Best Crab House

  Readers, upstate: Lestardo’s Crab House (135 Christiana Road, New Castle, 328-5070)
  Readers, downstate: Old Mill Crab House (8829 Waller Road, Delmar, 846-2808)
  Critics, upstate: 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. (135 Christiana Road, New Castle, 328-5070)
  Critics, downstate: Poppiti thinks Sambo’s Tavern “should be a Hall of Fame consideration. When you think Delaware crab house, you think Sambo’s.” The crabs, crab cakes and softshell crab sandwiches are all good, but Poppiti loves the view. “What a sight to see the crab boats docking at the back of the restaurant and unloading the day’s catch.” (283 Front St., Leipsic, 674-9724)
