Shrimp crabs and more

When ever we are here we come here for FRESH shrimp, crabs and other seafood. They steam it and season it to your liking. Call ahead for fast pick up. They accept charge cards. Can you say delicious?!!!!!

Gary's Seafood has unbeatable prices for steamed crabs! I would very much suggest going here for your steamed crabs. Fast service, friendly staff.

The choice of fresh from the water sea food is great. Not only will the cook your choice for you, but I believe they deliver as well. We chose to buy ours fresh and cook at home.

Gary's has the best hard shell crabs. We ordered them to bring home with us. We took our coolers to them and they packed the crabs in ice for our 4+ hour trip home. They do not charge extra to pack them for you. Their prices are good. The crabs were nice sized and full of meat. There is no... More

We have always been able to find great quality seafood here. The crabs have been good quality and love that they will steam them in minutes. Early in the season I like when they sale crab claws from their peelers. Food has alway been fresh and love the fact they are one of the few that takes credit/debit cards.

Only had one jar of shucked oysters (had no idea when they would get more). This seems a little weird on an island know for their oysters, right before a major holiday weekend. Not unfriendly, just not very friendly.

great crabs and reasonable price. We ordered steamed crabs a week ago before we went there and it was ready on time.

This hidden gem sits just a couple of blocks off the beaten path, and is our favorite find of the week. Fresh local crabs, steamed and seasoned perfectly, at a more than reasonable price. We got a couple dozen males and were very happy with the quality and value. Being originally from Baltimore, we can get a bit picky about... More

I had a crab cake dinner. It was excellent and there was plenty of food. My husband had a shrimp dinner. His shrimp were a bit overcooked and tough, but we would give this place another try. My crab cake dinner was much less expensive here than in any of the restaurants in town.
