Where Do We Get Our Seafood ?

As one of several Fort Lauderdale seafood restaurants, we’ve been serving up tasty seafood to residents and visitors of Fort Lauderdale for decades, and we’re proud of it. So what’s our secret? The answer is simple – we provide top-tier service and a vast selection of mouthwatering seafood, including many selections caught in waters not far from Rustic Inn itself. Here, we’ll tell you about how we catch some of our favorite dishes.

Golden Crab
The golden crab gets its name from its creamy, golden shell. The crab thrives on the ocean floor, and it’s largely found in deeper waters off the United States’ southeastern coast, as well as the Gulf of Mexico. Our golden crab is always sourced from the East Coast between Florida and the Carolinas. This Rustic Inn staple is prepared by sautéing with garlic and our Secret Family Recipe.

Dungeness Crab
Native to North America’s west coast, this beloved crab’s namesake is the Dungeness Spit, which extends 6.8 miles from the state of Washington. To ensure the highest quality, all of our Dungeness crab is caught in the waters off the Pacific Coast. Aside from its irresistible garlic flavoring, our Dungeness crab dish also boasts our Secret Family Recipe to deliver an unbeatable seafood experience.

Swordfish
Although the species is common in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans, our swordfish is all caught locally using the classic hook-and-line fishing method to ensure premier quality. This favorite is grilled with extra virgin olive oil and herbs for a full flavor, and complemented by sautéed vegetables and parsley buttered potatoes.
