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!

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!

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!

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!

Fresh Florida stone crabs due in today. We're very well set with
medium, large and jumbo claws.
Be sure to call 30-45 minutes prior to your estimated time of arrival.
that should get your name to the top of the wait list so that when you
do arrive, your table is ready with minimal delay. For driving-safety
reasons, you're not tied to a specific time. If your name comes to the
top of the wait list before your actual arrival time, it simply waits for
your arrival. It's flagged as a "call-ahead" so you simply check in with
the hostesses upon arrival. This way, you're not compelled to rush if
some delay happens. See you all tonight! :)

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.

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.
