Is there a difference in taste or quality between delivered stone crabs and those bought in-store? The taste and quality are comparable to what you’d find in high-end seafood markets or restaurants, as we prioritize freshness in the delivery process.

What are the signs that the stone crabs I received are fresh? Stone crab claws are a vivid ruby color with hints of pink and orange. The hue may vary somewhat, but it should generally seem rich and homogeneous. Any discoloration or dullness in the crab may suggest it is not fresh.
