Does anyone know of any restaurants that do an all you can eat crab legs special in the Clinton to New Brunswick area? My family used to go to H. I Rib in Pennington for this special, but we just learned that they closed down, while attempting to make a reservation for tonight...

      posted this on the HI Ribs thread, didn't realize you're farther North. Still worth the drive or if you're in the Burlington, NJ area another time:

      Blue Claw Crab Eatery in Burlington on 130 North has all you can eat crab legs. Call ahead for tables (waitlist gets you ahead of walkins) as the place isn't huge. Also it's BYOB. Best crab on this side of NJ!

        yeah thats a bit far for us, plus I don't do seafood, so I need somewhere that has something else on the menu, but thanks anyways...

        If they give you " all you can eat" crab legs, you can bet your bippy that the quality is mediocre to low, and most assuredly frozen product...

        Better to wait a couple weeks, the Maryland Blue Crab season is almost upon us. Fabulous sweet taste, nothing like it.

          Snow crab and king crab are by definition frozen. The only location where they are available "fresh" is on the boats from which they were caught. Reservations are hard to get and you have to work for the food...

          The only place I've had AYCE crabs that were actually worth eating in NJ was at Minado. Not quite close to New Brunswick though...

            During the spring/summer, Bahrs Landing (Highlands, NJ) has 'all you can eat' snow crab legs on Friday nights.
