With the sleazy ads, I almost gave Victoria's a pass. But I reminded myself that I ever really cared for the crabcake factory folks (I've long since forgotten why) and gave Victoria's a go. Glad I did.

First had a simple shrimp salad sandwich for lunch one day. Simple, nothing fancy but fresh and loaded with shrimp. A half pound of shrimp salad on a bun-- hard not to like.

Happy with that we got a half bushel of steamed crabs (mediums, $99). They were all done well. No clunkers in the batch. Lots of meat and well seasoned. As good as, if not better than, any other provide we've used in previous years.

And a short walk from our condo ... Hard to beat.
