Shaking crab

This eatery has been on our list for a while. We were aware it was part of a chain and earlier reviews were not stellar. It was only recently that we noticed the sign advertising Pho outside the restaurant. A bit of investigation revealed that...new owners took over less than a year ago and they added a Vietnamese section to the existing Shaking Crab menu. We also noticed that recent reviews were much improved. So, here we are, dining in on a recent Wednesday night. We were primarily interested in the Viet offerings, which are among our favorites. The Shaking Crab is bright and clean inside, has a good vibe and the staff is welcoming. We started with the shrimp papaya salad and the spring rolls. Good salad, really awesome spring rolls and peanut sauce!! Not the biggest spring rolls we've had but definitely the tastiest. Liked them so much we doubled down on them. Next up, we each ordered the beef Pho soup. There is definitely room in the Estero/Bonita/Naples eating scene for more good Pho places. The Pho here is really good. The broth is heavenly- which is obviously the most important part. Plenty of beef and noodles in the bowl as well. Mirasol was our server and she was perfect throughout the meal. Many other diners were sampling the seafood boil type dinners (the original Shaking Crab menu stuff) and enjoying them. We will return, for us it's all about the Vietnamese offerings!!More
