Planning a crab feast?

Here's our expert guide to ensure you have enough crabs and how to order.

 

Depending how many people you're feeding and the crab sizes, follow these recommendations


1 person: #1's - order a half dozen | #2's or #3's - order 1 dozen

2 people: #1's - order 1 & 1/2 dozen |#2's or #3's - order the Wicker's 2 dozen special

Family Pack (3-4 people) - order a half bushel special:  #1's average 2 & 1/2 dozen | #2's or #3's average 3 & 1/2 dozen

6 or more?  Order 1 bushel minimum of any size crab, plus red potatoes and corn. Be sure to order 1-2 additional items such as shrimp, sausage or oysters for the non-crab enthusiasts
