Description: The original Rustic Inn Fort Lauderdale crabhouse began as a roadhouse saloon. As time went by, our hole-in-the-wall Ft Lauderdale crabhouse grew up, keeping with the demand for steamed crabs, seafood, linguini with homemade sauces and other popular dishes. Our World Famous Garlic Crabs are known the world over. We invite you and your family to see what the legend is all about. Enjoy waterfront dining on our dock or in our main dining room. Visit our cocktail lounge and enjoy one of our original frozen drinks.

The food was great, not only the crab legs but also the steak. This down to earth place encourages you to eat at your own pace and get your hands dirty.

Rustic. That's what this place is, so if you are looking for fine dining, this won't fit the bill. But if you're looking for delicious seafood served up on a very casual environment, you'll be glad you dined here. I ordered the Grouper, taking the waitress' recommendation to have it grilled with lemon butter. It was fantastic, and served with generous portions of potatoes, mixed vegetables, and cole slaw. The restaurant also offers outdoor seating adjacent to a canal, but on a balmy evening, you can expect to wait for one of these outdoor tables. Overall, I loved this place and highly recommend it.

This place was recommended to us by the staff at the hotel. I was staying her prior to our cruise and did not have a rental car. The hotel has a shuttle that runs in the evening hours but we arrived at approx. 1030 am . So we walked approx. 5 mints to this place. The food is awsome and the serving size is huge. Make sure you are hungary and the walk back to the hotel was much needed.
