 Florida Favorites
Stone Crab & Grouper 

They say stone crabs can grow back their missing claws — well,  that’s semi- true and makes a good story.

Stone crabs are served  cracked in the shell, usually cold with a mustard dipping sauce, Though most often served chilled, stone crab claws are quite tasty when steamed and served still warm, doused in melted butter and lemon.

Plenty of Floridians say they’re better than lobster. I've lived in Naples these past 20 years, a expatriate,from Quincy, a city south of Boston and I gotta say no way to that with out reservation!

Captain & Krewe Seafood Market and Raw Bar, The Claw Bar, Truluck's, Pinchers, Deep Lagoon Seafood, Kelly's Fish ...

They’re sweet and firm, and many compare them to lobster .Do it yourself at home. Crack them by wrapping them in a towel and gently hitting them with a mallet, hammer or heavy spoon.

There are 4 sizes, small, medium, large and extra-large.The size of the crab claw doesn't really matter in taste only that the larger claws like lobster tend to have more meat and but cost alot more

Everything you should know about Florida's favorite fish

Atlantic goliath grouper can grow up to 800 pounds (363 kilograms) and eight feet (2.4 meters) in length, it subsists almost entirely on smallish mud crabs. But it seems sometimes the goliath will sometimes make exceptions.

The grouper fish has a mild but very unique flavor, somewhat of a cross between bass and halibut. Red grouper is not quite as firm and has a milder, sweeter flavor than Black or Gag. Many chef's and true Grouper connoisseurs prefer the Red Grouper over the Gag or Black.

Snook Inn  Marco Island Water side Restaurant - offers dining Florida style with live entertainment seven days a week and Week Night All-You-Can-Eat

 The Snook is a classic For fun, go up on the deck to watch the boats come in at the end of the day. "Old Marco" place, a bit touristy, but an on the water, tiki bar with a great happy hour.  

The Snook is a classic
