A cruise on the Miles River, and lunch at the famous Crab Claw Restaurant for the best crab cakes you will ever eat will…”make your day” to borrow a famous quote.
A day in St Michaels is a day to remember. St. Michaels is steeped in history dating from before the American Revolution, and is known as “The Town That Fooled the British” from a skirmish during the War of 1812. The ambiance of colonial and Victorian era charm is enchanting and can be enjoyed throughout your visit.
The Crab Claw Restaurant evolved from a clam shucking and crab business in the 1950’s to a seafood eatery in June, 1965. Delectable fresh seafood has always been their hallmark and customers seek out the relaxed and causal setting within a stone’s throw of the water. Please choose your meal when you make your booking: Two Crab Cakes, Crab Imperial or Fried Chicken.
Known for their steamed Maryland blue crabs and other choice seafood, they also offer Delmarva fried chicken and beef among their entrees. Cold beer, cocktails and other beverages are available to enhance your meal. www.thecrabclaw.com
After the lunch you will have some free time to explore the quaint shoppes of the village.
