"My last order of steamed crabs were the best crabs I have had in a long time. When I opened the box, I was really surprised to see how well they were packed - like a picture. They were also very tasty and heavy as I requested. My wife also loved them. Many thanks to you all at Crab Dynasty." -Robert of Cranford, NJ

If steamed crabs will be served along with other food, about six crabs per person. If you will be eating crabs solely as your main course, then you can plan for approximately eight to a dozen crabs per person. Generally, a bushel of large sized crabs can feed about eight persons. * Please keep in mind that these numbers are "approximate" and are intended to help you determine a ballpark number of crabs to order.
