We love to venture all over for good food…good crab in particular and it seemed perfectly timed to celebrate my birthday at the Rustic Inn Crabhouse in fabulous Fort Lauderdale in Broward County… Garlic Crabs for everyone! Our server was fantastic and the food was amazing! We love to experience different food spots around South Florida so check out our vlogs and reviews!
The location is so cool with being close to the Fort Lauderdale Airport you can watch the jets landing while you enjoy your garlicky meal! You can order the World Famous Golden Crabs, World Famous Garlic Crabs, Alaskan King and Queen crabs, lobster, shrimp, fish like grouper, mahi-mahi and of course stone crab when in season which is November 15 – May 15. Never had a stone crab…it is one of life’s great foodie pleasures!
If you love clams, oysters or conch they have plenty of that as well but frankly we went for the crabs baby and my birthday celebration was in full swing…literally! The menu is huge! By the way…crazy good caesar salad and yummy glass of chardonnay to round out this delish meal! PS…if you prefer or cannot eat shellfish The Rustic Inn has steaks and burgers too!
The Rustic Inn Crabhouse is about a 30 minute ride from #SoooBoca and a straight shot south on I-95 and super easy to get to plus the parking was a breeze. Whether you are vacationing in Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Boca Raton or even Palm Beach this is a not to miss throwback seafood destination you don’t want to miss out on. Lunch is a great time to go as traffic on I-95 is not too bad at that time of day or after 6 ish at night…we drive around South Florida alot so don’t forget to to use your map app on your phone for directions and traffic updates!
Plan to relax and take your time … enjoy the views, the company you are with and the food especially those garlic crabs sooo yummy…it truly is a special restaurant that has been around for 55 years! Don’t forget to look at the “celebrity” photos all over the walls too… a fun and nostalgic way to spend your South Florida day!
