Downhill alert: Cajun Crab House, San Jose

Don't eat here. I've posted before about loving this place; unfortunately, it has been sold to a new owner and is now just plain horrible. I wondered what was going on when we saw that Chinese and Vietnamese items had been added to the menu. We ordered anyway, and the food was awful - the boil broth was greasy and tasteless, the shrimp was tired and badly in need of deveining (not the nice fresh peel-and-eat from prior visits), there were bits of bone in the collards, and the hush puppies tasted like old grease. We asked the server and she said the place had been sold to a friend of the previous owner but the cooks were the same - could have fooled me. Ew.
