New Crab Supplier Lately?

I love your Crab Bisque and would have happily given you 5 stars until the last 2 visits. Both times I found too many small shell pieces in the bisque. I expect 1 or 2, since this just proves that you're using "real" crab. But 11 in my last pint of soup was too many. Can you post on your... read more

I have been listening to people talk about this place, and have never stopped. I tried their crab bisque. It was a little saltier than I like, but was very good. The staff is very friendly, and attentive.

Nice friendly sandwich shop with a good selection. Your choice, you can not go wrong.. They have the FIVE (5) STAR rating just for the CRAB BISQUE. It is the best. Let me say that again. IT IS THE BEST. Call ahead as Thursday & Friday are generally the bisque days. Buy a big container and enjoy it more then... More

Friendly staff, Old school way of doing stuff at Nutter's. Gotta love it. Try the Avocado Powerhouse..it was really tasty and pretty healthy. My usual is the Chicken Salad Club which is always good. I would say the best or one of the best places to get a sandwich in the Newark area...My goto spot....

Every time we come to visit family we drive by Nutters. I've heard the place was good but never tried. Their sign said they had crab cakes so I decided to stop. So glad we did. Crab cakes were awesome, no filler and great taste. Also had their crab bisque...amazing. On the recommendation of the guy in front of us... More

My family and I love Nutter's toasted subs and crab bisque, but have been annoyed to find the place closed during the posted business hours on occasion.

$5 gets you the small crab bisque to go. This is the quintessential experience. One of the best small eateries around!

Really nice people get your sandwich ready for you, and sandwiches and other food they make is always reliably really good. This is a great place.
