Joanie's Blue Crab Cafe
Joanie's Blue Crab Cafe Review
West of the nation's tiniest post office by a quarter mile or so, you'll find this red barn of a place dishing out catfish, frogs' legs, gator, grouper, burgers, salads, and (no surprise here) an abundance of soft-shell crabs, crab cakes, and she-crab soup. Entrées run from $12.95 to market priced. Grab a beer from the cooler and eat at one of the tables out front or on the back patio—keep an eye out for Gertrude, a neighborhood gator on the loose. Joanie's doors are open from 10 am to 5 pm, so don't be late for supper.
