Cooters 27th Annual Stone Crab Fest October 22-25, 2020!


Cooters 27th Annual Crab Fest Oct. 22-25, 2020

It’s Time to Get Cracking!

Clearwater Beach, FL - Dig in to one of Florida’s favorite seafood delicacies at Cooters Restaurant & Bar as the Stone Crab season begins! Cooters 27th Annual Crab Fest returns Thursday – Sunday, Oct. 22-25, 2020. The event features boat loads of fresh Florida Stone Crab plus other crab varieties including King Crab, Snow Crab and Dungeness Crab, all at wholesale prices! In addition, the festival will have live music on stage by local performers and bands, a chalk artist, commemorative t-shirts for sale, and a variety of other food and drink specials.

The sweet, succulent meat of the Florida Stone Crab claw is considered a delicacy and is delicious unseasoned, served hot with butter, or cold with dipping sauce. Cooters will serve the claws both ways. The claws are semi-cracked in the kitchen just prior to serving, and diners are provided with wooden mallets and crab forks.

Although Stone crabs are the headliners, Cooters will also dish up pounds of Snow, King, and Dungeness Crab legs, served piping hot with melted butter. For the ultimate culinary delight, try Cooters’ Crab Feast Platter, which is loaded with an array of all of the varieties of crab. All Specials will be served throughout the entire restaurant and at outside tables. Cooters full menu and kids’ menu will also be available during Crab Fest.

Cooters’ Annual Crab Fest has become a tradition on Clearwater Beach! Adjustments will be made to Crab Fest 2020, so guests may enjoy a safe, but still enjoyable, festival. Cooters Annual Crab Fest is a family friendly event.
