Don't get me wrong. I love Bubba Gumps, and Joe's Crab Shack. The only problem is that they are chain restaraunts so you can eat them anywhere you travel. I want my guests to go where the "locals" go. I want them to experience the real deal.
If you want a down home, authentic Floridian Crab House where jeans and t shirts are the favorable attire, then the Rustic Inn is the place for you! They tie your bib, give you a wooden mallet, offer a pitcher of beer, and suggest some gator and frog leg apps....all on a paper covered table.
