Everyone knows that crab cakes are what Maryland, The Old-Line State, does best. More accurately, seafood, in general, from shellfish like oysters and crabs to the tender and delicious Rockfish straight from the Chesapeake Bay, is what Maryland’s culinary scene is known for. Even though it is not the season for Maryland Blue Crabs, The Crab Shack has a mouthwatering selection of seafood available year-round to satisfy all of your cravings for the delicacies of the sea.
With two convenient locations just outside Annapolis, The Crab Shack is easily accessible and available to satisfy all of your dine-in and take-out desires. A little northwest of Annapolis, on Route 3, is where the Crofton Crab Shack is located, while just a little southwest of the city you’ll find the Edgewater Crab Shack in the heart of the quaint little town on Solomons Island Road. New to town in 2021, The Crab Shack is ready to be your new favorite hideout for a quick bite from the Raw Bar or a wonderful family dinner.
While we all wait for warmer weather and Blue Crab season, The Crab Shack offers a lovely Raw Bar that features fresh local oysters on the half shell, chilled and cracked Blue Crab claws, both served with spicy cocktail sauce. The steamed shrimp are a must-try and an excellent crash course in Baltimore Style Steamed Shrimp. The shrimp are steamed in Natty Boh, Old Bay, and a heaping helping of freshly sliced onions. The Baltimore way of steaming shrimp compliments the natural savoriness of the shrimp, with a flavor profile that is practically bursting through the shell.
After the appetizers have primed your appetite, it’s time for the main course. The Crab Shack offers fresh Snow Crab Legs, Crawfish, and Alaskan King Crab Leg dinners available by the half-pound or the pound. If you are not in the mood to make a mess cracking shells, the famous Crab Shack Broiled Crab Cakes are available by themselves or as a sandwich, in either a five-ounce or half-pound portion, and they are guaranteed to have you coming back for more.
The Crab Shack is easy to find, with a comfortable and laid-back dining experience, wonderful service, amazing food, and a staff that is ready to meet and exceed all of your expectations. For more information, please visit www.thecrabshackmd.com
