    It is a bit far from downtowns and beaches. But, don't let this deter you! The food is great, and they have waterfront seating. If you craving some seafood, you will be pleasantly surprised here.

    The Rustic Inn is a Fort Lauderdale landmark: After 55 years in business, the cavernous restaurant is still packed daily with folks looking to release their aggression on the backs of blue crabs.

    Go crab crazy: get the sampler plate -- big enough for 2 people -- and a crab salad sandwich. Sit outdoors overlooking the canal. And definitely wear a bib.

    What a fun place to eat! We shared a crab sampler and worked very hard and enjoyed every moment. We also shared a bottle of their house wine, woodbridge cabernet. Key lime pie was great, too

    Stone Claw Crab, Dungenous Crabs, Alaskan King are all amazing. Raw Oysters are huge and fresh (...served properly with horseradish and cocktail sauce). Great seafood, Have fun with the mallets ;)

    Got the Admiral platter, it was heavenly. Steak was cooked just right, not fatty and the Alaskan King Crab was perfect and plentiful. Great place to have a fun friend or family meal!
  • Gia G.
    OMG... The lunch combo platter is amazing. For $15.99 you get two types of crab, crab cake, fries, cole slaw, and grilled veggies. Stuffed but so worth it! Mmm garlic

    Appetizer: Fisherman's Platter. Soup: Conch Chowder. Entree: lobster Fra Diavolo, but only if you're sharing it or you can take home the leftovers, because you WILL have them. Excellent.

    Florida crab claws are in season Oct-May and delicious. Fun fact: when a crab claw is harvested the crab lives on! Goodbye to righty one year then lefty the next. Painful but sustainable!

    Better seafood at Long John's. Crab was frozen too long, then cooked too long. The place is a dump, and not in a cool "rustic" way. Also, if you're not into crowd participation avoid this place.

    В выходные дни живая очередь и не маленькая. Отлично приготовленные крабы, устрицы и д. р. (лучший, на мой вкус с Аляски и без приправ). А еще Вам дадут молоточек и..!! В среднем на человека 80-120$
