TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Legal Sea Foods began in 1950 when George Berkowitz opened a fish market in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The business expanded in 1968 when the family opened their first seafood restaurant, right next store to the fish market. The early success of the restaurant led to further expansion and today has grown to several seafood restaurants, especially strong along the Eastern Seaboard.

The same family still owns the business and maintains that they are a fish company in the restaurant business. If you've ever eaten at a Legal Sea Foods restaurant, you know that delicious lobster, shrimp, fish and more is the only thing you'll find on your plate. Their seafood delivery business delivers the same top quality seafood to their online customers.

We found that Legal Sea Foods consistently received high praise from customers of their online seafood store. They also make seafood gift giving easy with several gift options ranging in price. You can purchase a wonderful box of seafood for your family, friend or business acquaintance - or, a gourmet gift combo including seafood and steak, or a gift certificate of your choosing. The website makes it easy to find exactly what you're looking for from start to finish.

When comparing prices between the Legal Sea Foods selection of shrimp, lobster, oysters and more, we found that they fall in the middle of the range. We were encouraged that you could find such wonderful, high quality seafoodat such affordable prices. We believe that has to do with the high quantity of seafood they purchase, and that they're able to pass some of those savings on to their customers. Most seafood orders are sent the next day in order to maintain freshness. Lobsters arrive live if desired, and are ready for boiling that night.

Legal Sea Foods provides excellent, customer friendly service. They offer a satisfaction guarantee should something go wrong with the order. They do their best to make the purchase right and maintain a satisfied customer.

Legal Sea Foods exceeded our expectations in selection, price and service. Because of their professional approach to delivering quality seafood at such affordable prices, Legal Sea Foods has earned our highest rating.

Chesapeake Bay Crabcakes

CHESAPEAKE BAY CRABCAKES Visit Site

Gift Options:

Gift tag with any purchase

Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes specializes in Crab Cakes and other prepared seafood appetizers, biscuits, soups, entrees and more. Their company is headquartered out of Baltimore Maryland. You will find limited uncooked seafood here and no live lobsters, fresh fish or shrimp. Most of the food is heat and serve and is geared well for those looking to entertain at home but without the skill and hassle necessary to make from scratch.

If you love crab cakes Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes has all sizes and varieties for appetizers and meals or somewhere in between. Ingredients in their specialty cakes includes premium jumbo lump crabmeat that is handpicked and a secret recipe of herbs, spices and more. Cakes are then flash frozen to preserve the taste and flavor. We found reviews of very happy crab cake customers along with those that were less impressed - the reviews were mixed overall.

If you're in the market for a seafood gift, Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes allows you to pick out any item and attach a gift message - they do not have a special line of items dedicated for gift giving. But, we liked the idea of sending a nice gift of prepared seafood to someone special.

Prices on much of the products was generally more expensive than raw seafood as it's prepared by a chef and ready for baking. In comparing the cost of crab cakes to other stores we found them generally in the mid range for pricing.

In the event you aren't happy with your purchase as a result of issues in transit, Chesapeake Bay Crab Company will replace your product or refund if the package arrives late, thawed, or damaged in any way.

Overall, we felt that Chesapeake Bay Crab Company was not the company for most looking for fresh seafood. With mixed reviews on the taste of their prepared food we left feeling like a higher ranked seafood provider was probably a better option for most.
