Our crabs were delicious, as always. Being from Baltimore originally, we grew up having crab feasts every summer weekend. Living in Pittsburgh for over 30 years now, there is no availability to quality crabs or crabcakes. We look forward to ordering from you every time. (Posted on 3/26/15)
Let me just say that I love your crabs! Living in New York we hardly have fresh crabs and if we do get some, they are not meaty. Your crabs were the best I've had in a very long time. The freshness, the seasonings, the speedy delivery, it was all so great! I surely look forward to ordering lots more crabs from this site! As a crab lover, it's very comforting to know I can get great quality crabs delivered to my door whenever I want, just amazing! Thank you (Posted on 3/26/15)
You guys rocks!!!!
I grew up in Delaware. My best friend and I would either go crabbing or buy a bushel of blue crabs twice a summer. We would sit outside in my backyard and eat crabs all day! It was something we just did. It was fun and something I always wanted to do again. Life takes strange turns and I found myself in Michigan. My favorite food was not available here. I always told my wife, “The one thing I really miss is blue crabs.” One birthday, about ten years ago, my wife found a restaurant that had blue crabs on their menu. We visited, but I was sorely disappointed. The crabs were pre-steamed, then frozen. The meat did not taste nearly as good as I remembered. I vowed that one day, I would get fresh-live blue crabs, steam them myself, and enjoy what I had not had since 1998.
I had been visiting your site for years, loading up the cart, then not ordering because something always came up. This year was different. I loaded up the cart, and checked out! I felt like a kid on Christmas Eve. Then Christmas day came! My two-dozen jumbo live blue crabs arrived on-time and alive! They were feisty and ready for the steamer! My wife, my brother-in-law, his family, and myself were treated to something I only dreamed about—delicious blue crabs!
Thank you for helping me relive my youth! It was very special. I will be doing this again, soon!
Thank you, Harbour House Crabs!

My family and I picked up three dozen Jumbo crabs last week for a feast. The staff was fantastic and helpful. The crabs were chock full of sweet meat and heavy. Thank you for delivering such good quality. (Posted on 5/1/14)
Everything was perfect. I sent the crabs as a gift. They arrived in the morning and were packaged perfectly. My friend is a BIG eater. I wasn't sure if a dozen would be enough. To my delight, he was stuffed after 6 jumbo crabs. So, the feast lasted two days. Best of all, he said "the CRABS were delicious." This was a special treat so I am not sure how often I will be doing this sort of thing. However, if I send out another gift, I will surely use Harbour House Crabs. Thanks for asking!

This was my first order with your company and it was fantastic. Just was a fun, delicious family meal. We ordered a dozen jumbo crabs and it was great. Thanks again and expect another order real soon! (Posted on 5/1/14)
The crabs were fantastic!! They were full of meat and sweet. The seasoning was perfect. They were wonderful with cold beer specifically Sam Adam's October-fest. Next time we will order the jumbos. The service and shipping were great. You run a high quality business. Much appreciated. (Posted on 5/1/14)
The crabs are gone! I didn't have any help but did it all by myself! The crabs were heavy and seasoned well. There is nothing like a blue point. I live in lobster country but wouldn't hesitate to pick a blue point over a lobster. So keep up the good work and I will keep ordering those jumbos! (Posted on 5/1/14)
How to Steam Live Crabs/Re-steam Crabs
When your live crabs arrive it is important that you steam them as soon as possible. Heat a large pot with approximately 2 inches of water on the bottom. Place a rack or steaming basket in the pot to keep the crabs out of the water. Wait until steam is apparent before placing the crabs in the pot. Sprinkle crab seasoning on the crabs to your liking and then cover with a lid. Let the crabs steam for 5 to 10 minutes after steam pushes out from under the lid. The crabs will turn a shade of orange when cooked throughout. Follow the same steps as above but for less time. Please look at the chart below for recommended steam times.
