Crabs in College Park in April?

Is there a good seafood restaurant in Prince George's County MD where we could get fresh crabs in April 2011? Soft shells crabs, steamed crabs, good quality crab cakes? Am visiting from Albuquerque and want to sample the famous Maryland crabs!

      Local crabs exist but are not yet easily available, but if you drive closer to the bay around Annapolis or near Baltimore there are great crab places. The area around College Park is not crab HQ. The tourist answer is Jerry's Seafood, but you can do better north and east.

    2. Ruff and Ready in Hyattsville/Chillum would be the closest.
