Seafood boils in the DC area?

My guy and I just returned from Cantlers in Annapolis, where we had an amazing seafood boil (hardshell crabs, corn on the cob, shrimp, clams, mussels, and king crab legs in Old Bay-seasoned water). It was delicious, and it was the closest thing to a low country boil that I have found in the DC/MD area. I realize that Cantlers is a local legend in Annapolis and it's right by the water so its seafood is amazing and fresh. We also liked its low-key, no frils atmosphere.

We are looking for any local places in the DC area offering these types of seafood boils. Any recs would be appreciated. Thanks!
