If you’re a fan of all-you-can-eat seafood, or just massive seafood consumption experiences in general, you’re wanna get in on this legit crayfish buffet.

On September 15th, IKEA is bringing their annual seafood smorgasbord back to celebrate the end of summer. Their feast will feature a variety of items to accompany the tasty crustacean, including the chain’s famous Swedish meatballs. Other highlights of the crayfish buffet include mac and cheese, Gravlax, pasta, and potato salads, and more.

If all of those delicacies have you licking your chops, make sure to go buy your tickets early. IKEA locations that are offering up the crayfish experience have already begun selling early bird tickets, and the event tends to fill up fast. Since you’re probably wondering which stores will have the crayfish buffet, we’ve begun to compile a list.

So far, we’ve been able to independently confirm that the following U.S. IKEAs will host a crayfish buffet:

Tempe, Arizona

Costa Mesa, California

New Haven, Connecticut

Schaumburg, Illinois

St. Louis, Missouri

Brooklyn, New York

Long Island, New York

Columbus, Ohio

West Chester, Ohio

Portland, Oregon

Round Rock, Texas

It’s possible that more locations will join as we get closer to the date, so as this list changes, we will keep you posted. Alternatively, you can also check your local store’s website for potential updates.

For now, if you do live nearby one of those IKEA stores and want in on the crayfish buffet, I’d recommend buying tickets now.
