Wednesday December 31, 2014 We do have a pretty good supply of fresh Florida stone crabs for New Year's Eve! We have all you can eat as well as regular single plate dinners with large and medium size claws. Jumbo claws are on the menu as 1.25 lb dinners and 2 lb dinners. ____________________ Monday December 29, 2014 We have 50 lbs of mediums, 75 lbs of large and a handful of jumbos coming in for tonight. I was told the delivery today would be larger, but there is huge demand side pressure as New Year's approaches. So, come earlier rather than later for stone crabs tonight. The mediums will be on thee menu as one and two pound dinners and the large will be on the menu for all you can eat as well as one and two pound dinners. A note about New Year's: We are doing everything possible to bring more claws in. I'm told we should be getting a good supply, I will post again tomorrow as to whether that came true or not. We are open New year's Eve and New year's Day with our regular menu and regular operational hours for regular folks that want to go out, but want to be able to ring in the New year from the comfort and safety of home. Oh... and by the way, it's shrimp night tonight and Tuesday! _____________________ Saturday December 27, 2014 We got fresh Florida stone crabs in today and we got enough to offer the all you can eat dinners on medium and large claws! It's also Louisiana Saturday Night! ____________________ Thursday night December 25, 2014 Approximately 10:30PM I hope everyone had an enjoyable Holiday and a Merry Christmas! I have been waiting for word on stone crabs for Friday the 26th and I know we are getting stone crabs. I just don't know exactly how much we are going to have at this precise moment. But I do know we are getting some and I'll know more sometime in the morning. So stand by... :-) _____________________ Wednesday December 24, 2014 Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! We are open today, Christmas Eve until about 9:00PM tonight. We are closed tomorrow for Christmas Day. We will be open Friday our regular hours. As for stone crabs, We will have fresh Florida stone crabs today. There will be medium, large and jumbo claws offered as one and two pound dinners. I wish there were more, but the holiday season adds enormous pressure to the demand side and the get very difficult to obtain. But we have them for tonight. (I'm still awaiting word on what will be available this Friday) Looking further ahead on the calender, we are open our regular hours on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day with our regular menu. Merry Christmas! ______________________ Friday December 19, 2014 Good supply of fresh Florida stone crabs due in today. ______________________ Thursday December 18, 2014 We have fresh Florida stone crabs today... medium and large claws. No jumbos came in today. On this day in history: December 18, 1865, Secretary of State William H. Seward proclaimed adoption of The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Video here ____________________ Tuesday December 16, 2014 Sorry... I didn't get this note up earlier. We are receiving a good supply of fresh Florida stone crabs today. We will have plenty of medium and large claws. Jumbo and colossal claws just a few pounds. It's also shrimp day today! ____________________ Saturday December 13, 2014 We have fresh Florida stone crabs in today! Call 954-566-5333 for details. It's also this tonight! ____________________ Tuesday December 9, 2014 So last Thursday the electric company (FPL) was replacing the utility pole behind the restaurant. There was going to be about six hours of down time without electricity. So the plan, of which we had been notified, was to be completely out of the building by 10PM and the new pole installed and new power cables attached and electricity would once again be flowing into the restaurant and we could open normally Friday morning. This is three phase electric and the workers mixed up the order to each of the three legs and accidentally crossed two of the legs. That meant when the two 7.5 ton three phase air conditioners were turned on they ran the compressors backwards. That's not good. And in fact, one unit was destroyed by this. Fortunately, our system is set up as a two stage system in which the second 7.5 ton unit kicks on when the overall system has difficulty bringing the dining room down to comfortable temperature. So only one of the units was destroyed. But yesterday the brand new 7.5 ton replacement A/C was installed and paid for and what's the temperature today? It's 63°F outside. Oh... and plenty of fresh Florida stone crabs are due in today! And... it's this today too! ____________________ Friday December 5, 2014 We have a good amount of fresh Florida stone crabs coming in today. Medium, large and jumbo claws. Call 954-566-5333 for seating information and prices. ____________________ Thursday December 4, 2014 We have fresh Florida stone crabs in for today, but a lighter load, so come earlier rather than later. Both of those statements are due to the fact that Florida Power & Light is changing the utility pole behind the restaurant and is going to cut power tonight around 10:00PM. In addition to fresh Florida stone crabs, Thursday night is also Alaskan Snow Crab legs, all YOU can eat for $34! ______________________ Tuesday December 2, 2014 We should be receiving a good supply of fresh Florida stone crabs today. Medium and large claws will be all you can eat as well as single plate dinners, jumbo claws will be on the menu as one-and-a-quarter pound dinners and as two pound dinners.

As availability develops over the next couple of days, updates will be posted here. But don't despair. Our Alaskan snow crab legs are all you can eat today for $34 and as this video shows... they're awesome! __________________ Saturday October 18, 2014 The good news is we expect more fresh Florida stone crabs in today! We will offer all you can eat for as long as supplies hold out. Regular single plate dinners are on the menu too. The less than good news is... supplies are still not matching demand, therefore prices remain unchanged. Video ___________________ Friday October 17, 2014 We are expecting a few more stone crabs in today, but the overall level of inventory is going to be too low to offer a constant menu of all you can eat. On a case by case basis for people who are actually sitting at the table the decision can be made as to whether or not there are enough stone crab claws to make an all you can eat dinner possible. As the ad to the right notes, "all you can eat will be subject to market conditions." We will be able to offer jumbo, large and medium claws at very good prices. I wish it was otherwise, but despite initial reports of a good catch, the levels of stone crabs expected have not materialized. I did hear some reports that a lot of fishermen were not putting all of their traps out this first weekend. The only thing that makes any sense about that is it was a tactic designed to keep supply of stone crabs low so that the price is kept at very high levels. So far, based on the supply of stone crabs and the prices, it looks like this tactic may be fairly widespread. ____________________ Thursday October 16, 2014 Fresh Florida stone crabs are in! We have medium, large and jumbo claws. Since you read this journal, you're one of the few who know about "Call ahead seating" as described in the previous post below. It works. See you tonight! _______________________ Wednesday October 15, 2014 Just got off the phone with the stone crab fish house we deal with and we will get fresh Florida stone crabs tomorrow. Call 954-566-5333 for call ahead seating. That means call 30-45 minutes prior to your estimated arrival time. When you do arrive, check in with the hostess and she will have your name on the priority seating list and your waiting time will be short... or no wait at all. ___________________ Friday Oct. 10, 2014 We plan on fresh Florida stone crabs in house on Thursday October 16th!
