A casual place for a big group to eat crabs?

Juxie | Jul 2, 201704:01 PM     2

Years ago when I was a kid, we used to have big family gatherings at Bud's where we'd sit at a long table with piles of boiled crabs and eat and visit. Bud's ain't there no mo' and I need suggestions. I'm thinking it may be 20 to 40 people, so our own room would be good. Mostly, I'm looking for casual atmosphere, good boiled seafood, pitchers of beer and easy parking (nothing in the Quarter.) Any suggestions? Also, I understand that this has been a bad year for crabs. Open to other possible venues for a meal of slow eating and lots of talking.
