Thanks in Advance

    They were excellent but a bit pricey at $10! but it was a nice fat crab. Undressed except for two pickle slices--but with a table of condiments to choose from. ALL prices of food seemed pretty high this year...

        I don't think there is tomato and lettuce, but i could be wrong. Mayo, hot sauce, ketchup, lemon, etc. But I didn't notice lettuce or tomato when dressing my catfish po-boy (same vendor).

        I didn't notice that the food was any more expensive than last year. Prices are a bit high, but not surprisingly so. Though I skipped the softshell this year in favor of getting two things in its place.
