The Crab Place Seafood Review

See ALL of our Seafood Reviews

Many people love the idea of fresh seafood delivered right to their door and ready to cook. Unfortunately for most people, finding quality seafood isn't easy. The few grocery stores that offer fresh seafood don't have much variety, and often charge high prices for what they do carry.

However, a growing number of people have found fresh seafood - including lobster, fish, shrimp, oysters, and more - from online seafood stores. With the internet, fresh seafood is only one click away from anyone wanting the best seafood delivered direct to their doorstep. Plus, many of these seafood stores offer excellent gift packages that are sure to impress seafood lovers.

THE CRAB PLACE

The Crab Place motto pretty much sums it up "Maryland Seafood Delivered from our dock to your door." Greg Cain started The Crab Place in 1997 in Crisfield, Maryland. As the business grew more family members and others joined the team. The company began by selling and shipping fresh Maryland crab caught daily by local watermen and now offers a comprehensive seafood delivery website.

Despite the name, The Crab Place provides a plethora of fresh seafood options including live lobster, oysters, fresh fish, shrimp, breaded seafood and several crab varieties. We really liked the look of the website , the ease of use, the clear attractive pictures and the easy search maneuverability.

If you're looking for a gift at The Crab Place they mainly offer gift cards but you are easily able to make any selection and the check out process allows you to include a gift message.

The Crab Place says they offer the guaranteed lowest price on the web, when we compared their prices to several competitors we found they were a little on the high end. However, if you join their yearly VIP club for $49.00 the shipping costs drop in half making your total cost lower priced than most.

In the event you aren't satisfied as a result of product spoilage or a high mortality rate on live crabs, upon the shipments arrival, The Crab Place will replace free of charge.

In the end we really enjoyed the website including the layout, professionalism, pictures, check out process and ease in finding the information we were looking for. If live crabs are what you are after The Crab Place should probably be your first choice. But, we felt that without the VIP membership the prices were a little steep.
