Boiling Crab Recipe?

So, I went to the Boiling Crab in Alhambra the other night and waited 2 hours for a table! 2 hours! Never again. But I still loved the food. Can anyone tell me what goes into one of those "whole shebang" deals? I'm guessing a stick of butter per pound of shrimp with old bay seasoning and some limes and a mess of garlic. Not being from the South, I'm at a loss as to what else should go in there. Can anyone give me a good approximate recipe for, say, 2 lbs of shrimp? Thanks!

      No, BUT I discovered their take-out. It's great--we don't get nickeled and dimed (25 cents for water?!) and we can get downright nasty with those buggers in the comfort of our own home!
