Parker's Crab Shore

Colonial Beach, Virginia


I was introduced to Parker's Crab Shore (overlooking Monroe Bay on the Potomac River) when I was a small child. Colonial Beach was our annual vacation spot where we had our family reunions. My grandfather would set up an open tab for the entire family to use. Some evenings we would all meet at Parker's for supper--we'd push together several tables and order up piles of steamed crabs and spiced shrimp!

Sadly, Parker's Crab Shore is no longer in business. Several years ago the restaurant was sold and is now doing business as Still Waters Grille, which no longer serves steamed crabs.
