Call in your order, pick them up & enjoy.

Stone crab season offers Tampa Bay restaurans a glimmer of hope

For Walt Wickman, who owns Dunedin’s Olde Bay Café, Hog Island Fish Camp and Safety Harbor’s Water Oak Grill, the biggest loss comes from the cancellation of the Dunedin Stone Crab Festival. The two-day event usually draws thousands of stone crab fans who travel from all across the Tampa Bay area.

This year, hosting a large festival was out of the question, Wickman said, and other stone crab extravaganzas have also been called off. Despite the loss of festival revenue, Wickman says he sees an upside for restaurants and diners.

“There’s going to be a lot of extra crab on the market because the festivals aren’t going on,” Wickman reasons. Restaurants might have a better chance of attracting would-be festival goers to their businesses, he said, and at a time when restaurants will take all the extra help they can get.

To make up for some of the lost festival business, Wickman has put up a large tent at Hog Island Fish Camp as well as increased the outdoor seating area at Olde Bay Cafe. The stone crabs will also be available for takeout and delivery, a pandemic pivot many stone crab vendors are hoping will appeal to more cautious diners.

Wickman said he expects the price for medium claws to be around $25 per pound, with $35 for large claws and $45 for jumbo ones.
