___________________ Monday 5-23-2011 Well, Stone crab season is over and we extend deepest appreciation to everyone that enjoyed fresh Florida Stone Crabs this past season at Catfish Deweys. We served 19,153.45 lbs of Fresh Florida Stone Crabs this past season. One guy is responsible for several hundred pounds consumed... no need to name names; you know who you are. And yes, of course, we look forward to stuffing you silly again next season. ;) Enough folks, however, have been calling for stone crabs to make us explore the possibility of a similar crab claw... Specifically the Jonah Crab claw. We have a box ordered for Tuesday and our research and development team will be seeing just how many of these Jonah Crab Claws can be devoured. Jonah Crabs are harvested off the coast of New England and are served chilled, cracked and with a mustard remoulade just like Florida Stone Crab claws. Preliminary indications are that they would be considerably less expensive on the menu than stone crabs. I'll let you know, both here and on our Facebook page how the test shakes out. Wish us luck trying to stuff ourselves silly with Jonah Crab Claws and chin up fellow R&D testers... somebody has to do this research. :) ___________________ Wednesday 5-18-2011 Mediums and large for tonight! Fresh! ___________________ Monday 5-16-2011 As you may know, yesterday, May 15th, was the last day of stone crab season. I wasn't sure if anyone was fishing yesterday but just learned someone was fishing. Those stone crab claws, however, aren't going to be ready for delivery today but we WILL get them tomorrow. This means we're going to have the last of the season's fresh stone crab claws tomorrow, Tuesday, May 17th. ___________________ Saturday 5-14-2011 As you may or may not know, we sold out of stone crabs last night. We have more coming in for today, but it's the end of season and they are not as many as we started with yesterday... so clearly, come earlier rather than later. We will be offering medium, large and jumbos all you can eat for as long as possible, but there will come a point - at a time unpredictable - where we stop offering the all you can eat. ___________________ Friday 5-13-2011 Plenty of stone crabs fresh for tonight! ___________________ Monday 5-9-2011 Expecting a good supply of mediums and large in for today and a couple of pounds of jumbos for single portion dinners. ___________________ Saturday 5-7-2011 Plenty of medium and large stone crabs came in for tonight and the supply looks good for Mother's Day, tomorrow. ___________________ Thursday 5-5-2011 We got in plenty of medium and large stone crabs today, but for some reason jumbos are tight. It might be Miami Beach soaking up all the jumbos, but in any case we've leaqrned there are more in the pipeline for Friday and supply looks good all the way through Mother's Day! ___________________ Tuesday 5-3-2011 Just received delivery of fresh Florida stone crabs. We have plenty of medium and large claws for all you can eat dinners (as well as single portion dinners) but only enough jumbos to offer single portion dinners. In fact, I took everything they had for jumbos and colossal but we will treat the few pounds of colossals as jumbos. This means the first few customers to order jumbos will really get colossal stone crab claws. ___________________ ***UPDATE*** Sunday May-1-2011 Just got in some more fresh large for tonight. Twenty five lbs, but that's enough to open the all you can eat button for large fresh Florida stone crabs... while they last. Reminder, stone crab season ends in two weeks. ___________________ Sunday May 1, 2011 We have large and jumbo for tonight available only as one and two pound dinners. ___________________ Friday 4-29-2011 Getting a good supply of mediums, large and jumbo stone crabs in today so we will be offering all you can eat on all sizes as well as one and two pound dinners. Call to make sure they've arrived if you're coming early. ___________________ Saturday 4-23-2011 We've got more stone crabs for tonight but a reminder... we're closed for Easter Sunday. Enjoy the holiday; back to normal hours Monday, 11:30AM to 10:00PM. ___________________ Thursday 4-21-2011 Got in medium and large for tonight but if you're looking for jumbo stone crabs they're coming in tomorrow for Good Friday. Also, this Sunday is Easter Sunday and as with the 26 Easter Sundays before, we will be closed. ___________________ Tuesday 4-19-2011 We've got plenty of medium and large stone crabs tonight for the all you can eat special but only enough jumbos to do single portion dinners. ___________________ Sunday 4-17-2011 Got a better price on large and jumbos today! Can do all you can eat on large and jumbos at a price lower today than it was for Friday's delivery. They had very few mediums, however, so the mediums can sell as single portion dinners for tonight. So far, I'm not hearing if any stone crabs are available for Monday. ___________________ Friday 4-15-2011 Plenty of fresh medium, large and jumbo claws arriving today! ___________________ Tuesday 4-12-2011 We're good on medium, large and jumbo stone crabs for tonight! __________________ Sunday 4-10-2011 Plenty of large and jumbos for tonight, but only a handful of mediums are available which means one and two pound dinners only on mediums while they last. ___________________ Saturday 4-9-2011 Sorry, the days just seem to slide by, but we are set pretty well with medium, large and jumbo stone crab claws for tonight. ___________________ Tuesday 4-5-2011 Plenty of medium, large and jumbo just in! ___________________ Monday 4-4-2011 We have only jumbo claws for tonight but tomorrow we look forward to a delicvery of lots of medium, large and jumbos. ___________________ Saturday 4-2-2011 We're getting a good supply of mediums and large for tonight, but once again, just enough jumbos to offer single portion dinners. ___________________ Thursday 3-31-2011 All that wind yesterday means no stone crabs came in today. We do have a few pounds of medium and large but they can only be put on the menu as single portion dinners tonight... and while they last at that. The good news is I just spoke with the fish house moments ago (3:20 PM) and there's a decent enough catch today that will arrive tomorrow. That means we will have all you can eat medium stone crabs and all you can eat jumbo stone crabs and single portion dinners on jumbo and colossal. ___________________ Wednesday 3-30-2011 Got in a good supply of medium and large stone crabs for today but no jumbos. ___________________ Monday 3-28-2011 Sold out of all stone crabs last night and unless some kind of miracle happens, there won't be any stone crabs for tonight. The good news is there should be good fishing today and that translates into lots of stone crabs for Tuesday. Will put up any breaking news on that as we get it. ___________________ Friday 3-25-2011 Today's delivery brought plenty of medium and large stone crabs, so we are offering the all you can eat special. The jumbos, however, can only be offered as one and two pound dinners because only a few pounds were delivered. ___________________ Sunday 3-20-2011 We have a good supply of medium and large stone crabs, all fresh! ___________________ Thursday 3-17-2011 Happy St. Patrick's Day! Get your green on and come out for fresh Florida Stone Crabs! We got in plenty for tonight, so there will be all you can eat as well as single portion dinners for all three sizes. I also just confirmed tomorrow's order too, so we should be pretty well set all the way through Saturday night. Sunday, we'll wait and see.( Full moon, you kno,w on Saturday night... keep crabs in hiding.) ___________________ Tuesday 3-15-2011 Got in a good supply of fresh medium and large claws for tonight. They only had about 25 lbs of jumbos, so those will be offered as one and two pound dinners. ___________________ Sunday 3-13-2011 Just got in a good supply of medium and large stone crabs. A few pounds of jumbos too... I think we will do all you can eat jumbos while they last. the mediums and large should make it to about 9:00PM before running out. ___________________ Saturday 3-12-2011 We're doing all you can eat (as well as single portion) dinners on medium, large and jumbo stone crabs tonight. Can't say yet what is coming on Sunday, will post early Sunday about supply. ___________________ Sunday 3-6-2011 I know Sundays can be a little short on stone crabs but we do have plenty of medium and large tonight. There's a fair amount of jumbos too, but the all you can eat can be done only with the medium and large. Alaskan Opilio (snow crab) season opened recently and right now we're seeing very good crab legs, crisp shells, full of sweet and rich snow crab meat and they're all you can eat on Sundays and Thursdays! ___________________ Saturday 3-5-2011 We have a good supply on medium, large and jumbo stone crab claws for tonight, all fresh today.
(Also, since the weather has warmed up, we're not seeing any "stickers", a phenomenon resulting from pulling claws in cold weather which causes the meat to stick to the inside of the shell.) ___________________ Wednesday 3-2-2011 We received a good supply of mediums today but only have enough large and jumbos to offer single portion dinners.
