Blu Crabhouse and Raw Bar is mostly an Outdoor Restaurant so it limits our availability to take reservations due to the changing weather. So on most nights, weather permitting, we take call a heads for parties of 10 or more. More

BLU Crabhouse and Raw Bar opened its doors in 2012. Beautiful sunset views on the bay. BLU has offerings for everyone.

Awesome steamed MD blue crabs, shrimp and clams, and crab cakes as well as some new twists on the traditions using innovative ingredients and seasonings.

Unique specialty drinks and a draft beer featuring local microbrews and a rotating selection of craft beer specials! You can dine and enjoy refreshing drinks outside on the deck or on the beach at BLU Crabhouse and Raw Bar. It's the "complete package" for a casual, fun, delicious dining experience! Closed for the Season, see you in 2019!!
