ayce crabs (crab legs, blue crabs, etc)

I have been in search of a good AYCE crab place that does it right. I live in Delco and have visited a couple places (Casey's, Barnaby's, the old West End in Media to name a few) but they all seem to not get it right. The Boulevard in Havertown isn't bad with their dungeoness crabs. I had an excellent experience down the shore but I can't remember the name of the place. It was right outside of Atlantic City and they were not a buffet, but had AYCE everything for 45-50 bucks i believe. Their big thing was dungeoness crabs in a little net bag.

Can anyone give me a good place to eat crabs in the delco area (and outside of Delco if its definitely worth driving to). I prefer whole crabs if possible, but if a place has superb crab legs night, i'd appreciate that too

  1. Philadadium in South Philly (down the street from Chickies and Pete's) has AYCE Crabs one night per week in the summer (about $20)...

    Kelly's Seafood in NE Philly (Welsh Road and Bustleton Ave) has AYCE Crab Legs (Snow or Dungeness).. not sure if it is every night or Thurs-Sun...

    There is a crab leg thread:

    1. Grabbes in westville NJ. It is only 6+/- from the walt whitman
