Capt'n Chucky's Crab Cake Co in Yardley

msiangal | Mar 27, 2013 06:30 PM

The opening of any new restaurant in Yardley is, for us, a cause for celebration. Even more so when it actually turns out to be good!

We discovered around 5:45 pm today that Capt'n Chucky's had opened up and managed to sneak over there to pick up some dinner before their closing time at 6:30 pm. Everything was either refrigerated or frozen, but heated up very nicely in the oven/microwave.

New England clam chowder: Very flavorful and creamy, with nice chunks of clam. No potatoes, as indicated on their menu, but we didn't miss them. This was even better than the version we had at Legal Seafoods during a recent trip to Boston.

The Smith Island and the Imperial Breaded crab cakes: Delicious! Both were full of lump crab meat and were well-seasoned. The Smith Island was more "crabby", but the Imperial had the nice, crisp breading after heating.

Stuffed mushroom: Also very tasty, with a spinach/cheese filling that I'd be more than happy to eat just by itself!

Lobster bisque: This was the only item we weren't crazy about. Not terrible, just kind of bland.

We googled the restaurant after dinner and discovered that its other locations already have fans here. So glad to have a location near us. Hopefully, they'll start doing specials here too!
