Art's Crab Shak, Oakland

We went there tonight for the first time. Had driven by for years.

Shared a medium bucket of crab for $42. And it was good! Nicely cooked. Drenched in a peppery/lemon-y garlic butter and mushrooms. Garlic bread on the side. I had a Corona, my husband a Heineken. By the end we were cheerfully covered in garlic butter, made good use of wash 'n dri's they provide.

A funky place--you have to pay before they'll bring you your food (presumably people would eat and leave w/out paying?).

Wanted to try the hush puppies and collard greens and okra--another time. Curious re other folks' experience w/ those sides and anything else on the menu.
