Soft Shell Crabs

Average User Rating star star star star starAdd To Wish List

Soft Shell Crabs are a true delicacy of the Chesapeake Bay.  Crabville soft shell crabs are shed locally at our facility in Deltaville, Virginia.  When you buy soft shell crabs from Crabville you are buying 100% Chesapeake Bay Blue Soft Shell Crabs.  We offer two forms of soft shell crabs, fresh dressed & frozen.  Use our size chart to distinguish the size that is right for you.

  • Fresh dressed soft shell crabs are crabs that are pulled directly from our holding tanks and dressed out (face, apron and gills are removed) at the time of your order. Each crab is then individually wrapped. These crabs are shipped directly to your door. Please be aware that we try to have sufficient quantities of soft shell crabs on hand from May to August. The soft shell run is very plentiful in May and begins to decrease until August. If you order a size that is not available, we do our best to accomodate your order regardless.
  • Frozen soft shell crabs are dressed soft shell crabs that are individually wrapped and frozen. We freeze soft shell crabs from May to August so people can enjoy them throughout the year.
