If you are looking for a WOW factor seafood dining experience, then look no further than the Crab Stop of Sebastian! This is my go to place when I want to impress out of town guests with their large overflowing seafood bowls. Owners Ellis & Brandy Buckner opened this place a little over 3 years ago and business has been booming ever since. Their menu features king crab, snow crab, peel & eat shrimp, scallops, crawfish, stone crab claws (when in season) fried shrimp, garlic red potatoes, sliced sausage, garlic eggs, all dusted with their secret spice blend, and then lots of garlic butter ladled over the top. When they bring your order to the table, the aroma of the garlic butter is intoxicating! Be sure to wear your “crab eat’n” clothes, this is a full contact sport and it’s gonna get messy!
As a food writer that eats at a lot of places in town, it’s getting harder and harder to impress me, yet these folks somehow managed to do just that. Everything was beyond fresh and cooked to order. The flavors were bold and everything was seasoned to perfection.
