Named Best Crab Cake by Main Line Life, Capt'n Chucky's Crab Cake Co. sells its choice seafood and fresh crab cakes to those in search of deep-sea dinners to take home. The menu includes five varieties of crab cake, ready to reheat for home dinners and International Space Station soirees. Imperial breaded crab cakes ($5.25 each) are expertly shaped by nimble crab-packing hands, as are prize-winning Smith Island crab cakes, available in regular ($6.25 each) and gluten-free varieties ($25/package of four). Customers can also take soups home to lonely bowls and spoons with options that include crab or lobster bisque soup ($6.50/pt.) and Maryland crab soup ($5.75/pt.), which melds crab chunks and veggies into a tomato-based broth and is ideal for reheating on a kitchen stove or over a laundry-room campfire. Sea fiestas get started by taking home platters such as shrimp party trays ($45+) and 50 crab critters ($14.99), which can lounge near Capt'n Chucky's Ultimate Shrimp Salad served by the pound ($18.99lb). Deliciously improvise meals by pairing entrees of bulging crab, shrimp, or lobster cakes with appetizers such as the Cajun sausage and cheddar-packed crabalaya stuffing ($9.99/lb.) or stuffed mushrooms ($1.25 each), which infuse silver-dollar-sized mushrooms with spinach and imperial sauce and are prepared fresh daily by Capt'n Chucky's association of unionized mermaids. For a sweet finish, various Pellman desserts are available daily.
