They have the best fresh seafood around. And the employees are always a delight. I love it when they ask "are you cooking or are we?". Sometimes they steam it for us and others we take home to cook ourselves. I go there almost weekly!

When I want the best fresh seafood, I go to Crab King. I've been there many times, but my first trip is the one I remember most. When you first walk in the establishment, I was struck by how clean and immaculate it was. When buying seafood, I expect to see a fanatically clean place and Crab King is just that! So if you want very fresh seafood, go to Crab King!

Although this place offered a few to go prepared items, I can't speak to them. What I can say is that their seafood is fresh and excellent. I am a local and have been buying there for years. I can't swear you won't ever buy fresh, raw seafood that isn't perfect .... but I can say I have never done so. Jimmy has been in the seafood business since he was a child and knows all the local waterman. He gets the best available and maintains and presents it as well as anyone possibly could. Thank you from me to a great source of reliable high quality product.

When visiting Virginia's Northern Neck (a place to get away from the crowds), tasting the local seafood is a must. I asked a local where to buy some and was directed to Crab King. It is a truly local experience for the region's oysters, clams and of all things Sugar Toads! They are a local puffer fish deep fried pufferfish that I have never seen anywhere but all the locals regard as comfort food. Good place to stop by to load up for a picnic!
