6 Crab Restaurants in Salisbury, MD That Will Get You Out of a Pinch

In a Pinch to Find the Best Crab Restaurants in Town? From the Eastern Shore to the Salisbury ‘Burbs, We’ve Put Together a List of Our Top Picks

Hello dear internet reader and welcome to my article on the best crab places a person can find when they are in Salisbury, Maryland. And as you might expect from a city so close to the shoreline, there is plenty of fresh and delicious crab to be had in the city of Salisbury. And while only one of the restaurants on my list today explicitly bills themselves as a crab restaurant, you can rest assured that the rest of them are seafood restaurants that serve an amazing crab dish. 

And because I’m such a good guy I am going to provide you with a link to each of these restaurants' websites. That way you can check out everything they have to offer. And I’ll also include their address so that way you can just tap the address and have your phone's gps app just take you right to their front door. And even though not many on the list today did, I will also let you know each and every time one of these fantastic crab restaurants accepts our modern, sleek, and convenient digital GiftYa gift cards. 

What’s a GiftYa?

As a reminder a GiftYa digital gift card is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. A gift card that functions just like every other gift card. It lets you make purchases at a participating bar, restaurant, or store up to the face value of the gift card. However, unlike traditional gift cards. GiftYa digital gift cards come with a few additional benefits. For instance, unlike a traditional gift card, a GiftYa can be sent straight to your phone in seconds. That way you don’t need to deliver a GiftYa in person if you want to give it as a gift. You don’t even have to go to a store in person if you want one for yourself. You can just visit the GiftYa website and pick one up today.

Since GiftYa cards are sent directly to your phone you never have to worry about misplacing them or forgetting to take them with you. In most instances you are going to have your phone with you so in most instances you will have your GiftYa cards right in your pocket. In addition to that, your GiftYa also keeps track of the balance for you. Which is so much nicer than having to try to remember how much was left over on those antiquated plastic gift cards. I mean you can’t write it on them very easily so idk what you’re supposed to do if you don’t use the total value the first time? Just guess the next time you are in town? 

Old Mill Crab House

Award Winning Crab Right Around The Salisbury Area

The Old Mill Crab House is hands down the best place to get crab if you are in Salisbury, Maryland. Not only are you going to be able to get absolutely fantastic crab here, you are going to be able to get it prepared in a wide variety of ways and served in a wide variety of dishes. And I mean what else could you expect from a restaurant that calls itself the crab house?

And they walk the walk as much as they talk the talk at Old Mill Crab House. Their steamed and spiced blue crabs are literally award winning. And you can also expect a wide variety of other seafood based dishes. And you don’t need to worry about your party size. They can accommodate anything from two people to two hundred people (with the proper notice that is). So if you are craving crab and you are in Salisbury, Maryland, it’s well worth the drive over the Delaware border to get some award winning crab prepared however you like it at Old Mill Crab House.

“The food is very very good. Always a crowd. If you love seafood this the place. Only problem is they are closed during the winter.” - Yelp Review

Mogan’s Oyster House

Delicious Crab. To Die For Oysters. And Mind Boggling Mac and Cheese

100 E Main St | Salisbury| .mogansoysterhouse.com

I know that with a name like Mogan’s Oyster House you would expect them to have great oysters instead of crab. And while they do have absolutely incredible oysters, they also have plenty of excellent crab dishes on the menu. One of the most popular crab items they feature are crab cakes. And while Old Mill Crab House might have award winning crab, the crab cakes at Mogan’s are out of this world. 

And on top of serving excellent crab and oyster, Mogan’s also serves Newburg Mac and Cheese which consist of cavatappi pasta, lobster, shrimp, scallop, mornay sauce, buttered panko crumbs, served with roasted broccoli. And it’s apparently so good people have to order it on the spot as soon as they see it served up at a neighboring table. 

“Chefs kiss. The staff was great abs the food was even better. I wish I could remember the name of my sever. He was super cool and helpful. And the manger came out to check on us which was a nice touch. Definitely going back!” - Yelp Review

You can’t get a digital GiftYa gift card to Mogan’s Oyster House at the moment but be sure to check back soon as new crab restaurants and locations in Salisbury are added all the time

Skipjack's Seafood

The Newest Restaurant On the List That Features An Amazing Crab Dish 

1204 Old Ocean City Rd | Salisbury | Facebook

Skipjack’s Seafood is new to the Salisbury restaurant scene, but in the short time they have been around they have built a pretty positive online presence, as well as plenty of positive word of mouth. And while Skipjack’s doesn’t necessarily specialize in crab, the menu options they do offer with crab are out of this world. So if you are in the area dying for some delicious crab for dinner, and you want to help support a local small business then I would highly recommend giving Skipjacks a try. You can count on getting fast and delicious crab dishes served up by a friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere. I mean really, what do you have to lose by giving them a shot?

“These guys rock. I love crabs. I really love crabs. I love my wife too. But a good dozen jumbo crabs like what I got today.... I'm glad I don't have to choose. Don't get me wrong, I love my wife. But those are some killer crabs: large, heavy, sweet, and ready to go.” - Yelp Review 

Unfortunately Skipjack's Seafood isn’t one of the crab restaurants in Salisbury participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.

Beach to Bay Seafood Company

Crab, Shrimp, Lobster You Name it And Beach to Bay Has Perfected It.

12138 Carole Ln | Princess Anne| Facebook 

Beach to Bay Seafood Company was actually featured as the very top of my list on my article about the best seafood places there are in Salisbury, Maryland. The only thing that knocked them so far down the list today, is that they don’t specialize in crab. In fact the issue at Beach to Bay is that  there are so many delicious menu options that you might not even be interested in crab by the time you get done pursuing their menu. But if you do go with one of their crab dishes, you can be sure they won’t disappoint as everybody who stops there seems to rave about how out of the world their food is.

“Amazing food! Gf and I had the crab soup and flounder sandwich. Very delicious! The soup was very flavorful and packed with crab. The staff, despite COVID, was very friendly! Will be going back when I visit Princess Anne again!” - Yelp Review 

Right now you aren’t able to get a GiftYa digital gift card to Beach to Bay Seafood Company but check back because there’s more crab restaurants and stores in Salisbury added all the time.

1 Fish 2 Fish Crabs And Seafood

Best Cream of Crab Soup You Can Find In Salisbury 

1019 Eastern Shore Dr | Salisbury | Facebook

1 Fish 2 Fish Crabs and Seafood comes in at fifth place on our list today. And that is because although they do specialize in crab dishes, they don’t have an amazing track record with customers. So if everything else on the list today is either too far of a drive, or just didn’t have the crab dish you were looking for then I would give 1 Fish 2 Fish a try. But really in any other scenario I would choose one of the spectacular restaurants from further up the list. 

“Bay-beeeeee this cream of crab soup is BOMB! The best. So rich so creamy. So delicious. I asked him what was in it. He said it's secret.” - Yelp Review 

There aren’t GiftYa digital gift cards available for 1 Fish 2 Fish Crabs And Seafood as of the date of this writing, but there might be now! Be sure to check GiftYa itself for all the gift cards available for crab restaurants  in Salisbury.

In the current economic forecast everybody is trying to make sure their dollar stretches just a little bit further these days. And I can understand those of you out there who don’t want to try some off the wall random restaurant no matter what some random internet commentator has to say about it. So if you want a place that is a sure thing. Maybe not out of this world, but something that will meet your expectations at a fair price, then you might want to give the Salisbury Red Lobster a try. After all, Red Lobster is one of America’s largest and most visited fast food chains in the country. 

“Start to finish, from the time we walked in and were greeted to leaving and being thanked for coming - our visit was 5 stars.” - Yelp Review

That’s it!

There you go dear internet traveler. That is a list of the best crab restaurants you can find in Salisbury, Maryland. I know I cheated a little bit and featured one from Delaware, but they appeared at the top of every list no matter how I phrased it so I assumed they are just that good, so I felt I had to include them so that way you guys wouldn’t miss out. 

I tried to give you a little bit of menu diversity, but when you aren’t just looking for seafood restaurants, but crab restaurants in particular there is only so much I can do. But this list featured everything from award winning blue crab through to die for cream of crab soup so I tried the best I could. But if you didn't find what you were looking for on this list today, be sure to check out our list on the best sushi places, and best seafood restaurants you can find in Salisbury
