Peeled Shrimp

I have tried several different Cajun Shrimp Boils and Crab in a Bag is one of the best I have eaten, even compared to places you would expect to be good, Crab in a Bag definitely has their recipes down and proportions right. They definitely need a bigger place.

Hello my name is Veronica Campos this was the best tasting crab I have ever tasted. The seasoning is spot on. If you ever want an explosion of happiness in your mouth, then you need to try their food. Great service excellent food. This is now one of my favorite places to eat at.

Dungeness Crab

We come and enjoy the food here all of the time. The snow crab, fish and chips, clam chowder, chicken tenders, along with the dungeness crab are some of our favorites. The food is delicious and the service is great!

Peeled Shrimp

I've been a fan of Crab in the Bag since they have opened and I live for their Cajun Shrimp! I used to travel to LA at least once a month to Boiling Crab because I loved it so much and I was thrilled when Crab In A Bag opened in Bakersfield because it tastes just as great!

The Crab Lovers Special is my favorite to order for the family! Plenty of crab, LOVE that the sausage, corn, and potatoes are already included in the order. Seriously so much food that you need atleast 4 very hungry people to finish it all.

Crab Lovers Special

Me and my boyfriend tried Crab in a Bag a couple months ago and have been hooked on it since. Sadly we have not experienced dine in since we tried it during covid but eating it take out it still so amazing. I get the crab and my boyfriend get the peeled shrimp, I am not a big fan of sausage so my boyfriend and I switch our sausage and potatoes and it is the perfect meal for each of us. We both get the garlic and cajun so if you like garlic, spice, and flavor I recommend those two. We are excited to enjoy dine in when covid is over to try all the fried menu items fresh, I love fried calamari and catfish so those two are definitely the first I will be trying. I recommend Crab in a Bag to everyone and am starting to get my friends and family hooked on it.

Crab Lovers Special

Omg I am from Orange County and I am used to kickin crab or Boiling crab and when I moved here in Bakersfield not too long ago I was missing my OC Crab Place I was sad that the local Crab Place in Bakersfield is not so flavorful. OMG BOY I WAS SO WRONG. CRABintheBAG kept me more reason to NOT REGRET MY MOVE HERE IN BAKERSFIELD. I love it.. I ORDER EVERY TWO WEEKS. I AM MORE ADDICTED TO YOU GUYS than I was with Boiling Crab..
