I totally get it. Who wants to be boiled alive? This crab in New York picked up a knife in a last-ditch attempt to avoid a painful, yet delicious fate. Known as the Adorable Chef on TikTok, Chef Adora Penn posted the video, which has now gone viral. In it, you can see the crab with a pretty substantial-sized knife in its clutches as she picks it up with tongs. Unfortunately, the crab drops the knife before heading into a huge pot of boiling water.

Check out the video this TikToker posted.

Before you boil your next crab or lobster live, you should know that they do feel pain. According to Live Science,

Yes, researchers now say. Not only do crabs suffer pain, a new study found, but they retain a memory of it (assuming they aren't already dead on your dinner plate). The scientists say its time for new laws to consider the suffering of all crustaceans.

I ordered the seafood boil with snow crab legs and shrimp, in the cajun spice. The food arrived quickly and was nice and hot. The seafood, potatoes, sausage and corn were well seasoned with just the right amount of heat. The portions were ample and I left full and satisfied. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. This was my first visit and I will definitely be returning very soon!

Service was great and food was very good! Lobster tails and crab legs in old bay with butter was perfect choice! The corn and potatoes were done perfect! Average price expected for seafood :) Def. Our new go to seafood spot! Dine before 4pm to get cheaper prices!!

Great experience from the food to the service. The flavoring is the best I've had in a boil since my granny's. Tons of good food worth the price imo.

Enjoyed the "handful experience" food option with shrimp, crawfish, etc . Good flavor (medium spice cajun). Really enjoyed shrimp, sausage & mussels. Crab cakes were flat and only okay. Fun date place. Music was a little loud. Restaurant accessible. Would recommend for families with older children or teens. Food came out quickly. Friendly staff. No changing station. Menu does have chicken strips basket but did not see kids menu. Definitely going back to try some other menu items. Really good jumbo shrimp. Worth a try.

4. Bailey Seafood - 4.1 Stars
3316 Bailey Ave, Buffalo, NY 14215

If crawfish are your jam, you can get a pound for $12.99. You can also choose between a crab, shrimp, and salmon platter or a crab, shrimp, and sausage combo.

Jon Battison, a Google Local Guide who left a 5-star review said,

Bailey seafood is a neighborhood staple, and for good reason. They focus on seafood and do it very well. I've never got a disappointing meal from them and I've tried a lot on there always expanding menu. If you like seafood, you really should give this place a try. By the way, it's take out only.
