best crab house (within 2.5 hours of philly)
want to go to a place where we can get a some steamed blue crabs, beer, cole slaw etc, preferably on the water. any suggestions -
so far in the lead is waterman's with the crab claw also in the running.
i've never been to the area before or eaten crabs in this way so any suggestions would be great.
Hands down - Oyster Creek Inn in Leeds Point (right by Smithville). Eat in the screened-in porch (Bill's Crab Room) - great crabs and lobsters, cold beer, right on the bay.
You will find none better than Sambo's in Liepsic, DE. Maybe a bit less than 2.5 hr's from Phladelphia. They are seasonal, April - Oct., near Dover, well off the "beaten path." Very busy on weekends.
Thanks for all of those suggestions and I will try all of the NJ places this summer - however for tomorrow we are meeting some friends who live in DC so were hoping for a place that was sort of equidistant from DC and Philly - so Sambo's might work, but we were thinking somewhere in Maryland. I should have specified!
