The prices are a bit expensive but worth it. I get the crab cakes every time because every bite they are filled with crab not filling like other places. The hush puppies are amazing to.

Just opened this week for the season! Excellent crab and cheese dip with bread along with a Margareta and home made chips! Love this place after a walk on the boardwalk. Next to PNC parking lot.

We have had lunch and dinner at the blue crab many times. We have enjoyed the burgers, fries, fish and chips, and also the fish of the day, and steamed craps. The crab cakes were a disappointment.
