I've been going here for garlic crabs for over 25 years. Dress in an old shirt, order a pitcher of beer and enjoy! Dip the bread in the huge chunks of garlic sauce! YUM!! Not a quiet dinner with all the mallets banging, but you will not be sorry you came.

My wife and I stopped in here after reading generally positive reviews. I ordered the crab sampler, and my wife got the queen crab legs (i.e., large snow crab). Each crab entree reportedly comes with two lbs of crab for $48 (prices vary daily). My plate come with a mixture of garlic blue crab, garlic dungeness crab, and queen crab... More

I think this is thru third tome we've eaten here. We had an all Shrimp dinner with Conch Fritters as a appetizer. They are really good. But the Shrimp is amazing. Peel and eat Shrimp and Fried Shrimp. The fried Shrimp is the best I've ever had and I eat a lot of fried Shrimp. Server was excellent too.

Well it's been, ouch, 21 years of going here. Can't say its as enjoyable as it was, maybe my age or just the popularity over took the dedication. Still get great service but mixed with very poor service, it's hit or miss. The meals are hit or miss as well. The ribs can be tender and meaty one night, then... More

Its a nice place with nice staff and awesome food. Its not only about the taste, which was great, its also about the fun while eating the crabs.

We came in the night before our cruise on the Allure of the Seas and the hotel suggested this gem for seafood. Very laid back and excellent crab legs! Good portions and has some seats on the water. Will definitely return!

This was our fifth visit to the Rustic Inn but my first review. Each meal has been great fun with excellent food and worth the lingering tinnitus from the non-stop birthday announcement mallet banging (you'll get it if you go). The portions are not for the dainty eaters out there. Come prepared to be overwhelmed by the size of the... More

I have been dining at Rustic Inn Crab house for more then ten years. I have never ever ever had a disappointing meal. From the pasta, to the burgers, to the ribs, to the tuna steak, to the shrimp, to the mussels and finally the fried calamari! Everything is perfect! Always packed. Great atmosphere with a great rustic feeling! An... More
