Charleston Crab House

Charleston Crab House


Thanks to Team Crabby for coming out and learning to curl last night with the Charleston Curling Club!
SloanLED worked with St. Clair Signs to replace two old neon signs with #FlexiBRITE flexible LED tubing for the Charleston Crab House in Charleston, SC, delivering a sustainable, reliable, and efficient alternative to exposed neon. Read the case study:
We're there earlier today and my friend clearly had a good time, and great crab legs.

What a beautiful day on the dock. I was in shorts AND short sleeves in December! You can’t be mad at that. Our new friends were from Michigan and they were AWESOME! Pancakes were flying and some blues showed up for them. These 2 took their catch to the Charleston Crab House on James Island and had them cook up their hard work. We are thrilled that our guests are able to have this service now: Swing by and tell em I sent you. That red rice, though. The temps are on the rise for this week so y’all better come on. We can’t wait to see who’s next. 👊🏾❤️🦀 Art Tia

Shuck Yeah! Oyster Roast at Charleston Crab House was lots of fun! And it was a plus that our team won too
A few days ago I had the pleasure of sharing some dock time with one of my oldest and dearest friends, LaChelle. We go WAY back. She messaged me before they were coming and asked about coming crabbing and what they would do with their catch. Well, I’m not sure if folks know this but the fine folks over at the Charleston Crab House will cook your catch for you. The last pic is them enjoying what they caught on the patio at the James Island location. I LOVE that our guests that aren’t staying in an Airbnb still have an option to enjoy what they catch. We are over the moon about having an awesome place to send them now and I’m very excited about working with the crab house in the future. 👊🏾❤️🦀LaChelle Tia

Do you still offer the deep fried lobster? Was always a favorite of mine from years gone by
Yesterday canons were fired, and Big Red was raised over Castle Pinckney to honor all of The Citadel’s fallen soldiers. It happened to be on Veteran’s Day this year, and as a special surprise, a rainbow formed over the island right after Big Red started flying…
Thank you Charleston Crab House for sponsoring this special event and for the fabulous food!
This will be our view from the boat tomorrow on The Big Red Flag Raising Cruise to Castle Pinckney! Thanks Charleston Crab House for sponsoring this fun annual event
Beautiful day for a Stray Dog tailgate!

And here's the final product from yesterday! We revamped this Charleston Crab House sign to include flexible LEDs as well as a sandblast, prime, and paint of the cabinet.
