Great stone crab at a great price in Fort Lauderdale?

alanhotatl Jan 25, 2009 06:29 AM

I just moved to Fort Lauderdale and I am looking for a great place for excellent quality stone crab. Most places for some ridiculous reason are now charging BY THE OUNCE! I was charged $3 an ounce ($48 per pound!) at Trina recently and the claws were not even the claimed "jumbo" - they were about mediums. And another establishment wanted $3.50 an ounce! That is ridiculous. I mean I love places like Joe's and Monty's used to have all-you-could-eat, years ago, but what are the options now without dropping $100 and still being hungry? Any in Fort Lauderdale?

        I think the AYCE crab at Catfish Dewey's is Snow Crab and not Stones. I could be wrong but that's what I remember from my last visit. They also sell Stones but not AYCE.

          Alfred G - It's both although they run short of Stone Crab on some nights. The AYCE Stones are an every night item when available (http://www.catfishdeweys.com/blog.html). The Snow Crab AYCE is on Thursdays and Sundays (see the right side of the menu: http://www.catfishdeweys.com/menu.html

        I think Kelly's Landing has stone crab claw specials on Tues. and Wed. nights. You'd have to call to verify.

            Thanks. Not familiar with any of these places. I assume the $20 for jumbos means $20 a pound?

              yes and that would be for 2-3 claws per pound
              they make their own sauce and it's delicious
              recommend calling first, as they sell out quickly

              I went there today and had the pleasure of meeting Peter Jarvis President-

              it was tricky to find this place-
              no numbers or signs with places' name
              it is small bay #7 there r 2
              knock and walk in-someone will help you-right away
