..maybe it's not hidden, but it took me a couple of years to get here and I'm so glad I finally did. Great happy hour deals at the outside bar (with an amazing sunset view on the bay, sand, and palm trees - very relaxing)..Food and drinks were all fresh and flavorful. Can't wait to visit again.

Blu crab house was amazing and great value for money! A group of us went with friends who thought us who to pick pick crabs properly because we'd never done it before! The sides are all amazing too, especially the Mac and cheese bites! Great all you can eat as its not a buffet style situation, the servers bring you more fresh food as you need it!
Highly recommended

The all you can eat crabs here are all number ones and they are bigger and less expensive at $26 bucks each then any of the numerous other places we have been in Ocean City in the 26 years I have lived here. We are regulars here. Other great tries are the tuna tower app with a wasabi creme fraise, crab melt sandwich which comes with bacon and lemon zest aioli and Tuna steak.

Ate at Blu Crabhouse and Raw Bar for the first time last week while visiting Ocean City. Very impressed with the atmosphere, service and especially the food! We both had seafood pasta which was outstanding. Lots of shrimp, scallops and crabmeat. Finding the entrance is a little tricky. The restaurant is actually above The Embers Restaurant on 24th & Philadelphia.

We were down to Ocean City, Maryland for Bike Week. We generally only grab burgers and pizza during the week. Well we saw this new Seafood Restaurant while riding down the strip and decided to try it. It is right on the water which was a very nice start. We both got the Maryland Crab Soup, my first time and it was delicious. Then our entrees were fantastic. The portions were perfect. We are definitely looking forward to going back there next year when we head South again.
