    I think most would rather buy local, that's the nice thing about OC.....but when the bay isn't giving up the goods...and the customers are coming through the front door...you'll buy blue crabs from anyone who has them....this year especially has been real tough on the waterman...many stopped crabbing in July and august....and the prices have been outrageous...

    NACL, great info.
    Not sure, but I believe the local crab season ends about now, so there are no local crabs in Nov.-April?

    After some more checking here is what we found out. . If you see crabs in any Maryland restaurant that are under the legal size while Maryland’s season is open, you should call the NRP catch a poacher line. Their number is 1-800-635-6124, and NRP should check it out. While the Maryland season is closed, undersized crabs can be sold, but the restaurant must have the bill of lading indicating the state where the crabs were harvested.

    I've been getting the AYCE steamed crabs at Crab Alley for the last seven years or so, and I've never walked away disappointed. I've also had the crabs at Captains Galley, and they're also quite good.

    "Bloopers" is a total tourist trap.
