Moore’s Stone Crab

This is the oldest seafood restaurant under the same ownership in Manatee County.The Moore & Hicks  family has a long history in the seafood business, with over 200 combined years of experience. In 1927 Papa Jack Moore started walking the flats of the bays getting stone crabs by hand. As his bussiness grew he started rowing a boat up and down the coast, sleeping on the beach atnight. The outboard motor came years later . All traps are built by hand even today. Papa Jack worked about 50 to 75 traps ,today our boats work as many as140,000 traps. Our boats work the traps each day from October 15 to May 15 to bring in fresh crabs for the restaurant. The claws are carefully removed and the live crabs returned to the waters to regenerate new ones. A good day's catch will run between 2,000 and 4,000 pounds of claws. Trapping is done between the Florida Keys and Clearwater Beach (Gulf side). During a season, we serve between 350,000 and 400,000 pounds of stonecrab claws. Most of our seafood comes from the local fishermen.
