Rustic Inn Crab Home, a candy hideaway simply off the overwhelmed path in Fort Lauderdale is simply because the identify counsel, a seafood restaurant with a country flare. I can’t inform you that it’s the finest seafood restaurant in Fort Lauderdale since I’ve not been to all of them, however I can inform you it has an excellent environment, affords waterfront eating, and it’s not too removed from the Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood Airport.
We went on a weekday at round 6:30 p.m. The principle eating room was closed however the patio was open for seating. We checked in with the hostess and was seated in direction of the wall as an alternative by the water, as there are two rows one in direction of the water and the opposite in direction of the wall. We have been seated by the wall however as quickly as the parents throughout from us bought up from their desk we requested to be seated there. If it wasn’t my first time going it in all probability wouldn’t have mattered however on this case I wished to be close to the water for extra causes than one.
From the menu you’ll be able to select from a wide range of seafood gadgets. Appetizers included gadgets similar to fried calamari, recent oysters, Key West Shrimp, frog legs, sure frog legs, and imagine it or not there was additionally fried alligators on the menu, in addition to conch salad and extra. Then there may be the collection of mouth watering entrées just like the Crab Sampler which is made up of several types of crabs served with parslied potatoes, Alaskan King Crab Legs or the one which I selected Dungeness Garlic Crabs.
The Dungeness Garlic Crabs comes served drenched in a buttery garlic sauce, and it’s additionally served with a further bowl of garlic sauce. Trying on the photograph on the menu I questioned if the crabs I ordered can be enough sufficient to fill me up as a result of I observed that it wasn’t served with some other aspect gadgets like a number of the others. So due to that I ordered a Caesar Salad to start out with, however to my shock it was greater than sufficient crab than I may deal with. I ended up having to take some residence. I believe it was greater than sufficient crabs legs for two folks, about 6 clusters of juicy, buttery, and fleshy mouthwatering crabs. I can nonetheless style and scent them as a I sit right here writing about it. My favourite elements are the claws as a result of they’re full of all that meaty goodness 🤤.
Okay again to the menu… Different decisions included Complete Broiled Lobster, Lobster Rolls, Filet of Mahi-Mahi, and The home Specials. Additionally they serve up pasta dishes and for you none seafood lovers in addition they supply steak and hen. There may be additionally a children menu for the little ones. As well as you’ll be able to select from a collection of wines, cocktails, and frozen drinks in addition to non-alcoholic decisions like scorching tea, espresso, and juice, and who doesn’t like to finish their meal with a great dessert.
Other than my meal, and the waterfront seating, one other factor I liked in regards to the Rustic Inn Crab Home is how they announce somebody’s birthday every time over the microphone and invite everybody to choose up their gavels and begin banging for the birthday boy or woman. Everybody would begin banging them concurrently.
Chances are you’ll be questioning why everybody has gavels, the gavels are given to make use of as a utensil, they’re used to bang the crab legs to crack them open as an alternative of the same old seafood cracker instruments given at some eating places. Additionally earlier than you might be served your meal, you might be given an enormous plastic bib with the restaurant’s identify on it to cowl your self from splashes that may happen whereas cracking the legs.
Our waiter was good and as I discussed earlier than the environment was good. It was an excellent eating expertise.
