Steamed blue crabs

Anyone know of a restaurant that serves blue crab (not snow crab legs, alaskan king crab, etc.)? Looking for some great steamed crabs. Thanks!

Not aware of any on Amelia Island. The Blue Crab Crabhouse always gets great reviews for their steamed blue crabs, but they are located on the far side of Jacksonville so it would be a far stretch. There is a place near I-95 and I-295 that sells live blue crabs so you can do your own. Sometimes the little seafood market on A1A in Yulee has blue crabs for sale.

There is a place on A1A about 2-3 miles before you cross the bridge into Amelia Island. We have gotten blue crabs there, but they do sell a lot of females. We are from Maryland, where that is not allowed, but the males we steamed ourselves Maryland style. They were small but very full and tasty. We only took the males...we are brainwashed. We visit Fernandina Beach every fall for a month and always get some blue crabs to steam. Good luck!
