Can you eat in or just carry out?

Mainly carry out. I think they have one picnic table outside

How much are your large crabs by the dozen? 1/2 bushel

We paid $139 for a dozen extra large crabs, worth it.

Can you get crabs on Christmas day

Not here

Bought one dozen crabs, $59 med/lg. Seasoning was great, good taste. However, crabs were not hot, only warm, size was mostly med, and lackedfullness. I May try again.

These truly are the best crabs I've ever had. "Best Corn Bread" would also be an appropriate name. More people should go here.

Couldn't find better crabs if you tried. If you're trying to find decent crabs then you've found the Best Crabs, literally.

Just left here with a dozen medium steamed crabs.I'm not a crab connoisseur but these were smaller than my mediums from a competitor for the same price.The crabs were extremely watery inside and mushy.3 of my 12 crabs had 2 claws. 4 had 1 claw and the other 5 had zero claws attached. In the bottom of the bag I found 6 claws laying there giving me a total of 16 claws from 12 crabs missing 8 claws that's equivalent to 4 crabs with zero claws at all Just terrible business.

We have been eating steamed crabs all of our lives (my husband and myself), and these crabs are the best we have ever had! Not a one of them was wet or soggy. Every one of them had the perfect amount of spice! We found this gem this week, but they have been in business for the past 26 years! Other crab places we have visited over last 36 years of coming to O.C. are far from comparison! We are going back tonight for a second night of steamed crabs this week!

Went today craving crabs but decided that they wanted too much money for such small crabs. And I'm a crab person so I know what I should be getting for my money. That said, I opted for a crab cake with Maryland crab soup. It was delicious. I wish the portion of soup was a bit bigger but I was satisfied. Customer service was good and prompt and I'd definitely come back for a repeat.

My family and I have been going here the past 2 years after hearing good things and this place is simply fantastic. Staff and owner are always nice, prices are very fair imo, and they have everything you could think of for a great crab feast or OC dinner. Crabs and corn are perfectly seasoned and delicious. If you are looking for a good $$$ deal on crabs to take home to the beach house, look no further than this place.

The actual menu that you got when you went there for takeout was way different then the one that is posted on their website. Because of the covid a lot of stuff was extremely Limited

Came in town on August 4th... First stop was to this location for a half bushel of medium/large crabs...I called ahead when I was 20 minutes away... I was a little early, with at least two minutes cooking time to go...Tried this location based on reading reviews....Best Crabs did not disappoint...They were great weight and size, seasoned well, hot and FRESH for days. I will be returning, as I and my family were completely satisfied. One poo-poo was that I had to pay for paper. If one is buying a half bushel or more, paper should be included!

SO FRIENDLY! Love these folks. They always have great crabs. When I called, they made sure to tell me the best deal for my money. Favorite little detail: they have a little rope & pulley for opening the door for you when you're all loaded up with crabs!

This place was really great but they made a weird shift this summer. No more ready-made cakes or sandwiches. Apparently it's all raw crabcakes that you take home to cook. But come on, we're on vacation! I still hope it stays around though.
