    When I first walked in I smelled something strange. But after cracking those crabs and eating the fresh ears of corn I was on heaven! Had the crab feast of course!

    If you have a big group and need to order a couple dozen crabs, order a dozen first, so the next dozen will be nice and hot.

    Don't expect any airs at this old-fashioned crab house. Brown butcher's paper covers the tables, and crabs are the name of the game.

    Did 7.5 Crabs Before I called it quits. I suggest eating another cob of corn halfway through to give your hands a rest.
