Fat Boy's Crab
31278 Old Ocean City Rd, Salisbury, MD 21804
Very pleased with the crabs from Fat Boys. Even the females were fat and full of meat. I'm a retired waterman myself so I know my crabs, and apparently Fat Boys does too. I ordered 2 bushels of live females and they delivered them all the way to Harmony MD for me. The delivery driver was very friendly and knowledgeable--he really knew what he was talking about. Was very impressed. Crabs were still live and fiesty like they should have been, even coming all the way from Salisbury. Will continue to use Fat Boys whenever I need crabs.
Place was recommended to me by a family memnber, and I was not disappointed. Traveled from Preston, MD to Salisbury just to try them out, and was really impressed. Ordered a bushel of jumbo steamed crabs that came with sweety corn, and all was perfect. But the best part, I just found out that Fat Boys now delivers! No longer will I have to travel an hour and a half for crabs, next time they said that they can come to me!! Thank you Fat Boys!
I was almost afraid to try this place because I read a few bad reviews, but am happy to say they were all WRONG!! Just a bunch of haters hating on a great local establishment. The best place to get crabsw, especially if they cook them for you--their cooks know what they're doing! Crbs were fat and meaty, had just right amount of seasoning, and were hot and ready when I arrived to pick them up. Very happy with this place. Will buy from here again.
PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!
NEVER AGAIN! WISH I HAD READ THESE REVIEWS BEFORE FOOLING WITH THESE CLOWNS. I BUY A HALF BUSHEL LAST NIGHT AND AS SOON AS I GET TO THE CRABS UNDER THE FIRST LAYER THEY WERE COLD. THEY STEAM A FEW CRABS THROW THEM OVER TOP OF A BUNCH OF OLD ONES AND PASS THEM OFF TO YOU.
SO I CALL AND COMPLAIN AND THE LADY WHO ANSWERS COULD CARE LESS BECAUSE SHE ALREADY KNOW THEY ARE SHADY. SAD THEY ARE SO DESPERATE! AND THIS JOHNNY PERSON BELOW IS SURE ENOUGH THE OWNER.. PLEASE! AND IT STINKS SO BAD IN THERE PROBABY FROM ALL THE DEAD CRABS THEY PASS OFF. SMH
After getting steamed crabs more than a dozen times the past couple years I've never gotten what I ordered. They are always 'smaller'. On top of that the last order had 2 'ILLEGAL VIRGIN' females. Its a wonder they stay in business. The post from N. Carolina must be a relative to say they drive 5 hours from there for crabs. Ha!
That I have never had such poor customer service in my life. The crabs are dead half of the time and the owner or manager was so rude that on fathers day, they handed me a half bushel of crabs that were stone cold and probably dead and when I mentioned that they were not fresh or hot, he told me to take it or leave it. I actually said I would take them but would not be back. At that, he grabbed the crabs and told me I could not even have them and he does not need customers like me! I got some nice crabs, not one dead one, at 1 fish 2 fish crabs and seafood down the road. Their number is (410) 219 fish and I do not work for them or even know them but I hope if you read this review and are looking for crabs in the Salisbury area that you go somewhere other than Fat Boys!!!
HAD TO USE ONE STAR TO POST - BUT WOULD REALLY SAY NO STARS!!!!
We got 1/2 bushel of "live" # 1 jimmies FOR $75.00 yesterday, and 11 of 33 were dead when we got them home. When my daughter called to complain, she was told that was NORMAL, and when she told them she knew better (she has worked at Waterman's in OC two summers), they hung up on her. I called today and asked for a manager and asked if they were willing to do something about it he again said that was A NORMAL RATE - 22 0F 33 CRABS ALIVE - and when I let him know that it was not - I have been cooking live crabs for more than thirty years - he hung up on me, also. I suspect they also cook and sell dead crabs. I don't know which is worse - the rip-off or their attitude.
