An Ol' Steamer's Favorite...
A Typical Crab House Menu
...includes related seafood items, cold beer, other beverages, fries and a burger or two...
Other than steamed crabs - of course - we also like good fresh made crab cakes (or crabcakes) and some steamed shrimp and some corn on the cob. We like the steamed shrimp with steamed onions all done in Old Bay (or similar) seasoning. All of this needs to be washed down by an ice cold beer or a fountain coke in a tall cup filled with ice.
Here are some "typical" menu items that seem popular in various crab house establishments.
|The Steamed Crabs, of course.
- Medium, Large, Extra Large and Jumbo
(or variations of these sizes)
- By the Dozen or 1/2 Dozen
(or possible individual sales)
- Steamed crabs are always "market priced." Please note that the prices can change without notice.
- Broiled or Fried
- Always get the broiled.
- Maryland Crab - tomato/vegetable based
- Cream of Crab
- Crab Bisque
- Lobster and/or Lobster Tails
- Steamed Shrimp - always ask if you can get these with onions
- Seafood Platter or Sampler
- Hand Breaded Calamari
- Snow/King Crab Legs
- Steamed Clams
- Steamed Mussels
- Fries - Straight Cut and/or Curly
- Corn on the cob
- Pizza - usually personal size and pre-made - crab houses are not pizzerias
- Hamburger and/or Cheeseburger
- Chicken Fingers
- Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Tuna Salad
- Iced Tea
- Draft Beer
- Bottled Beer
- Wine (at some crab houses)
- Mixed Drinks (at some crab houses)
Many of the seafood items - lobsteer, shrimp, crabs, scallops and even clams and mussels - are available for "mail order" home delivery. Places like Lobster Anywhere (www.LobsterAnywhere.com) or The Crab Place (www.CrabPlace.com) can have fresh, delicious seafood products delivered directly to your door.
For the non-seafood lover (who may be) in the group, there are usually an assortment of "other" foods. These usually include french fries and onion rings to go with the seafood. You will also find a hamburger or cheeseburger and maybe even a steak sub.
What else comes out of the crab steamers? All sorts of good eats - for one example - steamed shrimp...and more...of course...
