Blue Crab


Bethesda Crab House was opened in 1961 by Henry Vechery. Ever since it has been a local tradition. We offer oysters, shrimp, crabcakes, Alaskan King and Snow Crab legs, but our specialty is the Maryland Blue Crab. 

Raw Oysters


We serve the finest oysters on the half shell! Our sources vary so be sure to ask your server which oysters are available that day.
