Dig into one of Florida’s favorite seafood delicacies at Cooters Restaurant & Bar as the stone crab season begins! Cooters 23rd Annual Crab Fest returns Thursday, October 20 – Sunday, October 23.
Start on : October 20, 2016 4:00 PM Thursday
End on : October 23, 2016 8:00 PM Sunday
The event features fresh off the boat Florida Stone Crab plus other crab varieties including King, Snow and Dungeness Crab, all at wholesale prices. In addition, the festival will have live music by local bands and musicians including Sweet Spot, Donte Sweetmusic Man, James (JR) Williams and The Joint Venture Beach Band.
During Crab Fest, Cooters will serve fresh (never frozen!) Florida stone crab. The claws can be ordered hot with drawn butter, or cold with Cooters special homemade sauce. The claws are semi-cracked in the kitchen just prior to serving, and diners are provided with mallets and crab forks.
Although Stone crabs are the headliners, Cooters will also dish up pounds of Snow, King, and Dungeness Crab legs, which are served piping hot with melted butter. For the ultimate culinary delight, try Cooters’ Crab Feast Platter, which is loaded with an array of all of the varieties of crab.
