my most favorite OFFSITE place to eat is....MING COURT...i think it's on I drive, but it's the best chinese food anywhere in the country..(so i think) the atmosphere is cheesy "authentic" chinese decor...the service is always great.
although it IS very expensive, it is TOTALLY worth it!

Texas de Brazil Restaurant

We just tried this for the first time and now have a new favorite restaurant!!! It's located on International drive by the beltz mall. It has a fabulous salad bar with salads, sushi, salmon, and a bunch of other hot and cold items on it, followed by servers going around the room with different roasted meats sliced off for you. You can have as much or as little as you want. They put a little chip in front of you and you turn it to green if you want more food offers and red if you need a break. We had pork roast, filet mignon wrapped in bacon, lamb, flank steak, garlic roasted steak, and chicken. I was soooooooooo stuffed by the time we left there!!!! This place is a bonanza for those on low carb diets. I can't wait to go back!!!!!

It's $39.99 per adult BUT I had found their website before going, and signed up for their e-mail listing and they e-mailed back a coupon for 25% off our first dinner

Wow! Crabs in NJ, who knew? Growing up in NE, lobsters are the thing, but we used to catch blue crabs and my mom would cook them with butter. People thought we were a little different for loving them so much. Then I found out about Maryland.
In MD, crabs are the thing- newspaper on the table, a mallet, and a bucket o'crabs steamed with Old Bay (spice)! Oh, and a cold pitcher of Natty Boh to wash it all down.
Or, if you hate the smell of dead crabs on your fingers the next day - a plate of crab cakes on lettuce. These aren't the bread pucks they serve up in New England; Maryland crabcakes are nearly all meat, barely held together with a minimum of breading.
I can't tell you about crabs in Florida, but if you're ever in Maryland, you're in for a real treat!

Hey, NJ also is full of crabs.. lol You are not considered a veteran until you have ripped the back off the crab and sucked out and eat all that juice and insides instead of washing it. People here eat that yellow mustard.. Now thats the correct way to eat a crab.

I live in Kentucky and I love Seafood b/c I am originally from Long Island. I am visiting in July and I would like to know if Joes Crabhouse has buckets of crabs that you can buy? And how big were your crablegs and were they all you can eat? And we are spending a couple of days in Cocoa Beach and I want to drive down the coast to Ozzies Crabhouse in Grant has anyone ever eaten there? Thanks

Just found this board recently and just saw this thread. We have a timeshare at Star Island (we love it there), and we've gone to the Olive Garden across the street from it (on 192). Last year, we were going to eat there, but it was busy and so we kept on driving up 192 and ended up at Pacino's. We loved it there. The food was great, the atmosphere was wonderful, and it was reasonably priced (aside from the 3 pieces of bruchetta that we got for $6...that was way over priced in our book!)

Sorta like the stuff in lobsters...yuck!

I don't know specifically about the Joe's in Florida, but I think crabs is kinda what Joe's is all about. They have them by the bucket, but they also have like Alaska king crab legs, crab balls, and all sorts of other fried fish, broiled fish, etc.

If you have a Safari club card for Rainforest Cafe, it is also valid at Joe's Crab Shack.
