The former Show Me’s restaurant at 3101 S. MacArthur Blvd. is now displaying signage for Ocean Crab House, which a recently created Facebook page describes as “Cajun seafood and bar.”
According to Sangamon County tax records, the property was sold on Dec. 2 for $700,000 to Ocean Crab House, Inc. That LLC is registered with the Illinois Secretary of State and lists Jinming Wu as the registered agent. Wu also owns Hibachi Grill Supreme Buffett, located in the nearby Town & Country Shopping Center on MacArthur.
Wu has a building permit on file with the City of Springfield for renovations to the former Show Me’s property and the exterior has recently been repainted.
The last post on the Ocean Crab House Facebook page on March 27 indicates plans to be open within the coming week, but attempts to contact the owner for more details were unsuccessful.
