After working in the seafood industry from their home state of Louisiana for over forty years, shipping Louisiana blue crab to Maryland, the McCarthy family presents the authentic flavors of Louisiana and Maryland together at the Blue Crab House in Mandeville.
Crabs are served traditionally or garlic steamed, char-grilled, fried or air-fried in combos and baskets with fries, on salads and sandwiches, in soups, or market price for a quarter dozen. You'll also find traditional Maryland classics on the menu, including crab cakes, cream of crab soup, crab pretzel with homemade crab dip, and crab-topped chicken breast on a Brioche bun, known as the Chicken Chesapeake.
While blue crabs are the specialty, the menu also features shrimp--in-shell, steamed or grilled, by the pound, as well as fresh Rockfish, po-boys, burgers, tacos, duck & andouille gumbo, chicken & sausage jambalaya, red beans & rice, some tasty sides, and a simple menu for the kids. Beer, wine and soft drinks are available. Open 7 days for lunch and dinner.
