When the season goes out in November, what kind of Crab Meat is in your Crab Cake? Is it Frozen, Is it Imported, Is it Pasteurized? Probably. At Denson’s Grocery and R&B Oyster Bar you can order our Crab Cake Sandwich once the Season comes in and the meat is available. When the Season ends, you can no longer find Crab Cakes on our Menu. We do it the True Chesapeake Way! And the Season is in!

Next….A Generous Portion of Crispy Neuske’s (Wisconsin) Applewood Smoked Bacon that is cut from a Whole Slab. Then, a Layer of Crispy Romaine. We think it’s important to have the extra ‘Crunch’ with the Romaine. Finally, a couple of Slices of Walnut Farms Home Grown Tomato and finish it up with a Layer of FRESH Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab Claw Meat. That’s a Sandwich…OUR Sandwich! BIG, FAT, JUICY AND LOCAL MONROVIA FARM CHEESEBURGER- How Lucky are we at Denson’s Grocery to be able to offer a Cheeseburger made with All Natural Beef from Black Angus Cattle that is raise with no added Growth Hormones or Antibiotics only a couple of miles (As the Crow Flies) from our Front Door.

We are putting together our Weekend Menu and here is a sample of what we will be offering. Our New Bread Company out of Charlottesville is amazing. Great Flavor and Texture and we also like the idea that we are dealing with a small family owned operation. And....They deliver to us which is pretty nice. Last week's Cliff House Recipe Clam Chowder went over pretty well. Although it is still pretty hot outside, a Good 'Chowdah' is still in demand. While checking out the product line of breads, we could not help but notice a Sourdough Bread Boule is available and can be fresh made for us at Denson's, which made us think of Fisherman's Pier in San Francisco. Bread Boules filled with Creamy Chowder is the 'Norm' in the Golden State Year Round. So this weekend, we will be offering a limited amount of Bread Boules filled with our Creamy House Made Chowder using the Cliff House Recipe. We are also going to be receiving some FRESH Red Snapper that we plan to Blacken and served over Grilled Fresh Cut Sweet Pineapple, Red Onion and Local Tomato with a side of Seasoned Red Beans with Rice and Fried Plantains...A Little 'Island Feel' in Colonial Beach Last week, we were delivered U-10 Dry Pack Scallops by mistake. It was a VERY GOOD mistake, so we intentionally ordered them for this week. You get only 4 or 5 to a Half Pound, but they are sweet, Tender and Delicious! In addition to our Fresh, Never Frozen, Wild Caught, 'Right Off the Boat order of Large Sweet Georgia Brown Shrimp, We will be receiving some Extra Large U-12 Carolina White Shrimp. Served up with Mussels, Clams and Scallops in a Delicious and Steaming Marinara. Finished with Imported Parmesan and served with a Warm Baguette. Getting closer to home, our Chesapeake Bay Farm to Table offerings are what we are known for. Fresh Made Crab Cakes, Fresh Jumbo Lump Crab Stuffed Tomato, Deviled Crab, Broiled Chesapeake Bay Rockfish and Fresh Oysters..All Served with Locally Source Fresh Veggies and Fruits. We love serving FRESH. That is our Commitment to you. Our Wild and Fresh Shrimp is Peeled and Deviened by the order. Our Crab Dishes....Only 100% Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab. We never offer or blend the imported, Pasteurized and Less expensice Blue Swimming Crab in any of our Dishes. We are committed to our Bay and it's Watermen. When the season it Over...So goes our Crab Cakes. Also available for those more interested in a Steak, we serve Thick Hand Cut, Well Marbled Certified Angus Beef, USDA Choice Grade Ribeye Steaks served at your Specified Temp. We feel a Steak Dinner should be more than JUST a Steak Dinner, you should know what you are getting.
