I have been buying crabs from Ruff & Ready Crab establishment for years....I have always enjoyed eating crabs from there, they are always fresh....I can't say anything bad about the establishment....Will continue to buy crabs from them.

Ruff N Ready RIP OFF

This place was great for so many years but please be warned. They are now systematically cheating customers by filling the bottom of your bag with bad, soggy, horrid crabs and counting on the fact that you are unlikely to open the bag until you reach your destination. I gave them 3 opportunities to get it right but each time they pulled the same trick. When I complained they told me that I need to inspect the entire bag before I leave their establishment. If you are a crab lover, you know that you keep the bag tight to keep the crabs hot. They count on that. I recently bought a half dozen crabs at a cost of about $3.50 each. There were only two edible crabs in the bag. They carefully place a good crab on top to discourage you from going all the way to the bottom. Please, make sure that you get what you pay for and hopefully Ruff N Ready will someday return to the quality institution that it once was.

Best Crabs

I have been going to rough and ready for crabs for over 15 years. I have never had any crabs in the area that can compare. They even offer very good prices and are always fully stocked for Holidays and are never sold out. I moved from the area about 3 years ago and now have a 30-40 minute drive to get the crabs, the drive is well worth it.
