About

They've re-created that tradition here with tables covered in brown paper and mallets for cracking the shells of the house specialty, steamed crabs. They're offered in any quantity you like, from a single crab to the $24.95 all you can eat Crab Feast. The brothers are also proud of their Maryland style crab cakes, which John Jenkins says are "all jumbo lump, with just enough cracker to hold them together." Other options include peel and eat shrimp, oysters and clams on the half shell and Southern fried seafood platters. There's a modest wine selection and beers are -- true to crab shack tradition -- available by the bottle only.
