National Crab Restaurant Clawing Its Way to Hunt Valley

Joe’s Crab Shack is on its way to building its fourth Maryland restaurant at Hunt Valley Towne Centre, according to the Baltimore County liquor board.
The board approved a liquor license transfer to the Houston-based restaurant chain, says Mike Mohler, chief administrator of the Baltimore County Board of Liquor License Commissioners. The building will go on a pad site opposite Outback Steakhouse and Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Mohler says.
“We’re very excited about having them in Baltimore County,” Mohler says. “We’re looking forward to it.”
The other Maryland crab shacks are in Greenbelt, Gaithersburg and Abingdon.
Officials at Greenberg Gibbons Commercial Corp. – Hunt Valley’s developer – and Joe’s Crab Shack said they did not yet have a formal announcement on the new site.
The crab restaurant typically employs around 250 to 300 at each location. In addition to crabs, the restaurant sells New Orleans-style and Caribbean-flavored seafood dishes, such as crawfish etouffee and coconut shrimp.
Anchored by a Wegmans Food Markets, Hunt Valley Towne Centre’s shops include White House/Black Market, the Greene Turtle and California Pizza Kitchen.
