New to the crab scene

I'm a Texas boy who can navigate a calf fry with the best of 'em and has owned three smokers, but I just moved out here and know embarrassingly little about seafood. First - can someone explain the procedure? Do I just go find a restaurant, sit down, eat to my heart's content, and call it a night? Do they charge per crab, per whack with a mallet, more if I speak in a Texan accent, what? Most importantly - where do I go? I hear I need to go to Baltimore for the best crabs, but can I get some specifics (especially for people who don't know what they're doing) ? Thanks in advance.
