You know you’re in a cool crab joint when there’s a glass-encased model of the Budweiser Clydesdales pulling the famous beer wagon above the bar. The recently remodeled dining room, which seats 140, is much brighter, without the familiar dark wood paneling. The mounted sailfish and his other saltwater pals are still on the wall. Lestardo’s offers a full menu, but we’re talking crabs here. These babies are from Texas and Louisana. They’re served year round, and they’re spiced with the founder’s secret seasoning. Try Krista’s spicy crab sauce if you’d like your backfin to bite back.
