Crabs for labor day lunch/dinner =)

A bunch of us are planning lunch or dinner with steamed blue crabs and were looking to stay within 1 hr or less of NOVA/DC area for a yummy crabhouse.

Nothing fancy, looking for just super delicious crabs at the best price possible.

We have heard decent reviews about

-Quarterdeck
-Dancing Crab
-Ernie's Crab House
-Tim's in Dumfries (but its a tad far)

Btw-just wondering, do crabhouses in the DC/VA/MD area only carry blue crabs? I know in Florida the crabhouse down there had stone crabs, golden crabs, alaskan king crabs, etc...

Thanks!!!
