Best Crab House, 2014:
Lestardo’s Crab House serves pub decor with the requisite nautical decorations, cold draft beer and fairly priced crabs all year. Get there early.
It’s hard to find steamed blue crabs year-round—especially when the worst oil spill in history threatened their habitat on the Gulf Coast. That’s why people are so grateful for Lestardo’s Crab House, a Hare’s Corner classic. Apps include fried clams and peel-and-eat shrimp, shellacked trophy fish hang on the wall and friendly waitstaff bring you fresh, plump crabs doused in a housemade spice blend.
Grab a hammer and crank up the jukebox. Lestardo’s Crab House is a classic crab house without the view. But who needs scenery when you’re cracking into spicy steamed blue crabs and drinking cold beer? Lestardo’s serves crabs year-round and offers a menu full of seafood, as well as some tasty appetizers. The crabs are always good and the staff is always friendly and attentive. Now dig in.
