Fresh Live Dungeness Crab available for March Crab Madness special

Spring is certainly in the air with Easter just around the corner and the 2018 NCAA March Madness men’s basketball tournament in full effect.

As an establishment known to help its customers honor every celebration from holidays to birthdays and more, don’t think Pagoda Floating Restaurant has overlooked this notable occasion.

The eatery is amping up the springtime hype with a special of its own. Join Pagoda for its March Crab Madness that includes a Fresh Live Dungeness Crab for only $15.95 with purchase of two lunch or dinner buffets, both of which are offered daily.

General manager John Teruya explains that Pagoda’s crab has flavors to satisfy any craving.

Steamed Alaskan Snow Crab available for buffet

“We prepare our crab four different ways,” he says. “Garlic butter, spicy garlic butter, miso, or our specialty Crustacean Preparation of spicy garlic butter with crab miso.”

No matter the preparation, each option is served with your choice of garlic noodles or steamed with lemon and butter.

If you are not in the mood for Dungeness crab, diners may opt for Steamed Alaskan Snow Crab legs, which is served as part of the restaurant’s Lunch Buffet ($33.95 adult, $13.95 children ages 5-8; or without crab legs option for $18.95 adults, $7.95 children ages 5-8); Sunday Brunch ($38.95 adults, $17.95 children ages 5-8); and Dinner Buffet ($35.95 adults, $15.95 children ages 5-8; and on weekends $40.95 adults, $17.95 children ages 5-8; weekday dinner buffet without crab leg option $20.95 adults, $8.95 children ages 5-8).

Speaking of Easter and buffets, be sure to join Pagoda for its exclusive Easter Brunch (9 a.m.-2 p.m.) and Dinner (5-9:30 p.m.) buffets that are $58.95 for adults and $25.95 for children ages 5-8.

Teruya advises to book your spot now, since reservations are filling up fast. The special holiday buffet will feature favorites such as Molokai Style Steamed Hamachi, Kiawe Smoked Beef Brisket, plus Marshmallow Peeps Chocolate Fondue.
