Where to buy a 1/2 bushel of crabs near LBI?
Where can I buy a 1/2 bushel of crabs near LBI? There is nothing like cracking your own crabs picnic style in your backyard down the shore.
Did you try Mud City? Its just over the bridge in manahawkin. In addition to the restaurant there is a market.

I live near LBI and I make a trip to Skipper's for seafood (it is approx. 25 minute ride from LBI area). The address is: 647 Route 72, Barnegat, NJ 08005-1058
The crabs can be bought live or cooked and the prices are MUCH better than anywhere in/around LBI! A 1/2 bushel cost us about $34 and the crabs were a very good size - we called ahead and reserved them. They have a great variety of seafood (last time I was there they had live crawfish!). Mud City is great too if you don't want to take the road trip to Skippers.
