Our Soup Crabs are Maryland female hard crabs with the top shells removed and the roe intact. Maryland female crabs have a hearty, full flavor that is also slightly sweet. The flavor adds depth to soups, stews, and marinara sauces.
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.

I am a Maryland native who now lives in Tampa. I miss my crabs especially from the Eastern shore. Now I can count on getting my crabs from The Crab Place a very reliable source and at the best price. Everything is shipped perfectly, packed really well. The crabs I ordered were colossal and heavy males. I found my crab fix for sure!

Server was a little slow and didn't bring hot wings and Ole Bay seasoning. Party was of 5 and she brought tray of crab to only 2 people until we requested that we each get a tray because we each paI'd separately. Besides that we enjoyed ourselves and look forward to coming back.
