The big red building reminds you of a barn, and the crabs inside are definitely farmed fresh out of the Chesapeake and its tributaries. Steamers, located just outside of Bethany Beach in Millville, is hustling and bustling carryout, even on a weekday.

 

The crabs, delivered daily, are sorted by size. At Steamers’ seafood counter, a pleasant young woman tips us off that the medium/large are heavy, so we opt for a dozen of the 5 ½-inch to 6-inch crabs and wait patiently on the parking lot since each order is cooked to order.

 

About 20 to 25 minutes later, the counter woman yells out our name. The bag’s weight tells me the tip and our $37 pay off.

 

Back in Ocean City, we pop a couple of adult beverages and start cracking. The crabs are very full and well seasoned. Many of these 6-inch crabs clocked in closer to 6 ½. The count is a baker’s dozen.  (Don’t you love crab shacks that do that? I do.)

 

While Steamers is only a carryout, it scores well for efficiency and friendliness. Offering a variety of seafood, including oysters, scallops and homemade Maryland crab soup, it definitely made the list of beach crab joints to try again.

Situated on the bay right on Route 54 just outside Fenwick Island, this quaint restaurant/bar attracts a good number of friendly locals. You’ll love the view, especially if you sit on the deck like we did.

 

The Louisiana crabs – larges – were well seasoned with a blend that Roscoe, our server, said was Bayside’s own. Large lumps of crab came out of these babies. They definitely were bottom-dwellers based on their blackened shells. There wasn’t a light one in the bunch. Of course, you would have hoped that for $65 a dozen they might have made it a baker’s dozen.

 

On a scale of 5, Bayside gets a 5 for the friendly factor – from both the server and the number of bargoers who came out on the deck for a smoke and to find out how the crabs were.

 

I’d give the service a 4 and the actual crabs a 4. Of course, it was early in the season – May 8 – when we checked them out.
