Have gotten crabs here for a number of years. This year the crabs have been terrific. Big and full and they are spiced just right. Call early to order. Very friendly and helpful people to deal with.

We avoid the big crab houses and chains in favor of Best Crab for our crab cakes. On our last trip to OC, we went to Best Crab 3x. Once I had a crab cake- excellent. On the 2nd trip, I had the shrimp salad....More
