Softshell crabs in restaurants Greensboro/Winston Salem

Love softshells and will be in Greensboro/Winston Salem area in a few weeks. Any restaurant suggestions where I might have the best chance of finding softshells would be appreciated.

  1. I heard they had some at Saxapahaw Grocery. Their season is pretty short, so I don't know if you'll get local ones much longer.

    1. I have seen them on th menu at several places. in Winston they have showed up at Spring House, Jeffrey adams and one or two other places. Unfortunately for me most preparations have been tpura style and I prefer them pan fried. check the twitter feeds of any places you plan to visit for up to the minute details.

      1. Table 16 had them in April. Not sure whether they are on the menu now.

        1. I had some excellent grilled softshells last weekend at Diamondback Grill in W-S.
