafood is a chain seafood restaurant popular for its Cajun Seafood boils. The restaurant first announced plans to open its Williamsburg location in July 2021 in the space formerly occupied by an Applebee’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill at 1640 Richmond Rd. King Crab Juicy Seafood, which also has locations in Virginia Beach and in Richmond, first opened its Williamsburg restaurant in February 2022.
Social media reports indicate the restaurant has closed, though it is unclear as to when. No one picked up the phone when Peninsula Chronicle attempted to call the restaurant on January 9 and its online ordering menu option has been disabled.
A new establishment is already planning to take over the space. On Tuesday, January 10, the Williamsburg Architectural Review Board is scheduled to hear details regarding signage of a new business called Ramen Talk at the location.
The Architectural Review Board, which will meet at 6:30pm at the Stryker Center at 412. N. Boundary St., will also hear signage requests for Made and Super Chix Chicken & Custard, two new businesses that are slated to open on College Row in the Midtown Row mixed-used development later this year.
