Each year we celebrate the beloved crab, The Best of Texas and the Stable Cocktail Bar host a fun two day festival in Bankersmith, Texas featuring (depending on market availability) fresh King crab and other crabs all at market prices, live music on stage, and additional food and drink specials!
The Fredericksburg Crab Festival provides a diverse type of crabs prepared to mouth-watering perfection. You can also dance away the calories to a variety of popular artists throughout the day on the dance floor, enjoy tasty eats in the food tent, take a Free Souvenir E-Photo, sip on adult beverages (beer, wine, specialty drinks — infamous Signature drinks and Margaritas), and play lawn games. There is something for everyone, including kids!
Don’t miss it! See you soon! During Crab Fest, we will also serve King Crab crab legs. Mallets and crab forks are available either hot with drawn butter or cold with special house-made sauce. Depending on market price, we should also be dishing up pounds of Snow, King, and Dungeness Crab legs, which are served piping hot with melted butter. For the ultimate culinary delight, try The Best of Texas' Crab Feast Platter, which is loaded with an array of all of the varieties of crab.
