We had the crab cakes that are really good chunks of crab with little filler. The gazpacho is so good, like a fresh salsa soup. Worth a stop if vacationing

I can't recall, but this time of year, I'd bet they do. Wouldn't wait til September since July and August are prime time for blue claws. As the air chills, crabs move further offshore and to warmer water. Enjoy one for me!
