If you are okay with takeout crabs, I recommend Crabs-to-Go in West OC at the northeast corner of Route 50 and Racetrack Road (Route 589). They get their crabs form the Gulf of Mexico at this time of year (like everyone else in OC), but I have consistently gotten excellent crabs from them year round.

If you want eat-in crabs, try the Crab Bag at 131st Street. They are also consistently very good.

Keep in mind, restaurants that do offer hard shell crabs this time of the year have them shipped in from the southern part of the U.S. They are still good just not from the Chesapeake Bay. I would call Crab Alley or Crab Bag to see what they have.

Try the Crab Bag on 131st St.  They have great crabs and other platters as well.

Especially at that time of year, I would recommend going to Waterman's and have all you can eat crabs!

Enjoy!

My vote is for the Crab Bag for sit down place but I have also picked some up at Victoria's Seafood on about 78th street and brought them home. Those were reasonably priced and accommodating employees there where you can order ahead and have warm butter ready for you to dip them in too.

The Crag Bag or Watermans are two great choices.  You are eating either Texas or Louisiana crabs.

If you are in the mood for crab legs, you won't find a better option than the Bonfire Buffet

Waterman's on Rte. 50 in West OC sells crabs both as all you can  in their restaurant, or from their fish house.  Rippon's on 119th St. also sell good crabs, and they will steam them for you with or without Old Bay.
