As a Marylander, I've been cracking crabs for nearly 50 years. While in Easton recently, I stopped in at Al's for the first time to take crabs back to the hotel.
MY GOD! These folks do it nicely. I'm going back. Although the price was a bit high....althought that may have been the early season market.
We have a summer home in Claiborne that's been in our family for years, and Big Al's has always been our favorite place for seafood. Best steamed crabs around! Almost hate to tell too many people about the secret!
My wife and I have made the 4+ hour round trip to Big Al's 4 times in the past year. My 89 year old Grandfather making the last trip after the way we talked about the seafood. Steamed crabs, oysters, crabcake and soft-shell crab sandwiches are the best.
