Our fresh, hearty, full-flavored oysters range in flavor from buttery sweet and slightly salty to rich, briny and slightly metallic. Connoisseurs enjoy their oysters raw, but this versatile favorite is just as good steamed, baked, grilled, broiled, sautéed, fried and frittered. They're so tasty that you will forget they are low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals. Sold in the shell and shucked.
About CrabPlace.com crabs—In 1989, the Maryland Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun) was designated the State Crustacean. Its name honors Mary Jane Rathbun, the scientist who described the species in 1896. The blue crab's scientific name translates as "beautiful swimmer that is savory."
Blue crab meat is sometimes compared to lobster meat, the flavor best appreciated by cracking and eating steamed hardshells. Crabs are prepared in restaurants and in home kitchens, steamed or sauteed, as Maryland crab cakes and Crab Imperial, or in crab soup and crab dip.
CrabPlace.com has been perfecting the art of shipping Maryland crabs over the last 14 years to its base of tens of thousands of customers across the U.S. You won't find a finer gourmet experience.

I ordered 1.5 bushels of jumbo crabs that arrived in perfect condition via FedEx Ground. This was my first time ordering steamed crabs and I had wanted to order live crabs but before I did I called them to learn more about shipping options etc. The weather was super hot, humid and rainy that week so they explained how that would affect live crabs, which are extremely perishable. The steamed crabs did not disappoint and I would not hesitate to order them again. Customer service is terrific---Matt Cain emailed me about the ordering process and current supply of crabs after I placed my order. I highly recommend the Crab Place.
