Anyone know of a neighborhood bar or tap room that serves BIG crabs? I know there are places in town that have a weekly all you can eat night.I went to one in the northeast and needed a magnifying glass to see the little buggers. I don't want to go to Di Nardo's. If you suggest a place, please report on your personal experience,the size, deliciousness and quality, good or bad of the crabs.
i'd like to know too....though I posted on the mid-atlantic board about a place called Grabbe's over the bridge in Westville NJ. no feedback but i hear they are famous for their crabs.
I've been wondering about Callahan's on South Street (at around 27th). It's a dive bar but some friends say the food is surprisingly good. They've got a sign about a crab night on Wednesdays I think.
Hate to say it, ya'll... but I am serious crab lover (and a Chesapeake native) and I seriously think truly great crabs just don't exist in Philly.
That said, fortunately we are within a close drive of the Maryland border. Some of my favorites are the Wellwood in Charlestown and Dead Eye Dicks in Kent Narrows, but I am sure the MD Board would have some more convenient suggestions.
