Bring your appetite and a sense of adventure to enjoy these exotic selections on your next visit to Rustic Inn Crabhouse.
Stray from the ordinary with a platter of golden-fried alligator. Similar in taste to chicken and veal, gator is a versatile meat with a firm texture that’s high in protein, low in fat and delicious when deep-fried to perfection. Share an appetizer of tender Alligator Chunks to start off the meal with a twist, or try them with a mix of favorites and new flavors on the Fisherman’s Platter Family Style.
You love chicken wings, but have you tried frog legs? With a flavor and texture that’s similar to chicken, frog legs are popular throughout the South and around the globe. Enjoy crisp fried, American-sourced frog legs on their own, or try the Fried Gator and Frog Leg combo for a succulent starter. You’ll also find frog legs on the Fisherman’s Platter Family Style to share with the whole crew.
When you picture a seashell, there’s a good chance conch comes to mind. Found inside large spiral shells off the coast of Florida, conch boasts a mild flavor and pleasingly firm texture that lend themselves to a wide array of dishes. It’s especially delicious in Rustic Inn Crabhouse’s Key West-style Conch Fritters, but makes a great light starter with chopped vegetables and spicy tomato juice in Spicy Conch Salad, a specialty that’s reminiscent of ceviche and made fresh in-house daily. Fans of clam chowder will also want to try the Bahamian-inspired Islamorada Conch Chowder, a blend of minced conch, chopped vegetables and salt pork in a spicy red broth.
