Congratulations to the Crab Claw in St. Michaels! In Travel and Leisure Magazine’s “America’s Best Waterfront Seafood Shacks”

I opened up the July 2011 issue of Travel and Leisure, saw an article about American’s Best Waterfront Seafood Shacks, and found that our very own Crab Claw Restaurant in St. Michaels was among the main features! Woo-hoo!

Check it out:

Hardly a “shack”, the Crab Claw has been around for decades and is always my first place to take out-of-town guests, after trucking around the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum – we do both at once. My favorite thing about the Crab Claw in St. Michaels is the location. Smack in the middle of the town harbor, and nestled within the same acreage as the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, this place has great waterfront views and feels like a vacation hangout. Sporting red and white checked tablecloths, old wood paneling, large breezy screens and ceiling fans, it’s casual and comfortable, and always a great place for a drink and some crabs. Their crabcakes are fine as well as the crab fluff. Yes. Fried fluff. Who doesn’t like fried crab fluff?

Here’s a view from the boat last week, and below that – the last crabcake I had there, back in July. Yum. And their truck with that crazy logo – love it!

  1. Good for them! They deserve it … love that place.

  2. One of my very favorites! A hangout for hubs & I when we were still dating. We’d drive all the way from DC, or go after a weekend of sailboat racing. Definitely one of the reasons I married him – he knew all the cool places!

    One thing I would like to publicly say, however, to all owners of 70 foot yachts: while it may seem “cool”, “baller”, “pimp”, “playa” or “gangsta” to you, pulling up & parking directly in front of the deck @ Crab Claw, blocking any view or breeze for all patrons of this fine establishment for their entire afternoon of cracking crabs is most definitely a faux pas. Despite what you may think, we are not pointing & whispering in admiration of your craft. On the contrary, we are discussing what kind of loser actually thinks it is okay to do this.
