Stone Crabs/Crabby Bills/Palm Harbor

We were driving up Hwy 19 in Palm Harbor on Saturday and saw that Crabby Bills was advertising "stone crabs are here!". Not ever having this type of crab (I'm a Maryland girl), my husband convinced me that these were worth trying. We each had the large/jumbo platter which had a pound of claws + 2 sides for $24.95. The medium platter was $17.95. I am glad we splurged the $7 for the larger ones -- they were huge! Each one (there were 3 on the platter) was about 8" long when laid flat. The meat was a wonderful sweetness with an almost lobster-like flavor and texture. We were both stuffed and felt that the money was well spent. I can't wait to go back again!
