There are fancier crab houses, and there are closer crab houses, but the Sea Hut Inn has a certain quality that can’t help but win us over. Admittedly, we have friends who are scared to go there, because, in addition to being a crab house, it is something of a dive bar. Even in the middle of the day, there’ll be a bunch of guys bellied up to the bar with cold Coors Lights. Maybe that’s why we like it so much. It’s dark and a little bit seedy, but the beer is cheap and cold, and the crabs are fresh, from Maryland, and have a delicious spice, devised by the Yim family, who own the joint. It’s a place we love to spend a few hours in, with good friends, getting sloppy with a few dozen crustaceans. You should too.
