Rumor has it Louisiana State University Head Coach Ed Orgeron convinced former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow to come play for his team using one of the Bayou State’s finest foods: a massive bucket of boiled crawfish.
And while (I hate to break it to you) not many of us will have the chance to play division 1 football in the NCAA, one thing we will be able to do soon is dig into a massive amount of Louisiana-style crawfish.
In roughly a month, the (state of) Delaware-based Two Claws will be coming to Westerville, opening its doors at 599 S. State St.

Billed as a seafood-forward Cajun restaurant, Two Claws will be tapping into a niche in the Columbus food scene that we’ve experienced very little of until now.
“What we do at Two Claws is a style of eating that’s really popular in New Orleans, in Louisiana; it’s called a boil-in-bag. You add a bunch of different proteins—mussels, crawfish, crab—into a bag with corn and potatoes and whatever kind of Cajun seasoning you like,” said Josh Ogg, a digital marketing strategist representing Two Claws. “It’s known to get a little bit messy, but it’s definitely worth it.”
According to Ogg, Two Claws has a focus on seafood, especially their crab. Customers can order up everything from Dungeness crab, to snow crab, to the venerable king crab. With crawfish, shrimp, lobster, mussels (green and black), and clams, the eatery provides an entire ocean of options for diners.
Don’t worry, there’s also a handful of delicious non-seafood options as well. Iconic Cajun sausage is available for boil-in-bag proteins, and Two Claws also serves up wings, chicken tenders, Cajun fries, onion rings, hushpuppies, and more.
And if you’re the type of person who really knows what they want, opt for the fun and interactive build your own boil-in-bag.
“It’s great; you’re able to pick from more than 10 different Cajun proteins, and then you pick the seasonings you want [including Cajun, garlic butter, lemon pepper, Old Bay, and an original Two Claws blend], whatever vegetables you want, and even the level of spice,” Ogg said.
Two Claws also offers four different premade combo bags customers can choose from, offering different combinations of delicious Cajun fare.
Even if you don’t want to take on an entire bag, the new Cajun eatery has you covered. Customers can order a la carte entrees from a list that includes fried catfish, fried tilapia, shrimp, crab, and much more.
