National Crab Meat Day is coming up on March 9th and we are ready to celebrate at Ropewalk in Bethany Beach, DE! Did you know that 1.5 million tons of crab meat are consumed every year? They also happen to be one of America’s favorite crustaceans and we are happy to celebrate their deliciousness.
Living on the coast sure has its perks and fresh seafood is one of them. With so many ways to cook crab, we love to include it in our Ropewalk dishes. Check out some of our favorites on the menu and come on out to Ropewalk to try them for yourself!
