My husband and I traveled to Ripley, WV to view a log home company. We stopped at Crabby Patti's for lunch. This restaurant specializes in crab flown in from Baltimore, MD. The restaurant has a nice rustic interior. We ordered the Crab cake sandwiches ($13, a little pricey) which included a pickle and a bag of potato chips. The crab cakes, in our opinion, didn't have a lot of flavor, but I make them at home and add more ingredients. I took a bite out of mine, and almost broke my tooth. There was something black mixed in with the crab and it broke into 4 small pieces. I did tell our waitress whom was very nice. She told the kitchen staff, and he did come out. He claimed it may be a hard piece of something burnt from the Panini grill. I'm not sure what that meant, but no matter what, I didn't feel anything should be in my sandwich from a Panini grill. I ended up breaking the sandwich apart in order to be sure there wasn't anymore in there. All in all, I didn't enjoy the sandwich, and the staff did not offer even a small token to make it right. I didn't expect them to take it off my bill, as I did eat just the crab meat, but any small jester would have made me feel like they cared.
